Superbowl is set

Well I guess I was wrong.  I was sure Green Bay was going to beat the New York Giants.  At least New England beat San Diego.  I could honestly careless for either team.  I am not a Giants fan but I always like going for the underdog.  The Giants will be a huge underdog.  Everyone wants New England to win the Superbowl so they will have their perfect season.  To be honest, I want them to win the Superbowl just for that but I would mind seeing the Giants pull off an unthinkable upset.  Well I wait until the Friday before the Superbowl to see my pick.  Right now, I am leaning towards New England.

Activities with Toddlers in Southern California – Gull Wings Children’s Museum

Hi all,

 I love the weekend.  It not just two days off work, although I went to work for about 4 1/2 hours today, but it is two whole days to hang with my wife and two kids.  I have a son who is roughly 3 1/2 years old and a daughter a little over a  1 1/2 years old.  I love the time I get to spend with them at the parks and around the house but too often it seems my wife and I go stir crazy with the kids at home.  This is a series I plan to include in my blog in 2008.  Keep an eye out for updates.

——   Gull Wings Children’s Museum –  Oxnard, Ca ——————————————————-

Saturday after I came back home from work, it was time for a trip to a local children’s museum.  The plan was to meet up with some friends there.  We ran a little late due to some traffic caused by an accident on the freeway.  That’s the norm for Southern California although I tend to see more accidents on the weekdays than the weekends.  Our friends had left before we got there but I can understand because this children’s museum was quite small.

The name of the museum is Gull Wings Children’s Museumin Oxnard.   Admission to the museum is $4.00 for ages two and up.  The museum is rather small with a few exhibits.   My kids seem to have fun but both my wife and I did not like it.  It was rather basic and not too impressive and many of the exhibts seemed rundown and dirty. It is a very low budget place but what should I expect for $4.00 a person.   I would  not recommend it to anyone else or go there again.   

NFL Divisional Championship Predictions

The big games are here.  I am a little surprise with both San Diego and New York Giants.  I expected both Green Bay and New England.  Watch out on Sunday!  I believe both games will be a blowout. 

Green Bay is going to easily beat New York Giants.  Brett Farve will pick apart the New York Giant defense.  There are too many holes in the defense.  Final Score : Green Bay 35  New York Giants 17.

I believe New England might have a little problem with San Diego.  I am worried about the windy weather forecast for Sunday’s game.  I believe the defense will force San Diego into some turnovers.  I believe the running game of San Diego will give New England some trouble.  Watch out for MVP Tom Brady to go nuts in the second half of the game.  New England’s defense will step it up and hold San Diego.  Final Score New England 31  San Diego 10.

Let me here what you think.

Update from Riyadh: Bitter Cold,
Rain, Wind and Cloudy Skies
Accompanied President Bush’s
‘Red Carpet’ Ceremonies in the
Middle East – Bill Koenig

When President Bush visited with the Israelis, there were mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 50s. However, when he was received by the Arab leaders, there was bitter cold, rain and winds that affected most of his “red-carpet welcome” ceremonies and numerous other activities.

Israel and Middle East Leaders

Wednesday, January 9:

President Bush arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, to a red-carpet welcome during mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the high 50s.

Thursday, January 10:

President Bush’s travel plans to get to his meeting in Ramallah with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas were thwarted by a very rare London-style fog in Jerusalem and in Ramallah. Rather than taking Marine One for a 15-minute helicopter ride, he was forced to take a 45-minute ride in his 45-car-and-SUV security caravan.

Once in Ramallah, where he received a red carpet welcome by President Mahmoud Abbas, the temperature was in the low to mid-20s, windy and cloudy. When the press briefing was completed, the sun came out.

Friday, January 11:

President Bush departed Israel on a very sunny and beautiful day in Israel after touring Yad Vashem and Capernaum. The temperature was in the 50s.

Friday, January 11:

President Bush received a red-carpet welcome from the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah in Kuwait as the thermostat continued dropping. Prior to his departure the next day the weather was extremely cold.

Light snow fell in Baghdad early on Friday in what weather officials said was the first time in about a 100 years. Temperatures plunged to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (zero degrees Centigrade) and even colder.

Saturday, January 12:

President Bush received a red-carpet welcome from Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa at his palace in Manama, Bahrain, during a very cold and windy day.

Sunday, January 13:

President Bush received a red-carpet welcome from President Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, during a rainy and dreary day.

Monday, January 14:

President Bush received a red-carpet welcome from King Abdullah at the international airport in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in the midst of bitter cold, high winds and temperatures in the low 20s. The welcome ceremony was rapidly moved inside after President Bush deplaned from Air Force One and the Saudi band played the US and Saudi national anthems.

Tuesday, January 15:

President Bush awoke to snow flurries in Riyadh. He traveled to King Abdullah’s ranch with temperatures in the high 30s and wind. The overnight temperature is forecast for 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degrees Celsius).

Additional records and reports during President Bush’s Middle East visit:

  • There was snow in Baghdad for the first time in 100 years.
  • There were snow flurries in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
  • Lebanon’s temperatures dropped below freezing levels across the country, including the coast.
  • Freezing cold brought life to a standstill in Lebanese villages, while municipalities struggled to clear snow from roads.
  • In the Bekaa Valley of Syria, the temperature dropped to levels not witnessed since the 1960s.

    Wow, we can either loook at these events as radom acts of mother nature or warning from Almighty God himself.  The US should give up the idea of creating a two state solution in Israel. 

    Intersting Article _ George Bush’s Trip to Jerusalem

    I found this article on WWW.WATCH.org.  This is very interesting in regards to the date in which Geoegre Bush arrive in Jerusalem and what happen 3400 years to the day.  Thanks to Bill Koenig.

    Update from Jerusalem:
    The 3400 Year Biblical Connection
    to President Bush’s Arrival in
    Israel on the Jewish Calendar
    Date – Shevat 1

    Note from Bill:

    The following is from Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, Puyallup, Washington. There is an incredible biblical connection to President Bush’s arrival date in Israel and a 3400 year old event.

    —–

    President Bush has come to Israel on a very significant date to divide the land!

    If you look at the Hebrew Calendar Tuesday – Wednesday, Jan 8-9, 2008, sunset to sunset, was a New Moon, which is very significant on the biblical calendar. It was the date of Shevat 1. The first day of the 11th month. The New Moon is always sanctified or set apart. But look at the biblical significance of it not only being just the first of any particular month, but what happened on this very day, the first day of the 11th month, 3400 yrs ago:

    Deuteronomy 1:3,8 And it happened, in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses spoke to the sons of Israel according to all that God had commanded him concerning them; Behold, I have set before you the land; go in and possess the land which the LORD has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to them and to their seed after them.

    It just so happens, this is not only just the first day of the eleventh month, but it is also in the fortieth year since Jerusalem recaptured in 1967!!

    Also read Zechariah 1:7-21 concerning January 31st this year is the 24th day of Shevat.

    Zechariah 1:7-21: Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be. And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest. Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words. So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem. Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. And the LORD shewed me four carpenters. Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

    Read all of Zechariah concerning Jerusalem and the nations.

    We know from:

    Matthew 5:35 Jerusalem is the city of the Great King. (Yeshua is the Great King of the Jews and Jerusalem.)

    2 Chronicles 6:6 But I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name might be there;

    then look at:

    Zechariah 3:2 The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! …”

    New A-Team Movie

    I wonder what they will do for a story?

    Here’s the intro from the A-Team TV series.
