on my mind.

Good morning, it is Monday.

What is on my mind this very second?

1. I just rejected two more strange comments made to my blog. One was for Viagra and such medicines, the other for Mercedes Bends autos. I do feel bad about having to weed through the comments, but the number of spam I get is amazing. What is strange is that is it is usually for older posts and you would never know if you only look at the currents posts.

2. Amber has a thread on her Facebook about HD TV and boycotting shows that are not in HD TV. Of course it is all for fun, but it gets you thinking. Our TVs still have rounded glass fronts. Are we really missing out on a whole new world? Would a couple of $1000.00 TVs and an extra $30.00 a month really make us love TV more than we do now? Is that even possible?

3. If the movers and shakers at the church don't like the ELCA for some of it's new ideas on the roll of Bishops and the equality of all people in the ministry, why would they not shop around for their $500,000.00 building loan? Actions speak louder than words at times and giving them your half a million dollar business sounds like endorsement to me. I don't mind, I think I support the ELCA's decisions of late, but for those grumblers who seem to be the same exact folks securing the loan...why?

4. Would I buy a Toyota over a Ford ever again? Toyota's reputation built in the 1980s is not seeming to save them anymore...and the same seems to be true of Ford, but for the better. That thought does not last long because my Dodge mini-van will be a fixture in my driveway for a long time. But I don't think I would.

There you go. I got that out. Time to clean the living room, wake up the kids, and get ready for school.

See you tomorrow.

Hmmm... well, if you treated your TV's anything like you treated your cars, you would've upgraded to HD years ago. Chuck would recommend it. I say you're fine as is.

I drove a smart car today. We're participating in a car2go program at work which is pretty cool. At this point, I don't think I'd go with Ford or Toyota, would I? I'd have to get a fancy BMW mini-van or something like that ;)
