Thursday's Thoughts

I think she should double dog dare him.









  • A group of peoples lives intersect as they travel the country competing in karaoke contests starring; Paul Giamatti, Gwyneth Paltrow, Huey Lewis and Andre Braugher . If that sounds like a lame movie synopsis, put that thinking behind you and watch Duets. Here's Gwyneth covering Bette Davis Eyes and Andre Braugher doing the prettiest acapella version of Freebird you've ever heard. I know- I've given you a tension headache from rolling your eyes. Work with me on this and give it a try.


  • Just returned from new hire processing for my new job. I'm excited about it. Interestingly, after applying and doing well in the interview and passing initial checks etc. they took a pass on me and hired two other nurses. It took a month for them to get chewed up and spit out and I was offered one of the the positions. My patient base will be refugees, prisoners, homeless and the poor.


  • Many good stories are anticipated- so tune in next week- the same bat time- the same bat channel.


  • It's raining!


  • Crud, it stopped.


  • No, I'm not joking.

Hope the new job works out for ya.

Duets is watchable, but it gets kinda 'chickflicky'. Good date movie.

Sorta interesting concept. I liked Andre Braugher when he was on some doc show several years ago. Funny - he looks younger now than he did then.

Interesting new customer base you're signed up for. I wish you God's blessings, and I believe that He will do so for serving his flock (Matt 25:36, 40).

Where'd you see rain today? I was out all the way to Li-pan, never saw a drop. My route out there took me via Granbury and Thorp Spring, which looks like it done sprung - the creek there was dry as a bone.

BTW, it sure is nice that the frontage roads @ I-20 and S. Main are now open, but it seems like they'll never finish that Taj Majal of a bridge over the rail lines at Ft. Worth Hwy, east of Albertson's. Any idea what's going in to the old grocery store on S. Main, a few blocks south of Jack in the Box?

Rz- You're right about Duets. It's not great- although it has it's moments. It probably made an impression on me since I assumed it would be TERRIBLE, but it was pretty OK.

Don- That post was made a week or two ago?
The job is public health- very pure nursing.
Locals call that bridge the viaduct. They are essentially halfway through construction so Im hoping don't they still have twice the time remaining to completion...
Word on the street has it the old Super Save will be a strip mall.
