Mrs. Jim and I really enjoy the G**co commercials, most of the U.S. does too, I do believe.

What is there about the Geico Guy, Caveman, that you want to know?

You can ask here,
at the University of Houston bookstore.

[super size]

Mrs. Jim, Granddaughter Jenna who is a student there, and I visited the University of Houston last week. We found this cardboard fellow standing there, Jenna obliged me for a picture.

Before we went, we had lunch at the Casa Olé Mexican Restaurant. Everything was very good. All of us had an enchilada plate, each was different.

Before you get upset about the phone, please review these: (link)


1. Lay the phone on the table as soon as you sit down. This prevents so much annoyance to other patrons. Generally you can catch it on the first ring that way instead of fumbling through your pockets or purse to find the machine.
2. Talk no louder than you need. It is the loud cell phone talk that bothers other people. Besides loud talking disturbs others who are trying to use their cell phones.
3. Keep your conversation short.
4. Laugh quietly, not out loud! (LOL)
5. For an extended conversation or for more privacy go outside or to an unoccupied area.
6. Do not make unnecessary calls. A quick check on the kids, grandma, or your dog, and the like, is probably necessary now and then.
7. It is better to call while sitting in the restaurant than driving your car. This goes especially for text messaging (unless you have memorized the key placement and routine--like you did in touch typing).

(Not everyone likes these new rules.)

Today is the first anniversary of Mema's death. Her homecoming was to Heaven to be with her Lord, Jesus.

Mrs. Jim's mother died last year, one month before her 90th birthday. We are missing her a lot.

Some posts with Mema

The second is another kind of homecoming. It is of our nephew, Master Sergeant Phil. He has been deployed to Afghanistan for almost six months. We have been missing him a lot also and are really glad he is coming home to us now.

Mema, above, is pictured with Phil's two children. Wouldn't we like to be there and see these smiles when their Dad deplanes.

Phil and family July 4, 2006, post

A doggoned googleganger! A Jim Bunch interferance has surfaced!

Life can be the pits, can't it! Now this.

My Jim Bunch has honest to goodness googlegangers!

"Who, what, and where," you should ask.

Who: (who are the googlegangers?) Jim Bunch, that's who. Not one, but several. They can be pests but I suppose we should try to co-exist. That's the only Christian thing to do. The main three Jim B**ch's are detailed below:
1. The Jim Bunch Eats. (
link) That's my eating group, consisting of my family and friends. Five of them are pictured above, with Mrs. Jim leading this pack.
Don't they look like they have just finished a hearty meal?
Yes, they did. Mrs. Jim's Sunday school class (it has over 120 members) small group ate yesterday in Jane and Dick's home. Nine of this Jim Bunch were there.
2. Think Rich Club members only for this one (
link). Downside here is that I'm not a member and really don't want to be, so I don't know any more about this Jim B**ch.
I think he sells things, like books.
3. Then there's Jim B**ch of the Omidyar Network. (
link) His activity has slowed down lately.

What: (what is a googleganger?)
A googleganger is another individual with the same name as you whose records and/or stories are mixed in with your own when you Google yourself.
Urban Dictionary definition link

Where: All over the Internet, that's where.
Google Jim Bunch quickly. Lately this Number Two Jim B**ch has been showing up. I wonder how many books he sells?

1. Doppleganger, Urban dictionary: A misspelling of the German, "doppelganger", roughly translates as "evil twin". (
2. Doppelgängeror: These guys look nothing like me, nobody would mistake us.
Wikipedia states "A doppelgängeror ... is the ghostly double of a living person, a sinister form of bilocation. (
3. YouTube link to see the Jim Bunch eating.


Don't you think my Jim Bunch Eating is the best, number one, numero uno?

Adi Can . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Practice "Seek and ye shall find"

[large] [supper size]
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you" from Jesus' Sermon on the Mountain,
Matthew 7:7 (King James Version).
Entire Sermon on the Mountain is below. [Note 1]

[large] [supper size]

We know now why Adi and those of her beagle breed run with their noses to the ground! Or we might think we do.

Well, what do you think she found?

[large] [supper size]

Good things come to those who seek [Jim's paraphrase].

More fire hydrants.
large] [supper size]

And more.
large] [supper size]

There are other things for Adi to find, like trees.
large] [supper size]

More trees.
large] [supper size]

.[large] [supper size]
And more trees!


Then a little rest [Note 2]
large] [supper size]

And more rest!
large] [supper size]

[large] [supper size]
This is more like it! A little fun, just rolling in the sand (trap). We almost got caught by a greens keeper (this sand trap was next to the green for hole # seven).

[large] [supper size]
This looks like more rest. Actually we were home, just across the street. We had come a hundred yards down the hill from the sand trap towards our house.

We couldn't go home because the green keeper might see us and figure out where we live, then who we were. We had skedaddled (definition of skedaddle) before he got to the green. So now Adi didn't want us to be in trouble after the close call with trouble.

Note 1:
Jesus' The Sermon on the Mountain, Matthew 5, 6, and 7.(

Matthew 5 -The Beatitudes
{the sermon now has been moved to (click) here.}

Note 2:
Psalm 132:14
This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

Note 3:
These pictures were taken when Adi and had our walk for the week, last Friday.
