UFO’S….Do They Exist?….Other Worldly?…Imagined?…

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 12-12-2018


The topic of UFO’s have created many movies, books, TV series, etc. and most people have their own ideas about them. I’m thinking they are real although I have never seen one or even something that I wondered about. It just seems to me that with all of the planets, stars and heavenly bodies out there, surely there is another place that can be inhabited by some type life. I would also think they  are ruled by the same God that we are, with the same rules. The other thing that comes to mind is, where is Satan? Is he out there with his angels? Or creatures? I wonder about those creatures talked about in Revelations and wonder if they are real and working for Satan. Well, I don’t know the answer to those questions and I don’t think that you do either. But this is a good time to express yourself for others to contemplate your ideas on the subject…..Let me hear from you.

Thanksgiving ….For Our Health

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 26-11-2018


I missed posting on Thanksgiving this year, 2018, but I would like to say that I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving week and that all of you are well. One of the things that we all are thankful for is our health. I’m praying that we will all have good health until the next Thanksgiving Day and beyond.

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 20-11-2018


Next week we will be on to something else but one thing these picks did accomplish was to keep me on my toes and digging into the football clubs around our colleges this year. It was fun, but I’m ready to move on…Here are the last of the picks:

Alabama vs Auburn….It is always a tough battle, but this year I feel like Bama will let them have it pretty good…Bama wins big…They did….W

Arizona vs Arizona State…Another big battle and it will be close, but Arizona State wins….they did   W

Wisconsin vs Minnesota….Could be another big battle and close also, but Wisconsin wins…..They did not….L

Texas Tech vs Baylor…tough year for Tech, but they should win this one…Texas Tech Wins…oops….L

New Mexico vs Wyoming….Seems like the Lobos have nothing left…Wyoming wins…They did….W

NMSU vs Liberty….at Liberty and Liberty wins…and they did   W

I’m choosing the Texas A&M vs LSU game for this slot, usually for an upset….A & M is slightly favored….I’m going with A & M for the win…and they did    W

This week  5 W – 2 L     Season  55 W – 31 L    Not bad, but I had predictable teams to pick from….That helped…ok, on to other topics…

Well, we are getting close to the  end of another season and the tough get tougher and the weak get weaker….The tough teams are usually 3 or 4 deep in good players in each position while the lesser teams are lucky to have more than one good player is most positions. Most teams are playing all banged up, some not so much. And this week my guesses are as follows:

Alabama vs “The Citadel”….?…Does Saban make these schedules?….Bama wins….and yes, of course….Bama wins      W

Arizona vs Washington State….Washington State wins…yes, of course, Wash St wins…..W

Wisconsin vs Purdue….Purdue wins….How did this happen Wisconsin wins..L

New Mexico vs Boise State….Boise St wins…yes, of course, Boise St wins…W

NMSU vs BYU….BYU wins…yes, of course, BYU wins….W

Texas Tech vs Kansas St….Texas Tech wins…..What, Kan St wins…..L

upset pick:

Nebraska vs Michigan State….Nebraska wins and of course, Neb wins…W

this week     5 W – 2 L   Season  50 W – 29 L

Liberals and Conservatives……

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 06-11-2018


Have you noticed that the conservatives get along much better with the liberals, when the liberals are in power, than the liberals get along with the conservatives, when the conservatives are in power. I mean those liberal folks break into stores, steal, riot, loot, over turn cars and on and on when the conservatives do not promote the liberals favorite programs. On the other hand, when the liberals are doing their thing, passing more liberal laws and raising taxes, etc., the conservative grumbles and complains but seldom breaks any laws….Why do you think that is?

Texas Tech vs Oklahoma…I want TT to win…but this week its Oklahoma..it was   W

New Mexico vs San Diego State…NM has a new QB…I’m choosing them..NM wins….played better but lost   L
