Logan, one of the twins, told me last night he wants to go see Superman Returns...and he's only 3. I want to see it, myself, being a life-long Superman fan. The only thing is, he's not heavy enough to hold the seat always flips up and traps him unless I hold it down.

New phone

My new phone...I had the same one for almost 5 years. I called it my "geek phone", since I had to tape the antenna on with LOTS of scotch tape. It's nothing fancy, but it's mine...mine, I tell ya!!

I must be bored, to find a picture of my phone and post it.

Future stars

My wife works with the wife of the local weather man in town, and all of our kids go to the same school. So, the weatherman took his daughter to a cooking class with my twins, and videotaped the class to use on the news. My wife made him a deal...if he showed the clip at 10 pm, she would watch his daughter this afternoon...he called it a no-brainer. His wife has a conference all week, so he was taking her to work. We taped the was a good 10-15 seconds of air time!! They were extremely cute.

Speaking of deals, the Spurs took another) forward, and traded him to the Milwaukee Bucks for a draft pick in 2007. That's okay, because they had traded for a shooting forward and a F/C a couple of days before. So, I smell another NBA Championship this coming season.

Entertainment Apathy

Okay....which do I care LEAST about? Moose, the dog who played "Eddie" on Frasier dying, Star Jones leaving the man hating nag-fest called "The View", or Charles Gibson moving from Good Morning, America to World News Tonight?

I never wanted to throw my TV out of the window so much since Katie Couric jumped ship, and everyone was acting like she was retiring (which wouldn't be a bad thing). But then again, I want to throw my TV out of the window every month or so.

New Not-so-Super Heroes

It seems that one of my twins, Logan, was saying something all weekend and we couldn't figure out what it was. It sounded like American Indian or something. It sounded like "KrimmonKin".

Then, as the boys were cruising in their tractors (yes, we're from a farming family), he jumped off, got in the classic super hero stance, and said, "THE CRIMSON CHIN!!!"

The Crimson Chin, for those of you without either Nickelodeon or children, is a superhero that appears sporadically on the Nick show "The Fairly Oddparents".

I SERIOUSLY need to rent some Batman and Superman videos for these boys to watch. Or turn off the TV.

New column

For those of you who don't know, I write a monthly column in my local newspaper. I don't get paid for it, but I do it because I like making people laugh.

I posted the link on--where else? The links page.

Jason the Elder

Just in case I don't post this weekend, I'll let you know now that I am being installed as an elder in my church. This is a humbling honor for me. So, I may have a picture or two to post next week.

The guy on the avatar is Martin Luther, since I can't use the official cross of the Luthern Church-Missouri Synod. And that is his symbol, the Luther Rose.

Here we go....

All right....I watched about 2 inutes of that new show "Master of Champions"...can anyone say "That's Incredible" without the old hosts? Oh, yeah, there's that re-make of "The Gong SHow" with David Hasselhoof and Brandy...didn't know Brandy was as far down on the star lst as Hasselhoff.. While I am at it, Discovery Channel has "Deadliest Catch", about crab fishermen in the Bering Sea. It's considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Now, though, they have "Lobstermen: Jeopardy at Sea". No, they don't play the game while lobstering. It's not as dangerous as crab fishing. Next thing you know, they'll come down here to the Gulf Coast and do "Shrimpers: Caution on the Whitecaps".
