Don't forget "I will continue to look at the glass half empty."

Dude. Negativity helps no one.

At least 3 of the 10 can be considered positive, maybe more.

And the glass is neither half empty nor is it half full. It is, however, twice the size needed to accomplish its task. :)

1. What's a Duncan and who hunts them? I really don't think we need any more hunters after Cheney's incident.
2. Nothing we can change.
3. I don't know, something along the lines of SARS or bird flu will resurface.
4. I'll take Sports for $400 please, Frigga.
5. Yeah, I tried throwing a party for myself once though, didn't fare well. (how would you like to be the kind of guy who has to try to throw a party for himself?)
6. She's dating.
7. It'll take a new job and a budget.
8. Yeah, well, I know people who say they try to lose weight and never do, so we'll have to see.
9. Explained Fossett on your blog.
10. I think we have three sets now, a basic set from the wedding registry, and then last year for Christmas or my birthday I received a twin set including an original antique-style set and a modern set. The modern set has markers like a cell phone, a McDonald's fries box, and a Starbucks coffee cup. :)

Hmmmm....
1. Duncan Hunter doesn't have the name recognition, but would make a great president. He's my Congressman and has done an awesome job. http://www.gohunter08.com/
5. My birthday is 2 days before Christmas. As a child I never once, not a single year, had a sucessful party, so sorry. Now, if you're birthday is NOT around Christmas, I might have some tips for you ;-)

Michael,

I hope 2008 is much better for you than 2007 - I know you've been thru some rough times, but know that God has a plan for your life - Jeremiah 29:11. I have been where you are - the depression and all - and I lived to say it WILL pass! TRUST GOD. He's got your back.

Blessings,

Bubba's Sis
