Hope this message finds all well. nice to see some of the stalwarts providing the foundation and support beams to keep this community shining! Me, I'm swimming in the land of opportunity wearing shark bait underwear with the toughest decision being which direction to swim to. Not a great place to be, but I've been in worse. Keep smilin' and being a good neighbor. Peace and Love.....

      the halo 3 ad that ran last monday night was soooo good it got my juices flowing not only for the game, but for the movie as well. the movie may have been set back a little while, but that is not a bad thing. think of where mo-cap and cg is right now (lord of the rings, king kong) just imagine what 2 more years of evolving computer technology will do for pulling off master chiefs sick moves and jumps! for those of you who have not seen the ad, shame on you and click on the link RIGHT NOW!

      over the past few months, i have neglected my rvb account, only coming on to dwnload new episodes. i have concentrated my time in other areas of my life, but i have not forgoten my friends here in cyber space. all of you i have on my list have contributed at least one thought provoking comment or idea that has made me think about who i am as a person, what my actions may contribute to others, and/or what it really means to be a part of a whole. that is why i asked you to be my friends. keep on doing what you do. remember, a friend is for support first, and criticism only when support fails. i hope all is well, and i hope each day finds us a new challenge, and new friends.

      I have no ut conections but i like rootin for texas teams as a default and underdogs when not going against my teams. That said, this year's addition of the grandaddy of them all, the rose bowl, is quite honestly one of the best freaking games of any sport that i have ever seen. I know last years rose bowl was a td tradin contest with ut pullin a one point win and there have been other great games in history, but lets look at what was at stake here. USC: going for third str8 title; has two heisman winners on squad; has two legitimate top ten nfl draft pick running backs; has the top rated coach in ncaa, considered a defensive genius with the know how to stop vince young. UT: has quarterback which many felt should have won this year's heisman; has freshman running back who will be a threat for the heisman in years to come; top 5 ranked defense in the ncaa, the likes of which usc has not met in almost two years; has a coach, once dubbed by spurrier as one of the "lose brothers", that until this year went 20 yrs with out a conference title and felt by many as unable to win the "big one". Outcome: half of usc's heisman tandam had the game's bone head play award; neither team had the complete answer defensively as there were only 4 punts all night; biggest play of night was ut stuffing usc's white on 4 and 2 with 2 min left in game (a surprise since white could not be stopped all night runnin between the tackles); bmoc award going to vince young as he single handedly beat pete carrol's defense racking up 267 pass yrds with 75% comp and 200 yrds rushing with 10.5 yrd avg and orchestrating 15 unanswered points in the final 6:30 of the game! What a game!

      They also have an acoustic version, but it's pretty similar.

      Osso Buco sounds good, but I don't have time to slow roast something for that long. Also truffles are kinda expensive at this time of year. True they are in season during the winter, but most are imported and it's kinda summer there. I am kind of thinking about shrimp and bacon wrapped scallop skewers, but I know for sure sometime next week the ever famous flank steak is going to make it's debut...this is the stuff that won me a grilling contest along with a bleu cheese ribeye and bacon wrapped scallops and grilled asparagus. Good stuff.
