SEC 0-1

I'm pulling for all the SEC teams this year. It's incredibly hard rooting for Bama and Florida, but I'm willing to take one for the team. Alabama leads off losing to Oklahoma State, but they played a good game considering they don't even have a coach.

I love Christmas Break

One of the things I love most about Christmas break is getting to spend extra time with my hoodlums. One of the things we love to do is watch movies together. A couple of nights ago Hannah, who is home from Carson Newman, and I watched Little Mermaid. Quent and I always dig some Monty Python. He's watching all three Lord of the Rings movies tonight with friend Ben. I would be jealous that I'm not there if I were not enjoying watching Mary Poppins with Clara Grace. I love hanging with my hoodlums!

Log and a Stump

Flipping around the TV today it seemed like all anyone was talking about was the war between Rosie and the Donald. To me this is like a stump and a log arguing about who is more hollow. A war in Iraq, genocide in Sudan, Korea and Iran doing their best to split the atom, and we are focusing on these two lumps? Shallow? You put the depth of these two together and you don't get enough to fill a child's inflatable pool. They are the marshmallows of humanity, and its time we put them in the back of the cabinet and let them go stale.

Not so much good will toward men

Yesterday, Michael Silence posted reaction to Gov. Bredesen's Christmas card. You would have thought the man had shot the Pope. We Christians amaze me some times. Jesus was asked about his "target audience" once and this was his reply - "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: "I desire mercy, not sacrifice." For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." Matthew 9:12-13 Who would Jesus have on His Christmas card?

Dead Frank Walking

Brother Frank has been known to proudly display the ole bonehead from time to time, but this goes way beyond "What the hell was he thinking?!" Frank not only taunted and mocked his beloved, and soon to be sainted wife Lisa, but he was stupid enough to send me photographic evidenced! Duh! He tries to hide behind his oldest daughter Lauren, and even entitles his email "Loren and I get revenge".
Every night she falls asleep at 10pm in her chair... Every night she claims that we leave her there when she comes to bed at 1:00am... Every night she swears that we would have awaken her if we had tried... Tonight. We proved that there is no moving... THE ZOMBIE MOM!!!!"
You know when the the dookey hits the fan Loren will turn on him like month old milk. "Mom, it was horrible. Dad made me do it even after I begged him not to. Please take me to the therapist, mom, else I don't know how I will cope with the pain."

I loved my brother Frank, may he rest in peace.

You don't know #%#$^&*!!

Quantum Physics was born today. On this day in 1900 Max Planck would help the world come to terms with the phrase "What the ....?!"

Thanks to my friend Andrew, I recently saw a really cool movie What the bleep do we know!? Down the Rabbit Hole. It deals with the mystic area where physics and science meets God and spirituality. It's a fantastic movie if you want to wade through an infinitely deep pool. Also Leonard Sweet is a theologian, Methodist of course, who's paddled these waters himself a time or two.
