We need to drill today for the future...

This past week I've been hearing on the radio that most hard core politicians are against the drilling just outside our shores. With gas prices hovering around the $4 mark most Americans can't keep the status quo when it comes to living a life that was once normal and enjoyable. I have taken some serious changes in how I drive and how I spend my money knowing that help is far from coming. With president Bush saying that he'll remove any barriers that he may have up if Congress is willing to lift the ban on offshore drilling. The image you see at the top left will illustrate where it's okay to drill and where some drilling is already going on. Obama made it clear that this will not help us right away, he is correct on that point but my two questions for Obama are -
What does he plan on doing to lower the cost of gas?
Why shouldn't we drill now, it would benefit our children in the future when it comes to world survival.
I am okay with offshore drilling especially if it can release us from depending on foreign oil. We as Americans are being kept on our knees and it looks like the Democratic Congress is just fine with that.


Is it football season yet?

Yes I am going through football withdrawals. I know that the 49ers aren't going to make any spectacular moves this upcoming season but I can hope. I have found a site where I can join in on conversations regarding football and the many teams. Were your football picks last season great, good or really bad. Either way visit the link and see how many other people are just like me or better yet - like you.
After watching last night's game three between the final two teams Boston and LA I felt like Boston was not executing properly their complete attack for the win. Garnett and Pierce need to get their game going early on and keep it pumped throughout the night. They were both struggling and were only able to bring in 19 points total. Well let's see what game four will bring.

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant's 36 points, climbed back into the NBA Finals series with an 87-81 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 Tuesday.

The Lakers, 9-0 at home in the post-season, avoided falling into an 0-3 series hole. Game 4 will be Thursday in Los Angeles.

Sasha Vujacic came off the bench to score 20 for the Lakers, while Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom scored just four and nine points, respectively.

Boston was led by Ray Allen's 25 points. Allen hit five of seven three-point attempts. Kevin Garnett managed just 13 points -- missing 15 of his 21 shots from the field -- and 12 rebounds. Paul Pierce was even worse, missing 12 of 14 shots and finishing with just six points.

The Celtics have lost six of eight road games in the post-season.

NBA: LA Lakers 87, Boston 81

BOSTON - J.D. Drew produced both runs Sunday in the Boston Red Sox' 2-1 decision over the Seattle Mariners.

His solo homer broke a 1-1 tie with no outs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The veteran right-fielder pushed the other run across the plate when he was hit by pitch from Seattle starting pitcher Erik Bedard with the bases loaded and two outs in the third.

Five players had one hit for the Red Sox, who have won five of their last six games overall and 15 of their last 16 at Fenway Park.

Winner Justin Masterson (3-0) gave up an earned run and just three hits in six innings. Closer Jonathan Papelbon recorded his 18th save this season.

Seattle's run scored on a fielder's choice groundout by Yuniesky Betancourt in the top of the second.

The Mariners managed five hits in the sixth loss in their last seven games.

The losing pitcher was reliever Sean Green (1-2).

Boston's Manny Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 13 games.


I need one today...

Before the summer season ends my wife and I plan on visiting the "Garden of the Gods" while on route to visit my oldest daughter in California. A new Binocular would come in handy especially if I want a closer look at the naturally made sculptures. With the shipping cost being free for orders over $29.95 I can't resist the temptation to buy not only one pair but possibly buying a second. Check them out today and see what "catches" your eye.

Let the Finals begin...

BOSTON - The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, who make up the most tradition-bound rivalry pro basketball, open the NBA Finals Thursday.

It will be the 11th time the franchises have met for the league championship, with the Celtics having claimed eight of the previous 10 confrontations.

Boston dominated the rivalry when Bill Russell was the symbol of the team and the Lakers won the last two meetings with the tandem of Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Now it will be the Boston trio of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce attempting to get the best of Los Angeles superstar Kobe Bryant.

Bryant has hit 50 percent of his shots and averaged 32 points a game in 13 playoff contests this season.

The Celtics, meanwhile, have played only one post-season game under the maximum. They were extended to seven games by both Atlanta and Cleveland before closing out Detroit in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Boston won both regular-season meetings this season and will be at home for the first two games of the Championship Series. All games in the finals are scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET.
I can't wait to watch game one, I want to see which team will try to gain the lead early in the game. Who knows maybe my uncle can add the Celtics to his list of favorite teams right next to the Red Sox.


Finding my spot...

When ever I'm in the mood I try to throw in some classic rap music but with my wife and kids not liking my choice in music I usually find myself in my man cave listening for hours. I recently visited Busta Rhymes Biography and I learned a few things about him that I did not know like him being part of the group "Tribe called Quest". With that knowledge I'm going to see if I can get all of Busta Rhymes Lyrics and see what his style was early on into the business.

Are you a "Nervous Wreck"?

MADISON, Wis. - U.S. scientists announced the discovery of a gene they call "nervous wreck" that is essential to the proper development of nerve cells in the fruit fly.

The gene governs the size of a synapse -- the junction between nerve cell endings. University of Wisconsin scientists said the gene prevents synapses from overgrowing by damping the effects of a pro-growth signal. Mutations in a human version of the "nervous wreck" gene have been linked to a severe genetic developmental disability

The 100 billion nerve cells in the human make trillions of synaptic connections to neurons, muscle cells and other cell types. Malfunctions at synapses are believed to be among the many factors leading to various neurological disorders.

Kate O'Connor-Giles, a postdoctoral fellow who led the study, said, "We really need to have a deep understanding of how all the factors involved are working together to develop rational treatments for neurological disorders associated with aberrant synaptic growth."

The researchers say their findings might speed the development of treatments for neurological disorders.

The study appears in the journal Neuron.
After reading the article above I have learned that the many friends in my past may have had this infamous gene. Heck half of the baseball team might of been affected by this. Go figure.
