Savannah , GA. & Tybee Island

Well just got back from Savannah GA. & Tybee Island, Was a pretty good week and allot of fun on the beach. Unfortunately its Jelly fish season so had to deal with a few stings. Places to Eat in Savannah : Churchill’s English Pub – Good eats and fair prices for savannah, had a very good atmosphere and a Bar crafted by the same person that did the bar in the T.v. show Cheers.
McPherson’s Scottish Pub – Another good place to get some Scottish food along with some American food. Prices are pretty good and loved the atmosphere.
Dizzy Deans Chicken – The atmosphere was not the best but the prices were real economical for savannah and has good food. I would suggest this place for go orders or during cooler seasons due to the lack of air conditioning.

Place not to eat is : The Lady and sons, a Paula Deen Restaurant. you may know her and her sons from food network.  Only true southern style cooking is their buffet which consists of fried chicken, Mac & cheese & brussle sprouts for around 19$, And you can have a Chicken pot Pie for about 20 Dollars. Don’t know what disappointed me more, the hour and a half waiting in line just to get a reservation or the fact they said 3:30 was when they started taking reservations and they didn’t start till 4pm. after the wait in line I was told it would be 9:30pm before I could eat so between a little bit high prices and long wait I chose to skip this restaurant. Paula may be a wonderful chef and so are her sons, I think she needs to improve on her restaurant service a bit.

The people vs. The Bush Administration.


 It is no surprise that the current administration in Washington D.C. is not paying much attention to the cries coming from the American people. It seems that the working class which makes up the majority or the citizens in the U.S. are being either ignored or put aside. Between the businesses outsourcing to other countries and the lack of true regulation on healthcare and insurance , the working class person is under fire. Seems big business and major industry is the only concern in Washington until election time when allot of empty promises are made only to be forgotten or broken later.

 This current administration seems to be determined to keep us at war and take away rights with the patriot act. Though the patriot act may make it easier to track and watch terrorists it also removes a few rights of Americans. Far as the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush did not know nor did the C.I.A. if Iraq did or didn’t have any yet. They were just taking a gamble in order to get support and funding for the war effort spawned by bush and his administration. Yes, Suddam may have had or was in the process of trying to obtain WMD’s but we didn’t have a shred of evidence.

 So misinformation, Smoke and mirrors plays a big part in the current administration. Terrorism is a real threat to not only the U.S. but to the whole world. I just want to know where are all the U.N. peacekeepers and N.A.T.O. Boys in Iraq? If this world is supposed to be so concerned with the outcome in Iraq then why isn’t their more countries helping the Iraq government to get established and secure. Iraq’s present condition may be a result of the U.S. invasion but the insurgence is also a big reason why it has grown so dire.

  So hard to say bring the troops home out of Iraq and leave the Iraqis
to the slaughter. So hard to say stay in Iraq and watch our soldiers die one by one. It is a very complicated issue for sure. And I wonder if when will we pull out of Afghanistan. You do not hear much on Afghanistan in the news and you never hear any politician say lets bring them home from Afghanistan, at least I haven’t yet.

 There has to be a solution to the middle east issue and I am pretty sure it should not only be a U.S. problem. It should be a problem for the whole world to face and solve. For what happens in Iraq will effect not only the middle east but the whole world.

Family and Friends

 Family and friends not only influence what we are they are a great part of our lives. They are there to balance out our lives, to keep us in check and help us through the times we think are impossible to survive. They also help us celebrate when times are good. We don’t always like what they have to say or the things they do but we always love them for who they are. Some of them we learn to despise and mistrust and that is a shame for every friend and family member we have belong in our lives. Sometimes even a negative influence brings forth a positive result.

 Our family we may not get to choose, but to lose even the worst member of the family is to lose a part of our souls. Friends we may choose but still in a way I believe even friends are something that may be destined more than chosen. Either way they are like an extension of our family. It is better to live with family and friends all around than to live life all alone. I find my self much happier when I am surrounded by those whom I love and have befriended. Family and friends may move apart or even grow apart but I believe that friends and family are always that no matter what happens .

Hope you all have a Happy 4th of July

 For the fourth of July I have posted here some of the most important documents / charters ever written in this great nation. The Declaration of Independence, Bill of rights, Amendments and the Constitution of The United States of America.

Be Safe, Enjoy the fireworks and for god sake don’t drive if you drink.

Drink and Be Merry
