I have to make a decision.

Well, as many of you may not know, I will be a graduating senior this year. Thats right, I will be done with the whole high school life, thank god. So, that means I have to be looking into all the great colleges around. Another thing you may not know is that I'm a highly competitive skeet shooter. Skeet is a shotgun sport, some people have no clue as to what it is so i had to add that little detail.

Anyway, I am looking at Texas State, Tech, Texas University, or George Mason. I am looking at these schools because they have great shooting teams and I have been looked at by those schools to shoot for them. This situation is going to be a tough one as all the schools offer great things in a unique way.

So, I need your help, which one would you pick?

This is going to be hard and a long process before this school year ends. But, wish me luck.

Battling Huricane Dolly.

Well, the family and I made it out of Hurricanc Dolly and battled the sucker till the end. Yesterday seemed like the whole town was going to be swept away be water, I thought I might have to just swim back to where the condo was, but, that wasn't possible. Things aren't looking good for everyone right now as she is still dumping water all over the south texas and will keep contiuning that till prolly this weekend.

Crazy stuff here in Texas and I know you have seen all this on the news, but, its serious stuff, everyone here needs your prayers and I'm sure you will keep all the people down here suffering in them. I myself am fine, we made it out and have came back to where other family lives in North Texas just to stay out of the mess.

If any of you were caught in it, I hope you make it safely and may god be with you.

I want an Iphone.

So, the past few weeks or days I guess, I have been thinking about getting the new Iphone. I"m on Altell at the moment, but, I have the money to ditch the contract and get with ATT. The problem with that is, I just got my new Blackberry Curve, I love the thing, it's just that im not big into the whole enterprise/buesiness stuff. So, thats why I was thinking about ditching the BB and going with the Iphone. So, here is my question to you guys.

Give me your honest opinion on what you like about the Iphone and what you do not like about it. Whats the best feature? And, would you reccomend it to me?

Thanks in advance.

Letting a dear friend go.

I experienced something tonight that I have never done, or ever thought I would ever have to do.  The things I write in this blog are form the heart and if you do not care to read it and just want to stop now, you can. This is just my way to vent and mabye get a little insight.

It's about 9:30pm central time, I am driving down main street when a car I recoginze honks and tells me to follow her. I follow and pull into a parking lot, she gets out and its a girl I haven't seen in a long time. We sit there and talk for a little while and she asks if she can get into my yukon and we can drive around and talk. So, here we are driving around and just talking when I notice that she isn't acting right and I ask her whats wrong. Well, she is a little tipsy and she asks if she can use my cell to call a friend and tell her she is staying the night. Well, this friend isnt just the best friend, she has been in and out of rehab just like the girl that is with me. So, they make the plans to get together when I leave. Maddison(the girl that is with me) had told me earlier that she had go to off work, but, I kind of thought that as weird as the city pool is not open on a sunday unless it's a private party or so company party.

To make a long story short and sweet, maddison had lied to me, told me she had gotten off and her mom knew she was with me. I get a call from her mom asking where she is and she had called the cops and they were out looking for her.  So, I confront maddison and she again lies, so, I have to take her to her car and then I was on my way home. While on my way home, I recieve a call from her brother that asks if I can come over to their house and talk with them. I was fine with it, I didn't do anything wrong, I was lied to. So, I head over there and when I get there her mom and her and her brother are sitting in the living room. Her mom sits there and tells me eerything is not my fault and that maddison is an addict, which I knew she had a problem and I am a perosn that wants to help people like her. Turns out, maddison had been doing this same thing all week and her mom had enough.

Maddison and I have been super good friends for about two years now, I have tried to get her to be with me just to keep her out of trouble, but, someitmes im not cool like the kid with the vodka. But, thats not me. Before I leave maddisons house, her mother informs me that maddison will be sent off for a good year to rehab. Now, It didn't really hit me, I just sat there and was like alright, maybe that is the best for her.

When I went outside, It hit me. The girl I have cared about and tried keeping her out of trouble is going to be sent off and I wont see her for a full year, I know some of you may think this is just a kid crying about his friend being sent off. But, no, its more than that, maddison means the world to me and if she doesn't talk to herself and try to change, I dont think maddison will be around much longer.

 

Just a hard and tough thing for me, and I thought I would share as maybe some of you have been in my shoes. Any help would be great.

Thanks.

I have found a home.

I have been searching and wandering alot through the sports world looking for great sports communities to mingle with and talk sports related topics with. I have tried the whole ESPN thing, and don't get me wrong, the place is great and full of all over the world sports, but, I just can't get involved with the community like I can here.

On the other hand, as all communites have some bad/immature people I like this one because everyone is so laid back and no at each others throat all the time. So, this is a thanks for all the peopl out there that have been decent in the welcoming process and have made this site what it is.

Thanks, and have a great weekend.

Is Offshore drilling the answer?

Houston—There's something about the heavy air here that puts visions of drilling in the mind. On Tuesday, John McCain, who came to pander to the local oil industry, called for a reversal of the 27 year ban on offshore drilling. (President Bush echoed it today), and threw in a plea to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for good measures). After two days here, chatting with people in the oil industry, and with the many locals who benefit from it, I was ready to wade into the waters off of Boca Raton, Florida, and start prospecting for black gold.

Partisans of more drilling frame their arguments as a simple declarative statement. If we just open up the coastal shelves and ANWR for drilling today, the very prospect of marginal additions to global supply (current usage is about 87 million barrels per day in the world) at some point in the middle of the next decade will magically cause prices of crude—and hence gasoline—to fall immediately. Of course, gas at $4 a gallon inspires a lot of similarly addled thinking. The canard that China is drilling near Florida's coast recently traveled a direct route from a George Will column to a Dick Cheney speech. One of my luncheon companions here asserted confidently that Russia was already drilling offshore. I nodded, and just barely avoided choking on my crawfish taquitos.

On the 45th floor boardroom of Shell's U.S. headquarters, I did, however, hear a reasoned, measured-almost convincing-case for more drilling. It was delivered by John Hofmeister, who is retiring next month as president of Shell's U.S. operations, and is embarking on a quest to inspire ordinary Americans to demand from their elected representatives a fundamental change in energy policy. (Call it Houston Astroturf.) Hofmeister isn't what you'd expect from an oilman. His accent is the flat patois of the Midwest, not a Texas twang. His degrees are in political science, not engineering or geology. When we met, he wore a light cotton button-down shirt with a Shell Eco-Marathon logo on it. Hofmeister emphasizes that he is speaking in his capacity as the founder of a new non-profit, Citizens for Affordable Energy, and not for Shell.
