If you want some background music while you are working on the computer, Pandora is pretty cool.
Here is an example of a Radio station that you can setup.

Aircraft of the Month

Have you seen the New Honda Jet?
It's Beautiful.
Like the Hondas from the past.

I have a 1986 ATC in the Garage.
Now that has great styling.

They must have fired the design team for the Ridgeline.
That car/truck thing is ugly.

PayPal Sucks

OK Heres the Story.
I bought some new tires and wheels for my truck.
I found an ad in the online version of the Recycler.
So I had my old Tires and Rims that were still in decent shape.
I auctioned them off on Ebay. They listed for $40.00 and final bid was $40.00.
The winning bidder paid with Paypal. He emailed me through Ebay and gave me his Cell phone number, so a few days later I met him at the baseball park and gave him the Tires and wheels.
A month goes by and then I get an Email from Paypal saying that the $40.00 deposit was on hold.
They say that they were investigating the transaction.
A week goes by and no word from Paypal, so I Email them, and they say that the use of the funds was fraudulant. They also say that since I didn't ship to a verified address, and didn't have a business account I wasn't eligible for protection. basically the SOB that took my tires probably ripped me off. I don't know for sure maybe he wasn't even at fault? Maybe it was his girlfriend pissed that he was buying tires.
Anyhow it was only $40.00, but thankfully it wasn't a whole lot more.
Can you imagine if I had sold a motorcycle or something?
All of Paypal's propaganda led me to believe that it was a safe and reliable way to do online transactions. As far as I am concerned $40.00 is a cheap lesson learned that Paypal can not be trusted.

Missing Links

Iraq War

Remember back in the First Gulf War.
Iraqi Soldiers invaded Kuwait, and it took a coalition of forces to drive them back.
Mostly U.S., but also British and many others liberated Kuwait.
Well Bush 41 never toppled Saddam Hussein, so one of the legacys was that The Al-Rashid hotel had a mosaic installed on the floor in the hotel Lobby that resembled Bush.
It wasn't a particularly flattering picture, and I guess in Arab culture that is very disrespectful to walk on someones picture.

Sometimes I think that Bush 43 was hopeful of going to war with Iraq just to tear out the floor of the Al-Rashid Hotel.

Somehow, I don't have a problem with that.

Arhh Matey Yo Ho Yo Ho

The Refurbished Pirates Ride is Open at Disneyland.
Austin and I rode it.
The additions are all good.
The most impressive is the Smoke screen Video of Davey Jones.
Here is a video with Johny Depp's impression of the ride.
