New Video..

This new video is truly inspiring. We all have stress that seems to take over our happiness and sanity at times. However, this father and son team put everything into perspective. Ask yourself: Would you compete in a triathalon if you knew it would give your child just a moment of happiness? You can find the video at the bottom of the blog.

Paradise Lost

After watching "Brother's Keeper" I had to see this documentary because it's done by the same guys. This one is about the three little boys killed and mutilated in the early 90's. Their accused killers are the three misfits of the town. Very interesting perspective on how media affects trials and jurys. Heath and I have different opinions about who really committed this crime. Be warned: very graphic!! There is actually a site you can go to and donate money to the wife of one of these convicted murders. I would be interested to hear what other people think about this:

Dallas, Texas (Go Cowboys!)

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. My Mom and I took a trip to Dallas to do some shopping for the store. It was nice to get away but even better- we got to come home. I didn't really get a lot of pictures because there wasn't a whole lot to get pictures of. Notice here that these geese are standing on GREEN lawn: no snow!!
I'm aware of how completely shallow this is but, one of my favorite shows on T.V. is the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders (CMT). I don't know why: I just love it. So, our hotel ended up being like ten minutes from the stadium and to my dismay- it's closed for construction. Oh by the way- stupid Jessica Simpson is the ONLY reason the Cowboys didn't make the Superbowl this year. Just another thing to add to the list of "Reasons I don't like Jessica Simpson."

So, I know that there are people that HATE Michael Moore. I understand. He has a real flare for showing only one side of a story or problem. However, I think the great thing about him is he actually asks questions and doesn't just assume things are all right. Personally- I thought this one was a bit overdone.

..Battle at Krueger..

OK friends- I had to post a new video because it was really eye-opening... It is something I have never seen before in my life: which isn't really saying a lot, still. Warning: these are real animals doing what animals do: surviving. Kind of graphic, but watch it until the very end!!

Brother's Keeper

I saw this documentary last night. If you don't know anything about the Ward Brothers I think this is a must see for you. Very interesting and insightful. P.S. Be sure not to eat while watching this film. Also, an animal was harmed during the making of this movie.

The Winner

Congratulations to Barack Obama for winning the Iowa Caucus! It is no secret that I have been a fan of his from the beginning, now all he has to do is win the presidential election. I know a lot of you would disagree with me when it comes to Obama for a good candidate but you have to agree that he makes a better choice than Clinton.
