I'll Never Understand

why some ladies feel it necessary to declare to the world their self centered or mean spirited nature via license plate holders.


Things That Make Me Feel Manly

  • Grilling meat
  • Chopping wood
  • Fixing the vacuum cleaner
  • Making loud rock and roll music
  • Putting in a strong tackle
  • Bleeding from soccer wounds
  • P.E.C. Meeting
  • Praying with the family
  • Bearing testimony
  • Doing yard work
  • Lopping off tree limbs
  • Moving heavy furniture
  • Making two dashboard lights turn back off in one trip to the gas station
  • Carrying Abby on my shoulders

How about you? What makes you feel manly or womanly?



Some People Say

Some people say electric cars are the transportation of the future.

Others say zero emissions are a falsehood because you are in essence plugging your electric car into a coal burning power plant.

I say I'm holding out for a garbage-burning, flying Delorean.


Worse Than Texting and Driving?

Despite all that is said about the dangers and stupidity of texting and driving, I still see it happen on a regular basis. It's pretty disturbing, but this morning on my way to work I saw something even more stupid and dangerous. A woman in a black car passes me at approximately 75 mph. I glance over and see her shoveling a spoonful of cold cereal into her mouth!

I'll admit it, I have been known on occasion to eat food while I drive, but seriously cold cereal? I'm not sure what had control of the wheel because her left hand was holding the bowl up to her greedy face, and her right hand was busy with the spoon. She must have had a third hand, because I noticed her fiddle with the radio and then her hair as she pulled further away from me and swerved in and out of the HOV lane.

It got me thinking, has anybody seen anybody doing anything more stupid while driving? Chime in, I'm curious.


U.S.A. Rodriguez

I came across these hilarious videos today and had to share. They feature U.S.A. Rodriguez, goal celebration coach and numerous MLS stars. Kids: some of these celebrations would earn you a yellow card, but some would probably be worth it.

These are my favorite 2, there are 8 total. All are worth watching.
