Here I was grinding a spot to paint, it kinda took me by suprise to see my wife at school... what a kidder!
This one I was looking for supplies...See helped too, but she would let me take her picture...like that's fair.
This one I was actually taking a welding test, passed w/ a B+. I wasn't wearing a safty vest.
I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work
leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't
gone more than a few hundred yards down the road when my engine conked
out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.
When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was parading in front
of the wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and high-heel shoes,
and he was wearing my make up.
I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years.
When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed in my
lingerie because he couldn't find his own underwear. But when I asked
him about the make up, he broke down and admitted that he'd been
wearing my clothes for six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him.
He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been
feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much,
but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly
distant. I don't feel I can get through to him anymore. Can you please help?

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused
by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there
is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee
clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of
these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump
itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor
float chamber. I hope this helps.
1. Post these rules before you give you the facts.
2. List eight (8) random facts about yourself.
3. At the end of your post, choose (tag) eight people and list their names (linking to them).
4. Leave them a comment on their blog letting them know they’ve been tagged!
Here we go....
#1 - My birth mark is on my left foot, on the inside of my second toe.
(the one next to my BIG toe)
#2 - I almost crashed my mom's '67 Mustang when I was 16 years old. I took a turn too fast, crossed the lane of on coming traffic, over-corrected, jumped back accross both lanes and spun out on the right hand shoulder of the road against a telephone access box. Only putting a scratch right above the right-rear fender. Scared the pee out of my buddy riding along.
#3 - I'm right handed.
#4 - I have a gray spot of hair on the right side of my head about the size of a dime.
#5 - I graduated from Boulder City High School. Yes Blue & Gold are school colors.
#6 - I have a scar under my chin from my 1 and only drunk night....any one else?
#7 - I broke my right arm falling from a trampoline.
#8 - I saw President Bush, live & in person......from about 300 yards away.

Yesterday, My wife took my kids and met some friends at a public pool. In all the excitement she forgot the camera on the picnic table. Later in the day I called the pool and was told that it was turned in and that I could pick it at the office the next day.
On my lunch our I ran over to the pool and picked the camera up, safe and sound!! Looking through the memory card I found this picture of, who I could only believe, to be the honest guys who found the camera. OR, where they the hot guys that my wife and her friends were talking about when they left the pool?
Either way, I'm glad that I was able to retrieve my camera.....and all the other important pictures!!
In my search for more to eat(read) I found an awesome daily devotions http://www.christianitytoday.com/men/features/2007/jul22.html . Just in the first 2 readings I have been charged to do more, convicted if you will. Here is Mondays reading.......
Flight PlanTheme of the Week: Defining ChoicesMonday, July 23
Key Bible Verse: "Be just and fair to all," says the Lord. "Do what is right and good, for I am coming soon to rescue you. Blessed are those who are careful to do this" (Isaiah 56:1-2).
Bonus Reading: Psalm 25:1-5, 21
My tires screeched rounding a corner at the airport parking garage. Debbie and I were running late. I spotted an open parking space. Backing up to squeeze in, I forgot about the trailer hitch we'd just installed. It hit the car behind me. I jumped out to inspect a slightly damaged bumper.
What to do? The right thing was to leave a note—but taking the time to do so would make us miss our flight. Besides, the car was old, with dents and scratches. The damaged plastic probably would have no effect on the car's owner, I told myself; but missing our flight would have a big effect on us. "We've got to get to that plane!" I announced, and headed for the terminal.
But I hadn't gotten very far when a voice called inside me. "Is catching a plane so important," it asked, "that it's worth forfeiting God's favor?" I stopped in my tracks, turned to Debbie, and said, "I'm sorry, Honey. I just have to leave a note."
"I know," she replied without a hint of misgiving. So I wrote a note with my phone number, and left it on the damaged car.
We did miss our flight, but lined up a later one and enjoyed a leisurely lunch.

My Response: Am I attempting to ignore, or listening for, that inner voice?
That Bonus Reading is awesome... ENJOY!
The late Dr. S. M. Lockeridge, a pastor from San Diego, California said these words in a sermon in Detroit in 1976:
My King was born King. The Bible says He's a Seven Way King. He's the King of the Jews - that's an Ethnic King. He's the King of Israel - that's a National King. He's the King of righteousness. He's the King of the ages. He's the King of Heaven. He's the King of glory. He's the King of kings and He is the Lord of lords. Now that's my King.
