Feb 11th 2013 12:40AM The beaches outside Leon, Las Penitas in particular ARE great places to surf. see: http://playaroca.com, the drive on the new US sponsored highway from Leon is only 13 miles or 20 minutes and the beaches and surf are right out in front of the hotels, no driving necessary. Also has great wild life reserve called Isla Juan Venado, where turtle nesting is protected, but also have crocodiles, iguana's and birds galore, etc. just a 5 minute walk down the beach from the Playa Roca Beach Hotel.
Nicaragua is the largest but least inhabited country in all Central America, so the diversity is breath taking, from the adventurer to now the tourist, she's right it has come a long way.
N. Nicaragua doesn't get the hipe of the southern regions of San Juan del Sur or Granada, but it does have less people and more to see, it's BIG with rain forests to active volcanos and the largest stretch of non hassle beaches.

Oct 9th 2010 12:21AM Boy, that makes me, as a true blue Dodger fan, so happy to have Frank back at the helm. We couldn't do anything without his day to day sacrifices to "our" team. Maybe continue our great successful non world series run. Vinnie S, Sandy K, Tommy L and Frank Mc, what a complete line-up of stars.
Sep 11th 2010 3:57PM I think playing was an important step. Each time she wins a match she has media time and THEN she could tell the "story of wrong" more than once. Press conferences where the mikes and writers and video are on, speak about it, get it aired over and over. More wins more talk, more viewers, more awareness OUT to the public. Pulling out would be big, but in days time the "shock" dissipates in the publics mind, lost momentum. If she wins the thing announce to the WORLD that if tournament is not open to all, she will NOT defend her title. Now that's making a statement that doesn't get buried in short memory and forgotten.
Jul 31st 2010 3:45PM How about prorating his 1961 salary with todays salary and give the same percentage bonus to Gentile in todays dollars? Now that would be something, the money would have spent well in 1961 but $5000 grand now is nothing, not equivalent to what it would be today. He deserves it, fairness deserves it, his family deserves it.
Jul 13th 2010 5:43PM I am glad loyalty is worth something, especially since the "Fish" isn't the player even close as what the Laker's need as another year will unfold. "Fish" played like Babe Ruth in his last game, 2 home runs but was batting only over .200 and quit. He is a "Laker", but should bow out and accept a secondary role immediately, coach from the bench and enjoy another ring. Blake should run the offence and make the Fish the 2nd unit point. Lakers would lose a lot less from the bench then as they do now with Farmar running amuk. Brown is a spark plug, not a leader. As I understand, the new guards coming into the league are not getting any slower but Fish IS.

Subject: Sharing the Wealth
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy??? out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work f or without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”
--Dr. Adrian Rogers
Long time no hear. I am, as most people who even have time to think, come up with different scenario's for our world's delima's,
much less our US of A's.
What to do with all these people and their desire to live. What responsibilities does anyone have to anyone or anything outside our
own little worlds? I spend a lot of time, probably too much at times, on what DO people do for what they get or have.
A quite a few people get a lot for DOING very little, and a lot of people DO a lot and get very little. I worry about that.
I do not worry or care about anyone who DOES nothing, if they could, and wants something for that nothing.
I liken it to Jesus supposedly stating to the multitudes he was feeding that if he could teach a person to fish
that person could feed himself and family for ever. So for me, if I taught someone to fish, gave him a pole and he
didn't use it, then came to my door for food, I either would close the door or give him a worm, almost stating in a way,
"Fuck You" then. If he had no hands, I would teach his feet.
Actually, with talk of equality written into this nation’s founding papers, the scenery never looks right. The
contrast between rich and poor grows, and this year has been no exception. As an acquaintance on the street puts
it: every year there are more20homeless people and every year the limousines get longer. Greed spelled with a "capital"ism "G"!
The numbers show a radically skewed society. Rather than pages of numbing statistics, I’ll sketch a couple of
facts, the first from sociologist Steven Rose. If you drew a line on a building three stories high to represent the
distance between the lowest and the highest family income, the average (median) income sits at only 10.5 inches off
the ground and half the nation is clumped below that. Second, despite the prodigious numbers of poor, housing
for them is so scarce that of the 3,141 counties in the United States, in only 4 can a person making (working, not pimping) minimum wage
afford a one-bedroom apartment.
Very rich people are hidden from us because they want it that way.

Jan 8th 2009 9:10PM Who? USC could so dominate that they would'nt have to score again in the 2 nd half, it was over, OVER. Nice comeback in garbage time. USC could have scored 100 points after the game is out of reach all year long, but didn't, why? Carroll has respect for the game that nobody else has. 3 shutouts with 2nd and 3rd teams on the field? It is called class, not ego. Try to play USC schedule and only average under 10 points a game.
Jan 8th 2009 8:58PM Check out the last 7 year stats for 1st round choices, wins, offense and defensives stats, BCS wins, trophy winners, etc, etc. Why does USC have to cow tow to anyone? Who has played a better out of conference schedule and won, and mostly away games (Nortre Dame, Auburn, Virginia, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Nebraska, etc.) Lucky is all it says for every loss, including Texas.
