We are in Houston and Jack is amazing. Such a good and beautiful baby. There house is really nice. Sherry and I are so jealous. I can't wait until we get our own house. We had a good breakfast this morning... and are about to go to hit the town, since Shelley showed up this morning. We will be going home on Tuesday.
That is about all I can to this article. I pray for a quick end to this. It is disgustion on so many levels to read about people being forced to fight when they know they will die.
Sherry and I were talking about the houses that I grew up in. As you may or may not know I have found that my memory of childhood has been hard to recall. Not sure if I have blocked it out or too much drinking in college has killed too many brain cells... but it is a rare treasure when I can remember things.
This morning we were talking about Londonberry Road. Anyone remember the address? Or the other house we use to live in... the one with the jackass next door neighbors and the driveway I use to crash into the garage on my green machine with? I was talking this morning about the boys in the neighborhood that I think were brothers that taught me how to flick the bird and some other skills that were used to get me in lots of trouble when I would go home and show Mom what I learned.
Didn't they also try to burn down our house once? Any details you guys can share on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Just use the comment link below to add details.
I added the functionality to comment on any posts on this site, so please use it... cause I am curious what you have to say.
So Cruel... it's almost funny
Apparently... the Moroccan government is trying to support the US Army by providing monkeys that are trained to blow up land mines. My question is how do you train a monkey to do that?
The new John Ira Tureman
This is Shawn and Regina's 3 week old son that Sherry and I are going to visit this weekend in Houston, he is pretty damn cute, don't ya think?

Celebration of days
I went looking for a days alive calculator today... and found an interesting poem I felt like putting up here...
We can count up to ten, we can count to a hundred
and these are two numbers that we understand
And we can take one, multiply by the other,
and in this way get ourselves up to a grand
But much more than that and it starts to lose meaning
the mind just can't feel the big numbers it knows
I guess it's just that we get too far away from
our trusty friend old Mister Fingers and Toes
And so we use years when we count up our birthdays
but then there's the problem of having so few
and really it's days we have, that's what we're spending
and every day we get one brand spanking new
So don't let too many days spin off uncounted
This year thing is nonsense, a terrible trap
We hope that each one of your days will be happy
except that there's bound to be some filled with crap
from The Amazing Days Alive Calculator results page.
(I had trouble getting it to work, and had to reload it several times to get the results or to even show up)
Thanks to Walzer for enlightening me on the science of the lost art of Booty Calling. Hope you are having fun back in college Wiggidy. Looks like you are not letting the "trees get in the way of the forest" your second time around.
I talked to the doctor yesterday and he said everything was fine. I had an EKG done and it didn't show anything except for a sinus arrhythmia, which is not a big deal. Similar to the fingerprint of the heart, everyone one has different characteristics.
He said I do not have heart disease, and as long as the "flub flub" that I have been feeling when I lay down is only during resting periods that it is ok... it would be much more troubleing if it happend while playing soccer or running. He said I could stand to lose a few pounds (who can't), but I plan on trying even harder, I am down 10 pounds since the beginning of the year.
He also stated that I am not doing anything wrong, and that staying away from cigarettes is important.
Just Another Day
Everything went great last night. Had 9 people at Sherry's birthday celebration. She racked up. I never get that many presents. But anyway... several people said it looked like a pottery barn advertisement, which it basically was, since we hadn't really had a chance to use all of our stuff since the wedding. Bells was well behaved and only two people had to leave because of cat allergies. Who know so many people were allergic!??!
Just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my lovely wife and my wonderful mother. (Kinda weird that they have the same birthday, and I am sure that Freud could have a field day with it, but I don't like to get into that). Mom and Don just got back from a pilgrimage out west with their good friends. Sherry and I hope to take a trip with them soon. Funny how things change, in high school, those thoughts would never have entered my mind. But now I find myself missing family and wanting to spend more and more time with them.
We are going to have some friends over for dinner tonight to celebrate Sherry's birth a quarter century ago.
Looks like poor planning and lack of technology has bitten us in the ass. Since I wasn't able to confirm our plans to go to the river house until last night at 11 pm none of the friends can make it. I should have just been confident that it was going to happen in the first place, and not been so wishy-washy. So we are going to the mall instead, it is what girls and gay boys want anyway.
Birthday party - river house syle
We are going to my parent's river house tommorrow with some friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. It is quite a relaxing place and I am looking forward to it. She received the stationary from Mom and Don, and the yoga top from Sarah and Heidi. Still waiting on presents from Leigh and Mandy ;)
Have a heart
I tried to go to the doctor today, since I have a family history of weak hearts, and I have been feeling wierd when laying down at night to sleep. I was diagnosed a year ago with IRRRB (Incomplete Right Bundle Branch Block), which is by it self no big deal, but need to keep an eye on it, since both of beebe3 and beebe2 died from heart attacks.
Stupid me had scheduled an appointment with the wrong doctor so I had to go find the doctor by going to his office and talking to the receptionist to get an appointment. So I am going to a cardiologist on Monday and my primary doctor on Tuesday, just for a check up.
Can't beat 5 beers for $5
Ok... so we are going the Ale House tonight. It is sort of a Thursday tradition. Last time we were there the bartender told us that no Ale House employee is allowed to drink at any Ale House even after hours due to some employee in Tampa getting drunk and shooting himself when he got home. Do you think he would have not shot himself if he had not gotten drunk at an Ale House?
Hottie with a need
My friend Sandra needs a man. She is intelligent, hot and swedish! Check her out and send her an email. (She has turned it off thanks to a gentleman caller)
The top 100 online games according to FHM (For Him Magizine). Most of these are flash games, but be careful... some of them are quite addictive.
At Georgia Tech, the 2nd (of 3) physics class was called Electromagnitism, E-mag for short. But since most people had to take it over (since you had to get a C or higher if you were an engineering major, which I was not luckily), it became known as Re-mag.
Maybe if this site were around during the past it would have been a whole lot more interesting... Britney does physics.
I have been wanting to go back to the camp I went to as a kid. It is in the mountains between the Carolinas and it is beautiful. They have a family camp that I would like to take my whole family to, since we went twice when I was younger.
I have put a link to my friend's photo website. He has secured a high quality camera and happens to have a really good eye for photography. He is willing to sell them for your personal gallary if you are interested. The photos are hosted at pbase.
Funniest thing I have seen in a while... A Guide to Safety in Wartime
Where I play Chess
Just to let you know of a good game site I have been using lately to play chess... itsyourturn.com. The main reason I like it is because you can play at your leisure and it has frequent tournaments, which I have been curious to try just to see if I was any good compared to other players who were confident enough to play in a tournament.
The new reality show
I am currently watching the "war" with Iraq unfold, and amazed at the real-time feeds we are getting from the naval ships. I just saw some tomahawk missles that had been fired less than an hour before. Quite Crazy. Wonder which would win the ratings war... Joe Millionaire or CNN's war coverage?
