posting html code in your blog post...

after my last post some of you are saying... how did he post that html code?

well with html in order to post on blogspot the <code> tags do not work so you have to encode each character. for example < is the same as &lt;

I found a real cool website that will encode your html for you:


Blog Icons...

Devon asked me how I had changed my icon by the address bar. I had no idea since it just showed the blogger icon on my computer. This is the icon he saw:

and this is what it showed on my computer:

Up to the challenge I went online looking for how to change it and I found this instruction:

That blogspot icon is what know as HTML favorite icon. To change it just put this code in your html template.
<link rel="SHORTCUT ICON" href="/some/location/favicon.ico" >

Then I created my own image and uploaded it at :

Hope that helps Devon :D

Rally Report

Today at the FOX31 building down town Schaffer and Udall filmed a debate that will air next Sunday on fox. Two hours before the debate started I went down town and joined a predebate rally. It was more like a two hour shouting match between us and the Udall people for a couple hours.

It was great fun. We yelled things like... Drill Here, Drill Now - People before trees - Beat Him Again Bob - U-turn (Udall)

They chanted things like Udall is our man, If he can't win, no one can - Senator(u-turn) Udall - and other things that meant nothing...

What I was wondering is if you guys had any great ideas for chants for rallies to come. Maybe something that had to do with gas prices.

I thought of this one on my way home:

Vote for pain at the pump, Vote for Udall the chump.

I got it started... give us your ideas on any topic... war, taxes, lying, etc

Be not Ashamed, God is not Mocked

A powerful message that dad showed us tonight that has not only convicted me but clarified a lot of questions that have been in my mind. I hope it does as much good for you as it did for me.

Longs Peak Climb - Aug 9th - Loft Rout

Date: August 9, 2008
Difficulty: class 3 (scrambling)
Summit Elevation: 14,255ft
Trailhead Elevation: 9,400ft
Elevation Gain: 5,300ft
Round Trip Length: 13 mi

Every one who is up to the climb is invited. We only have so many seats in our van so if you want to get a ride up with us get in touch soon.

We have always wanted to do this climb, but were held back by the fact that it is not well marked. A real nice person at my dad's work who knows the rout has offered to guide a trip up this rout. It will be a challenge and is not for the faint of heart.

The RED line is the Loft Rout.
The PURPLE is the Keyhole Rout.
The BLUE is a class 4 variation.
YELLOW is a couloir for Skiing when covered with snow.

My Brother's new get-out-of-school Plan

After I saw what he was planing on passing out with our phone number on it... well... I had to fix it. He was thrilled with what it looks like now... His next mission is getting mom to let him leave the house. Until he get's his school done... he can't shovel refuse. What a incentive?

Fist Bumping in the Oval Office

RUSH: The New Yorker magazine has a cover out, and of course Obama and his side are going nuts. Now, the New Yorker is a bunch of socialists, a bunch of libs. I have the cover of The New Yorker, and it's a satire making fun of the way some of the right wing supposedly thinks about Obama. It's got Obama dressed up like Mohammed, with a big white turban and sandals and so forth, and his wife, Michelle (My Belle), is a big afro-haired terrorist with an AK-47 or something slung over her shoulder and they're doing the fist bump in the Oval Office, and the flag is burning in the fireplace and so forth. A photo of Bin Laden, that's right, a photo of Osama Bin Laden is over the fireplace while the flag is burning.

So the Obama campaign's going nuts about this. The Democrat Party is going nuts about this. Man, these people cannot take it. They just cannot take it. I mean, the New Yorker, here we have a bunch of liberals and they're having to explain the fact that people don't understand this is satire. See, liberals have no sense of humor. But here's the thing about humor, the thing I've always said, keep in mind who's doing this, folks, the New Yorker. These are rock-solid liberals here. Now, all good comedy has to have an element of truth in it or it isn't funny, and the Obama people are saying that this isn't funny. Some of the ways George W. Bush has been caricatured over the term of his eight years or Condoleezza Rice or whatever, I mean these people need to grow up out there.

IBLP Conferance

I was encouraged and convicted over many things from the IBLP conference.
One great thing that I was encouraged to do is assign a person as a "prayer target" who I would pray for when I am tempted to sin in a certain way.

I was also encouraged to memorize. But not just memorize scripture but the meditate on it. Instead of listening to the radio on my way into and from work I am going to work on memorizing.

I also really enjoyed playing hockey with you all and I hope we can do it again. Who would be available to play before the next Bible study for an hour?

No scooter...

My uncle and I went to buy the scooter on Friday last week and the dealership tried to add $400 or so in "freight charges, dealer fees, set up, etc" so he took his deposit back and left.

He is also on the verge of selling the business also so as of right now I'm driving the car. All I can say is, debt is a bad thing.

A total ruckus...

My uncle, who I do sales for, has been paying for my gas when I'm out doing sales for him. Well this week the sales just started coming in. He also decided that he want's something for me to drive that would get real good gas millage while I'm out doing sales. He put a deposit on a Honda Ruckus... I'll get it in a couple of weeks. At 100mpg it fits the bill. And if I need to go to another town I can just throw it in the back of the car. It is the only scooter that is not completely feminine. Once we get it I'll post picts.

speeding ticket

I got a speeding ticket today. I was doing 82 in an area that has been as long as I remember a 75. Well I admit, I saw the sign for 65 but I didn't slow down. I'm thankful that of all days I was caught today. Because, in that same spot traffic opened up in front of me right there last week sometime and I went fast enough to get my license pulled or at least go to court.

It was a $99 2 point ticket. He said if I was pulled over just 50ft farther in the work zone it would have been over $300. Another thing. The actual ticket was $65, but they added a $34 "fuel surcharge". If I would have known that I would have tried to get my $34 worth of fuel. He maybe spent 50 cents pulling me over. I know, I know... I don't stand a chance in a Honda Accord and my ticket would have just been higher if I went for my monies worth in that fuel surcharge.

Have a good day and drive safe. :D
