My Blog and welcome to it.


We join in the mourning for the loss of Jessica Marie Lunsford, missing since February 23 after disappearing from her Florida home. Law enforcement officials announced late Friday, March 18, that John Evander Couey has confessed to authorities that he killed Jessica.

Obviously the news media will have the latest on this, and look here shortly as we share our own feelings about Jessica's loss. Video Professor had contributed to the reward fund for any information leading to the safe return of Jessica.

Sadly, that will not happen.

Couey has a previous record of sex offenses, and was able to spend time with a family member within eyesite of Jessica's home.

Please join us in praying for her family in this most difficult time.

Democracy comes to Iraq.
History made this week as the Iraqi National Assembly convened for the first time. 275 ELECTED members sat down to begin the business of governing. The first elected governmental body in Iraq in 50 years! We honor their bravery, and the bravery and sacrifice of the troops that made it all possible.

What Glass Ceiling?
The hot political buzz this week centers on the top candidates for the 2008 Presidential Race. Top Republican choice is Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Top Democratic Pick is Senator Hillary Clinton.

Both are saying no, and at the same time leaving the door open just a teeny bit! IF these were the candidates in 2008, it certainly would be history making!

Star Wars
Folks will be lining up around the block, just to see the trailer for the final installment of the Star Wars series! Episode III “Revenge of the Sith” comes to a theater near you May 19th. Visit the website at There’s an entire generation of folks out there who weren’t even around when the original installment of the series debuted in 1977, 28 years ago! May the Force be with you! (What the heck is a “Sith?”

NCAA Brackets
I guarantee you that by Friday March 18th, waste paper baskets in offices around the country will already be full of discarded bracket sheets. I heard one report that 1 out of every 10 Americans join various NCAA pools. And it’s estimated that $4.5 BILLION is wagered on what is known as March Madness.

Boffo Year for Bono
Looks like it could be a banner year for Bono and his fellow Irish Rockers, U2. The band was just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week, and there’s also talk about Bono being up for a Nobel Peace Prize. Plus they even have an iPod model named after them.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This is also the week for the wearin’ o’ the green. The Leprechauns (and their many, many friends) will be out in full force this week. Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all!

Site o’ the week
Ok, time for our favorite site of the week. If you've ever been stuck in traffic, and there doesn't seem to be any good reason for the traffic jam, this little site will demonstrate just how easy it is for a freeway to turn into a parking lot.
