Congratulations President Barack Obama

on Saturday, January 24, 2009

Congratulations President Barack Obama in your victory and inauguration as 44th Presidents of the United States of America and for being the first African American elected into such an important position. You bring hope to a country and also the world that is in need of drastic change. My fellow citizens of the United States and of the world are watching and demanding that much needed changes are actually made. The economy, jobs, health care system and education just to name a few.

During the election campaign, many people here in Italy would ask my opinion. Who I thought would win, who I voted for etc. Italians were very curious to know, in a good way. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi made the comment about President-Elect Barack Omaba that he was "intelligent, young and tanned". Things that make you go mmmm.

Marsa Alam Egypt

on Monday, January 19, 2009

Here three photos from one of two trips that we went on to Marsa Alam Egypt. A local mosque in El Qusier Egypt
Low tide along the beach in front of our hotel. Yes this is the Red Sea, look how clear the water is! The little boy was the son of a German couple staying at the resort. He was such a cutie and oh so well behaved!
My personal computer technician and yours truly standing next to a 4-wheel scooter and its owner in El Qusier Egypt. Basically it was a normal scooter with big "training wheels" in the back.

Quitting Smoking

on Monday, January 12, 2009

I am trying to quit smoking. I am down to half a pack or less a day, started this last week. Consider that I used to smoke a pack and a half a day. The computer technician has also greatly reduced how much he smokes a day. Then again, he's been fighting a nasty cold the last couple of weeks so needless to say he has not had much of a desire to smoke. The computer technician said that if I am able to quit completely or GREATLY reduce how much I smoke that he would buy me the newest version of the iMac. Yes this is a good incentive for me to quit, but at the same time I am happy with my current iMac, which is about two years old. The new iMacs are nice, with a bigger screen compared to what I currently have but I do not like the gray and blac design. Other than that there are no differences between the new iMac and what I have, at least in my opinion. Then again, I'm not the Mac expert my other half the computer technician is.

2009 New Year's Goals

on Sunday, January 04, 2009

I've made some goals for 2009. I prefer the word goals versus resolutions, the word resolutions does not seem as "serious" as goals. What are your goals for 2009? Mine are rather simple and short:

- Actually keep in touch with friends. I have been such a slacker in that regards and I am going to improve.
- My computer technician husband and I finding new jobs, but not here in Italy, within Europe and not in the United States.
- Healthier lifestyle.
