starbucks vs. caribou

July 30, 2005 2 comments

So what do you think is better Starbucks v. Caribou? I prefer Starbucks personally. I sort of got hooked on it while I was stuck on lay over in the Cincinnati airport back in June. Unfortunately there is no Starbucks in Monticello.

Thursday I brought my old Starbucks cup to the Caribou drive thru and asked them to refill it. They didn’t really think it was that funny, but they took my old cup and gave me a free Caribou so that was cool.

So which do you prefer? You could throw Dunn Bros. in the mix too.

It is now official. My cell phone is totally uncool and way out of date. I am a total techno loser. Check out this new gear from Motorola and Oakley:

Thanks to Anthony Coppedge for tuning me in to this.

doing it ‘my way’

July 28, 2005 1 comment

My message on Sunday is going to be focused on Jesus as the “Way” to life. Part of it will be confronting the truth that most people never give Jesus a chance to lead because they are too busy trying to do things there own way; this attitude of individualism is perfidious exemplified in the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s song ‘My Way’:

And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I’ll say it clear,
I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.

I’ve lived a life that’s full.
I’ve traveled each and ev’ry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I’ve had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say – not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows –
And did it my way!
