The desire to excel. The passion to dedicate. The determination to see it through.

Went to AMK Library with Sandra today. We met Clara there. She recognized us by my AJ trackpants! Ate at Mos Burger today. I tried Sandra's clam chowder but we concluded that Long John's chowder tastes better. It has a milder shellfish taste. I ate the burger in which there were no bread buns. Instead, juicy lettuce replaced it, wrapping around the teriyaki chicken. In my opinion, it isn't worth $3.20 even though it makes you feel healthy.

I went home to eat dinner again. This was my second round of dinner as I wasn't full from my meal at Mos Burger. Dinner led into a 2 hour long discussion of issues with my father. I realized that he is very knowledgeable and recalls much of the information taught to him even at secondary school! He is 60+ years old mind you! He sure knows his Geography!
We discussed these issues:
  • Geography (Maps, countries, volcanoes, clouds, etc!)
  • The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (Christianity, his purpose of writing the book, how skilled he was at crafting a controversy which led to his Best Seller)
  • Archaeology (Especially the pyramids of Egypt)
  • Atlantis
  • UFOs
  • The cycle of civilization
  • The Japanese Occupation
  • The Holocaust
  • My grandfather and great grandfather (Occupations, wealth, way of life, etc!)

These discussions at dinner are turning into a habit! Very enriching. Really!!!
