Do you love animals?

Good, then you can take two seconds (maybe longer if you are still using dial-up) to help feed and care for them. It is absolutely free and you do not have to register at the site or give out any personal information. costs you nothing but a few seconds of your time and one more click towards carpal tunnel. If you are one that always says you do not have the time or the money to be a part of a good cause, here is your chance.

Psalm 23 (For the Work Place)

The Lord is my real boss, and I shall not want. He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me. He gently reminds me to pray and do all things without murmuring and complaining. He reminds me that He is my source and not my job. He restores my sanity everyday and guides my decisions that I might honor Him in all that I do. Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mails, system crashes, unrealistic deadlines, budget cutbacks, gossiping co-workers, discriminating supervisors and an aging body that doesn't cooperate every morning, I still will not stop--- for He is with me! His presence, His peace, and His power will see me through. He raises me up, even when they fail to promote me. He claims me as His own, even when the company threatens to let me go. His Faithfulness and love is better than any bonus check His retirement plan beats any 401k there is! When it's all said and done, I'll be working for Him a whole lot longer and for that, I BLESS HIS NAME!!!!!!

Is there a doctor in the house?

A couple of days ago I was running (I use that term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by Louie Giglio...and I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to share what I learned....but I fear not being able to convey it as well as I want. I will share anyway. He (Louie) was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God He spoke the universe into He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire...etc. etc. Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder. At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.) .....and I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and more about God's handiwork. I remember so many times thinking....'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???' Louie went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this, also has the po

Turning the page...

life is such an amazing journey. Your eyes are always opened at some point as well when you know that it is truly time to turn the page and move on to the next chapter in your life. It is never easy but it is something that is necessary for personal growth. If there is something in your life that repeatedly causes you to act impetuously then it is probably best that you remove that from your life. When these things consistently occur time and time again, one could say that this is highly indicative of being a major cause of angst and pain in life. When strong emotions are involved in these types of things it only makes it much more difficult to actually sever the ties and move on but it is better for everyone involved in the end. It is difficult (maybe impossible for some) to see this as not being erroneous but, years down the road everyone involved to look back at this day as a true turning point. The day some of life's complications were eradicated and the next chapter could begi


well here we are at the best work day of the week! I have been super busy this week so no posting as you see. We will see if I can find something of interest to write about this weekend. I know that there are several severe weather alerts across the nation so I hope that everyone remains safe if they are experiencing "turbulence" lol


There was a certain Professor of Religion named Dr. Christianson, a studious man who taught at a small college in the western United States. Dr. Christianson taught the required survey course in Christianity at this particular institution. Every student was required to take this course his freshman year, regardless of his or her major. Although Dr. Christianson tried hard to communicate the essence of the Gospel in his class, he found that most of his students looked upon the course as nothing but required drudgery. Despite his best efforts, most students refused to take Christianity seriously. This year, Dr. Christianson had a special student named Steve. Steve was only a freshman, but was studying with the intent of going on to seminary for the ministry. Steve was popular, he was well liked, and he was an imposing physical specimen. He was now the starting center on the scho ol football team, and was the best student in the professor's class. One day, Dr. Christianson aske

For anyone new to my blog...

I am a male and I am You ask why I would start an entry out with that...well because I have actually found some great stuff (Mainly having to do with cooking) on the web site . I found it through another blog I was reading one day. Hell, I did not even realize it was founded, created, and designed for women until I had already registered after getting some great stuff off the site on Anyway, now for the point of this blog below is an entry (yes I was given permission to repost) from a blog I enjoy reading that has to do with bullies.

Incomprehensible governance...

this was supposed to be the post where I completely condemned the Commonwealth of Virginia. Just so as to not leave you all hanging I will make it short and concise. My ex-girlfriend/fiancée (whom I will call Ms. L) has three beautiful and amazing children. Those three children have a prick of a father. He has repeatedly been in trouble for abuse and Child Protective Services (CPS) has been involved in addition to the police and court system. Yet the guy continues to have his partial custody rights. You read it right...he has the children every weekend; with exception of the second weekend of the month. How is this? It makes ZERO sense to me. Anyway...last weekend it evidentially happened again. Whereas I have not seen the police report; this is what I heard. Their father got angry , lifted one of this six year old boys up by the throat, pushed him back into the wall (breaking the drywall)...while doing so he hot the curtains and the curtain rod fell to the ground. He then pucked up t

Less than 1.5 million...

