In General Back in Houston Entry Tools Rate This Entry

After a three week journey to the Baja Peninsula, I am back in Houston, back at the dojo, and just about back in shape.

The journey was amazing, and I met some amazing people.

I met an 84 year old man that built his own 400 passenger ship, with his own hands and a few assitants. He told me about his adventure in Hollywood and how he made 184 movies in the span of 8 years and all the wonderful actors and actresses he met. This guy had more energy than two of me put together. He took my dad in a ride in his helicopter to an organic farm that he built himself. I can't even begin to express how amazed I was with the amount of things he is doing at the age of 84.

I visited the famous "Hotel California" where the Eagles stayed and wrote the famous song, "Hotel California."

I met a guy that was given most of the land in Los Cabos, I think I need to repeat that, he was given the land in a lottery. Now here it get's interesting...He lost the lottery and got the land on the beach! You see, back then the land on the beach was worth absolutely nothing! The land on the other side of the highway was the land that was worth something because you could put your cows on it.

Well, that was decades ago, he held on to that land and now he's the one with a lear jet, a super yatch and a lifestyle that we only dream about.

I got to dine in the most incredible restuarants, with the most incredible views.

Maybe, in 14 years, I'll retire to Cabo. It's like a dream over there.

Not to mention I've got a store over there selling beautiful Mineral Specimens.
