1.  This story makes me leary of buying a GPS system despite my inability to navigate the Triad.

2.  Karen and I have decided to run a half marathon in the fall instead of the one in June.  Basically, I’ve got to lose some weight before I can really run like I need to.  Running was killing my knees and back.  So, Karen found a nice Eliptical machine on Craigslist and we are hitting it hard.  Now, if I would only remember to stretch first.  So, I’m aiming for a target weight and hitting the road again after that.

3.  The NBA Playoffs have been a joy to watch.  I’m not sure what they did to increase the flow of the game and the offense, but I like it.  Orlando was amazing in Game 7 at Boston.  KG truly is the heart of their defense and without him they couldn’t get the stops they needed.  I think Cleveland wins the Finals this year and models their franchise after the Bulls:  surround Lebron with role players who do what they’re asked to do.

4.  I am still trying to figure out this network marketing thing.  It’s frustrating because I know there are a gazillion ways to make money online.  It’s putting my time and energy in the right place and learning the right things that are a struggle.  I feel like I get distracted and lose time getting to my end result.  Thankfully, I’ve learned alot of neat things, but still need to put many of them into practice.

5.  I have no idea what’s happening on American Idol.

6.  In case you didn’t hear, all World Series games will begin at 7:57 pm this year.  Finally, Bud Selig makes a sane decision and I won’t have to celebrate quietly when one of my teams wins it all.  Both Red Sox victories were enjoyed alone after midnight and I had to be quiet.  Red Sox and Phillies have won 3 of the last 5.  I hope to see that trend continue.

7.  Found the site, keepvid.com, last week.  It allows you to download youtube and other videos to your computer.  It’s already helped with getting videos for worship as I can import the downloaded vids right into propresenter.  Any other programs I need to be checking out?

8.  I’m off to lunch with my friend, Jared Bell.  I’m excited about what God is doing in his life and ministry.  We are gonna solve the world’s political problems and plan the camp games.

Just been gmail chatting-is that what it’s called-with my boy Tim Kirkpatrick in Austrailia.  I am excited for his adventure there and hope to partner with him for missions trips and the 2011 International Wesleyan Youth Convention.  Lindsay Cameron, if you’re listening, consider this my nomination for Tim to be National Youth President.  Here’s what is up:

1.  Went to a FHTM event in Charlotte this weekend where the company founder spoke.  Got a picture with him and he is a multi-millionaire who actually got my name right.  It was an amazing experience.  He kept saying that the business is not a sit on your fanny deal, but you have to work at it.  The only difference is now you are working your own field instead of someone else’s.  The best thing about this whole business thing has been reconnecting with my childhood buddy, Alan McAlister.  If we could find our Rednecks in Florida video, we would be rich.  The opening scence involved a newspaper, a bathroom, and bass tournament results.

2.  Putting the finishing touches on my roundtable topic for FUEL in Charlotte this weekend.  Get to hang with F. Matt Rhodes and other youth pastors from the south.  Also gonna be working on some Love/Mercy stuff.  As unofficial entertainment director, I have already procured our Thursday night activity and it’s a midnight showing of Star Trek.  Best time ever was in Orlando in the church van singing the blues with B. Hill and Matty Lee.  That was a great night and we met Domique Wilkens and Pervis Ellison.  The best times are always unplanned.

3.  Excited to start a new series at youth tomorrow night, “Life Between the Gutters.”  Can I just say I was disappointed to find out that this two-handed bowler dude is not going granny style?  He’s bowling regularly but with two hands.  Bowl a perfect game granny style and then you can be on Sportscenter.

4.  We have more than twice as many teens going to youth camp than we did last year!  Still got a few to sign up so I’m hoping for at least 20.

5.  My mission trip plans keep falling like flies.  We are on Plan E right now.

6.  Karen sold her first wedding coupon books today!

7.  Hey, let’s try to spread out the Red Sox-Yankees games next year!  They just played a series last week.  Sorry Yankee Fans, but the new stadium will be your undoing.  Ya’ll have as many empty seats as the Marlins(who have 25% the payroll but a much better record).  ARod will return soon, but he will be the “butt” of jokes the rest of his career.  Guess his passing Bonds won’t be so celebrated now will it?  Come on, Pujois!

8.  That’s it.  8 is my limit tonight.  Ghosts of Girlfriends past is good.  I cried.  The last movie I didn’t cry at was Wolverine, but that doesn’t count.  I’m actually crying now.  There was a Kodak commercial.
