Goodbye to 2007

Hi all,

 Well 2007 is almost over and it has been one exciting year.  I spent over a month in Lithuania and even spent 3 1/2 days in Paris, France.  My mom celebrated her 70th birthday.  Watching my kids grow up this year has been awesome. I am blessed with the life God has given.  Both my wife and kids are awesome and so is the rest of my family.  I also enjoy watching the new England patriots go undefeated during the regular season. 

 If I can encourage anyone with just one thing, it would be to get a bible and start going to a bible teaching church.  I guess that is two.   Spend next year in the Word reading, praying, and repenting.  Need a starting point start with the gospel of John and continue with Acts.  Oh, by the way take your time and meditate on God’s words.  It is so easy to breeze right through it.  Just ponder on it.  Also learn to repent more often.

Prediction for football and basketball will come in a later post.  I must make one thing clear.  The Lakers looking like a good playoff team but not a contender for the NBA Finals.   I do not think that they can make it past  the San Antonio Spurs.  I do think that they are playing a lot better than I thought.  My apologize for raggin on Kobe Bryant.  i will try better in 2008 to be kinder to him in my blogs? :> 

What are my plans for 2008?   Watch my post tomorrow.

The Amazing Race

Hey, I was flipping through channels and I saw the latest episode of the Amazing Race on CBS.  The person read out their next destination and it was Vilnius, Lithuania.  Wow, that was cool.    I can’t believe I was just there and now it is on the Amazing Race. 

After watching the entire episode I have some thoughts.  The first part of the episode, where the contestants became Lithuanian messengers, showed much of the old town area of Vilnius.  Although one the Lithuanian women who gave the contestants their task, mispronounced the name of the person they needed to locate. 

The second part of the episode where the contestants attend an authentic summer festival and must either count the pieces of wood on the fence or walk on stilts was funny.  I have never seen that during my trips to Lithuania.  Even my wife, who is from Lithuania never seen anything like that.  I believe they added that to make the show more entertaining.