Well, I wonder if you know Him. Do you know Him? Don't try to mislead me. Do you know my King? David said the Heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork. My King is the only one of whom there are no means of measure that can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of the shore of His supplies. No barriers can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
He's enduringly strong. He's entirely sincere. He's eternally steadfast. He's immortally graceful. He's imperially powerful. He's impartially merciful. That's my King. He's God's Son. He's the sinner's saviour. He's the centerpiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He's honest. He's unique. He's unparalleled. He's unprecedented. He's supreme. He's pre-eminent. He's the grandest idea in literature. He's the highest personality in philosophy. He's the supreme problem in higher criticism. He's the fundamental doctrine of historic theology. He's the carnal necessity of spiritual religion. That's my King.
He's the miracle of the age. He's the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him. He's the only one able to supply all our needs simultaneously. He supplies strength for the weak. He's available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He's the Almighty God who guides and keeps all his people. He heals the sick. He cleanses the lepers. He forgives sinners. He discharged debtors. He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent and He beautifies the meek. That's my King.
Do you know Him? Well, my King is a King of knowledge. He's the wellspring of wisdom. He's the doorway of deliverance. He's the pathway of peace. He's the roadway of righteousness. He's the highway of holiness. He's the gateway of glory. He's the master of the mighty. He's the captain of the conquerors. He's the head of the heroes. He's the leader of the legislatures. He's the overseer of the overcomers. He's the governor of governors. He's the prince of princes. He's the King of kings and He's the Lord of lords. That's my King.
His office is manifold. His promise is sure. His light is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you . . . but He's indescribable. That's my King. He's incomprehensible, He's invincible, and He is irresistible.
I'm coming to tell you this, that the heavens of heavens can't contain Him, let alone some man explain Him. You can't get Him out of your mind. You can't get Him off of your hands. You can't outlive Him and you can't live without Him. The Pharisees couldn't stand Him, but they found out they couldn't stop Him. Pilate couldn't find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldn't get their testimonies to agree about Him. Herod couldn't kill Him. Death couldn't handle Him and the grave couldn't hold Him. That's my King.
He always has been and He always will be. I'm talking about the fact that He had no predecessor and He'll have no successor. There's nobody before Him and there'll be nobody after Him. You can't impeach Him and He's not going to resign. That's my King! That's my King! Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory. Well, all the power belongs to my King. We're around here talking about black power and white power and green power, but in the end all that matters is God's power.
Thine is the power. Yeah. And the glory. We try to get prestige and honor and glory for ourselves, but the glory is all His. Yes. Thine is the Kingdom and the power and glory, forever and ever and ever and ever. How long is that? Forever and ever and ever and ever. . . And when you get through with all of the ever's, then . . .Amen!
That's MY King
Do You Know Him?
What's in your cup?

I have to admit that it does take alot of energy to think of something to write. I know, I know....just write about what's going on in my life, blah blah blah...My life isn't too exciting.
-5:00 AM: Wake up - find something to eat for b-fast & lunch w/o waking family.
-5:15 Drive to work.
-5:50 Arrive at work and log into phone & computer.
-6:00 take first of 50 phone calls for they day from a person who works w/ computers, but doesn't know how to operate one.....(OK I'll stop grumbling).
-11:00 Lunch. (PB&J at my desk)
-12:00 PM Return to the phones.
-5:00 Leave work.
-5:45 Return home.
-5:45 - 10:00 play w/ kids, love on the wife, talk to neighbors.
-10:00 Go to bed.
I know, that that doesn't sound very exciting, but it was a good day.
In retrospect, that means 'looking back on the day', God has blessed me immensely. I have a wonderful family, beautiful wife, good friends, a job & live in America. I would still be as blessed if I lived in another country, but I like America. :o)
In the future I will try to be alittle more wordy for blogging purposes & less into videos, but don't get mad at me if 1 slips in every once in awhile.
By the way, this is a test to see if anyone reads this at all, I may just go back to videos. No pressure, but it's all up to the readers, that's you, if I keep typing or not.

Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez 23 and Enrico Garza 26, probably believed they would easily overpower a home alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two story home.
It seems the two crooks never learned two things, they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buck shot from the 11 year olds knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals. When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive.
