Someone famous has died

My brother put this on his twitter and it was so good. I just had to share. Many of us saw this happen on TV this week. Click on the picture to see more.

Phil is on twitter

So I decided to try something. I will add my twitters to my blog. So when I twitter, it will show up here. I had to go public with my twitter in order to do this. Which means I will need to keep an eye on who follows me. I don't want people trying to sell me stuff via twitter. So if this works, I will keep it going. But if I get to many sales pitches or offers to check out someone's web cam for $3.99 a minute. Then I will remove my twitter from public access the stay private.

1766 vistors and counting

I have reached the highly valued number of 1766 visitors to my blog. When I started my blog, I had no idea who or how many would actually read my ramblings. But surprisingly many have read as well as commented my blog.
I had received well wishes during happy events. Others had empathized with me about issues I've faced. I have received some good comments on political discussions. One was from an anonymous commenter who raised some good points and I would have loved to known who the commenter is. Some I've agreed with, some I have not, but all I have enjoyed discussing.

I have also enjoyed linking to other blogs and keeping in touch with others. Like with my sister in California, a brother in Wyoming. Family and friends around the valley.

We have been encouraged to keep journals or diaries for future prosperity. My blog is the closing thing I have to that.

Thanks for reading. There will be more rants and ramblings in the future. Especially when football season starts up again. I can't wait for that.

Random things

June in Utah is normally a very hot and dry time. But this year it has been most unusual. Rain on most of the days, including my birthday. Not just small rain storms, but major downpours. Living in the desert, we are always thankful for rain. But I still cannot get used to it. Must be what it feels like to live in Seattle.

The new temple is having an open house for the next few months. Yesterday we took the kids and went through it. It is very lovely. I loved the design of the building, inside and out. Very good art, stone stairs and big light fixtures. Unfortunately, Michael wanted to touch everything and so was running all over the place. It was very difficult to keep him in line. Other than that, we enjoyed it very much.

I have been asked by a few friend on what is the best movie I have seen so far this year. I have seen X-men, Star Trek, Angels and Demons, Terminator and Up. (Only paid for 1 of them.) Of all the movies, the one I want to go back and see again is Star Trek. It was very good and I still enjoy looking up the trailer for it on the Internet.

While I blog I am checking out a new show called "Wipeout." It looks like the American version of MXC. I enjoyed that show and so far, I am enjoying this one two. Lost of spills, slips, falls and mud baths. Check it out if you want to laugh.

New Twilight New Moon Trailer

This post is brought to you by an effort to stay ahead of Jen by having more posts than her. Men always try to make everything into a competition, don't they?

The trailer for the new Twilight movie "New Moon" has been released. It looks cool. Check it out at the below URL:
