These photos were taken at Harper Avenue, Michigan last month of August 2008, I had a chance to watch and take pictures of the Harper Cruise with my whole family. It was a great experience.


This morning, I was reading the Detroit free press newspaper while having a cup of coffee with biscuits. In the Life section, I saw the photo of Jay Leno, one of the famous american stand-up comedians and television hosts. He is known as an avid student, collector and restorer of cars and motorcycles. He has a large antique car and motorcycle collection of various international marques. By the way, he is the host of NBC's "The Tonight Show". Then I read an article about him. I was stunned at that moment because his collection was huge and amazing. I idolized him for maintaining the American classic cars and motorcycles until this time. All I can say is, he is cool! Well, if you have money like him, it's not impossible to fulfill your fascination in certain things that you really like. So I checked his garage website, I looked at it and read the full details of each vehicle. They were well maintained and kind of fancy. It's like he has all the brand name. It's awesome! Believe me, you're going to love it especially the car enthusiast. Check it out and see for yourself his massive collection.

I asked my hubby to get the Christmas tree in our basement so I can start decorating it. It's kind of late to do it but believe me it's still early here. Usually, they put it after November 25 which is the Thanksgiving holiday. It's a little bit odd for me. I can't feel the spirit of Christmas yet. But it's part of embracing the lifestyle here in America. In due time for sure I'll get use to it. In my homeland, when the month of September comes that's the time we go crazy decorating our house. We go out and shop for Christmas stuff. You will hear the Christmas songs all over. Definitely, you will feel the spirit of Christmas. It's fantastic! So, I want to share our christmas tree. It's still incomplete, were still looking for an angel stuff to put on the top of it. Hope you like it. It's not that fancy but still fabulous. My little princess always want to be included in the picture so I have no choice.

I just want to share this poem to all of you. It's about learning how to let go of someone close to your heart. I know having this kind of situation is very tough to handle perhaps this poem could help you realize the reality of moving on. I want to keep and save this poem so I can still reread this anytime I want. I've been in this situation before, sometimes it broke my heart, but in the end of the day everything turned well. This is a good and inspiring poem, you can grab and copy this and share to your friends.

To let go doesn't mean to stop caring,
It means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself,
It's a realization that I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable,
But to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another
I can only change myself.
To let go is not to care for,
But to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
But to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
But to allow others to effect their own outcomes.
To let go is not to be protective,
It is a permit to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
But to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
But to search out my own shortcomings
And to correct them.
To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone,
But to try to become the dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
But to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less and love more.
By: Father Robert Gehring