It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45 caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. The victim, 50 year old David Burien, was not so lucky as he died from stab wounds to the chest.
YouTube Announces Winners of First-Ever Awards
Tuesday , March 27, 2007
NEW YORK —
The video series "Ask a Ninja" and OK Go's treadmill-choreographed music video are among the winners in the first YouTube Video Awards.
The video-sharing site announced the seven winners from its inaugural awards on Monday, a week after the nominees were put forth for voting. Each category included 10 nominated videos, which users could rank in order of their liking.
"These individuals put the first stitches in the fabric of the YouTube community," said Jamie Byrne, head of product marketing for YouTube. "Instead of seeing a way to share videos, they saw an opportunity for worldwide visibility and through their success have changed the landscape of how a 'star' is defined."
• Click here for FOXNews.com's Personal Technology Center.
The power-pop band OK Go, perhaps the most professional of the mostly amateur nominees, won most creative video for their "Here It Goes Again" music video. "Ask a Ninja," the popular comedy created by Kent Nichols and Douglas Sarine, won for best series.
"Ask a Ninja" triumphed over perhaps YouTube's biggest celebrity: Lonelygirl15. That bedroom production finished fourth, behind "Ask A Gay Man" and "Chad Vader."
Terra Naomi won for best music video for her song "Say It's Possible," a one-shot clip of her playing acoustic guitar and singing. Naomi has parlayed her online success into a record deal with Island Records, and will release her debut album this summer.
Best commentary was one of the most hotly contested categories, as it pitted several of YouTube's most high-profile personalities against one another. A vlogger known as "The Winekone" won over Peter Oakley ("Geriatric1927") and Paul Robinett ("Renetto").
A video calling for a "Free Hugs Campaign" won for most inspirational video. Australian Juan Mann's video set off an online wildfire of similar "Free Hugs" campaigns.
Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox, also known as Smosh, won for best comedy video. Dony Permedi's animated video "Kiwi!" — which began as a master's thesis on animation, won for most adorable video.
The winners and nominees are compiled in a gallery at http://www.youtube.com/YTAwards. YouTube says it will later unveil what a YouTube Video Award will look like.
Google-owned, San Bruno, Calif.-based YouTube Inc. was founded in February 2005. Media conglomerate Viacom Inc. (VIA) recently sued YouTube for $1 billion, claiming the site infringes on copyrights on a "huge scale."
Several other media companies have reached agreements to supply YouTube with clips.
According to comScore Media Metrix, YouTube attracted 133.5 million visitors worldwide in January.
I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the MarineCorps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quickbefore all of the places are filled.
I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m.but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do beforebreakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feedto pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.
Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water. Breakfast isstrong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weakon chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food,but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live oncoffee. Their food plus yours holds you until noon when you get fed again.It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.
We go on "route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks toharden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "routemarch" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys getsore feet and we all ride back in trucks.
The country is nice but awful flat The sergeant is like a school teacher. Henags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels justride around and frown. They don't bother you none.
This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals forshooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk headand don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home.All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even loadyour own cartridges. They come in boxes.
Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestlewith them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy.It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best theygot in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake I only beathim once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 poundsand he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.
Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers getonto this setup and come stampeding in.
Your loving daughter,
If you haven't done the math, that was 15 years ago.
I Thank God everyday for who He has given me to love! I couldn’t ask for a better person to live with for the rest of my life with. Despite what others say, I DO have the best wife in the world.
Guru - I LOVE YOU! I Always have & Always will!!!!!
drinking beer. Jim turns to Bob and says, "You know, I'm tired of going
through life without an education. Tomorrow I think I'll go to the
community college, and sign up for some classes."
Bob thinks it's a good idea, and the two leave. The next day, Jim goes
down to the college and meets Dean of Admissions, who signs him up for the
four basic classes: Math, English, history, and Logic.
"Logic?" Jim says. "What's that?"
The dean says, "I'll give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?"
"Yeah." "Then logically speaking, because you own a weed eater, I think
that you would have a yard."
"That's true, I do have a yard."
"I'm not done," the dean says. "Because you have a yard, I think
logically that you would have a house."
"Yes, I do have a house."
"And because you have a house, I think that you might logically have a
"Yes, I have a family."
