Okay, injury prone is one thing, but this is ridiculous. After missing all of last year, Oden only played 13 minutes before leaving the game from injury. Blazers don't know how serious it is yet, but this is not promised new beginning everyone was hoping for. Is it possible for him to play wrapped in a protective shell, like the bubble-boy?

This weekend I had our fall RA retreat. We had a great time and everyone was able to make it both Friday & Saturday night. We were able to work on our vision for the year, watch movies & football, and enjoy the hot tub. There was only one broken nose that culminated with a trip to the emergency room. For those who are counting, that's two years out of three that I had to take somebody to the Grove, OK emergency room during an RA retreat (same Dr. both times).

Happy Birthday

Ford & GM turn 100 this year. For 77 years GM has been the largest auto maker and last year they lost $38.7 million. The price of a gallon of gas back in 1908 was 18 cents (adjusted for inflation that's $3.90).

Elisa's First Coke

It wasn't on purpose, but Elisa had her first Coke this weekend. For a while now she's liked to grab the straw of whatever your drinking. Of course she'll put it in her mouth, but she had never mastered the art of sucking through a straw. While having dinner on Friday she finally pulled some through. Shock is a good way to describe her reaction. She stuck out her tongue, puckered her face and let it all dribble down her shirt. It was really cute though.
