inspirational video

one of the things i miss from my practice was the
daily interaction i had with my young teenage and
young adult patients

once you lose that constant contact
you can actually get this distorted view of our youth
based on newspaper articles the internet and of course

one of the things i enjoy about working at habitat is that
we get these groups of kids coming in from schools churches
youth groups sport teams
that infusion of youth in our builds that frankly
i think all the volunteers that are regulars really enjoy
well most of us are gray haired and retired
enjoy it i do
i enjoy talking to them about what they are studying
what their college and future plans are
it gives me a pulse of what good hands our future is
being left in

they dont sweat a lot of the things we make as our issues
like gay marriage race etc

so i found this video below
this young college student is spending her college years
living in a retirement home

its well worth watching

here is the youtube link below for the above video if it does not show
on your smartphone

 click here to watch the video

when my time comes to enter one of these places
please allow those kids to live there
to youthenize us all

americas team

this weekend i set my dvr for the game where
americas team in the nfl in would be playing
i waited for 30 min or so then started watching
the team play
americas team
now ive been a long time cowboy fan as long as my
football memory is
theyve gone through some bad times recently
well how about 18 or so years it seems
but now they are looking good

so i sat down to watch americas team play on sunday
i sure like to watch their quarterback play
thats the first game i look for on the weekend is
when americas team plays and that quarterback plays

im talking about the 2014 americas team
the denver broncos
peyton manning
peyton manning should be the mould that all nfl teams
and nfl future quarterbacks try to mimic
on and off the field
heck i even like his jocular ads on tv

great performance by one of the best quarterbacks ever

to the old americas team

the cowboys are finally looking good
there are 4 things a successful team has to have
a good offensive line
a good running back
a good quarterback
a good defense

check check check check on all of those for those cowboys

could this be their year
i keep waiting for the stuff to hit the fan
running back injury
romos back to fail
more injuries
i almost want them to fail so jerry wont gloat so much
no im a diehard cowboy fan
lets go cowboys

i am sure enjoying the new sec channel
get to see any of the sec match ups i want to see every saturday
of course the new longhorn channel does the same for the

there was another colt mccoy sighting this weekend
as he lead the washington team to a win

you notice i didnt write the name of their mascot
is it offensive or not
i dont know since my dna shows i have no american indian blood
it seems simple to me on that question though
ask all the amerian indian tribes in that area
if they feel its a name that honors the american indian
keep it
if they feel its a racist term like the n word
then get rid of it
seems simple to me
i think the majority of american indians dont want to
be called the mascot name
what if the notre dame irish which seems ok to me
since my ancestry is part irish
was the notre dame drunks or the notre dame mics or mucks
offensive that would be
not allowed most irish would say

colt now is the official starter until rg3 returns
maybe colt will be the starter on monday night football
this week against the old americas team the cowboys
ill be pulling for colt mccoy in that game

wonder if the new america team plays the old americas team
this year

can you imagine a league made up of the big 12 and the sec
maybe chopping off a few teams like texas tech iowa state
what a great season that would be for college football huh
no team could ever get through that maize with no wins
dream is what we could do

what a great fall football season this is with more to come
