If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy. Leave comments if you want and don’t be afraid to publicly follow me.

Know Your Medal of Honor Recipients:

Private John Tweedale (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions from December 31, 1862 – January 1, 1863, at Stone River, Tennessee. His citation reads:

Gallantry in action.

Corporal Voltaire P. Twombly (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on February 15, 1862, at Fort Donelson, Tennessee. His citation reads:

Took the colors after 3 of the color guard had fallen, and although most instantly knocked down by a spent ball, immediately arose and bore the colors to the end of the engagement.

Corporal George William Tyrrell (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on May 14, 1864, at Resaca, Georgia. His citation reads:

Capture of flag.

I would like to wish my brother-in-law Brent a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!! I can honestly say… of all the men my sister has married, Brent is my favorite. I hope he has a GREAT birthday!

Mary Ruth has her first basketball game today… hopefully The Wife won’t get tossed for yelling at the refs.

Today is one of the best days of the college football season… Army/Navy. Back at the end of 2004, Sonny and I decided to pick sides in this great match-up. At the time, Navy had just won the game for the 3rd time in a row bringing the series record to 49-49-7. Since that time, Navy has won every game in the series to take a 59-49-7 lead. Army hasn’t won this game since 2001. It’s actually at the point now that I feel kind of bad for them. Not so bad, however, that I want them to win…
