Huskers v. Cyclones

September 29th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Nothing like a game against Iowa State to cure what ails your favorite team. I’m sure I’ll have to eat those words in a few hours after the Huskers allow several ISU players to look like All-Americans. That’s just the way it is going to be this year. Although I keep trying to get really […]

China I Really Love You

September 29th, 2007 · 1 Comment

Although this is about China… many foreigners in Taiwan will relate in many ways. Mr. Foreigner Guitar Player Singer Guy… I don’t know who you are… but GREAT job on the guitar, the lyrics, the singing, and seemingly doing it all in one take?     那时我住在中国 The time I lived in China我每天吃很多很多 Everyday I […]

They Did Not Give Up

September 28th, 2007 · Comments Off on They Did Not Give Up

I’m a missionary with an organization called Team Expansion. One thing I love about Team Expansion is that they allow me to fail. In fact, in some ways, it *could* be said that they encourage me to fail. WHAT? Of course, we don’t strive for failure, but I’m glad to know that the home office […]

Glenn Beck speech at NRA convention

September 27th, 2007 · Comments Off on Glenn Beck speech at NRA convention

Although it is at the NRA convention, he speaks more about America and other things than about the right to bear arms. When we’ve been back in the USA, I’ve always enjoyed when I had the chance to hear Beck’s radio show or watch his TV show. I love it when people shoot straight and […]

John Ondrasik interviews US Presidential candidates

September 20th, 2007 · Comments Off on John Ondrasik interviews US Presidential candidates

I’ve posted about John Ondrasik before. In a time when Hollywood and many entertainers display a complete disconnect with reality and display their ignorance of history and current events… it is all the more refreshing to hear someone from that sphere who is articulate and knowledgeable. There are a few out there. I want to […]

A Midwest Rite of Passage

September 19th, 2007 · 6 Comments

A few days ago, I mentioned detasseling in my post about Nebraska ag products being sold to Taiwan. I’m sure the internets are all buzzing about detasseling now… so I’ll fill you in. It all started back in the 1940’s. Scientists figured out that corn hybrids were the way to go. The blending of different […]
