Help from kids, went to a movie

Got a lot of yard work done yesterday. Brandie mowed the front yard, and Marcus mowed the back, and there was very minimal whining, so as a reward, we went to see Horton Hears a who.

It was a good and funny version of the Doctor Seuss classic and we are looking forward to it coming out on DVD.

I was listening to the radio today and they made mention about being in unity as believers. Even though all of us are different, we can be in unity because we are all in Christ and Christ is in God. This is a great mystery, but keeping that in mind we should strive for unity.

Clear slide for propresenter

I found an interesting thing in the latest version of pro presenter and it would be the set clear key. here is a picture of the key setup screen... this allows you to set an end point to the background, the audio track playing or everything. It is a nice little shortcut to stop a background while still in the middle of a song, especially if emphasis is needed to drop into a more worshipful atmosphere for that part of the song when a background image would be more distracting than helpful.

There's no need to fear, Underdog is here

O.K. all you Underdog fans, IN2TV.COM has underdog now. You can find it HERE.
Watch the Underdog theme done from the movie Underdog that was in theators recently.

The Underdog show was corney, but one of my favorite shows growing up. It is cool to be able to watch entire episodes again including the other episodes that were involved with it like Tennessee Tuxedo, The World of Commander McBragg, Klondike Kat, Go-Go Gophers. Thanks to toon trackers for helping my research. So go to the AOL site linked and watch some Underdog. (and while your at it watch so more of my favorite toons like Rocky and Bulwinke, Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, Hmm I wonder if they have Super Chicken? Every one sing now...

        (The Super Chicken Theme Lyrics)

        When you find yourself in danger,

        When you're threatened by a stranger,

        When it looks like you will take a lickin',

        (puk, puk, puk, puk)

        There is someone waiting,

        Who will hurry up and rescue you,

        just Call for Super Chicken!

        (puk, ack!)

        Fred, if you're afraid you'll have to overlook it,

        Besides you knew the job was dangerous when you took it

        (puk, ack!)

        He will drink his super sauce

        And throw the bad guys for a loss

        And he will bring them in alive and kickin'

        (puk, puk, puk, puk)

        There is one thing you should learn

        When there is no one else to turn to

        Call for Super Chicken!

        (puk, puk, puk, puk)

        Call for Super Chicken!

        (puk, ack!)

        Here all of the songs here

where has all the time gone?

I am reminded of a poem that I heard on a Doctor Seuss special that started out with these words…


"How did it get so late so soon?

It seems to be dark, before it was noon"


Time is just flying by. It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating Easter. and the day before we were celebrating Christmas.

It seems like last week a child was born and now He is 18.


Where is the time going so fast.

song "she has a way" by Billy Joel



I heard this song on the radio. Great lyrics so I looked them up on the internet so that I could share them with my friends. Here they are…


She's got a way about her

I don't know what it is

But I know that I can't live without her


She's got a way of pleasin'

I don't know what it is

But there doesn't have to be a reason



She's got a smile that heals me

I don't know why it is

But I have to laugh when she reveals me


She's got a way of talkin'

I don't know what it is

But it lifts me up when we are walkin'



She comes to me when I'm feelin' down

Inspires me without a sound

She touches me and I get turned around


She's got a way of showin'

How I make her feel

And I find the strength to keep on goin'


She's got a light around her

And everywhere she goes

A million dreams of love surround her



She comes to me when I'm feelin' down

Inspires me without a sound

She touches me and I get turned around


She's got a smile that heals me

I don't know why it is

But I have to laugh when she reveals me

Smudged: My Health

The message that Chris gave us last night was on health. and one of the verses is here

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (New Living Translation)

19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

One of our biggest mistakes in life is to hate our bodies based solely on what society says we should look like. If I did that and became obsessed by it I would look like this:

The Easter tree

O.K. here is my first disappointment with word press- the free service restricts you from posting video's. drag!!!!! So I will be updating both blogs.
Here is a video I threw together from the family Easter gathering. There was a lot of snow still on the ground up north so John and Loretta did an Easter tree for the kids. Here is the video.

word press

I have started to really like the way the word press blog layout and functionality and overall good looks-look. When a link to a webpage is inserted and your readers mouse over the link, a small pop up preview of the webpage that you are pointing at in the link appears. this is not only helpful but is pretty cool as well.
I more than likely will be taking up a more permanent residence on the word press blog (which by the way you can read my entries on it by clicking HERE. Now one of the distractions so far is that I still haven't seen the methods that can be used to e-mail entries into my blog yet like I am currently doing now with blogger. I am composing this blog entry from my e-mail program and will send it directly to my blog and it will format it and post it using the HTML coding that the e-mail editor is using to set up the e-mail. The only problem is that I can't send pictures via e-mail to the blog, I have to upload them. That in some way could be a good thing as if someone found out the e-mail address to the blog they could send a whole mess of pornographic, virus laden images to your blog and make you look bad as well as infect the computers of your readers, So not allowing the e-mailing of pics is o.k. I guess. Maybe in the long run the ability to e-mail to your blog is something that many people in positions of leadership would not want as it would be easier to capture the address from an e-mail and then make them look bad as well. So scratch that, I probably should be taking the time to log into my account and make my entries look better, more professional, and above all else, secure so that my readers would really know that this entry is indeed from ME.
So check out my new blog HERE and see if it looks a tad bit better than this one, if so let me know, if it totally sucks, well don't let me know then (LOL) friendly constructive criticism is always welcome as long as it is not mean spirited and has a valid argument to it.
More later at my other blog.
