Love Believes The Best

Love believes all things, hopes all things. 1 Corinthians 13:7

For today’s dare, get two sheets of paper. On the first one, spend a few minutes writing out positive things about your spouse. Then do the same with negative things on the second sheet. Place both sheets in a secret place for another day. There is a different purpose and plan for each. At some poiint during the remainder of the day, pick a positive attribute from the first list and thank your spouse for having this characteristic.

Which list was easier to make? What did this reveal about your thoughts? What attribute did you thank your spouse for having?


Today is My Way Day, a day to determine our own identities all by ourselves

Today is National PTA Founders Day

Today is Practice Your Free Throws Day. You never know, it could win the game some day.

Today is National Snow Ice Cream Day (A little milk, sugar, vanilla, and a lot of snow).

Happy 46th birthday to basketball's Michael Jordan. He was so good. On lay-ups and slam-dunks he had greater hang-time than anything -- except possibly my laundry.

Kenneth Leader won the World Shouting Championship at Scarborough, England, on this day in 1973. When one person does the shouting, it's called a "singles" competition. When two people do the shouting, it's called "marriage."


The Missouri Tigers are now ranked # 11 by the AP and #10 in the USA / ESPN Poll both above KU!!!!

Another Collision
A British nuclear submarine collided with a French submarine in the Atlantic Ocean earlier this month. This follows the collision of an American communications satellite with a Russian satellite last week. Luckily, there are no reports of anyone accidentally getting their chocolate in someone else's peanut butter. When will this madness end!!!

Panetta Confirmed
The Senate confirmed Leon Panetta as CIA director last night. Panetta is the oldest person ever to lead the spy agency, thus guaranteeing that he'll be able to keep our most sensitive secrets by simply forgetting them.

New Survivor Series
I had a great idea for a new Survivor series….it stars American Banks!!! And only one survives.

There’s a new book -- "101 Ways To Make Money During The Recession". Way #1: Write a book titled -- "101 Ways To Make Money During The Recession".

President Barack Obama launches an economic whirlwind this week, signing the newly passed $787 billion economic stimulus package in Colorado, before moving to Arizona to tackle the home mortgage foreclosure crisis

I hope the President is getting sound economic advice. Here in Missouri we remember what President Harry S. Truman said:

"Give me a one-armed economist!"

Why did he say that?

President Truman was the first president to appoint a council of economic advisers. Unlike some later presidents, he actually liked to listen to his policy advisers. However, he preferred a clear recommendation, not a long discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of a particular course of action.

He quickly grew tired of economist who gave a good recommendation, and then began, "On the other hand..."

And that is why President Truman said: "Give me a one-armed economist!"

A double portrait of Presidents Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln faces the prospect of being eaten away -- not by the ravages of time, but by visitors to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington.

Created by artist Zilly Rosen, the portrait titled "A New Birth of Freedom," is made of more than 5,600 yellow cupcakes with different colored icing. The 9-foot by 15-foot portrait is on display at the museum.

The public is invited to "de-install" the portrait by eating the cupcakes.
The museum said this is Rosen's second cupcake portrait of Obama. Rosen, who runs the Buffalo, N.Y. bakery Zillycakes, constructed a 1,200-cupcake portrait of Obama in November and set it up in his campaign headquarters in Buffalo.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento police are looking for leads in a high-profile caper: The case of Lance Armstrong's missing $10,000-plus time-trial bike.

Early Sunday morning, officials from Armstrong's Team Astana and Armstrong himself reported on their feeds that the one-of-a-kind, black-and-gold bike he used Saturday in the Tour of California's Sacramento prologue and three other teammates' bikes were stolen from a team truck.

"Bad way to start the morning ... Bikes stolen from the truck last night," reads the Team Astana feed.

As the police began their investigation, the race rolled on with a 108-mile first stage from Davis to Santa Rosa.

Armstrong, 37, a seven-time Tour de France winner who is on the comeback trail after announcing his retirement in 2005, is the major attraction in the race.

The bikes were stolen from an unmarked truck parked in an alley behind a Sacramento hotel between 10 p.m. Saturday and 6:45 a.m. Sunday, when the theft was discovered, said officer Konrad Von Schoech, a spokesman for the Sacramento Police Department.

Armstrong posted a picture of the bike on his Twitter feed and wrote: "There is only one like it in the world therefore hard to pawn it off."