Are you kidding me? That is all that has joined this site. It is free... They protect your privacy... Will you receive some emails? Sure. How many emails do you get from your favorite clothing store in a month? Or how many pointless jokes or videos do you receive from family and friends on a daily basis? I think you should all join. Maybe people are simply unaware of the site but less than 1.5 million is pathetic to me. Will you agree with every cause that they support? Maybe not... But do you agree with every opinion of anyone on this earth? Just do it already...if you are bored enough to read my blog then you can read an occasional email from this site and possibly help make a difference! By the way I went and had BBQ...YUMMMY!

If you have ever seen LOST or are a fan...

then surely you would want to save the polar bears! You can do your part to try to save them here. In fact if you care to you could join the site 'WE' and be kept up to date on how to do your part for lots of causes that may interest you. OK now I HAVE to go eat! I hope that anyone and everyone that reads this is having a wonderful day!

Time: A precious commodity!

We all know the old saying time is money... well I have always agreed with this statement and even more so when my schedule gets to the point where I have to attempt to do everything needed as succinctly as possible. I realize that a few weeks from now I will have a better routine down but for now I am in a bit of a quandary and should probably not even be posting an entry right But we all know how I have grown to love using my writing skills (or lack thereof) LOL As most of you know, I just moved back to Texas at the beginning of March. Since then I had been seeking employment; while occupying time not spent job hunting with trips to the gym, yoga, and an assortment of other healthy activities! (My apologies for the redundant data preceeding this sentence!) Anyway... I began my new job this week and my schedule went from having nothing but time on my hands to working over 40 hours a week. Now I have to find a way to get my workouts in so as to continue the great progress I

Brief update...

well I have been in hiatus! Sorry. Busy week and I am adjusting to working again. It will take me a while to iron all the kinks out of my new schedule. But the job is going well...I will do my best to give a much more in depth analysis of my week and other observations tomorrow...err I mean today. For anyone interested I stopped by my much neglected LJ a few minutes ago as well. Soooo....if you like my other cyber personality and want to be an enabler to my cyber schizophrenia (LOL) go by and check it out...or not. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend.


1. Every job I have ever had I show up early (95% o the time, and I never take extended breaks or lunches) I am the nerdy guy that co-workers love to 2. I love to put Sriracha Chili Sauce on just about anything! Jalapeños are good in just about any dish as well....I LOVE ME SOME SPICY! 3. From the ages of three to fifteen I spent most of my summers baling hay, milking cows, plowing fields, collecting eggs, feeding the livestock, etc. Yes I was raised a "good ol' boy" LOL 4. I also played several instruments from the age of twelve years old and on...I started with Piano, then Cornet, then Viola, then Guitar, then Bass Guitar, then some drums. I sat first chair most weeks in both band and orchestra. I wish I still had some instruments whereas I can honestly say I was musically gifted at that time in my life. 5. (When I can afford it) I get manicures and pedicures. LOL I hope any male friends of mine do not pull my man card...if they have not already done

Boredom and Dangle Days!

Since I chose not to go pretend I am of Spanish descent this evening, why not fill out a random survey in an attempt to cure my boredom? If I looked on the bed next to you, what would I find? Sadly a laptop and some spare pillows. Do you go to the bathroom with the door open or closed? Closed with my current living situation...once I get my apartment it will be open. In fact, when I am living alone I will officially declare each and every day "Dangle Day"! If and when company come over I will throw something on! Are your underwear and socks folded in your drawer or just thrown in? Folded! Are you kidding me? They are also in nice little rows and organized by type...LOL Sleep on your back or stomach? Back and side mostly. *looks around for my doctor* OK sometimes on my stomach...shhhhh (I was told to stop; I was damaging my back)?! Are you a cuddler? I am man enough to admit that at times I like to cuddle...and others I do not. Do people really exist that want to cuddle 1oo pe

Cinco de Sober...

