Parting Ways with YTB

Jamie and I have decided to part ways with YTB Travel. Let's just say, we felt we were not being delt with in a totally honest way. Saying that, if you have any travel needs go to the more well known companies like: Hotels.com, Expedia.com, or Travelocity.com, among others.

Short and simple and this blog is done! See ya next time!

To Fat to Execute

The State of Ohio has a problem! It seems an inmate on death row is "too fat" to execute in a humane manner. Click Here to read more about it! I don't have much else to say about this, I just thought it was very interesting. If the fellow was unfortunate enough to be on death-row in Texas, we would probably kill him anyway.

Considering a Name Change

I just found out there is another blog out there (in the blogspot groups) called "Thoughts From Me" .... it has caused me to consider a name change for my blog. It is so hard to be original these days and coming up with a new name may pose a challenge for me. I might just stick to what I have. In the meantime I will roll a few different names around in my head. If you have any suggestions for a possible new name for my blog let me know, OK!

The Day After Hurricane Ike

It's the day after Hurricane Ike and all is well at the English household. There is a big-big pile of tree limbs and branches in the front yard and State Farm insurance has issued us a claim number for our roof. We lost electricity for about 8 hours and our roof took a beating from falling limbs and high winds but other than that everyone is safe and sound.

To celebrate God's protection of our family we are going to watch a Christian music group called 33 Miles in concert tonight in Kilgore. They are an up and coming group and the one song I've heard from them on the radio sounds good.

On a different note: Rachel, my daughter, just found out she will playing percussion in the band. She is in her first year in band. Provided she likes band and sticks with it all through High School, this means I have to hear 7 years of drums banging around the house as she practices for her performances. Tylenol anyone? Caleb, my son, plays the trombone and his first Pep-Rally performance and football game performance is coming up on Thursday. I am very proud of him.
