It gets pretty crazy at this bar as you can see
Stupid ignorant Mexican kids. If you love the Mexican flag more than the American flag then leave this country and go live there.
I don't wanna see a bunch Jackass drop outs on the news holding up a flag of another country in America. Be proud of your heritege whatever it is but Be American First HERE!
Someone please deport these kids across the fence, then we'll see how fast they start waving the red white and blue.
I don't wanna pay for, or have my tax dollars go towards 12 Million ILLEGAL aliens in anyway shape or form. We need to put our national guard or military on that fence. I love Bush to death but next election "We" need to elect a president who has some BALLS and will protect our borders!
I'm tired of pushing #1 for english for customer service on the phone and 2nd generation kids who can't even speak english in our school system.
Assimilate or get the Hell Out!
Those kids who tore down and burned the Mexican flag in that school are Hero's in my eyes and true Patriots. The hell if I'll let someone burn, tear or dimeaner my flag in my country in front of me. What nerve of some ass to lower our flag and raise the colors of another
My blog rant for the day. My words are probably harsh but oh well
"A Saturday Night" of fun. Kirstie and I went out to dinner to "Outback Steak House" in Poway where there was an hour and a half wait, but just as we stepped in and gave them our names Kirstie located a two table booth at the far end of the bar where it's first come first serve. We got lucky and ordered some drinks and appetizers. Kirstie ordered ribs and I ordered a fat steak with garlic mash potatoes. An hour and a half went by which to us seemed like 20 minutes filled with fun conversation and just as we finished our names get called. I get the bill and just as I reach for my wallet I muttered "oh Shit!" I can't believe I left my wallet at home on the bathroom counter. I never leave my wallet anywhere! Luckily Kirstie had some extra cash in her purse along with a gift cert we got for our anniversary. I actually try this to get out of paying for dates. We went back home to get my wallet and then met up with Clint and Jackie at Camel Moutian's "The Irish Pub". A pub now owned by a cool bartender who always took care of me while I went there. As soon as he saw me walk in the front door he always had a pitcher of my favorite beer waiting. Talk about funny conversation all night there with Clint and Jackie. I can't go into details but definitlty memorable converation to say the least with great bar atmosphere. Fastest 3 hours I can remember in a bar for a longtime. Good times....
Started out celebrating Kirstie's 3oth with a family dinner at Fudrucker's then back to our house for Ice Cream Cake from 31 Flavors. The next morning on Kirstie's actual birthday her & I both drove up to Disneyland and stayed at a hotel right across the street from the entrance which was a short walking distance in and out. Kirstie's still in a Cam Walker so we rented a wheelchair and I strolled her throughout the whole park. The best part of the wheelchair was...No Lines!!!! We went into any ride we wanted to and just waited a few minutes. The park wasn't that crowded to begin with but at least we didn't have any waiting time.
Later on in the afternoon we left the park and checked into our hotel at around 3pm. Went to the lil convience store and loaded up on wine and beer. Hooked up the ipod and some speakers in our room and partied away. I have this little sub so it was shaking our room LOL. Had dinner about 5pm at the "Tony Roma's" bar which was a crowded restaurant. We saw lot's of San Diego people wearing their Charger gear for the Sunday's game against the Raiders. Lot's of LA Raider fan's too. We went back to our hotel room and concealed about a 6 pack of Heinakens, and four small mini bottles wine in our clothes for our return trip to the park. Don't ask how we did it we always do though. Pretty funny as were walking in and you can hear some small chinging of cans and bottles. But we did it as Security only checked our backpack. once into the park we emptied our adult beverages into our Minnie & Mickey bottles for visual concealment and the rest into the backpack for later. We had a load more fun as you can imagine, especailly on the rides. Kirstie kept dropping cans and bottles in the restroom as she poured the beverages into the mickey sports bottles making her nervous and the situation funny. Anyway we had a fun day and birthday for Kirst.

