Adrienne and Conrad were standing in line at Hollywood Video picking up a couple movies and Conrad was sitting quiet in her arms. Adrienne: I love you. Conrad: I love you too, mom. Adrienne: Why do you love me? Conrad: Because Adrienne: I love you because you smell like cookies. Conrad: I love you because you smell like...life. He said it just loud enough for the young woman checking out the videos and the other customer in line to hear and they all just got real quiet.

STILL haven't read the book? www.amazon.com "Unleashing The Warrior Within" Richard Machowicz (www.bukido.com) So far, specifically due to this book and the class I've taken: 1.)Lost over 50 pounds...replaced with lean muscle. 2.)dropped about 80% of my overall stress and worry and anger. 3.)I've overcome and re-evaluated several huge fears and come out stronger and better equipped to deal with everything. (after MANY years in therapy...this book/course was what made IT happen...results finally) 4.) regained confidence and joy (and then some!) I had not known in YEARS. I took back my life. I took the red pill. 5.) I can do 100 pushups. 100 situps. 100 squats.100 really fast jumping jacks. THEN I can still focus and train with a bunch of really awesome people learning to protect myself (and others too) and "show up" in the event of threat. Sound hokey? Sound impossible? Sound great? I challenge you to read this book.

I got the companies tickets to the Dodger game last night, and went to pick up my brother and he had rented a limo so we could ride in style. Woohoo! Great game, great company, great wheels, sitting down with the beautiful people. Nice.

When those hardy european miners got tired of pushing those mine carts through tiny dusty tunnels they bred tiny horses. This one is actually full grown. Adrienne do you have anything to add? Adrienne? Hello?
On Sunday I hopped on my bike and took my caboose up through Monrovia Canyon park and into the Angeles National Forest. Ended up making it up to White Saddle. Woot!

Finally getting the spring fertility celebration pictures up. Sorry dad.

I really like this picture I grabbed from my mothers garden. The lighting wasn't great but it's still a cool abstraction.

Those of you that are familiar with the S.G.V. know the wild parrots that buzz around in a cloud of NOISE. I managed to get close enough to one grab this picture.

Ed? Is that you?

I was reading an article on CNN this morning when I ran across this paragragh: Callaway produces about 30 percent of the butterflies in-house. The rest come from butterfly farms in the tropical rain forests of Malaysia, the Philippines and Central and South America. I never really thought about butterflies as a product. Weird. I guess almost anything can be. On a slightly different note, Monrovia is inundated with butterflies. All the rain this year seems to have produced a huge amount of butterflies. Love it!
