I found this interesting. Perhaps you will also.
Just goes on and on huh? Why am I not surprised. Sheesh!
The Middle East seems to me like a festering hole. Last night, the Clinton News Network (CNN) tells me there are now something like 8 countries rushing to build “the bomb”.
This made me want to know exactly where ARE these countries in relation to one another. Therefore, you may click the thumbnail map above for a full sized view of the area.
I believe this will place everything in perspective for my
As with my other blog, a fair number of people have complained that the old brown color scheme was difficult to read. Not enough contrast for older eyes I am thinking.
With that in mind, I am switching to new theme which hopefully will be easier to read. About the only thing I may want to change on this one, is moving the posting information to the bottom of each post instead of having it appear just below the t
I really do not know just how many Blogs are being published about Costa Rica, but for sure, there have to be about forty or so… maybe more. Some are really, really good! Some are… well… not so good.

At least 40.000 families will join this year the estimated 210.000 families who already live below the poverty line, according to the Balance de la Economía Costarricense study done for the first six months of 2005, prepared by experts at the Universidad Nacional (UNA).

I Don’t Get the 72 Virgins Thing.
There is a lot of terrorism news about suicide bombers these days which got me to thinking about this whole virgin thing.
It is my understanding that those who recruit and train the suicide bombers promise them 72 virgins when they enter heaven. I guess these are wifey type virgins, but I am unclear on this. I mean the term ‘slutty virgin’ sorta seems like an o
