Sunrise in the States

I took this pictures with my cell phone, sitting in my car in the grocery store parking lot early one morning our first day back in the States. So beautiful.

Weird Things You Do When You Go Home

I think all of us get a bit giddy going into a Western grocery store when we make our trips back to the Western world. I'm assuming I'm not alone?? I think three trips in a row my first stop has been Whole Foods after getting off the plans and getting a night's sleep.

Well I made a quick trip to Giant Eagle for some snacks and such for the kids and couldn't help myself when I saw these "2015 flavors" from Lay's. First, I love potato chips, second, I felt like I'd been missing out. 

We had a little tasting party at the house to try these flavors. Truffle fries won the contest hands down. We did like the gyro flavor too much and biscuits and gravy while OK didn't excite us.

Caution With Style - pictures in Beijing

I was driving the other day and saw this in the middle of an intersection, the picture is zoomed in so you can't see it is an intersection. Bless the people that put these branches in the open manhole (there are actually two open manholes).

 I think this is the best, makes it look like there is a tree growing out of the road.

Hanging high - dangerous jobs in China

This guy gave me quite a fright as I drove home a couple days ago, wasn't expecting him working above our heads. Not sure exactly what he was doing but I prayed that he didn't fall in this country full of safety snafus. 

See the wire to his left and the shape it is making?? He obviously drew the short end of the sticks.
