Merry Christmas 2008

Isaiah 7:14 (King James Version)

 14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.


I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season. I encourage everyone to take time today and reflect on the precious gift we received from God., His only begotten Son. And then reflect on the wonderful gift Jesus gives to each of us. Salvation to all who ask.  Have a wonderful Christmas!

Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats Ho

Imagine Brad Pitt as Lion-o, Vin Disel as Panthro, Hugh Jackman as Tigra. Then check out this (fake) Trailer for a Thundercats Live action movie. Also featured are Gigi Edgley (Chiana from Farscape) as Cheetara and Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara (of Spy Kids fame) as Wileykit and Wileykat.

In Memoriam: Majel Barrett Roddenberry


Majel Roddenberry passed away today. While every trekker knows of her work in ST:TOS, ST:TNG, ST:DS9, ST:V, she was also involved in getting other Roddenberry projects to television. And she was genuinely a nice lady. I had the privilege of meeting and talking to her in person a few years back when she was the guest of honor at the Gen Con Game Fair. She walked right up to us while we were siting in the atrium of the Hyatt and asked us about the game we were playing. We talked for several minutes before she moved on. Very friendly. 

The story says she passed away from leukemia.  Please pray for her family.

What I Did On My Summer Hiatus

Well most of what I did was participate in our annual Vacation Bible School. We split the kids up into teams and each team was color coded. Here you see the team flags green, red, yellow, blue, orange and purple.
I think one of the favorite activities was eating. Here you see people lined up at the food stand.
The Blue Team prepares for action!
The Spirit of Competition was thick in the air
If we could only bottle the energy the kids have!
But not everything took place in the hot summer sun
We had plenty of skits in the air conditioned Fellowship Hall
The last day we did something special and arranged for a "blow up amusement park"
We also used part of the property to set up a paintball range. A big hit with the teens.
The girls play "Super Volley Ball".
They worked together much better than the guys.
The Green Team teens relax and chow down.
While VBS was a day shorter this year, we still managed to do more, holding it all day instead of just in the late afternoon like previous years. It certainly drained me.
But we are already planning for next year!

Pay No Attention to the Embedded Object Below

For my friends and those who supported me through NaNoWriMo. No. I do not know when I will get around to killing you. You cannot rush these things. They take time.
