Geeking out

For your viewing pleasure:

All I can say is: Scotty, beam me to 05/08/09. Nuff sed.


Recently Jamie's cousin Michelle from Arizona emailed us to give us a challenge: To weigh ourselves, then compete a'la "The Biggest Loser" in a contest to see who can lose the most weight (in percentage of original body weight) by the time we meet next summer in Tubac, Arizona for the semiannual Zwemke family reunion. We all weighed ourselves yesterday to start off the contest. I'm too much of a gentleman to reveal the ladies' weights, but I will be posting my weight loss results as we weigh in each week, and reveal the winner next summer.

Week: 1
Starting weight: 252 lbs
Weight lost this week: 0 lbs
% Weight Lost this week: 0%
Total weight lost: 0 lbs
% Total Weight lost: 0%

Tune in each week for updates...the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat!

We did it!

For those who don't already know, who happen to read this blog from time to time....we just signed a contract on our new home yesterday. Here's a picture of the house:We're excited, and starting the loan application process, and planning for the move. We close on December 29th, and we'll move in in early January. As usual, stay tuned for more news as it happens.

Welcome to the Obama Nation

"It's time for a change!" ... to WHAT, exactly?

"Yes we can!" ...do WHAT, exactly?

That, of course, remains to be seen. I know that I will be watching our president-elect closely to see exactly how his administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress plan to turn those vague campaign slogans into policy, and law.

Although noone can know a man's heart, I take some small comfort in the hope that Mr. Obama's professed faith will allow him to be open to the urgings of the Holy Spirit to do the right thing for all Americans, and not just what the left wing agenda says he should do.

Pray for this country, its leadership, and its people. I know I will. In the meantime, remember:

God is in control
Though godless men conspire
His will unfolds
though mortal minds are sometimes left to doubt
His ways are higher than our ways
So, even through the fire
Take heart and know
God is in control