that is exactly what I am right now. I guess I REALLY am growing Not to say anyone out enjoying this festive day is immature or has not grown up. My point being that I simply made a choice to not show up on my second day of my new job looking like a band member of the Rolling Stones. Last year I was too depressed to get out and so it was easy then. However, two years ago I would have likely requested a half day and been inebriated to the point of public ridicule by sunset. Would I have stopped there? Most likely not...I would have likely run into friends and been notified of a "great" party that one "would be a fool to miss". Of course to be completely honest if I were better off financially I would have most likely gone and had a couple for happy hour somewhere. All in all I can see how I am making much better decisions now than I have in the past. I know that this will all pay off soon and I will be reaping the rewards when I finally get my apartment. It

Random thoughts (that I think are WEIRD)...

Well, now that individuals actually exist that reach the point of boredom to visit (and read) my blog I feel obligated to post Being that I am by no means a star free-lance writer I decided to post some random thoughts. 1. Does anyone else find it strange that nine-year-old boy would tongue kiss a four-year-old girl in the day care center at the gym you work out at? I do an it happened to my yoga instructor's daughter.... WEIRD 2. Does it make sense for a singles group to have a rule against it's members dating? In order to give "full disclosure" this is a singles fellowship group at the church I am a member of..but still?!?! God works in mysterious ways...what if there is a man and women in attendance and their getting married is in God's plan? I know, I know...if it is God's plan it will happen anyway; but does this rule not seem strange to anyone else? (Maybe I am just WEIRD ) LOL 3. I play in a flag football league in Sundays and we welcome femal

Texas Barbies...

Midland Barbie This yuppie Barbie comes with your cho

Is it time to change your sign?

What a difference a few words can make! One day, there was a blind man sitting on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet and a sign that read : 'I am blind, please help.' A creative publicist was walking by and stopped to observe. He saw that the blind man had only a few coins in his hat. He dropped in more coins and, without asking for permission, took the sign and rewrote it . He returned the sign to the blind man and left. That afternoon the publicist returned to the blind man and noticed that his hat was full of bills and coins. The blind man recognized his footsteps and asked if it was he who had ewritten his sign and wanted to know what he had written on it. The publicist responded: 'Nothing that was not true. I just wrote the message a little differently.' He smiled and went on his way. The new sign read: 'Today is Spring and I cannot see it.' Sometimes we need to change our strategy. If we always do what we've always done, we'll a

Time capsule...

It is currently 7:40 PM Central Standard Time. I just recently had dinner with my mother...she made Frito chili pie (I think that is the name of it). Anyway I am just testing this new future post feature on Blogger...LOL

Thinking out loud...

it is Friday! I am currently chillin' at the Coffee Shop 'It's A Grind' waiting for some friends to arrive. I love Wi-Fi! Lets me occupy my time since I always tend to show up early for every Nice art on the wall here...oh friend is here.

What do the Anaheim Angels and HIV/AIDS have in common?

I can tell you...the annaul Orange County AIDS Walk will beheld at Angel's Stadium. Whereas I will not allow this blog to become a place that no one wants to come to I felt compelled to throw this out there and see if it sticks. My Uncle will be walking for the eight year in a row for the cause. Below I will copy and paste the message that he sent me. If you feel you can, or even want to donate you can! Any amount no matter how big or small; and they are tax deductible. To be completely honest...the reason I am posting this here is that due to my recent move and time of unemployment; I will be donating a very small amount ($10 - $20) so I thought maybe some of my friends (or readers of my blog since none of my friends could maybe help out as well. Below is the message form my uncle! "I am doing something really important to help other people, and I am writing to ask for your help. On Saturday, May 10th, I am walking at Orange County AIDS Walk 2008. Click on the link


represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. It is also the ending statement you will hear at the end of a yoga session. Now, being that I will be going back to work with my new job starting Monday I will no longer have the opportunity to attend my Tuesday and Thursday morning yoga classes; still have Saturday morning classes. I am somewhat saddened by this fact but must focus on the positive that I am no longer unemployed! During this time I have utilized my time to make myself a better person. Doing more reading, more exercise (including yoga), and focusing on my short-term and long-term goals. Besides I will still have Saturday Volleyball, Sunday Football, and my other miscellaneous activities I do randomly.
