  • I attended a funeral yesterday.  A former coworker and friend lost his father to cancer.  It was the second Catholic funeral I have attended.
  • What I didn’t like about this funeral is that it wasn’t personalized one bit.  I could not tell you one thing about the man that died, and there wasn’t even a program provided.
  • I had a conversation with a Catholic friend the other day in which she mentioned the cry rooms at the back of the church.  I honestly had no idea that such a thing existed through my years in the Evangelical and Mainline churches.  The church where the funeral was held had quite a large cry room that was about five to seven pews big.
  • Now that I think about it, Irving Bible Church had some cry rooms but they were relatively small and are not very noticeable at all.
  • In case you were wondering, the churches that I have attended have either a nursery or a childrens’ church.  Most of the time the kids stay during the singing and announcements, but leave to childrens’ church when the sermon is about to begin.
  • On my way to the funeral I saw to police traffic cops wearing bright yellow uniforms trying to catch speeders.  That’s the first time I’ve seen officers wear something so visible.
  • Of all magazines for a general to get in trouble over, who thought it would have been a Rolling Stone magazine cover with an almost naked Lady Gaga holding two machine guns.
  • It doesn’t matter the administration, but if your top general isn’t a believer in your administration, it’s best to cut strings and get people that are on board.  That’s not to say they have to agree on everything or that they can’t have a dissenting viewpoint, but when it comes to not having confidence and making fun of an administration to reporter that’s a different issue.
  • When I first started to work at Southwest (I work at, not for the company, remember) the first thing I noticed on my way to the office is how DART is building a light rail system just outside the property.  After some research, I found that once complete come this December, that would become a cost effective choice for me as the new Carrollton station is just a few miles down the road for me.  But now DART is floating around the idea for people that people that live outside a DART city, like I do, would have to pay an additional two dollars a day for parking.  I’m not sure if I’m willing to spend an extra $40 a month along with another $65 for a monthly pass.  But then again, all of this DART stuff is new to me.
  • In his latest New York Times op-ed piece, Bono relives his own experiences of “Bloody Sunday,” one of the deadliest days of “The Troubles” conflict between Northern Ireland and England, and celebrates the new British Prime Minister’s decision to take blame for the massacre.
  • For my U2 fans, an article about the band, ESPN, and the World Cup.
  • Would a Russian airline create an commercial in which women in bikinis are washing one of their planes?  Yup YouTube
  • A fly landed on Obama
  • Little girl loves ugly horse
  • An interesting dual screen laptop with no keyboard
  • A great idea for a toothbrush

    Definitely, we should surely get more people on board in November. Oh… wait… you mean the other way around. 😉

    I love the phone book photo. I agree that phone books should only be printed and delivered per request, however the companies may then start charging a fee.

    I agree with Sharon – great picture – I think it's more likely they'll start charging a fee to NOT bring you a phone book.
