Wow, thanks for the link to my blog. I am taking a break from cleaning up the horrible RE-landscaping job that Ike did on our yard - and working on the Ticker Tape for tomorrow....ha!

Hope you guys are all safe - I know Ike's wind went all the way up to Indiana. Wow!

The NFC East is a power house this year, no doubt about it. The season is still pretty young though.

Thank you for helping clarify the difference between samurai and ninjas.

I am not sure which team I want to win more tonight. Either way, it should be a good game.

Geaux Panthers!

Samurai, I thought of you when I saw that distinction and thought you'd appreciate it ... not because you didn't know yourself, of course, but to alleviate any confusion for the common (wo)man.

For those who didn't read it, here's the Cliff's Notes version:
"The Quick Trick: Samurai wore elaborate armor and never stabbed anybody in the back; ninjas wore no armor and loved stabbing people in the back."

Yeah, 3 of the 6 NFC playoff teams were from the East last year. I wouldn't be shocked to see that again, but with the Philthadelphia Eagles in there instead of the Deadskins.

Lance, that video was good bull, wasn't it? "Ain't nobody trapped you!"

Kelly, happy to hear that's all that was remodeled.

Gunny, looks like you and think in the same directions. I finished Philippians about 3 weeks ago on Sunday mornings and was scheduled to begin Ecclesiastes this past Sunday night, but didn't due to the flu.

What have been your most helpful commentaries on Ecclesiastes?
