Getting ready to get back to my Filipino Stickfighting class. They are Thursday nights at 8:00pm but the last couple months I have missed them due to my son’s football games. Have been taking Balintawak for 10 years. This is a single stick art and it has improved my hand speed tremendously.
Yeah – I can punch an ISIS terrorist three times in the chest and then reach in….pull his heart out…and show it to him before he dies. Everybody has to have a hobby.

I played trumpet in Middle School and a bit in High School (until I discovered “chicks!”). My youngest – 6th grade – just started playing. It’s actually pretty cool to pick it up and have everything start coming back. My son is impressed.

I just heard about the City of Houston Texas requiring certain local ministers to submit their sermons to make certain they were not preaching against homosexuality. Am I still living in the United States? In a country that a city government can control was is said in a Church? Gee – I don’t remember any government official requiring Pastor Jeremiah Wright to submit his sermons after he screamed “God Damn America!!!!” in his church.
