Sometimes I bring a book and read. This works well when it is a good book. But today, I have a new book THE SWEET FOREVER by George P. Pelecanos. So far it is not bad, not really great either. It is making me want to fall asleep. Maybe this is because I read before I go to bed or maybe it is because I am just not too into it yet....I dont know.
I spend a lot of down time searching the internet. I keep an on on craigslist to see if I can help my mom find items she needs for her new house. But you can only do that for so long too....
so does anyone else have any ideas? I need to be able to stay at my desk to answer the phone should it ring and obviously it has to be something not distracting to others in the office.
So what do you suggest?

I've gotten a little sick of the gnome.
As such, there will be gnome more gnome pictures.
I put a slideshow with all the gnome pictures over on the right side bar.
On the bus to gnomewhere.
Goodbye Gnome. Follow your dreams and let gnomeone stop you.

- I am a veteran and a patriot.
- I am very proud to be an American.
- I would like to think that all Americans share my view but sadly I don't think that's true.
- I support the war in Iraq.
- I support the troops fighting abroad.
- I don't understand why many people don't believe I could support both. It does not have to be a one or the other situation.
Those of you who have served in the military, whether in war or in peace, understand that, given the opportunity, our military could take on any foe, at any time, on any turf. Unfortunately, war is as much about politics as military strategy.I have a few people I'd like to thank for my freedom and the freedom of my children and my country:
Thank you to the 4,445 Americans who died on the battlefield in the American Revolution
Thank you to the 214,938 Americans (both sides) who died on the battlefield in the Civil War
Thank you to the 53,402 Americans who died on the battlefield in WWI
Thank you to the 291,557 Americans who died on the battlefield in WWII (including 3,393 on D-Day alone)
Thank you to the 33,741 Americans who died on the battlefield in the Korean War
Thank you to the 47,424 Americans who died on the battlefield in the Vietnam War
Thank you to the 147 Americans who died on the battlefield in the Gulf War (Desert Storm)
Thank you to the 468 Americans who died on the battlefield in Afghanistan (Enduring Freedom)
Thank you to the 4,000 Americans who have died so far in the Iraqi War (as of 03/2008).
Thank you to all our nations service men and women for volunteering your service to preserve the principles our country stands for.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of
patriots and tyrants. Thomas Jefferson
