Midweek thoughts

I have taken a thought from this post and expanded it on my other blog "Seek Him First"

I know it's been a few days, but I've had a few things on my plate, and the muse has been very stingy this week.

It's been weird this week that I've been finding myself posting on pro wrestling message boards, even though my last post here concerned a word-kayfabe used almost exclusively in pro wrestling.

Not much happening. "My"101.7, as newsnomore put it to me in an e-mail, yawwwwn.

Daytona 500 is coming up next month. I don't have too many NASCAR fans who look at this blog, but I am so I thought I'd put this here. BTW way CollegeDJ86, you're from Indiana. What do you think of Tony Stewart?

Ohio Media Watch is currently on hiatus, which is why I put "gone fishing" next to his link. He needs a rest, so hopefully he's getting one.

No third grandchild yet, but he's coming any day now. I will probably have to go to Nelsonville this weekend as the WIXYjrmobile is having some mechanical issues.

Finally, please pray for me as I'm dealing with some depression issues.

You can ALWAYS count on me for a prayer, especially when it comes to an issue like depression. I've been in a bout of that since October, when I found out that Becky(my ex-fiancee) was "playing" me.(while we were separated, and supposedly trying to work things out, she was seeing a 33 year-old guy at the same time!). Enough about my problems-I'm tough!!

You can count on me for mechanical problems-I have automotive experience!!

I'll help you out-ask and ye shall receive, my friend!!

God Bless, my friend!!

You can count on me as well.
maybe I should come down and
take you to Hartzler for some
ice cream?

I am currently working on a post on my other blog on bearing one another's burdens. The muse is funny at times. Thanks for all the support.

Danny, hang in there. There are prayer warriors who stop here.

The post should appear this evening and I will announce it on this blog.

Tony Stewart always rubbed me the wrong way... he was always a little too arrogant, too childish, and too much of a bad-boy for me to really applaud him. However, he does work hard and knows how to win.

Stewart, as you well may know, was also born in Indiana. There are two towns that claim to be his "hometown": Columbus and Rushville. The former was about an hour's drive northwest of my hometown of Madison, IN, while the latter was a slightly longer drive more toward due north of my hometown. Rushville has a nice 1/4 mile (I think) dirt track where Tony still sometimes races to this day as I understand.

I'll be praying for you as you continue to battle with some bouts of depression. Dwell on the sweet promises the Lord has in store for his children as well as the many he has already kept, and that may help you feel a little better!

WIXY, you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. Your blog, OMW, and are in my daily routine online.

I am happy that I have found another friend online who enjoys the media, music, and has a history with pro wrestling. How awesome is that? I remember many years ago when I was much younger looking forward to watching WWF Superstars Saturday afternoon on channel 9 out of Steubenville from the living room in beautiful Massillon! Great memories.

I've been trying to get some dialogue going on the pro wrestling forum on Check it out.

What Vince has done with it now is made what was once a good entertaining product, into alot of garbage.

Hey now...I am a NASCAR fan too. I prefer the old school NASCAR to this new stuff, but I still enjoy it. Tony Stewart rubs me the wrong way too. Did you see/read Jack Rousch's comments about Toyota joining the circuit? Their addition will make for some interesting rivalries, especially since Mark Martin will be beind the wheel of a Toyota.

One correction. Mark Martin will be behind the wheel of the 01 US Army Chevrolet.

Something that may be of interest of you is one of the things I've done this week to blow off steam was to redirect some disgruntled posters from the auto racing forum at Mlive to the auto racing forum at I will explain why in one of my next posts.
