Update 6/28/05

(ok forget the numbering thing)

This weekend I along with my family went with some members of our church on our yearly church-weekend-camping trip to winter

park. We enjoyed a weekend of swimming, fishing, mini golf and volleyball. Yes, they have a pool! We went to the YMCA camp of

the rockies and they had a pool with slide, along with a gym where we played volleyball and you can also skate. They also

have a 18 hole mini golf course. We had alot of rain, but most of it was light and we also had alot of time without rain.
After the church camp our family (minus my mom, becuase of babysitting she had to do) stayed an extra night and went fishing

for four hours the next day, resulting in my cooked-lobster like appearence.

This weekend Sergay helped me learn a very important phrase as well. His phrase of the week being; “It’s ok.” after merciless

repition is causing me to end up hearing myself saying “it’s ok” to many things, immensly improving my outlook on people,

things they do, people I don’t particularly like, and helping my attitiude towards things that would normally irritate me.
I thank the Lord for this very small but important attitude adjustment causing a much more christian type attitude, and more

patience in dealing with those that don’t always use their heads quite as much as their mouths.

Well thats all till next post. I need to go fix a car now, wish me luck (bleh!)

Praying for America,

BTW I’m going camping this weekend and I only have about ten class hours left till i get my driver’s education class basically finished.

Superheroes and Villians

Here is another blog that I write on. It is a story about super heroes and super villians. Sort of a comic book like story. It’s really quite interesting, please do go ahead and read.

PS start with episode one if you have not already read it.

A new study says that studies can say whatever they want and people will just listen becuase it’s a study

Ok this is probably the fifth post but i decided to start numbering them and i’m not going to go count.

So I got my drivers license today! That was cool, and it was pretty easy except i had to copy a ton of stuff to the standerd drive time log sheets. The actual drive test only took fifteen minutes and the guy that did them was really nice.
Unfortunatly my drivers license remains only a keepsake because my beloved father doesn’t want me to drive till he puts me on the Inscurance and wants me to finish my driving program which insists that i have 30 full hours of “classtime”. So I’m doomed to remain drivingless (i know it’s not a word…
now it is)until i finish 15 hours of class time. So i’m thinking ill fix our white buick’s power steering and ask my dad if I can have it to make some classtime.

“HURRY UP! The stopsign is turning yellow!!”

“Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner.”

Quite interesting. You might have seen this, you might have not. I got it on e-mail, but it’s pretty good so here you go. Just letting you know I did not write this.

Things that make you think a little……..

1. There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq during the month of January….. In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January. That’s just one American City, about as deadly as the entire war torn country of Iraq.

2. When some claim President Bush shouldn’t have started this war, state the following ..

FDR…led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year.

Truman…finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us. >From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,334 per year.

John F. Kennedy. started the Vietnam conflict in
1962. Vietnam never attacked us. Johnson…turned Vietnam into a quagmire. >From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton…went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden’s head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.

3. In the two years since terrorists attacked us President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but…It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51-day operation.

We’ve been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records.

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick killing a woman.

Wait, there’s more…………………..

Some people still don’t understand why military personnel do what they do for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive impromptu speech, but it’s also a good example of one man’s explanation of why men and women in the armed services do what they do for a living. This is a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served think of our military.

JOHN GLENN ON THE SENATE FLOOR Date: Mon, 26 Jan 2004 11:13

Senator Howard Metzenbaum to Senator Glenn: “How can you run for Senate when you’ve never held a real job?”

Senator Glenn: “I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions. My plane was hit by antiaircraft fire on 12 different occasions. I was in the space program.

It wasn’t my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to the bank. I ask you to go with me … as I went the other day… to a veteran’s hospital and look those men – with their mangled bodies – in the eye, and tell THEM they didn’t hold a job! You go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the widows and orphans of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee… and you look those kids in the eye and tell them that their Dads didn’t hold a job.

You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends buried than I’d like to remember, and you watch those waving flags.

You stand there, and you think about this nation, and you tell ME that those people didn’t have a job? I’ll tell you, Howard Metzenbaum; you should be on your knees every day of your life thanking God that there were some men – SOME MEN – who held REAL jobs. And they required a dedication to a purpose – and a love of country and a dedication to duty that was more important than life itself. And their self-sacrifice is what made this country possible.

I HAVE held a job, Howard! What about you?”

For those who don’t remember – During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA

If you can read this, thank a teacher…. If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran. Please keep this circulating.

Happy Dad’s day, leave a comment, tell me what you thought.
Leave a comment, tell me what you didn’t think.

PS Pray for me, my driver’s test is tomorrow, for my liscence
Till next post,

Your faithful typer,


This weekend-

I had quite an interesting and long weekend this pas friday through monday. To start it all off we had a missionary family

from germany come to stay at our house last friday. They were great and alot of fun. One of the things that just brings them

closer to us is that both of our families are missionaries, and our family is german just a few generations back from

Germany. So it was really neat learning more about our heritage.
They sang a song for us in german and it was really really beautiful, Their kids are lucky to have a family that is very

musically talented. They had five kids and one freind traveling with them. Four of them girls, the oldest 18 and the youngest

and the only boy (who stayed in my room along with my brothers) 11 years old. Saturday morning they left to go to other


But wait there’s more!!

On Sunday I went to my freind Max’s house along with my brother and we then spent two days making a movie together. Along

with Sergay, Max’s brother, and Mason, Sergay’s freind we worked straight through most of the daylight hours after church and

the next day making this movie. Unfortunatly even with two whole days of work, we only got a fifteen minute movie plus

extras. Although it’s one of the best Deck of Cards (our company) has ever made. With a cheap camcorder and windows movie

maker, though I thought it was pretty good. Anyway, it is called The Adventures of Fruitman, and we hope to make more

episodes soon. Although Chandler (a member of Deck of Cards productions)hasn’t gotten a copy yet i expect it to be on his

website soon. So if you want to see it be watching for it on The world of Disiance


Well, what happened yesterday thats worth telling you about? I went downstairs to comb my hair, and waddya know! There’s

water all over the bathroom floor. Come to find out that there is water all over the laundry room too. So we are having a

plumber come today and check it out.

Today and later- This next weekend we are planning to go to a men’s work retreat at Twin Peaks Bible Camp, which is always

fun becuase we get to shoot shotguns 😀 woohoo! Anyway, this next monday I am finally going to get my drivers lisence.


Also my finger is still a bit bruised but healing.

well thats all for this time. Till next post,
