Think Big Tonight?

Dr. Ben Carson is the director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Childrens Center as well as professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery and pediatrics. He’s known as lead surgeon on several high-profile separations of conjoined twins, as well as for his work with craniofacial reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Carson has also authored three books entitled Gifted Hands, Think Big, and The Big Picture. Cuba Gooding Jr. recently portrayed Dr. Carson's life story in the TNT drama Gifted Hands [click triangular play button below for a preview]. Carson is a member of the Spencerville Adventist Church in suburban Maryland but will be speaking tonight in Toledo at Savage Arena @ 7:30pm as part of the University of Toledo's 100 year anniversary. Join us!!!

Dady Dartur Day?

So I staggered into my home office one morning recently. And on top of my computer keyboard, I found this note from my 8 year old daughter Lydia. And beneath the keyboard scrawled into April 13's box in my datebook were these words: "Dady dartur day."

You see, I had promised to eat lunch at school with her on the 13th of each month - the day of her birthday in February. And though sadly, this was the first time I actually remembered to do it, apparently she still loves me. And says she still will years from now. I promise not to miss next month Lydia. Thank you for loving me like crazy!!!

Homer In The Holy Land?

Many of you know Jackie and I were in the Holy Land in January. In this recent episode [season 21 episode 16] of The Simpsons, Homer visits too. Primarily so his Christian neighbor Ned Flanders can save him reminding us that all of us are SO loved by God!!! If you have 22 minutes, a wacky sense of satire, and aren't easily offended, I think you'll enjoy "The Greatest Story Ever Doh!" I did. Especially the tour guide!!!
