A Feeble Blog Attempt

Every weekday morning I sit before my computer trying to decide whether to blog or not. Right now I am going through a desert period where ideas just don't come. Or maybe it's more like they don't seem too relevant these days. I used to blog about sports every so often, but that just seems empty. Politics? It's a joke. Pretty much all I can think to write about is Jenny and heaven.

So here is a half-hearted try.

Oh, good. Another Lakers-Celtics final. These teams have won over half of the NBA championships in history. Why even have a regular season?

Things sure appear to be headed for a war in the Middle East. I pray that will not happen.

I used to work for the company that was bought out by BP (Amoco Oil). Amoco had a great safety and work record. BP can't say that. They have had fatalities at the very refinery I worked at. And this oil spill is a complete embarrassment. I am all for off-shore drilling, but how about let's have plans in place for when something goes wrong.

I am not saying that the Obama administration SHOULD be held liable for its handing of this crisis, but I am wondering how the media would be spinning it if Bush were still president.

Oh, well. There is my feeble attempt at blogging today.

1. One of my teachers at Hardings called the NBA "Not Basketball Anyway".
2. I never knew there was peace in the middle east.
3. The fact that the spill hasn't been plugged yet is ridiculous! We can raise the Titanic, but we can't plug a hole?
4. The Media would be like buzzards on a carcass if this were Bush. The double-standard is at an all time high.

Welcome home!!!

I'm only interested in the Lakers-Celtics series because I don't pay attention to the regular season for pro basketball. I doubt I'll see a whole game of this series either.

I'm one of those wacky folks who is opposed to off-shore drilling. I think people need to be coming up with other forms of energy and as long as we can rely on oil, we will until it's all used up. Along with that, it has become painfully obvious that no one has a clue how to solve a problem such as this one when it pops up. I rather ban anything that leaves the environment for my kids in this condition. There are smart people out there who can come up with better alternatives but the world is too driven by doing the easy thing to make a buck.

I understand feebele attempts at blogging and I continue to pray for you and your family. Thank you for still communicating even when you feel it isn't what you want to do.

Yes. It boggles my mind that they haven't figured out a way to deal with that oil.

I, too, am in favor of alternative energy, namely natural gas, wind, solar and nuclear. But the economics of crude are still cheaper and easier. If history is any guide, humanity will substitute another energy source before all the crude oil is consumed. I am a peak oil proponent.

Having not followed any NBA this season, yeah, it should be interesting to see if Magic and Kareem can put it to Bird and McHale... oh, wait a minute...:)
