My Dream House...

I have found my dream house.....to bad I can not even come close to affording it unless I hit the lotto or get some freaking big ass raise (and I mean BIG).

Here is another site for the house incase the first one does not work: http://www.fsbonm.com/southwest_mls_listing.asp?mls_no=480931

This house has been restored so well from what it was at one time its not even funny. This house is an Sears Mail Order House that Candido Gonzales, a Corrales local, built his new house soon after the big 1904 flood. He ordered the windows, doors, cabinets, woodwork and light fixtures from Sears Roebuck.

Over time this house was to be lots of thing, but I am glad to see that who ever is selling it has done such a great job restoring it. If anyone would like to buy this house for me, I would really love it. LOL.

Colliding With Death at 37,000 Feet, and Living...

I was looking at the online edition of The New York Times tonight when one article caught my eye. The headline said, "Colliding With Death at 37,000 Feet, and Living" and the tagline for the article was "In a corporate jet flying 37,000 feet above the Amazon rainforest, I heard the three words I will never forget: 'We’ve been hit.'"

Reading this article I could not help but be amazed if not shocked. How do you survive a mid-air plane crash? How do you survive being the smaller plane? Amazed. That is all I can say. We hear so much about plane crashes and the people who lost there life, but so rarely do we hear the other side.

As I sit here watching "The Tonight Show", I wonder how would I react? What would be going thru my head? Would I stay calm and collected, or would I be loosing my mind?. I hope I never have to find out as these 7 people did. What I can say is that despite all the odds, they beat them.