"I'm not done yet. Because you have a family, then logically you must
have a wife And because you have a wife, then logic tells me you must be a
"I am a heterosexual. That's amazing, you were able to find out all of
that because I have a weed eater."
Excited to take the class now, Jim shakes the Dean's hand and leaves to
go meet Bob at the bar. He tells Bob about his classes, how he is signed up
for Math, English, History, and Logic.
"Logic?" Bob says, "What's that?"
Jim says, "I'll give you an example. Do you have a weed eater?"
"Then you're a queer."

"RUNNING WITH SCISSORS"
IF YOU WERE BORN BEFORE 1970, WE WILL CALL YOU A SURVIVOR.
-CHANCES ARE YOU WERE BORN TO MOTHERS WHO SMOKED AND DRANK, TOOK ASPIRIN, ATE BLUE CHEESE, AND THE FIRST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE WERE MORE THAN LIKELY SPENT IN A HAND ME DOWN CRIB SPRUCED UP WITH COLORFUL LEAD PAINT.
-WE HAD NO CHILD-PROOF LIDS ON OUR MEDICINE BOTTLES, NO CHILD-PROOF CABINETS, OUTLETS, OR DOORKNOBS.
-OUR AUTOMOBILES HAD NO SEATBELTS OR AIRBAGS. AND RIDING IN THE BACK OF A PICK-UP TRUCK ON A WARM SUMMER DAY WAS A SPECIAL TREAT.
-WE DRANK WATER FROM A GARDEN HOSE AND NOT FROM A BOTTLE. WE SHARED A SOFT DRINK WITH FOUR OF OUR FRIENDS, ALL FROM ONE BOTTLE AND NO ONE DIED.
-WE ATE CUPCAKES, BREAD AND BUTTER, AND DRANK SODA POP WITH SUGAR. BUT WE WEREN’T OVERWEIGHT BECAUSE WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING.
-WE’D LEAVE HOME IN THE MORNING AND PLAY ALL DAY, AS LONG AS WERE BACK WHEN THE STREET LIGHTS CAME ON.
-WE’D SPEND HOURS BUILDING OUR GO CARTS OUT OF SCRAPS FROM THE WOOD PILE AND RIDE DOWN THE HILL ONLY TO FIND OUT WHO FORGOT THE BRAKE.
-NO ONE WAS ABLE TO REACH US ALL DAY AND THAT WAS OK.
-WE DIDN’T HAVE PLAYSTATIONS, NINTENDOS, X-BOX, AND 99 CHANNELS ON CABLE TV. NO VIDEO TAPE MOVIES, NO SURROUND SOUND, NO CELL PHONES, AND NO PERSONAL COMPUTERS.
-WHAT WE DID HAVE WERE FRIENDS.
-WE FELL OUT OF TREES, GOT CUT, BROKE OUR BONES AND TEETH, AND THERE WERE NO LAWSUITS FROM THE ACCIDENTS.
-WE MADE UP GAMES WITH STICKS AND TENNIS BALLS AND ATE WORMS AND, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, THEY DIDN’T GROW INSIDE YOU.
-WE PLAYED BASEBALL IN A VACANT LOT AND HELD LITTLE LEAGUE TRYOUTS WHERE NOT EVERYONE MADE THE TEAM. AND THOSE WHO DIDN’T, LEARNED HOW TO DEAL WITH DISAPPOINTMENT.
-THE IDEA OF A PARENT BAILING US OUT OF TROUBLE WHEN WE BROKE THE LAW WAS UNHEARD OF BECAUSE OUR PARENTS SIDED WITH THE LAW.
-WE CROSSED OUR EYES AND THEY NEVER STUCK.
-WE SAID THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE WITH “ONE NATION UNDER GOD” AND NEVER THOUGHT TWICE.
-WE RODE OUR BIKES TO FAR AWAY PLACES AND NEVER WORE A HELMET.
-WE CUT OUR HANDS ON METAL ICE CUBE TRAYS IN THE SUMMER.
-AND IN THE FALL, BURNING LEAVES IN YOUR BACKYARD WAS NORMAL.
OUR GENERATION HAS PRODUCED SOME OF THE BEST RISK TAKERS, PROBLEM SOLVERS, AND INVENTORS EVER.
SURVIVING ALL OF THAT MAKES ONE WANT TO RUN WITH SCISSORS!!!!!
