3 or 4 times during the prayer time I had someone tap me on the shoulder and ask: "Who died?" It was the same question from each person! I smiled and told them that at this time each year, Christians across North America gather around their school's flag pole and pray for the school, the students and the teachers. Not a single person I talked to thought that was weird, rather most said "Cool." Now after our conversation finished they stuck around for a while watching us, and at one point I felt like I should ask them "Do you want us to pray for you?" But I didn't. I'm kicking myself for missing that opportunity, but the whole experience was a positive one for me.

He didn't look like a regular church attender, who knows, maybe it was his first time coming in a while? He clearly didn't feel comfortable sitting on his own amongst strangers... I wonder why? Maybe because they look down on him because he doesn't know the "rules" for a Sunday morning? How about we scrap the "rules" and show some more love? Instead of giving the guy dirty looks, give him a warm smile and maybe even introduce yourself later? Maybe I'm wrong and need to be more reverent in church. It's a definite possibility. I just feel that church is missing the point when it comes to "the lost"... I'll leave it at that.

P.S. - I even got a pie in the face. My hair is rock hard and full of gunk!

It appears as if that routine might be a thing of the past. Cold mornings mean cold bodies in the water, and the water isn't all that warm anymore either. As much as I don't want to admit it, the sun might be setting on my skimboard season.

Who would win in a fight; a duck or a cougar?
I think they may be one of the funniest things I have seen in a while. The Duck opens up a can on the cougar after it imitates the Duck's trademark "Pushup Dance" I love the Duck's swagger at the end... Check it out!

I remember my first videogame system. I got a Nintendo when I was in grade 4 and I was so stoked! Playing RBI Baseball and Excitebike all day. Not doing my homework, not getting the exercise I should have, I was a videogame zombie. But I eventually grew out of it (sort of) and got back to playing outside. I'm glad I did, otherwise with all the junk food I ate, I'd be in terrible shape right now.
Video games have changed though haven't they. Now the Ninetendo Wii makes you move around, and actually work up a sweat depending on the game you play. Not to mention the physical activity you get from Guitar Hero. Despite all this, I still think it's more fun to "play" outside.
