President's Points Well 2006 seems to be starting out with a bang... No.. not a literal bang, uh, how about, we had two events this past weekend. Ok, that is more like it. We had a chapter ride Saturday, Randy our newly elected road captain took us on some back roads (for what I will forever call the "Chili Run") to get to the Roadhouse, where we supported a fundraiser. Next we went to three bike shops dropping off "Ride With Us" flyers, and having good conversations with folks along the way. Finally, most of us went back to Randy and Paula's for Chili dinner and socializing. A good time was had by all, and the chili was pretty spicy (see January 14, 2006 on my blog). Sunday we went to the Roadhouse again after church, to the UCOA meeting. We heard how successful the food delivery in memory of J.W. Rock was at Christmas time. Our chapter supported one of the (I think it was) 26 families with a J.W. Rock food basket and some Christmas gifts (see December 21, 2005 on my blog).
By the time you get this newsletter, CMA Seasons of Refreshing will be upon us. I hope everyone is making their best effort to go, and please note that Seasons is open to non-CMA members, spouses, pastors, and pretty much anyone that would like to attend.
Click the title (or click here) for a video discussion at the end of the Chili Run Saturday evening at Randy and Paula's. It begins with something like "You Hit a Cow on the Road, it's Your Fault". For those of you "flash" limited, here are some pictures as well;
At the start of the ride, we had a pretty good sized group. Of course getting out of Randy's was something of a challenge because of the traffic, but we made it eventually. Queen Bee on her throne Two little wooden indians Wow that chili was gooood! Bill thought it was this big! Most of us didn't care how big it was. So..., Randy, how big was it?

Men's Breakfast at Church
here are some videos I took yesterday, going to, and during Men's Breakfast at church;
I got my scanner working over the holidays, so I have started scanning the remaining pages of the Brown Family History, instead of typing them in, which became a bit too labor intensive for me. each page has a small image, which you can click to see a large viewable, readable and printable image of the page.
At this point, I have added scans of the pictures, the large family tree, and several of the small family trees at the end of the book.

Click the title above to see a 15 minute video of the last minute of the Rose Bowl game between the Texas Longhorns and USC from the perspective of the television, of the audience at my house. This was a spactactular game, ant the last minute was incredible. In fact it was a cliff hanger. Watch it and see.
