Monday morning meanderings. Vol.61

Cold this morning but the sun is shining.  That does make a difference.  As I have said repeatedly, the weather is very good here except for the wind. 

Item one.  Did you see T. Boone Pickins on 60 minutes last night.  He loves the wind we have out here.  Check this map out. (HERE)  His ranch and wind farm is about an hour or so west of here.  You can watch the 60 Minutes interview with T. Boone HERE.  I like this guy and wish he was running for prez.  He has actual plans and actually putting his money where his mouth is.  What a novel idea.  Maybe T. Boone could hook up with W. Buffett and fix things.  His view of things HERE.

Item two. Only 8 more days till the election.  Are you being bombarded with emails like I am with information about Obama?  I just don’t know what to think.  Is he a Muslim?  Is he the Biblical anti-Christ?  Are we on the door of the great tribulation?  Is he the messiah?  I know I won’t vote for him and there are a lot of questions but how does anyone actually know what is true and what is just made up?  What role does God play in all of this?  Does He place people in places of power or does He just let us have what we want?  A fairly reasoned approach to this subject can be found over at Vanguard.  I am not endorsing it, just find it interesting.  Find it HERE.

Item three.  Linda is in Washington now after a week with her family in Oregon.  She seems to be having a good time and enjoyed a few days on the Oregon coast with her two sisters.  I will join her Thursday evening for a long weekend.  Really looking forward to being back “home”. 

Item four.  Could there be anymore of a difference between the football teams of my home state and the ones in my adopted state.  Washington and Washington State are a combined 0-for the season and ranked near the very bottom of the Top 125 while Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have only one loss each and both to the #1 team in the country, Texas.  Oklahoma is #4 and Oklahoma State is #9.  Is it possible that two large state schools in the same state could be as miserable as UW and WSU? I watched a little of the UW/Notre Dame game and it was pathetic, not just horrible, embarrassing horrible.  On the other hand I watched both OU and OSU and they are very, very good, both of them.  It is fun to be in a state where the football is so good and Texas is on TV every week too.  Texas Tech and Missouri aren’t to bad either. If you like college football, this is a very good year to spend some time in the heartland. Update:  I forgot WSU did beat Portland State a junior varsity team.  There is another team here in Oklahoma that is 7-0, the Univerity of Tulsa Golden Hurricane. 

Have a great week.
