Facebook, etc

This thing has been pretty cool. I have contacted people that I haven't spoken to in a decade or more, I am networking with people that I barely know, and it is a little bit of fun.

So, in the last post I spoke about my camera getting stolen. Well, we found the thief! It was my wife. It was hidden away in a bag that had been put away after our last weekend trip. So, it was not really stolen, just misplaced. LOL... I had even bought a new one to replace it... guess I need to hurry up and take it back!!

Well the first MIZZOU football game is this weekend!! So ready!! I love football. And, finally, the tigers are respectable. I am tired of Jayhawk fans. They cheer for their basketball team and all it's glory. It has been a powerhouse basketball team since the 50's. Of course the best players want to go there and of course they do well.

I don't think you are real fan unless you stick with your team through the bad times before you see the good times and you stay with them when it goes bad again. I really hate "bandwagon fans"... those that only root for winning teams and it changes from year to year. The jayhawk fans that I come in contact with talk like they are "entitled" to it or something... naw, root for a team where the goalposts are torn down after ANY win since they are so few and far between as I did with MIZZOU in the late 80's and early 90's. Hell, I was one of the people tearing them down. Then get to watch them start winning... those are the fans... not those that only know the team when they are winning.

The same goes for the Chiefs. They are going to suck this year. That is expected when more that half of the team have less than 2 seasons experience. They are rebuilding through the draft. Not a quick-fix-find-a-free-agent-to-fill-a-role rebuild, an old-school rebuilding. Creating a team that is used to working together. That is the way it should be done.

I guess that is all I have for today...

Fighting through pain + allergies right now, but that is boring.

Not sure what to write about, but I haven't left any entries for a while.

My headaches are mostly gone. After 4 shots of steroids to the spine and an increase in meds (like I need more... I take about 16 pills and 1 shot a day right now), there are only a few break-through pain episodes now and they are all minor. Nothing like the ones that started this whole thing.

Maybe it is because the temperature around here is freakishly low for August. I am pretty sure that has something to do with it.

So, only news I have is that someone (teenagers from the neighborhood, I'm sure) broke into my truck and stole cigarettes and nice digital camera. Sucks. Don't have the money for a new camera. I have been looking around in the classifieds online and in the newspapers for the camera. It had family pictures still on it! I haven't found it yet.

So, I found facebook this month. I originally had not planned to use any sites like that, but many of my friends across the country use it and it is a way to keep in contact. It has been sort of nice, but takes up too much time. I have suddenly ran into people that I have not talked to in 20 years. No kidding. High School.

Oh well. That is all I have got for now. Nothing really good or bad going on.
