I once again had the privilege of posting our pastor’s Monday Morning Review this week while he is on vacation. It’s a little tribute to Rahab and other mothers.
If you have a few minutes, check it out and give his blog a nice little traffic boost.
I just found this blog (The Roscoe Hard Times) about my hometown on facebook, so I had to share.
It’s fairly new, but all you old Plowboys out there can keep up with the happenings of Roscoe, TX, USA from the comfort of your laptop or smartphone.
Give it a look.
Also, just a reminder, the campaign website can be found here:
I want to encourage everyone in Nolan County, Texas to get out and vote on November 2, 2010. Also, early voting is from October 18-29. The last day to register to vote is October 4, 2010. If you need information about voter registration, visit:
Oh, I’m sure I’ll get used to the PAC 16-or whatever it will be called. Who knows(?), it might even be better than the Big 12, but I hope Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma State crush Nebraska this year as a farewell statement. I really wish Texas Tech played Nebraska this year, a 70-24 score would be nice.
And I feel sorry for Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State. A little less so for Iowa State, but only because I barely got to know her. But not at all for Missouri because she’s been playing the harlot all along just begging for someone to ask her to dance.
The Texas schools should thump Colorado, too, this year for jumping the gun to avoid being displaced by Baylor, and because everyone in Texas is going to have to listen to Baylor alums whine for the next 2 years.
This is the second consecutive year for the Sweetwater Prayer Center to host the event. The event last year was a great success.
The Prayer Center will be dedicated to the National Day of Prayer on May 6 and unlocked from 7-7, but it is open 24/7 to everyone (with a keyless entry code). To get the Prayer Center code and pray whenever you like, all you have to do is register. It really is a great place to spend some time w/God.
So, if you get a minute, check out On Courage, Missions and Other Cool Stuff.
Beauty of the Bible was recently listed on an altogether different type of blog list, the Texas Bar Blog’s list of Texas lawyer blogs. It’s obviously not a list of exclusively legal or law-related blogs, but it is a list made up exclusively of blogs published by Texas lawyers.
There are also humor, food, news and other non-legal blogs. If you need a little more to read, you might check it out.
I’m in the middle of a site redesign for my law firm’s website: petermlopez.com. It is still in the very early stages, and content is sparse, but the basic look and feel is there. Please visit, have a look around, and feel free to offer thoughts, ideas, suggestions, tips, pointers, cash, or anything else you think might be helpful.
I am using SquareSpace for the site construction and hosting. The website tools are quite remarkable and easy to use. I would highly recommend it. If any of you are familiar with SquareSpace, please let me know, I would love to pick your brain about it.
My design skills are somewhat lacking, but I’ve played around with one of the templates I liked, and I think the foundation is there for a decent site.
For any of you who aren’t my friends on facebook, I just updated my status as follows:
“Peter M Lopez can smell football season in the air, ahhh. I expect Texas to win the national championship, narrowly defeating Notre Dame 35-34 in the championship game, and the Dallas Cowboys to win the Superbowl.”
This would, of course, be my dream scenario…but, for the first time in many, many years, this is not such a laughable possibility.
So, what does this have to do with the Bible? Well, let’s see, having been born and raised Catholic, “Touchdown Jesus” is iconic. The only acceptable defeat for the Irish would be to the Texas Longhorns. “Touchdown Jesus” is also perhaps the greatest legend in football…
…second only to the hole in the roof of Texas Stadium so God can watch the Cowboys.
So, there you have it.
