Three's Company

Post contributed by Alfredo Gaines

I love to watch Three's Company on the satellite tv I got at The characters are hilarious and there is never a dull moment. Jack is a chef and is about as funny as they come. He is always cracking wise jokes and trying to get into the girls bedroom. Janet always tries to be the serious one, but every now and then she can be funny too. Krissy is such a dingy character. She is super dense and can always make me laugh.

Then there is Mr and Mrs Roper. Oh, Mr. Roper. He is always thinking that Jack is gay. He can't stand Larry and Jack. Larry is Jack's best friend. Mr. Roper is a cold man that is mean to everyone, even Mrs. Roper. They all hang out at the Regal Begal and just have fun. This is one of the greatest sitcoms of all times as far as I am concerned. I can watch rerun after rerun. This is a show that never gets old even if you have seen each episode a thousand times.

A Jaunt Through the City of Light

The following is a guest post from our friend, Greg Fletcher.

When I was a college student, it seemed like I either spent my time doing homework, going out, or staying home and watching the channels we got after our satellite dish installation. Finally one day I decided I was tired of watching travel channels, and I decided to do some traveling myself. So where did I go? Paris, France. It's where my family is originally from before they immigrated here in the 40's.

I took a 9 hour flight from Chicago to Paris, and then a taxi to a hostel. When I finally got caught up on some rest I took a map, a small French translation book, and some Euros and I went exploring. The first place I went was the Champ de Mars. There I got to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower and see all of Paris from up high. After that I went to a small cafe called Cafe Constant and had some tea and French pastries.
Before I left I asked my waiter where to go next. He told me that the Place Charles de Gaulle was the place to go. There I would get to see the Arc de Triomphe and experience the old world charm that Paris has to offer. I spent the rest of my trip going to many places, but those are the ones I'll remember most.

Ship Creek Fishing

This guest post is from our friend, Delbert Fowler

One of the absolute best things about living in the state of Alaska is the fact that there is no possible way to fish in all the spots that it has to offer. I have spent weeks upon weeks fishing in places, and have yet to touch the majority of the lakes or rivers here. One of the best places to fish is Ship Creek. This creek is famous in Alaska for the salmon that is spawns.

Being able to set my Adt alarm systems and head out for the entire day is a benefit that I have only recently discovered. Instead of wondering if someone is breaking into my house, I am focusing on the beauty of the river, and the fish therein. I have caught a great deal of fish in this river and am proud of it. I have been fishing for most of my life, and greatly enjoy it.

The great thing about fishing is the tranquility and relaxation that it can give me. I love nothing more then to take my boat out on a nice sunny day and fish up a storm, knowing that I can actually eat the fish I catch, as well as present them to people as gifts. My friends and family are always thankful for the hard work that I put into my fishing skills.

Going to the Movies With Peace of Mind

Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays

Once my home security alarm system is set I am able to go on vacation or more often do what my wife and I love to do; go to old movies. We love the old actors such as Errol Flynn , Edward G. Robinson and Steve McQueen. There are movie houses which specialize in these types of classics and we make it a weekly event to catch one of the films.

The acting in the older films cannot be compared to the acting nowadays. The black and white films also give the flavor of the time and the camera work is superior. The acting was better back then than now in our opinion. We look forward to our next film every week. Some classics like The Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen we have seen more than once.

Going to the Movies is a relaxing couple of hours. It takes one's mind off the many problems in the world. It is a pleasure to hear no news for a couple of hours. The world will still be spinning when we come out of the movie and if not, there is nothing we could have done to prevent the world's destruction.
