I am so guilty of the "whose preaching today." Whenever my pastor isn't there I think of all the other things I could've done. Whom am I worshipping?

12,000 calories per day? I do that all the time....

Great list this week! Too bad you did not find anything regarding Obama and McCain's time at Saddleback (ha! ha!).

Thought of you when I read this article yesterday....

Talk about a homeowner's association out of control!

Thanks again for "dumping" all that on my plate. I wonder if they have "idea calories" or something - because my plate is full yet again.

Your welcome, Samurai. It's good to know the love is appreciated and doesn't go to waste.

Reep, I feel ya. I can do 12,000 calories in one sitting at Pancho's Mexican Buffet.

Where are my gold medals?!

Jesus Girl, you're obviously not alone. We tend to not advertise a guest speaker, unless he carries a certain amount of gravitas. Yet, for some, they might stay in bed unless it's RC Sproula or The Pipe rolling through Providence Church.

I don't humor myself that I'm that huah, but people do like their routine and expectations to be met.

Like a restaurant you might frequent, it doesn't have to be 4 stars, but consistency will keep you coming back.

Kelly, great find on that article. Who would have thought Illinois Nazis would try to colonize the DFW metroplex?!

This is Texas, folks! It's not like it was a 1970s pick up truck. The things was new. Sheesh. Next they will give him the business because he only has 15 pieces of flair in his flowerbeds.