This coming December Kirst & I have planned to go to San FranFreako for a couple of days. Well since voters and politicians thought it was okay to kick out our military from recruiting kids in high school and colleges and basically tell the rest of the world that our men & women in uniform are not welcome, We've had a change in plans and destination. I know SF is pretty wacky and far left wing but this changes everything and my opinion of that town. I love the city and I have many fond memories of the town and plenty of friends who live there, but I'm totally disgusted with the city and it's “Bigbuck's coffee” kool-aid drinkers. I can only hope another great fire will take place and level the city.
"Sometimes to save something you have to destroy it" Comes to mind. If SF is ever in need of assistance I sure hope the National Guard and Military take a very very long time to get there. They truly do live in the fog
I'm going to spend my money in some other town
Opening night and I was very lucky to get a ticket with my girl. The theater seating was comlete and full with Devil Dogs. Let me tell you all something, when the movie was over applause was next to nothing. Crickets would have been louder Everybody was mutteing "crap" under their breathes. Big, big disappointment.
I give it
(5 negative stars)
Wait for a boring night to rent
Night out with our friends, something we haven't had a chance to do in a while. Had a few drinks at "Islands Restaurant" and ran into an old friend. Watched the world series for a bit and moved on over to "Pitchers", a little hole in the wall bar and met up with some friends. Few rounds of pool and another run in with a friend who I haven't seen since Jr. High School. A night of old faces. Kirstie & I just pretty much chilled the night away, it was cool to hang out with our friends for some good laughs.
A few pics of the evening

I am sore as hell as today is the first day I'm back at the gym. It's been 3-4 months since I've routinely gone....now it begins!
Also this week I'm making a trip out to the Home Brew Mart so I can make two batches of beer in time for both Thanksgiving & Christmas. I'm going to make a Light Pilsner & Pale Ale. I haven't made a batch in over two years and before that YEARS. My last batch everyone loved, it was a Honey Wheat.
The whole family left Friday afternoon to a cabin in Palomar Mountain Gina had gotten for us. Everybody had such a ball especially the kids. The first day we pretty much just relaxed with some wine and games. The cabin was called the Lilac and was build by the Bailey family in 1925. The cabin was very old and yet very historical. The interior was filled with antiquities and memoirs of past guests. Guests seemed to leave items behind and write a diary in a general guestbook. It made it all that much interesting. It was a two story cabin with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The atmosphere of the cabin had such a kind and cozy feeling to it. We all easily felt at home there. Kirstie is still in her cast so it was difficult for her to get around easily. All who were present were my parents, my sister Gina, Kirstie and our two kids Anthony & Dario.
Saturday we all woke up early, made coffee and Gina made Banana pancakes for breakfast. They were so tasty. A little before noon we traveled a few miles down the road and went to the Palomar Observatory. All these years and I had never been there. I can’t believe how monstrous the dome is and the picture I took does no justice to the actual presence there. After the Observatory we then had lunch at the only nearby restaurant. A vegan restaurant. Eeeewww, please change the menu. That was my only complaint. I actually had time to read a book which I haven’t done in such a longtime, I read “The Da Vinci Code”. I was glued all weekend. Dario & Anthony got to run around a lot outside. They would both take Gina’s dog “reily” for walks and pick up sticks. All in all a much need get away and opportunity for our family to get away and spend quality time.
Our next family get away will hopefully be Big Bear Mountain for some Boarding in January

I still haven't decided what to do with this new tool Sign Guy has provided. I'm thinking it could center around one of my hobbies. :bukakke: (I'm sorry, that's a habit, not a hobby)
I do know, if my blog gets off the ground, it won't be sign or neon related. That's what the forum is for.I have 2 hobbies and if I can get enough interest from others in either one of them, we'll fly with it. If not I do have a plan B.
#1. Politics. I hate politics, but it is a fact of life. If you check your daily papers or news programs you'll find that the vast majority of articles and items concern or include politics, government, or authority. My interest in politics is libertarian of nature. One of the libertarian goals is to return to the very limited Federal Government envisioned by our Founders. The goal of most politicians today is quite the opposite. If my blog centers on politics, I will invite all opinions, but I will call you an Ass if necessary. Please feel free to do the same. The reason for my interest in politics can be summed up, I guess, by likening it to the inability to take my eyes off a really ugly woman.
#2. Current events (in country, preferrably) and the reasons behind them. This is closely related to #1 in that some things that happen in this country are a direct or indirect result of the actions of politicians. In fact, IMHO, far too many things are guided by and controlled by the actions or inactions of politicians. I've always been interested in what reasons others give for certain happenings.
Please feel free to tell me what you think of #'s 1&2. Like I said, I do have a Plan B.
Well close to 10, finished at 10:30pm. What a pain in the ass wall. Staggered shingle surface, what a pain for the pattern and lousy uneven surface for lettering. But it's done and looks good annnd brightest sign in the center of course. I wish I had a pic of their old sign before they revised it.
Loooong day ahead of me today before I leave on a short weekend trip. Fabrication of channel letters, removal of channel letters then installation of channel letters. It's a channel letter day!
This may even serve as a reminder to myself. Aaaaand if I can squeeze some time in I can even finish up some lobby signs and dimensional letters for other installations next week. If i'm lucky i'll be done by 10pm tonight........
