School and Lawn Mowing

Hey guys!

Today has been a pretty normal day. School work, cattle feeding and a bit of lawn mowing filled the day. Also had a little time to watch the hurricane Rita coverage on MSNBC. It looks to be a bad storm but not near as bad as the traffic out of Houston right now. Cars are backed up as far as 100 miles in some places. Yikes!

Also had an update on John Roberts confirmation hearing. He passed the Senate Judiciary Committee 13-5 in favor (that includes Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn voting in favor) The ACLJ tells us to expect the Roberts confirmation to go to the full Senate tomorrow, with a vote by the middle of next week.

Also if you would like to keep "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, please add your name to the ACLJ petition here

There is also big new breaking over at The Account. I don't think I could have said it better then David so here it is!

"D3, author of In Rejection of Mediocrity, has teamed up with Ryan B, a fellow teen from Mississippi who found himself and his family disinherited by Hurricane Katrina. Not one to sit around (as D3 has always been, and apparently, Ryan B is the same...), the two put their heads together and started a blog called Gulf Coast Connection. According to the site, the purpose is to find "a way for teens displaced by Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Rita to connect with their friends." They do this by collecting a profile and email address of the said persons and posting them for their friends to find. Personally, I think this approach is visionary and hope that it goes well for Ryan and others like him. If you know someone affected by Katrina or Rita, please get them hooked up with GCC."

Man, what a cool idea! I may have to slip over there and get an interview in with one of those guys. *grin*

Well, that's all for now!

Ah, well...I'm not good at FPS games. I tried America's Army, but I got stuck in the obstacle course. :D

Well...I'm finally back and attempting to get 5 minutes in while I catch up on a ton on schoolwork...but I sure did hear a lot of first hand stories down in Nashville...I'll have to tell you about some of them this weekend. They were incredible...

When you own property, it’s easy to overlook how much work lawn care can be and it’s something that is not always factored into the routine maintenance. It’s easy to assume that you’ll have an area that requires little lawn maintenance.
