Just chilling...

Sitting about enjoying the latest episode Rocketboom and having a soda. Life is good.

Read on Pop Candy That Mel Gibson is entering rehab. There seems to be quite a bit of controversy on whether he recieved special treatment. This is going to be interesting in the days that come!

Also mentioned is the new trailer for Martin Scorsese's new film "The Departed". It stars Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon and Leonardo DeCaprio.

Later Later!

Ann Hathaway Quotes

When you’re 17 you just want a job, you want to get out there and perform and ‘gotta dance, gotta dance’. As you get older your taste streamlines a bit...with maturity comes self-knowledge.

Just checking out...

some info on Spiderman III. Now even thought Spiderman III is not supposed to be out until next summer, some 5000 fans got a glimpse of the movie over at Comic Con. Director Sam Raimi and key members of the cast (Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and others) where there at the con. Now that must have been one cool time. I cannot wait until Spiderman III comes out. By the way how do you guys like the Spiderman series so far? Give me a line on that. Later!

Well lets see what is going on!

The fight in Lebanon is going on that is for sure! It would seem that Hezbollah is well organized and well equipped. I just hope that a peace settlement will come out of this soon. But who knows when that will happen?

I think it is a horrible shame that things have to come to this but with such enemies going at it like this it is problematic. I am sure a lot of people think that this is horrible. But when you have people bent on each other's destruction. Horrible things are the norm.

In my humble opinion I think the idea of Nato creating a buffer zone in Lebanon may very well work out. But first things first I guess, which is to clear that buffer zone. I do not think that will be an easy task now. But that would seem to be the goal for Israel.

Well hopefully the longer term goal of peace is not lost during this conflict. Because if it is then we may all lose on that proposition.

Famous Quotes (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

All our progress is an unfolding, like a vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason.

Famous Quotes (Cicero)

The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquillity, servitude is the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death.


Roman author, orator, & politician (106 BC - 43 BC)

Israel starting the ground war?

Israel battles Hezbollah, takes village - Yahoo! News

It is mentioned in the above article that Israel did cross over the border with Lebanon carrying  tanks, bulldozers and armored personnel carriers. They captured a village after a long battle with Hezbollah guerilla fighters.

And it could get even worse as tens of thousands Lebanese people try to get away from the fighting. I cannot imagine what that has to feel to like. To be uprooted like that. But then I cannot imagine what it is like to be on both sides on the issue.

The fighting has gone on so long. When will it stop? When will the hatred be brought under control? When will there finally be peace in the Middle East? When will the fighting end? I do not know myself. But it looks like it will be a long time before an everlasting peace is brokered in the Middle East. I just hope that in the meantime something else does not happen to make a already bad situation much worse.

Blog sites in India being blocked

Sorry to read on Blogger Buzz that blogging sites are being blocked in India. It is interesting that in this day and age that there are still places on this Earth where people have to fight for the right to express their selves. I consider myself lucky to live where I live and to be able to speak what is on my mind with out the possibility of some sort of retribution. I hope that this will be resolved in a fashion where people will have the freedom to say what ever comes to mind.

 

Famous Quotes Life Quotes - Ben Stein

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.

 

The Pop Candy home page...

has changed. We no longer have a pic of Whitney Matheson seated but there is a nice drawing of her. A bit of a nice change.

She posted about seeing 15 minutes of Superman II Richard Donner's Director's cut. She thought it was cool. The rest of that post is here.

 

Just cruising the net

and I must say the news from the Middle is rather gloomy to say the least. With Israel massing troops and tanks on the border. That cannot be a good thing for peace lovers. I wish that religous differences could be resolved in a peaceful manner but this has been going on so long one wonders if there will be ever be peace in the Middle East?!

Well the way things have been going you may conclude that it will never happen. I would like to say that at some point peace will be achieved. But it looks like that will be some time on down the road to say the least. I can understand why Israel may move ground troops in so as to create another "buffer zone" though.

I just hope that this will all come to an end soon. Where every one will come out on top. And no else will every have to worry about hearing the sounds of rockets coming to their doorstep again.
