A Train of a Morning...

I drove into West Point this morning hoping to see Big S.  I hadn't seen him in months and George had said he was hanging out at the shopping center across the river.   No Big S.  It was just too cold at 52 degrees.  I did notice the train signal had just turned yellow meaning a train was on the way.   I turned around, parked at the bank, and sat on the very same bench where Ferret used to sleep when he was homeless.  How he could get any sleep on that cold concrete I will never know, but he did.  

Soon, a train came roaring through downtown.  This always perks me up and I get excited.  The train must have been a 100 cars long as it took forever to pass.  I always like the myriad of graffiti on the cars as they roll by.  I always wonder what bored kids were in a train yard with cans of spray paint to do this.   I imagine gangs of Latinos marking their territory with gang signs - letting the world know that this is their space.  "This hopper car is now property of the little muchachos of East Miami."

The phone was ringing when I arrived home shortly.  It was mom.

"Come get your Diet Cokes and cigarettes," she said. "They are on the back porch."

Yee-Haw!!!!

"What are you doing up so early?" I asked, amused.

"Seeing about you, silly!" she said, matter-of-factly.

I got a good laugh out of that.

Well, I am now enjoying my Cokes as I  browse the World Wide Web and write.   I also took two Klonopin and they will affect me in about an hour.   I shouldn't take them so frivolously, but I needed some extra comfort and oomph this morning.   I still feel a little stir crazy.

What is it about trains? I love them. I wish people wouldn't paint graffiti on the cars, it's so degrading. It's 75 degrees here this morning and threatening thunderstorms. I think I'll take some pain meds for this blasted knee and take a morning nap. Ha.

I too always wonder about the young people who put their graffiti on the train cars. Some of them have obvious talent, a lot of them just do the same o same o.


Enjoy your day Andrew. It's sunshiny here and cool but I intend to get outside and take some pictures.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Hey,

I'm just browsing sites for the children of Haiti.

I'm doing my part for a non-profit group that is dedicated to
building oppurtunities for the kids in haiti. If anyone here wants to give money then do so here:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They provide children in Haiti books and teach them.

And yes, they're real.

It would be great if you could help

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.
