Peach Bowl

Oh WoW! LSU stormed all over Miami - they started the season with a hurricane and ended the season with the Hurricanes and what an ending! Nothing went wrong for the Tigers from La. Their quarterback had never started a game and he showed what good stuff he is made of and led the team to a 40-3 over the Miami Hurricanes. This gives them an 11 win season for the first year of their new coach. I had a feeling that LSU would win but never dreamed they'd win so convincingly. WoW! What a great SEC bowl game win!
Speaking of SEC bowl games - what happened to South Carolina?? They started the game off so well but ended up losing the game to Missouri - ouch!
There aren't any bowl games I'm interested in watching tomorrow but I'm gonna watch Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia play their games on Mon., Fla St on Tues, and I'm pullin for Texas on Wed - Hook 'em horns!

Well, lacking football to discuss (at least until this week-end when the bowl games start in earnest) I checked on the MSU basketball team and find that we are 9-3. BUT we have yet to play an SEC game and that will be yet another test of whether we are a decent team (which I think we're not) or not. Our team is just much to young but we'll see as the season progresses, whether I'm right or wrong.

Well, I survived yet another attempt at being a TaeKwonDo instructor. I have very, very little experience doing so - tonight's class was just my 4th or 5th time to teach but the first where I had more then 45 min. warning that I would do so. Its Christmas and some of the instructors are out of town and others had to work so I marched on in and taught. I can see that each time I teach, I do a bit better and am a bit more organized each time. I don't feel like such a failure after tonight's class!
Check out the dojo's webpage - Starkville Martial Arts - I'm a certified assistant instructor, a 2nd degree black belt in TKD and a brown belt in JuJitSu. It's a lot of fun and a great way to get some exercise in as well!

Christmas page

So, here's my plain and simple Christmas page - hopefully during the holidays I'll be able to work more on my real site and get it loaded after Christmas. Anyway, here's the addy - Christmas Page

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas??

So why is it that there are stores that are banning the use of the phrase Merry Christmas from their stores? If they are worried about the use of Christmas then why do they continually sell Christmas items in the store rather then holiday items. They still have Christmas trees, Christmas cards, Christmas music, and so on. Are they afraid that the small percantage of the population who are from other religious persuasions are all of a sudden offended by the phrase Merry Christmas (that which has been used for eons without any complaint) and so are banning it in favor of Happy Holidays so as to be more inclusive of our fellow neighbors? Uh oh, I guess that means we should declard Dec. 24th and 25th as Happy Holiday day/eve instead of Christmas day/eve and no more Christmas presents, they are now to be called holiday gifts. Hmmm....and how will the music industry respond? Will all the songs with the word Christmas in them have to be re-written and use a less offensive term now? I can't imagine such songs as Oh Holiday Tree Oh Holiday Tree or how about I'm dreaming of a white Holiday or We wish you a happy Holiday or even the 12 days of Holiday. Kinda ridiculous, don't you think?? You can't take CHRIST out of CHRISTmas but they sure are trying....


Ugly Lights

Oh my, you must visit this site - it is filled with lots of pictures of how NOT to decorate your house for Christmas. There are some absolutely hideous house decorations on this site.
