Today's' events and a Question

Hey guys! Here is today's post.

Trip to Grandma's:
Today, we went up to my grandma's house. :-D I helped my grandad and my uncle change out the brake pads on our suburban. I tell you what, the difference in braking in unbelievable! It is like driving a new car! I also got to watch the History Channel, which I always enjoy.

Boys State:
Today we also worked on getting ready for a week long trip I am going to take this coming week. I will be attending Boys State. It is a program for high school junior's designed to teach respect "For God and country". It was established more than 60 years ago to combat the attempts of communists, anarchists, and other subversives who were attempting to recruit America's youth during the Great Depression. Their anti-government message was countered by the American Legion through the establishment of the Boys State program. The 720 boys from around the state get to practice state government in action, including running for office if they so desire. Other activity's include sports and speech's from the hero's who have gone before us. Each boy is guaranteed a spot on the legislature and the chance to write a bill. Now for the question.

"If you could pass any bill in your state, what would it be?"

Your answers will help me out a good deal in my preparation's. Thanks for your comments in advance.

Have a great day all!
The Blogging Boy Scout,

Site Updates and Lawn Mowing

Hey guys!

Today, I finished mowing the yard, read my library book about the Crusades, as well as doing other chores around the house. Which did not leave much time for blogging. :-( However more updates soon.

Have a great day all!

Update on the Scout

Hey everyone! Boy, have I been busy! Here is today's post.

This weekend I attended two homeschool graduations. They were both very good. Many of my friends graduated this year, and I wish them the best of luck as they launch into a new chapter of their lives. Congratulations graduates of 2005! :-D

After hearing about Mozilla from Agent Tim and Alex, I tried out this very nice web browser and found it be be highly superior to Internet Explorer. It load pages faster and just all around seems better! So, if you have time, please give Mozilla a look! :-)

The judicial showdown that flopped:
Grrrrr. Why did they do that?

I was out mowing also today, and I am tired, so I will let that issue go at that.

Thanks for visiting,

"A Little Brother Follows Me"

A careful boy I want to be;
A little brother follows me.
I do not dare go astray
For fear he’ll go the selfsame way.

I cannot once escape his eyes;
Whate’er he sees me do, he tries.
Like me he says he’s going to be-
That little brother following me.

He thinks that I am good and fine;
Believes in every word of mine.
The bad in me he must not see-
That little brother following me.

I must remember as I go
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
I’m building for the years to be
That little brother following me

Author Unknown

Update:I am so sorry. "bother" was in a spot in this where "brother" should be. That is not what I meant at all. :-( It has now been corrected.

The "NO" guy :-)

I don't know about you, but our whole family will dash to the living room just to see the "NO" commercials Capitol One is running these days. Man, those are funny! Here is a sample. *Man sits in cubicle, phone rings* CALLER: May I redeem my credit card miles? MAN: No. CALLER: But, I'm in Chicago it's freezing out here. MAN: Euw, I predict a no storm. CALLER: Can my miles get me to Saint Thomas? MAN: Saint happenen CALLER: Hawaii? MAN: A-NO-ha CALLER: Cabo? MAN: CobNO maybe CALLER: Who's in charge over there? MAN:That would be our C.E.NO And that's just one of the 7 commercials! Then it goes on into the blurb about the Capitol on NO hassle card. You can watch one of them here. But anyway, now the GOP has got in on the act! Gop.com has a movie up here claiming the Democrats "NO" everything. Go figure. :-) The Blogging Boy Scout, Travis

Another trip to the library!

Hello all!

The week in my book bag:

1. The Complete Book of U.S. Presidents

*Hops up and down with excitement*

2. Roe vs. Wade (1973)

I would that this case, did not exist

3. The Story of the Crusades

Interesting history book. It tells about all 7 major crusades.

4, 5, and 6. Green Berets, Army Rangers, and The Worlds best soldiers

These three books tell about, well, The Green Berets, the Army Rangers, and the Worlds best Soldiers. :-) They are pretty cool. They have pictures of their equipment, vehicles, training etc. The Book about the Worlds best soldiers tells about non U.S. special forces like the British S.A.S., the Russian Spetsnaz. I noticed that most of the non U.S. forces still use U.S. weapons though. I thought that was kinda interesting.

Well, Talk to you guys later!

Praise God for men like these

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to update my site again. I will try to do better in future. Life just seems to jump up and demand attention sometimes and these last few days have been somewhat that way. That about all I have got for now. I do want to point out that yesterday was the 60th aniversury of the end of World War II in Europe. I thought about our many men and woman who sacrificed the lives for the cause of freedom. These people are slowing leaving us now. By twos and threes, they depart from this world, and raise to meet the Creator. May we who remain here on earth learn from the lessons they leave us on history's golden page. Let us never forget those who died so that we might live.
Abe Lincoln said it best.

"It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us. . .that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last fullmeasure of devotion. . . that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain. . . that this nation, under God,shall have a new birth of freedom. . . and that government of the people. . .by the people. . .for the people. . . shall not perish from this earth."

What is going on at other blogs:

A "Incredible" Mom scene taken from the film. But left in the DVD.

Comment: The reason I thought this was really cool was partially due to the fact I have not seen this movie. We got watch all that many new movies as a whole, but this makes me think that this one might be neat. Have any of my readers seen it? If so, did you enjoy it? Was there anything objectionable in it?

Agent Tim's new site!

One of my favorite bloggers, Agent Tim has just moved his blog to a new site.


Boy, it is a cool site. New look, new address, same great blogging. The site itself was designed by Still Thinking. Please stop by their site and have a look around. They are a small, two person programmer/designer team, that came together with bloggers in mind. If I ever look into getting a new site, I may just have to look them up. :-)

Well, that's all for tonight. I hope to have more tomorrow.

One Cool Comic

Here is a neat comic I wanted to share with everyone.(click for larger image) I saw it in this weeks Sunday Oklahoman. As a whole, I really enjoy this comic strip. It is written by a Christian Republican. :-) Could one ask for much more?

Hehe...I found this over at Reggienation's old blog

1. Most parents were educated in the underfunded public school system, and so are not smart enough to homeschool their own children.
2. Children who receive one-on-one homeschooling will learn more than others, giving them an unfair advantage in the marketplace. This is undemocratic.
3. How can children learn to defend themselves unless they have to fight off bullies on a daily basis?
4. Ridicule from other children is important to the socialization process.5. Children in public schools can get more practice "Just Saying No" to drugs, cigarettes and alcohol.
6. Fluorescent lighting may have significant health benefits.
7. Publicly asking permission to go to the bathroom teaches young people their place in society.
8. The fashion industry depends upon the peer pressure that only public schools can generate.
9. Public schools foster cultural literacy, passing on important traditions like the singing of "Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg..."
10. Home schooled children may not learn important office career skills, like how to sit still for six hours straight.
