She says that she is reformed

So Paris Hilton is out of jail and says that she has changed her ways. Yet she has said that before and has shown that she just will not learn her lesson. What wiil it take? Will possibly taking some one else's life finally drive that lesson home?
More than likely, we will see Paris Hilton's name in the news again within the next few weeks. She has proven unrepentant and has given a judge a slap in the face. Any other person would not have gotten as much press coverage as she got through this ordeal that she has subjected the American public to.
The first thing that should be taken from her is her access to her family's money. That way she would have to work for a living just like the rest of us. Next, bar her from the media coverage she has become accostumed to. We will see how quickly her star fades from the public eye. Not that she has any real talent anyway. Here is the interview where she describes her stay as traumatic. Is that not what jail is supposed to be?

Summertime in Grand Haven

Just a few days ago, I decided to take a bikeride to Grand Haven, Michigan, which happens to be a town twenty miles north of my hometown.

Along the way there is Kirk Park, which happens to be one of the county parks. One of the spots to visit at Kirk is the gravesite of the son of one of the original homesteaders of this area.

The Michigan shoreline is considered to be one of the best vacation spots in the U.S., the main reason for this happens to be the many dunes that line the area beaches. These dunes are very fragile and are considered to be environmentally important to this area.

Here are a few photos of the Grand Haven Pier Lighthouse. This is really a site to see If you happen to se it at night.

This picture is of the old Grand Haven Life Saving Station. This is the building that housed the Coast Guard in Grand Haven before the current station was built. It has since then been made into someone's home.

This picture is of Washington Street, the main street of the Grand Haven business district. It is also a popular spot for people to hang out during the summer and on weekends.

Memorial Day with the family

I know that this is late, but I did get to spend Memorial Day with my family. The best part of the day was getting to play with my nephew, who had just turned the big three years old the wek before. We had fun watching him playing in the sprinklers.

Summer is finally here

Summer is finally here and here I have some pictures that I thought I would make some great additions to the blog. These are some photos that I took from Holland State Park of the Holland Harbor Pier Light House. Around here, it is commonly called Big Red.

I have added some other photos of the North and South piers at the entrance to Holland Harbor. These are favorite destinations for those looking great places to watch boats going by and for fishing.

These were taken from Tunnel Park, which is a few miles north of Holland State Park. This is a wonderful place to watch sunsets from in the spring and fall.

She gets to see how the other side lives

I saw in the news today the jail cell that Paris Hilton will be living in for the next few days. Out of all the many people who have gone to prison for similar offenses, Paris Hilton is the only one who is getting her name in the news. The only reason that she is in the news at all is because she has money and is an heiress. Other than having money to burn, she has no talent whatsoever. I wonder whether her cell mates will be the ones to finally put that rich girl in her place.
People like Paris Hilton always seem to forget where their parents and grandparents money came from. Their money came the common people that some of these people have publically despised so much. Her cell mates will remind her of that. Having money does not give one talent.
