A New Year

Well, I did make it back to DC - although by my Yahoo group, you'd never know it! My world wind tour to Jacktown was awesome! Got to see many of our friends, spent time with family, bunked at my parents house for the first time since moving out in 1995! That was nice. Unfortunately, Kim and Georgia weren't with me and I definitely missed having them around.

Speaking of Georgia...wow, has she grown! I realized the most recent pics of her on this group was her turning 2! Seems light years since July 30, of 2006!

Georgia's doing well at daycare which is at Kim's work. Yeah, another update...Kim's working at the US Agriculture Department in the Office of Technology Transfer as a Program Support Assistant. Whew! It's the government's way of calling her an assistant office manager by my definition of her job duties. The daycare is onsite - which is a blessing.

Nothing dramatic to update. We survived the holidays. Georgia still isn't so keen on tearing into wrapping paper...but I'm sure that will change. :)

We've also seen a rather brutal winter. The last month has had maybe one day over 40 degrees. On Valentine's Day we got a one-two punch of snow and a lot of sleet, which melded together into some major ice that if untreated or plowed before getting too solid, will just about need a jackhammer to move. :)

Plus, all this fun deep freeze and dry indoor air and whoknowswhat has offered Georgia and I a few upper respiratory infections. Seems she inherited my sinus troubles. :(

Was ordained as a deacon at our church, Faith Baptist, near the end of January. Never pictured myself serving in that role but I welcome how the Lord will use me in that capacity.

Otherwise, we have a new GM at W*USA 9 as of a couple weeks ago and he's working out exceptionally well. It's a new chapter here.

As always, more to come...

I Can Honestly Say Jon Is My Best Friend

At the beginning of this year, these were Kate Gosselin's words in an interview with Today's Christian Woman: "I can honestly say Jon is my best friend."

Kate also says, "When the babies were born, I was well aware that our marriage could crumble. It was close to doing so at times. But we survived that first year. And then the second one. And then each year after that. Even though the issues have changed, it's never gotten easier.
"But Jon and I are more determined than ever that we're in this together. We've told our kids many times that we're always going to be a family. There are no other options. Sure, Jon and I take our stress out on each other, and no, that's not always good or healthy. But we work hard as a team every day."

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?

This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post?

This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.


Die Rush Limbaugh!

On the Eve of New Year's Eve, Rush Limbaugh is rushed to a Hawaii hospital with chest pains. News reports mention his condition as "serious" but little information is available. Hours later, it's reported that he's "resting comfortably" at the hospital.

The hours in between paint a pathetic picture of our country:

New York Daily News described Limbaugh as a "radio loudmouth" and a "right-wing talk show host." The article also mentions that Rush's "nemesis" President Obama and "target of Limbaugh's bile" Nancy Pelosi were also vacationing in Hawaii this week.
