Howdy doo. Just a little end of year note to let you know that I haven't forgotten about my little blog and it's handfull of readers. I've been trying to come up with something good to write about for Christmas but I couldn't and now that Christmas has passed it seems silly to write anything about Christmas.

So here we are, a few hours away from the beginning of the New Year and I still can't come up with something I like. I refuse to not write something, even if it comes out a bit lame.

While this has nothing to do with New Year's I just have to mention it. Little Yappers Attack Officer. On Friday, 30 Dec 2005, a police officer in Fremont Ca was attacked by 5 nasty little rat dogs. I guess they didn't like that their owner was being escorted home by a police officer. Can't help it, this just sounds like the start to a bad joke.

Earlier this week I was going to do another on-line vacation. It was going to be about roller coasters around the world. Seems like this would be a good on-line vacation. Guess what, it really isn't. Looking at pictures of roller coasters and amusement parks really isn't all that interesting. Maybe if I was a roller coaster rider the pictures would make me think of roller coastering fun that I already had. 2-D pictures just don't cut it.

You can check out Google to see what I mean about looking at roller coaster pictures.

The Skyrail roller coaster toy looks like fun though.

The other day when I was going through the pictures there were more links to physics classes relating to coasters. That was kind of neat. Perhaps you would like to Bring Physics to Life with Roller Coaster Physics.

The joy of Googling is that you may find better pictures than I did.

I wanted the last post of the year to be more interesting but that just hasn't happened. In less than six hours the East Coast will be into 2006 and more than likely I will be asleep or pretty darned close to it. That should explain why this last post of 2005 is not something deep or very interesting.

Well, Happy End of 2005 and Happy 2006!
Hope the New Year's ups and downs are fun and don't make you puke! :-)

You know, if so many people are really worried about the sanctity of marriage then maybe they should go after nitwits like these first.


Another South Carolina deputy had a lapse of judgment, too, but his was of the matrimonial variety. Sumter County sheriff's deputy Jay Follin was fired for being married to two women at the same time. Follin, 27, was separated from his first wife when he married his second, according to a department investigation. His second wife, the investigation revealed, was already married to another man at the time. Everything became known when the husband of Follin's second wife filed a complaint with the sheriff's department. The couple was separated at the time.
Maybe the sanctity of marriage folks figure that if they can’t make the straight couples tow the proper marriage line how will they ever control the homosexuals.

It’s been some time since we went on an on-line vacation. Today, I’ve decided that Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is the place to go.

Hidden far into the Middle East, neighboring such countries as Saudi Arabia and Oman there lies a young and prosperous country called the United Arab Emirates. It was all desert 40 years ago, but someone discovered oil there. A lot of oil. Now, the country has more money than it knows what to do with. Dubai is a city in the UAE and it's being made into a very, very, VERY amazing place. The tallest hotel in the world, the tallest building in the world, the largest mall in the world... all in one city! All are scheduled to be reality in the next few years.
So let’s start and remember to wander around and enjoy your vacation.

Hey! Let’s start by skiing Dubai! According to BBC World, it’s the largest indoor ski slope and it’s connected to a mall. They provide everything you need to ski with including a ski coat. I only costs $35 to enjoy the slopes. (Volume warning! Turn down your volume before clicking on the link, on my computer it’s pretty loud.)

Before going to ski, make sure to reserve a spot for the breakfast buffet with Santa.

It gets hot in Dubai , so be sure to make time to go to the Wild Wadiwater park. Heck of a waterslide.

Afterwards we can head over to Mall of the Emirates and meet up with a couple of guys that we don’t know. Here’s a pretty picture you can buy. You can get it in malls anywhere but with this you can say you bought it in Dubai.

If money is no object then you can stay at the Burj al Arab Hotel in the Royal Suite. Since you are traveling via the internet you can afford to visit all you like.

You can get a room during the middle of March for approx. $1,89.20

Or maybe you’d rather stay in this suite, which has many more sqare feet then my house, for approx. $1906.11
Room Type: KG BED-225-315SQM-SEAVIEW-DINING FOR 4-JACUZZI DVD-PLASMA TV-LAPTOP-LIVING AREA-WORK DESK (This room is more that twice the size of my house, it's over 2,400 sq ft. The smaller suite is bigger than anywhere I've ever lived.)

If you get into trouble here’s the US Embassy in the UAE but somehow I don’t think you’ll need any government help during your armchair travel abroad.

Well, lunch is done so no more travelling, I have to go back to work. More travelling another day.
