We have eliminated fighter pilot from Calvin's career choices.

We traveled to Newport for our Memorial Day.  We visited the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum where they had a bridge that went through a rotating tunnel.  The tunnel was painted and lit up to look like a starry night.  The tunnel spun quickly and gave an optical illusion that you too were spinning.  Calvin went through and turned around to watch us come after him.  As he stood at the end of the tunnel looking back he began to lean until he got to about a 45 degree angle before realizing he was falling.  I'm not sure what tipped him off; it might have been that he began to feel gravity on one side of his face, or his eye spotted the now perpendicular handrail, or his upright parents; regardless when he reached a 45 degree lean his legs sprung into action.  He launched himself head first into the handrail.  He did cry but it was so funny Karla and I couldn't stop laughing. Tucker was appalled that we would laugh after Calvin incurred yet ANOTHER head injury, but seriously..... if you saw this little brown eyed boy looking up at you and start to slowly lean to to his left before jumping sideways- you'd laugh too.

This kid is a magnet for head injuries.  Of course there was the rock slide where he had a few, but once before that he ran to the front door to greet me home and as I opened the door, BAMM! His skin split open in the middle of his forehead (you can slightly see that scar in the picture below).  This baseball season (btw, Calvin wasn't even in baseball, he was a spectator) he got whacked 3 times in the head with a ball.  Once, he was just walking in the middle of a group of adults and as he walked through some kid threw a ball OVER the dug out and it hit Calvin smack center in the top of his head.  Another time I arrived at one of Tucker's games late and Calvin came running over to give me a hug.  With arms stretched out he gets flattened by a ball to the side of the head.  And look at the unicorn horn he has below.  He said he was jumping on his bed and fell on the corner.  Good thing we have good insurance.

Monster Beats in 2011 does regarding the earphone profession cannot be ordinary one year Monster Headphones , how many years depend upon the first to accumulate the domestic some earphone manufacturer technology tends even more is maturely intense with the traditional international big plant between competition, then actually does have which manufacturers in 2011 year to be able to break through a tight encirclement stands in belongs to under victor's spotlight Monster Beats ?

Let us wait. Large US and Kuwait issued G909, let us see those who is one section shakes these international electricity to compete sufficiently the famous factory product. In the electricity competes in the market G909 by its superelevation performance-to-price ratio, the fine outward appearance design, lets us see the domestically produced brand has broken the foreign brand ridge power failure to compete the earphone market tight encirclement hope Monster Beats Studio .

Perhaps 4000 Yuan prices let the common consumer accept with difficulty, but because Tesla technology's application this section does obeisance Asian power Monster Headphone to be able to let you and thoroughly that wrap Diamond Headphones tedious and expensive table model system, brings simple enjoyment the graceful acoustic fidelity which to T70P, such looked words 4000 also expensive?

"lets music, described this section of cutting edge flagship portable earphone Beats By Dr Dre on the road" with these words again appropriate. The exquisite sounds of people annotation, the correct sound field performance as well as the clear accurate sense of depth, will be a that kind of tin will let you have the startled colorful feeling product, what certainly will be most essential will be you only needs a personal stereo to be able to obtain these to enjoy. Believed that everybody has a not too good impression regarding the domestic manufacturer, that is "lacks the innovative ideology Beats Solo Hd Frequency Response ".
