Switching to the Dark Side
So I have been in the blogging world for about 3 years with most of the time spent in blogger. In that time I have posted fairly regularly. I have seen friends' blogs come and go. Lately, I haven't had much to say. Maybe I have been busy. Maybe my regular teaching in our ministry has left me bereft of anything worth saying. I don't know.

Now I am a fairly social guy and I admit that my blogger blog has been neglected quite a bit. Compound that with the fact that it has been hit on several occasions by angry people. I think I have come to the conclusion that I need to close my blogger blog and head to myspace. Let's face it, with pictures, music, and easy connections it's a no brainer. Hold your tears my xanga friends, I will still post here, but if you wanna know my myspace page name just comment here and I will email it to you.

I am a little sad. I have posted much of my life, thoughts, feelings, and theologizing on blogger. I will grab all my old posts as to keep them for posterity. I am sure the blogger police are going to burst into my room tonight demanding that I delete this post, but I shall stand against the infidels.

We got back last night from our trip with the Aledo Choir. We had an awesome time. We saw Graceland (including Elvis' jumpsuits, plane and raquetball court). We rocked out at the Rock N Soul museum. We got yelled at by an elderly lady at Andrew Jackson's (the 7th US president) home. We raved in a hotel board room and jived on a river boat. We made fun of radio commercials at the Grand Ol Opry and clapped heartily at the country stars there. We ate BBQ at a saloon and crappy hamburgers at Rainforest Cafe. We watched tons of movies on the bus. I drooled over Johnny Cash memorabilia. We played around a statue of naked people and visited a life-sized replica of the parthenon. We laughed...a lot.
I really enjoyed my time with my new Aledo High School friends and the friends I already had. I really will try to make this a yearly event. My hope is that the relationships started on trips like these will allow for the Gospel to spread among my high school friends.
The next few weeks will be busy with spring break activities (guys/girls night out on thursday evening) website stuff, retreats and over hectic-ness.
