What if...

As I was going to sleep last night I heard the disc jockey musing to himself what would be some of the more minor implications if Hillary was elected President. So it got me thinking. What would we call Hillary and Bill? Madame President and the first Gentleman?? Na, they'll probably go with Madame President and former President.

Also what would Bill do while in the
White house? Will he re-decorate? I would like to think so.

Lastly if Hillary is elected I hope Bill wears white gloves and little pillbox hat for photo opts. It would make my day.

Also while I was looking for some pictures of Bill Clinton in a ladies hat I stumbled on to these gems. Enjoy.

Best Movie Weapons a Revision

I heard through the Grapevine that they recently released a list of the 10 best movie weapons. According to 2000 moviegoers by 20th Century Fox, this is the list of 10 best weapons.

1. Lightsaber (Star Wars)

2. .44 Magnum (Dirty Harry)

3. Bullwhip (Indiana Jones)

4. Samurai sword (Kill Bill)

5. Chainsaw (Texas Chainsaw Massacre)

6. Golden Gun (James Bond - The Man With The Golden Gun)

7. Bow and arrow (Robin Hood)

8. Machine gun (Scarface)

9. The Death Star (Star Wars)

10. Bowler hat (James Bond - Goldfinger)

Some of these seem reasonable (Machine Gun, Lightsaber, Chainsaw) but you know me, I've got to add my own. So here are some great movie weapons that I think they missed. Be sure to add yours in the comment box.

1. The Flying Guillotine

I remember this watching Sunday afternoon movies on channel 26

2. The Wolverine aka Weapon X

3. Xenia Ziragavna Onatopp, Famke Janssen character in 007 Golden Eye, with her unique method of assassination - Crushing lovers or foes with her tightly toned thighs.

4. Feddy Krugger's glove

A Few Pictures from San Fransico

On our recent trip to San Fransisco we visited a few places that we have never been before. These pictures are from in and around the Japanese Tea Gardens. The Garden's were beautiful now but it appears they are even more stunning in the Spring and I would like to go back to see them then.
