I’ve got no other words than these: this person’s vote counts the same as yours.  That is all.

Rachel’s first 5K!

September 29, 2008

This is a week late, but Rachel ran in the McGregor Founder’s Day 5K and ran a 25:16.  She got 2nd in the 13-and-under age group.  Her time would’ve won the 14-18 or 19-29 age groups!  It was her first time to run a 5K and she did great!

Andrew had a really good game!

September 27, 2008

We played our first regular season pee wee football game this morning in Troy.  Our first two games were “practice” games and didn’t count on our record.  In this morning’s game Andrew returned two punts–each for about 40 yards.  He scored on the second one as you can see in the video below:

They had never even practiced fielding punts–none of the other teams punt the ball as far as we know.  Since Andrew was playing safety I think that’s why he lucked into returning the punts.  He fielded them both cleanly and knew what to do with it once he got it!

On defense he was playing safety and stepped in front of a pass, picked it off, and ran it back for ANOTHER touchdown.  He was pretty fired up.  He also made several really good tackles on special teams. Unfortunately, I did not catch the INT on tape.  We won the game handily and Andrew was named the MVP.

The REAL maverick

I doubt many of you will want to devote 10 minutes to watching this interview from yesterday, but this is why I supported Dr. Paul.  Want to talk “maverick”?  It’s THIS guy, not the one who got the nomination.

OK everyone.  Read the following article from 4 years ago and ponder it in light of today’s financial crises.  Go ahead.  I’ll wait.


This quote (from Osama Bin Laden himself) sums up the point of the article: “We [al Qaeda] are continuing this policy in bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy.”

Regardless of your politics, it really makes you stop and think.

I just discovered yearbookyourself.com and it is so cool.  Basically, you upload a photo and then you can scroll through decaded to see how you might have looked.  Here are some of the better ones of me.  Hover your mouse over the photo to see the year, click on it to see a larger version.
