Confused languages

I have an update on the X-box 360 give away in the VBS situation. I spoke with the Children’s pastor by phone today. First I thanked him for the hard work of all the VBS staff and the blessing it was to my sons (and it was). And I just asked him what the motivation for […]

Biff! Bam! Pow!

Last night I watched Stan Lee’s So You Want To Be a Superhero?. Pretty campy stuff. These guys would fit in well with the Mystery Men. But hey…I LOVE the Mystery Men. And being do-gooder, superhero-fan-guy that I am…I liked it. I don’t usually like Reality TV…but this one’s very interesting. Very creative. Some high […]

I don't like yard work

I just have to go on record to say that I hate yard work. It’s not so much the hard work aspect of it. That’s not a big deal. But just that I have to get up so bloody early to beat the triple digit heat. No sleeping in for yours truly. But I’m hoping […]
