A New Chapter

I can’t believe it’s happening…but it is.

Starting October 5, I will be attending class at the Axia College at University of Phoenix. Due to the way their program is set up, I won’t just dabble, taking a course here and there…I’m in it for the long haul. I should have my Associates’ in business around June or so.

Based on my experience at Rio Salado, dabbling around with courses there, I don’t think I’ll have any problems with competency. However, time management to make sure that all of my coursework is done on time is my real concern. Wish me luck…and, if you know me personally, you probably won’t see as much of me. Sorry…but I promise I’ll try to make time.

Video for McCain

This video, taken off of Rush Limbaugh’s site, was too moving for me NOT to post. The video features Army Specialist Joe Cook, a veteran of our occupation in Iraq. Enjoy.

Massive Dump

Howdy, kids. There’s a lot of stuff packed tightly into Bubba’s noggin…here it comes.

  • Obama is pro-choice. I know that, you know that, all God’s children knows that. Do we really need reminders? If you’re pro-life, and abortion is a decisive issue for you, you know who your candidate is. Good night.
  • Speaking of political stuff…Heart is complaining about McCain/Palin’s use of their song, Barracuda. First of all, the song is covered by the licensing of the venues where it was performed, so legally, you don’t have a leg to stand on. Second of all, do you really think that someone using your song at a political rally makes people think “oh! Ann and Nancy must be McCain supporters!” Nope. Not for a second. You put your song out in public, and part of that action means that someone might use your song in a way you don’t like. That’s something you’re going to have to live with. And third, your song is thirty-one years old. THIRTY ONE years. You can’t be complaining about royalties.
  • Forgot to mention, Heart. You’ve lost at least one fan. Get over yourselves, please.
  • It’s been a much rougher road healing my ribs than expected. The generic message that I got from the urgent care clinic is that the x-rays were negative. Sorry, I have to disagree…because the muscle stuff has now gone, and it still hurts like H-E-double hockey sticks when I cough or sneeze or stretch the wrong way. Doesn’t matter, though. I started riding my bike to work today…and all I can say is it felt great. After two weeks of taking it easy, it was tougher than normal, but it didn’t take long to get some speed built up, and I made it to work in seven minutes this morning. Funny thing, is: driving takes over twice as long.
  • I plan to start walking a little bit tomorrow night, and then Saturday I’m going to push myself and do a normal Saturday walk for my training, which is now 14 miles. I also got new shoes, an even exchange for my old ones, that were causing a lot of blisters. Great service by the guys at Performance Footwear. Tempe at Rural and University, and Tucson. Great service, and they tend to beat other places from the two pair of shoes I’ve gotten there.
  • I’ve been listening to Jody Gnant’s album, Pivot. If you go to her website, you can download it for free. Very talented young lady, and the band isn’t bad. She’s also on Twitter, not to mention a live stream that’s on some of the time.
  • It’s been a stinky past few days for me as a baseball fan. The White Sox just won their game against the Blue Jays, but dropped three in a row before that. Next week they go to New York for their last series in Yankee Stadium. Make it a heartbreaker, boys.
  • The Dbacks haven’t fared any better, having dropped six in a row. *sigh*
  • From xkcd.com, my new favorite comic…married people have fights over the stupidest of reasons. I should know, I’ve started enough for a lifetime. EDIT: you’ll have to click on it to see the whole thing.
  • I decided I’m going to make biscuits tonight. With no rolling pin, this should be interesting.
  • I feel like I’m forgetting about 30 things…but I’m going to cut it short. G’night, and God bless.
