While driving to work yesterday I listened to the Limbaugh’s morning update talked about Senator Pelosi answering the question about when, she thinks, life begins. It’s one of the questions asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on August 24.
As promised in the previous post, here’s the update on my HHO system.
I’m sad to report that the system has not worked well yet. Ever since it was installed the gas mileage plummeted. Usually I got 32.5 to 34.7 miles to a gallon with one exception of over 41 mpg (the mileage was 104.7 and I filled up only 2.505 gallon- but it was a rare happening right after I’ve changed the oil and spark plugs) highway miles. With the unit installed I got only 29.9 mpg highway and about 27.9 city driving. Continue reading “HHO Update”
After we’ve got home from Pismo I picked up Duke from his hotel. When I dropped him off I told him that we wanted him groomed and had his hair trimmed or shaved.

Because they like to eat and they eat almost anything, I tried to give them dog food one day, and to my amazement they seemed to enjoy it. You can guess the rest of the story……. Here’s the picture of Kimi, the smaller of the two, eating a large piece of dog food. If you’re interested in Red Ear Sliders, visit http://www.redearslider.com/
Last night I read the January 2008’s issue of Popular Science, and I came across an interesting article about Svalbard Vault. Thought you may be interested in reading it, too. Click here to read the entire article from Popular Science’s website. Continue reading “Svalbard Vault”
The date was August 19, and the year was 1986 when I left Indonesia for the States to go to Fresno State. I still remember I wore a white collarless polo shirt and a pair of black pants when I came here. My high school friend who left a year before me picked us (my older sister and I) from LAX and we spent one night at his apartment in Santa Monica. Continue reading “Twenty One Years Ago Today”
