      Medium rare steak for the win!!!

    • C Michael Patton

      I meant 32 MPG not MPH (although it does not go much over 32 mph). – [Corrected. – ed.]

    • Kealoha

      Too much church songs, I can relate to that one. Maybe it’s just me but the church I am going to now plays songs I’ve never heard of, I guess the old time songs just don’t happen anymore, and I’m young saying I miss the more traditional tunes I’m used to.

    • bethyada

      What foods do you dislike? Onions and Rye Bread

      I take it you mean onions by themselves? One uses significant amount of onions to make a good curry, and we couldn’t want a world without curry. It is one of the major food groups in Paradise!

      14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?

      Twice as much glass as needed. (Engineers see things differently)

    • Cadis

      Hamburger should not be an option for pizza toppings.

      Why whine about what Patton does with HIS blog/go preach Jesus.

    • Daniel

      I hear ya on the Steve Austin thing! For me, it was him and James West.

    • Jay

      I see Dr. Foltz is back from his sabbatical at the inquisitions.
      Welcome back Doc, I missed your insight.

    • dwight

      Great, the type of stuff we get on Facebook is now invading this blog. Maybe it has officially “jumped the shark”.

    • Marvin the Martian

      Lighten up dwight.

    • Chris Skiles

      Favorite fast food: Have you tried “Steak and Shake”?

    • Tyler

      24, Battlestar Galactica, and LOST for the win!

      steak, too.

      but I love lots of church songs…music major…yeah…haha

      1: You Go to bed at 2a.m. and get up at 7:30? I so very much appreciate hearing that (esp. this a.m.) It’s nice to share the pain!
      4: You know that God Himself produces 24!
      5&15: I’ve traveled so much that, like you, I feel at home anywhere. In the profound words of Rosanne Rosanadana: “Wherever you go, there you are”. But Frisco, Texas?!? My choice of a place to retire is Guilin, China. The existence of God can simply not be denied in the midst of such natural beauty.
      13: Credo House? Now you’re just being self-serving 🙂
      And 42 (about what sucks about blogging: Amen!!!–And I fear I’ll discover this truth again with this post!)
      Thank you, Michael. Can’t imagine what the world would be without you. I hope your face hurts from smiling all day today!
      🙂 Richard
