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:

Sergeant Edward Alexander Walker (US Marine Corps) received his Medal of Honor for his actions from June 20 – July 16, 1900, at Peking, China. His citation reads:

In the presence of the enemy during the battle of Peking, China, 20 June to 16 July 1900. Throughout this period, Walker distinguished himself by meritorious conduct.

Private Frank O. Walker (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on January 18, 1900, near Taal, Luzon, Philippine Islands. His citation reads:

Under heavy fire of the enemy he rescued a dying comrade who was sinking beneath the water.

Private James C. Walker (US Army) received his Medal of Honor for his actions on November 25, 1863, at Missionary Ridge, Tennessee. His citation reads:

After 2 color bearers had fallen, seized the flag and carried it forward, assisting in the capture of a battery. Shortly thereafter he captured the flag of the 41st Alabama and the color bearer.

I would like to wish my Aunt Yvonne a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope she has a GREAT day! As you know, I am her favorite child and this was proven a few years ago when she made me a blanket of many colors (my 4 favorite colors, to be exact). Growing up, we (Mom and I) would go over to Mt. Pleasant for a haircut and then head down the road to visit Aunt Yvonne and Louis (and Susan, Alan and Uncle George if he was home). Those visits, along with the many times I spent the night at their house, are some of the best memories I have from my childhood.

For those of you who have been asking how my weight loss is going… I started at 249 and ended the month of January at 232. So far, so good… but I still have a long way to go.
