Easter Sunday...

Happy Easter to Everyone Read this blog.

The picture here is of snow from a few months ago.  We had just a little snow this past winter.

I am now reading Postcards from Tomorrow's Square by James Fallows.  I am reading it for the articles on it are China. All of the articles are on China.

I am more than half way through this book on Kindle. I will finish it probably today.

I hope you enjoy this special day.  At Mass at 8:00 a.m,. the church was so filled.  Even the choir in the back of church was filled.

Good Friday today...

This picture is right down from my apartment in Kunming China.  The apartment building are very big in China.

I am watching Super Size Me, a movie about eating McDonald's for 30 days.  After this movie came out McDonald's stop offering super size.  Mississippi is the fattest state in the union.  One of four people there are way overweight.

I have not watched this movie for some time.  It is so funny.

I am now reading Book Lust about books that she reads.

Not much else happening here today, on Good Friday.

Tuesday once again....

Hi again:

This picture is my wife.  This picture was taken a few years ago as you can tell by the three stockings behind her.

Her hair is now blond, its natural color.

I keep saying next week she will be here but I don't know when she will arrive in Oregon. She has never been to Oregon at all.  So much to show her when she is here....

I am now reading Papal Sin by Garry Wills.  Like him I do not follow what the Pope tells us. Our new pope is way too conservative for me.  I don't know when we will ever get a liberal pope.  I hope it happens during my lifetime.

Five bars of gold are in England.  So as I pay the custom duty fee they will ship five bars to me.  I will sell two bars of gold (each bar weighs 2.2 pounds or 1 kilo).

I will save three bars of gold for the 84 bars of gold are sending to me after Helen comes.

Each bar of gold is worth $54,000 so I will go from being a poor man to a rich man.

We are buying a house when Helen arrives here. We have one picked out already.  I will show you some pictures after we buy that house.  I have some on my computer now, but it too early to show them to  you.

This is what happening with me now.

Tuesday, Tuesday so good to me....

This is what our church look on Christmas.

I just finishing reading Born On a Mountain Top On The Road With Davey Crockett and the Ghosts of the Wild Frontier.

A few lessons for the book.

1. Was he born a mountain top in Tennessee? No, he was born in a valley

2.  Did he kill a bear when he was 3? No, just part of the legend.

3.  Did he serve a term in Congress;  Yes.  Even though he was of the same party as Andrew Jackson, he opposed the president's policies.

4.  Did he die at the Alamo? Yes, a horrible death.  Half of the book is about his death.

If you are like me you first came to know Davey Crockett on Walt Disney show.  The three hours of Fess Parker.

There was movie with John Wayne I never saw.

It is a very good book and I recommend it to you if you want to read a great book.

I am now reading Priests Why, a Failed Tradition.  It is Garry Wills latest book and once again it is a good book. I have another history book I will read next. 

Not much else happening here today,

Today is my father's birthday.  I will call him soon. I got him four books from Amazon which will delivered over the next week.

March is the big birthday month.
