Putrified brains

Youtube can be pretty kewl, you can find just about anything if you know how to look (though how Steve Perry finds it, I'll have to wait another 20yrs to understand).
Not that you can find everything, but alot of things., though most of the guys teaching quality martial arts aren't posting vids for just anyone, expecially some fool with a modem.

But there's a dark side. Yes, I'm talking about the putrification of our children's brains.
Cole's a reasonably bright kid. Loves computer games but can put on the gloves and throwdown with just about anyone. GPA of 4.0 (yeah, I am proud, so?).

But I could only shake my head at what the kids at school are turning him on to these days.......

WARNING: only watch once. I am not responsible if this burns into your memory in a loop.

Now, to set your brain straight, here's some real stimulating viewing with the Bobbe Edmonds highbrow stamp of approval.

And then some

It actually got pretty nasty weather-wise Saturday night. The snow kept coming down and a good 25mph wind. Nice winter storm, roads were terrible that night. Plenty of work created for the body shops.

Sunday morning arrived crisp and bright. Beautiful day for riding! Easily 10-12" of powder in places.

When you wish upon a star

Makes a difference where you are.

It got ups to 59 degrees a few weeks ago, pretty much melted everything. Felt like spring and everything that goes with it.
But since then it's just been miserably cold. Everyone comments on how are you holding up with the weather.

Me? I keep telling them I want a few more heavy snow storms so we can get some more riding in.

Supposed to get 2- 6" today!

Got 2" in one hour already.

Gator roll

Cole had Wrestling Individual Conference finals on Friday. Ended up with Third in the conference for his weight. Not too shabby. Won 3 out of 4 and lost to a very experienced opponent 8-4. What was exciting was to see all the improvement and his increased awareness of what was happening, how to respond to a bad situation and use one to set up a counter. Just when I thought he was caught in a bad spot, he would turn it and you realized he had it planned out.
There's a nice gator roll for control at :12. You don't see to many gator rolls in high school.

He's being pulled up to varsity again Wednesday for District team finals so they can use his 4.0 grade point on the team average to submit for acedemic team awards. That'll work.
At this pace I could see him being a pretty solid wrestler by his senior year.

You know, you just don't know if some of these are legit answers.

Child Support Agency Forms

The following are all replies that Dallas women have written
on Child Support Agency forms in the section for listing
fathers' name details.

1. Regarding the identity of the father of my twins, child A
was fathered by Jim Munson. I am unsure as to the identity of
the father of child B, but I believe that he was conceived on
the same night.

2. I am unsure as to the identity of the father of my child
as I was being sick out of a window when taken unexpectedly
from behind. I can provide you with a list of names of men
that I think were at the party if this helps.

3. I do not know the name of the father of my little girl.
She was conceived at a party at 3600 Grand Avenue where I
had unprotected sex with a man I met that night. I do remember
that the sex was so good that I fainted. If you do manage to
track down the father, can you send me his phone number?

4. I don't know the identity of the father of my daughter.
He drives a BMW that now has a hole made by my stiletto in
one of the door panels. Perhaps you can contact BMW service
stations in this area and see if he's had It replaced.

5. I have never had sex with a man. I am awaiting a letter
from the Pope confirming that my son's conception was im-
maculate and that he is Christ risen again.

6. I cannot tell you the name of child A's dad as he informs
me that to do so would blow his cover and that would have
cataclysmic implications for the economy. I am torn between
doing right by you and right by the country. Please advise.

7. I do not know who the father of my child was as all blacks
look The same to me.

8. Peter Smith is the father of child A. If you do catch up
with him, can you ask him what he did with my AC/DC CDs?

9. From the dates it seems that my daughter was conceived at
Disney World; maybe it really is the Magic Kingdom.

10. So much about that night is a blur. The only thing that
I remember for sure is Delia Smith did a program about eggs
earlier in the evening. If I'd have stayed in and watched
more TV rather than going to the party at 146 Miller Drive,
mine might have remained
