'Tis the season...

Well, here we are again. Ready to enter the 'stew' called the Holiday Season that starts today? Lots has happened in the last year in our little slice of the world, as I'm sure it has in yours. Let's see:

My family's had a wedding, a birth (with one more on the way in January), some minor and not-so-minor illnesses, pending surgery for one of ours, and, thankfully, we still have everyone with us that we did this time last year. We have been blessed...

Allison and Brian just celebrated their one-year anniversary on 10-20-08...

but she NEVER POSTS ANYMORE!...Ahh-but I remember how wonderful those early years were while building a life together...

Knot was outed by his Dentite and had to re-boot his site...

Radhole is now RadRuss so that they don't consider him a porn site anymore...

Eldon's wife isn't doing too great-and-
According to the latest update Sandy is having a tough fight too-
Please remember them in your prayers...

This time last year LFOAB and family had just relocated from New York to Minneapolis and were settling in for a mid-west winter but this past Saturday they just finished a move to Portland Oregon. Coast to coast in a year...talk about culture shock...

It was through LFOAB this past year that I met Brother Yam and have been enjoying reading him ever since...

Jeremy had a change of career this past year and, despite his promises to the contrary, he still makes me think...

This past year Laura and K welcomed their first little one...

On a more worldly note next Tuesday is a pretty important day in the life of our country. Since I early voted I'll spare you my arguments for or against anyone. Just suffice it to say that I truly don't see government as the answer to any of our problems...the cause of our problems is more like it. And there are plenty on BOTH SIDES so I'm not interested in any party-line rhetoric. We have to take some responsibility for the government screwing things up since we put the people there and get rid of the guilty. But it doesn't seem to me that either Republican or Democrat has the 'nads or smarts to fix things so it's not an easy answer.

So, lets arm ourselves and stand ready...

Watch out for trouble and keep our heads down...

Stay focused...

and maybe the jolly man in the Red and White suit will have something nice for us come Christmas time...

...or not. Either way I've had a blast this past year and I'm looking forward to to making it through the next one with a little help from my friends...

Merry ThanksGivOWeen everyone!!!

How I Spent 5 Years Of My Life

Here's a FANTASTIC video from @ 2000 that I played for the new hire classes I used to teach for 3 of the (at the time) major Internet service providers that my company contracted to do support for. This was Day 1 Stuff. We always had fun with this one...if you've ever done phone support you'll realize this is way more true than some want to admit. Have fun:

Best One Ever

I love "Whose Line Is It Anyway". Whenever it's been a rough day I can tune in to one of their shows and before long I'm laughing so hard I've forgotten what was bothering me.

Here's one of their funiest routines ever...
