Grumpy Old Cow...

Firstly, Congratulations to Ian Thorpe - you are an inspiration. I doubt you will read this (well, you never know, retirement may turn into a life of blog-dem), but you do us southerners proud! I wish you success in every avenue of life.

Smithy is SAVED!!! (okay stop laughing any UK Bill fans). YAY!!! I am not one of those girls into prison-boy chic. Ug! I actually looked Alex Walkinshaw up on some talk shows on You Tube. Alex, keep up the good work - who knows, you could be the new Christopher Ellison before you know it!

Well, I guess it's my turn (again) to be grumpy! I recently hired the 2 Grumpy Old Women DVD's from the local Video store. Here's the list...
  1. To my horror the younger 'Grumpies' were only about 10 years older than me!
  2. Happy Meal Toys - Sean received a toy music thing (that I can only assume is an infantile I-Pod substitute) that sings "I like to move it" over-and-over-and-over again. Thank goodness he hasn't worked out the master switch...yet.
  3. The anti-Christian pre-Christmas saturation. I'm not anti-Santa, but seriously, if you aren't prepared to keep baby Jesus in Christmas, don't be a hypocrite and take the Holiday Season's benefits. Santa does not equal Saviour!

Anyway, that's my rant and rave for now...

Weird Sites

I don't know how many of you (like me) click the "next blog" button if they have a few spare minutes. As a result, I've decided to start "showcasing" weird (in my opinion) sites and blogs. Here's a blog on "Hott Cops" - yes that is hot with two t's - that makes my Smithy dedication look somewhat, well, boring. By the way, she's a mustache chick - ewww! Oh, just realised that it says over 18's but the main page is innocent enough...

Perenti Website

Yay! While showing a friend how to Blog yesterday (and she showed me how to Ebay) we stumbled across the Perenti website.

Blessed Be Your Name...

Blessed be your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where the streams of abundance flow
Blessed be your name

Blessed be your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be your name

Every blessing you pour out,
I turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say...
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be your glorious name

Blessed be your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's all as it should be
Blessed be your name

Blessed be your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be your name

Every blessing you pour out,
I turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say...
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, Blessed be your name
