American Idol

This year will be the 7th season, it’s still my favorite show because you never know you might see some good singer good enough to be a star, and the bad ones could give me nightmare. The comments and impressions of the judges are so funny. Simon is a jerk, Paula always the kindest, and Randy’s neutral. The most sucessful American Idol----Chris Daughtry :

State of the Union Address

I watched State of the Union last night, beautiful performance. As an American, all I want is having a safe and stable country to live in. No matter who become the next President, as long as can keep the same situation like today. That’s a successful President.

Raining cats and dogs

It was in downpour all day yesterday, I had to stay home, using a computer with no Chinese operating system, all the characters turn into squares, can only read English, hubby was busy, did not fix that toasted computer, sorry !

Friday, January 25, 2008


We have fixed the modem now,thanks hubby, but the computer with Chinese o/s in it still toasted. I can only read English text in another computer but can not upload picture, we will change the power supply of that computer today. Hopefully, my husband will help me again.

I won't be able to use computer at home for a while, therefore I have to go to the library using their computer with no Chinese input. Thank you for your patience !

Made in USA

This is my daughter’s old tricycle , the company of this brand is facing competition with China. Most of the US produces are having the same problem, because the cost of manufacturing is higher than abroad, it’s sad to see US workers losing their jobs.

The day before storm

This picture was taken one day before the Bay Area storm. You can see the color of the cloud is unusual, but nobody would know that we were going to have power failure too. After 9 hours being without power, we were glad that PGandE come to our block and fixed it. Thanks.

Saturday, January 5, 2008


My younger daughter wants to imitate me by putting on the sunglasses. PS. It’s stormy day, the power went off for 9 hours.

One time when we shopped at a department store, my daughter got to see the toys while I was looking at the clothes, suddenly there was a child crying, I found out that was a Mexican little girl did not want to play with my daughter and ran to find her Spanish speaking mother. And my daughter was disappointed, I still remember the look on her face.

Dim sum place

Dim sum is my daughters’ favorite food. The price is reasonable, three pieces for $1.5 . It was because they like meat, I ordered steam meat balls for them.
