La Jolla, California.

This morning at 5:50 am, full moon over the big pond; peaceful, graceful and calm.
Merry Christmas to my friends wherever they are.

My computer is running much faster now ...

because, I found a good online source for RAM.
I bought a 1G memory from this site (Memory Suppliers Inc.) for half the price of Best Buy or Apple store, and it works like a charm ...
They have a very user friendly site with no Shipment fees or Tax. If you are shopping for memory chips etc, check them out.

And I am glad to support their business... :0)

A taste of my eclectic musical prefrences

I was very pleased to see that my most favorite French singer has this performance.
Singing an eternal song from another one of my favorite Francophone singers. Singing that song, was a triple delight....
I will let you enjoy...

Anacapa Islands

Thanks to a few very kind friends we had an opportunity to take a day trip to Anacapa islands (a chain of three islands) one of Santa Barbra Channel Islands.
It was the nesting season of sea gals and it was interesting to see their chicks hatch in front of us.

A long overdue and much needed trip...

So far this has been the smallest Orchid I have ever seen and yet so intricade and beautiful.

Newport Beach CA

Dec 30, 2006 sunny 75 F
Felt like a day to read a book, sitting on the grass and watching the sailboats pass by.
Strolling along the bluffs, we saw an Iranian grandma sitting on a bench gazing into the ocean. She noticed us, hoping to find something to say, but had none, I saw in her eyes, and she kept on looking. We kept on walking hoping we had something to tell her, but had none…

My backyard does not open to the Pacific. I don't get the morning sun, and I don't have red shingles on my roof.
But I am happy to have flowers on my table all the time ...

Shabeh Yalda

So, one of the most successfully popular, and highly regarded blogers (in my opinion), Shirin invited me to join the “Shebeh Yalda Game” by writing five things about myself that not many people know about.
So here they are in five categories:

1. In regard to Politics… I am not a Nationalist, I am a Globalist who do not agree with, or support nationalism. I believe it leads to radicalism and like all other extreme ideologies, can be destructive to mankind.

2. Health… I hate it that I am an insomniac; I wake up more than 20-30 times during the night; it does take a toll…

3. Jobs… In one of my early collage years when I used to go to school all day and work all nights, one night alone, I had to peal and chop 150 kg of Onions … I hated working for food industry!

4. Childhood… My brother has a naked picture of me from the time I was 4 years old playing on the beach of "Orumieh Salt Lake". He never let me lay my hands on that photo! …I will get yooooou someday!!!

5. Unrealistic dreams… My favorite area and lieu are late 1800s in Paris!

Coral Trees grow well in the central coast of California, they look amazing specially in winter when they are nude, no leave, only dried branches with scattered flam lake flowers. They epitomize passion to me…
