Wow.. It has been a long time

It has been a long time since I have posted. A lot of things have happened since last January. I went to Ukraine, and going back again this May. Got a year older. Got an IPod. Discovered a new website: I do some blogging there. I like to read some blogs but I don't always know what to write. I don't want to write about work since I don't want to get fired and I am not sure what else to write about so I don't.

I redesigned new website for World Hope Ukraine. I think I did a decent job.

My Brother has started a blog.

enough rambling.

Hockey Game

I went to see the Greenville Grrrowl Friday night. It was church night so it was pretty packed. The Grrrowl are trying to make more money so all the cheap seats are blocked off. I was pretty bummed about that. It was a good game. Greenville won 6-0. There was also 3 fights. Pretty funny considering the crowd was cheering and it was church night.

After the game there was a mini concert from Audio Adrenaline. It was pretty good. It was pretty laid back. They pulled in a portable stage and set the concert right up on the ice. We also found out that they are recording their last album. 15 years of rock and roll and screaming has pretty much killed the lead singer's voice. It was my second time to see them.

Next concert, Winterjam. Newsboys, TobyMac, and hosted by Newsong. It should be pretty good. The concert is only $10. Last year they had to put people back stage, because there was so many.

Misc. Stuff
Football - Pittsburgh won, Carolina got blown out.
Superbowl = Pittsburgh vs. Seattle

Holiday Wars by John Fischer

I was thinking about writing about this very topic , but I can't say it as well as John Fischer did. I take absolutely no credit for this posting. This is from the December 22, 2005.

Click the link to read what he said. I agree absolutely with John.

Christmas Program

Dec. 11 my daughter was in her first Christmas program. Thank goodness that her dress stayed down. She never pulled her dress over her head like you see in some programs. One down and few more to go.

I have attached a picture below.

Power... Finally

Well, we finally got power last night at 7:40. That means we were without power 84 hours. The good news is that I cleaned the freezer last night. The bad news is I had to throw out about 5 pounds of shrimp. We spent about 2 hours cleaning the house and trying to get back to some sort of normalcy. I still have a co-worker without power and he said he heard it was going to be Wednesday before he had power.

Thank-you Duke Power for working very hard !!

What a week

What a week this has been. First the movie "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, The Wardrobe" came out last Friday. I wasn't able to watch it until Monday night but it was worth it. I went Sunday afternoon to the theater but it was sold out.
Sunday morning was Bethany's (my daughter) first christmas program. It was cute. But the story of the week is the "Ice Storm".
We had a nasty Ice storm hit us on Wednesday night. We lost power Thursday morning around 8:00 am. We live near a university and if I lose power they usually lose power which means I get my power back on quickly. Well not this time!! The powerline was damaged between us and the university. According to the power company it will be Tuesday before we have power. Ouch !!! Nice and cold. This morning I put about 2 inches of cold water in the bath tub and setup my turkey frier. I filled it full of water and boiled it and then brought the water into the tub so I had a warm bath. It wasn't to bad. Currently it is about 50 degrees in the house. Thankfully my mother-in-law has power so I took the baby to her house so she can at least be warm. I guess we will be finding some place to live for the next couple of days. Oh well. I am not the only person in this boat so I guess we will all suffer together.

Some people are like Slinkies. Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there? I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its bottom."

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?
