I hope everyone is having a great holiday season as 2008 winds now. I'm out in Vancouver now visiting Kelly's family and we will be having a “white Christmas” this year! Vancouver just got dumped an unprecedented amount of snow! I think it's the biggest snow storm in over 37 years and the city has basically shut down. I love the snow… and the cold… it brings back memories of growing up in NYC and playing in the snow.
Since my last blog, I've been to a few cool places. Here is another picture of my weekend in Monterey, California. I love how beautiful it is there.
We were up in the Bay Area like 2 times in 2 weeks. After Monterey, we went back to see my family for Thanksgiving. The highlight was to see my nephew Jacob again!
2 weekends ago, Kelly and I also went to our first dog show! We love dogs so it was REALLY REALLY cool to be able to go to the Eukanuba Dog Show in Long Beach. They had tons of dogs there. We went there mainly to check out Kelly's wishlist dog, the Bichon Frise. We also wanted to talk to different breeders to make sure we get our puppy from a good breeder. We learned tons there. It was very very cool. I would highly recommend any dog lover to go! You see tons of different breeds and you learn so much!
Been reading a lot. I have learned how to read faster and this has helped me go through books faster. Here are list of books that I have read in the past month:
I have been re-reading the Rich Dad books. I first read them back in 2001 – 2003 and it's cool to see how much I have grown. What I learn from them now is totally different and new from when I first read them. the books are awesome and even in my second reading, I am learning a lot.
I also highly recommend Marley & Me by John Grogan . I wanted to read the book before the movie came out cause we all know that books are always 100 times better than the movie! (for i.e. Godfather, Lord of the Rings, Dune, etc). How can a movie in 2 hours tell a story that took over hundreds of pages?! The book is awesome and it got me crying. Very very good read! It's very touching and has a good lesson behind it.
Happy Holidays and I will write again in a week as we get ready for 2009!
