It was pretty interesting that both prime time sporting events were both in St Louis last night, but I have a feeling most of those at the Rams games would have rather been watching baseball.
Man, David Ortiz is having one heck of a series at the plate, I think he’s 11-15.
My father had me very late in life and was a longtime smoker, so he wasn’t in great health most of my life and I can’t recall doing anything athletic with him, even playing catch. Last night DaughterGeeding asked me to “coach” her to kick a soccer ball and play catch and not only did I jump at the opportunity, I cherished every second of it.
BoyGeeding walked in on me peeing (in the toilet this time) and when I finished he asked me to do more. I told him there is no more, and then he just started to cry and whine. A lot of times he’ll walk in on me working out and when I finish a set or get off the elliptical he’ll also ask me to do more, and a lot of times despite being barely alive, I do it for him.
The Obama Administration has done a terrible job at educating the public about ACA and healthcare.gov is an embarrassment, heck, even I think they should delay things up to a year.
Rumor has it if you look at the healthcare.gov code it’s copied straight from an old GeoCities website.
I had a lot of concerns that the Wall Street Journal would lose a lot of journalistic integrity when Rupert Murdoch’s New Corp acquired them. Well, now they have Suzanne Somers as a somewhat regular contributor labeling her an expert. Her latest article is title “The Affordable Care Act Is a Socialist Ponzi Scheme.” Too bad John Ritter isn’t alive to write a dissenting view.
Highland Park Presbyterian Church will be moving from the PCUSA to a more conservative denomination, and I expect my church will do the same in the somewhat near future. I am bugged by the interim senior pastor’s quote of, “we are not walking away from our Presbyterian values; we are restoring them.” That just sounds like a passive or indirect way of saying that those who disagree with you have no values.
Organized religion drives me batty sometimes. That being said, in an effort to better understand and appreciate different views and theology, I can see myself switching to another denomination every five years or so, but that’s harder now with family. We did visit our local Methodist church a few weeks ago, and that was only because DaughterGeeding attends preschool there and they had a special event on a Sunday for her class, but it did leave an impression on me. But to be honest, I can also see myself leaving organized relgion all together.
