It Finally Arrived!!

What am I going to do with it?
How will I spend it?
Where will it go?
Will I end up doing anything with it that I that will add to an extensive list of good memories?

Time off of work, that is what IT is. 2 days plus the weekend equals 4 days off.

Well I can tell you right now that I am going to that pond society tour tomorrow - not all of it, I have determined 5 homes that I will go to to view their properties and ponds. I will undoubtedly also join their club. Why not? It might be a year or more before I can actually get a "real" pond, but I like my little ponds so no big deal.

Will I go up north to get the rock for my waterfall? Dunno yet, I am thinking of another location that is about 40-50 miles from here. There is another location about 30 miles from my house that should have some nice rocks - but I am not sure about that location. Then, yet more locations - east and then north - probably a good 40 mile drive.

You see, I am not a fan of driving anymore. I hate it…

Friday

I am not sorry, really, for all the posts I have made in concern to boycotting the entire state of California as they apparently are inclined to do to us. Us Arizonans spend BILLIONS of dollars per year JUST in tourism over there alone. Now, a local businessman has stated he will pull out 1.5 million in money he spends in CA with his business. You will see more and more of this until CA's hard stance is reversed.

If they don't like the bill Arizona Immigration SB1070, FINE, argue it out, call on the Feds to sue AZ, whatever, but boycotting an entire state? WHO are you hurting? That's right, not just "white" people, but hispanics, blacks, asians - everyone that lives here!

But I'll take a breather off of that subject for a moment's time, since this blog also serves for my daily journal and get onto that. It was a very nice revelation to find out that I CAN take rocks off of Tonto forest land without a permit, I just can't take that MANY rocks. I…

Boycott San Diego And Anaheim

Heya, San Diego, do you like the hundreds of millions of dollars that are spent in your city, each and every year, by the 2,000,000 (that's TWO MILLION) visitors that come from ARIZONA?

It's a well known fact that Arizonans and especially Phoenicians LOVE to escape the desert heat and take trips to San Diego to cool off on the beaches. That's hotel, entertainment, food, related support institutions.

Since it appears the entire state of California is jumping on this "Boycott Arizona" bandwagon, let's BOYCOTT THEM! Don't go to San Diego this year to cool off, instead, take a trip to Colorado and go on a white water river rafting adventure. It's GREAT fun and is really something everyone should have on their "things to do before I die" list.

Heck, Arizona has it's own white water river rafting - through the Grand Canyon and also through the Salt River Canyons.

While we're at it, let's stop going to Disneyland; Six Flags Magi…
