(from my 'Soapbox' that I'm moving here to my blog)...

Green (environmentally friendly) Fuels and Cars

I don't know why people still need to be dependent on oil from the ground to produce the fuels we need to get through our daily lives. There are other options, some of which are proven to work not only in practice but also in business.

Wait ... I take it back, I do know why we are so dependent on oil: Oil Companies and certain politicians make too much money from oil for them to promote something that is good for the planet!

Oh, well. Here are some links to a few environmentally friendly fuels and cars that you may not know about. Some are here and now, and some hope to become main stream, while others are still trying to live up to the hype they create.

Thermo-Depolymerization (Thermal Conversion Process) creates oil from just about anything

Biodiesel is a diesel fuel from vegetation

District Convention
We just got back from our 2004 'Walking With God' District Convention … I can't beleive how much more work our kids are this year than last!

I don't know how my mom brought three, then four of us to the Assemblies when I was a kid … maybe we were easier to deal with than our kids are. I hope as they get older it will get easier (that's what several people have told me).

I walked around with my kids (to keep them quite) more this past weekend than I did the previous month!

Why is it you don't really crave food until you are on a diet?!?

Oh, well, at least I've lost 7 pounds over the last 2 weeks.

Right now I weigh 207 pounds, the diet I'm on says I should weigh 158 pounds … give me a break, where do they think I live? Ethiopia?.

I may actually try to get down to 165 or 170 pounds. I just look too skinny when I'm below 160! I haven't been that thin since high school … and yes, that was a long time ago, thanks for reminding me of my age too! Next you'll be telling me how I had more hair back then also.

Oh, poop…
A few posts back I said that my son (Owen, 1 year 5 months) had gone pee pee on the toilet. Yesterday he went poopy on the toilet.

I know you are probebly sick of all of this potty language, but this is exciting stuff to me. As I mentioned before: between my daughter (Alana, 3 years 5 months) and my son, we've been changing diapers for almost 3½ years! We are ready for this to end! STOP THE MADNESS! :-)
