A Macado's Multitude!

Here is how our drinks came out while at Macado's. We had 23 people with the best waitress I have had in a long time at any restaurant.

The Longhorne Steakhouse Review

I wrote a longer, more thoughtful review earlier tonight but somehow deleted it.  Basically, we (Jana and I) had a nice meal at the new Longhorn Steakhouse at 44 Nina Dr (Monroe Marketplace) today.  I have been waiting for this since I found out they were adding it to the "strip".  The service was good but a bit "canned" at times.  The boneless wings were good and my Sirloin Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Salad was very good - the dressing made the salad.  I would certainly order this again.  The decor was nice, but it should have been for a new building, except I thought it was a little like the waitress - a bit "canned".  The biggest disappointment was the fact that I didn't see a lot of "steak" options on the menu which I thought was odd for a "Steak" house? 

I would go again and think you should give it a shot as well.  Then, tell me what you think.

Big Guy Scores

Big guys never get to score. And, playing as a team, that is understandable. But, here is a big guy, a linemen, scoring a touch down in the game tonight.

IPhone Apps "Take Me Out"

I love this type of stuff. . . I am not sure how they did it exactly, but this band used only their iPhones for instruments.  Pretty cool in my opinion.  I am blown away by their creativity.  They are playing their single Take Me Out.  You can see where the the original article came from here.

Giving Big Ben Another Chance

I am not an Steelers fan.  I don't hate them.  I just don't root for them.  Having said that . . . I was certainly NOT a Ben Roethlisberger fan.  This comes mostly from his immoral "escapades" recently.  As a matter of fact, I probably could have been heard calling him "Worthlessberger" or "RoethLESSberger" in the past.  However, I am willing to give him another chance.  Big Ben comes back to the NFL after being suspended for the first four games of the year.  Who knows how he will do - and I really don't care.  But, it is my hope that this suspension  was a wake up call to the Steeler's QB.  It must be hard to live with the pressure he has put on him to succeed and the temptation of having the money to do whatever he wants has to way him down.  Although I wish for money like he has, I don't know how I would handle it either?  It sounds like he has started to turn the corner.  Check out this interview.  I hope what he says is true.  But in his own words, "Actions speak louder than words."  I'll give him another chance and watch his actions.

Sleeping on the job?
This was taken by Jon Lauver, worship leader during my announcements.  I really didn't think I was that boring?  It is Pastor Paul sleeping? ? ?
