One of my favorite college coaches has passed away. Godspeed, Johnny Orr!
On to the World Series!
I was asked to post this here, and get some comments about it from the throngs of (3-4) readers here.
I thought it was a very fair piece, with some good information. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Another link, in case the picture itself doesn’t work:
Lots of riders going in to DC for the rally today. They are there to keep an eye on the “Million Muslim March” that is going on at the same time.
I have a patio, so naturally I have lots of plants. Here is a few pictures:
Spider plants. I divided this at the beginning of summer, and should have gone with 3 pots.
This was sent to me in email. I have seen credit given to a Dallas paper for it, but I’m not sure of the origin.
I just wanted to share with you all that out of a horrible tragedy we were blessed by so many people. Chris was Derek’s teammate through 10 years of training and battle. They both suffer/suffered from PTSD to some extent and took great care of each other because of it. 2006 in Ramadi was horrible for young men that never had any more aggressive physical contact with another human than on a Texas football field. They lost many friends. Chris became the armed services number #1 sniper of all time. Not something he was happy about, other than the fact that in so doing, he saved a lot of American lives. Three years ago, his wife Taya asked him to leave the SEAL teams as he had a huge bounty on his head by Al Qaeda. He did and wrote the book The American Sniper. 100% of the proceeds from the book went to two of the SEAL families who had lost their sons in Iraq . That was the guy Chris was. He formed a company in Dallas to train military, police and I think firemen as far as protecting themselves in difficult situations. He also formed a foundation to work with military people suffering from PTSD. Chris was a giver not a taker. He along with a friend and neighbor, Chad Littlefield, were murdered trying to help a young man that had served 6 months in Iraq and claiming to have PTSD.
Sad news, as Margaret Thatcher has passed away. She was one of the world’s great politicians, bring Great Britain back onto the forefront of the world’s countries. She dragged Great Britain back to the right, and consequently back to prosperity. And she did it being positive.
