Just doing my part to bring you the latest in citizen journalism.  As most of you know, we live close to Belmont University, site of the second Presidential debate.  So, I went down and checked out some of the pre-debate festivities after work today.  Up above, you can see just some of the important political figures that I met.  I was going to go back and get some post-debate shots too…but it’s raining and I’m sleepy.

Thumbs up from the Prez.

There were lots of people and signs.  But not a lot of convincing going on.

Undecided voters.

Not pictured: Undecided voters.

The Obama campaign bussed in hundreds of kids from the University of Tennessee to make it look like Tennesseans will vote for him.  But rest assured, we are a red state.

What's missing from this protest sign?  Logic.

Okaaaaay. Resisting commenced.

These guys are the best.  We stopped and talked with them for a bit.  Check out their website and lend them your support.

These guys are pretty funny.  They have a website too.

Hmmm....

Yeah, it seems like a lot of people brought whatever-the-heck signs they had laying around.  Some of them were not the most germane to the event at hand.

So, leave us a comment and tell us who you think won the debate.

We’re pretty excited about Tuesday’s Presidential debate at Belmont University.  We were hoping to get some good pictures today, but they already have the area blocked off.  We’re expecting some snipers to be stationed on our roof on Tuesday night…

So...the media will cover this guy by not William Ayres?

Here is a pretty straightforward analysis of what caused our current financial crisis.  It’s about 10 minutes long, but worth sticking with until the end.  It’ll give you a better understanding of how this mess got started.

UPDATE:  Original video yanked from YouTube – but it’s now back:

AND: another excellent video, this one is much shorter:

Here is what Chemenn would have looked like in the 50’s.

Classic.

Lincoln is growing up so fast.  He’s learned how to do a bunch of new stuff.  Sometimes we don’t realize how much he picks up on.  He’s a little camera shy and he won’t do any talking when we are taping.  That’s why he doesn’t tell us what sound the choo choo makes.

As I’m studying for the bar exam, I’ve been expecting some cards like these…

… and my favorite…

Only a little over a week to go.

Take that Apple.

 Yep, that’s Lincoln’s belly full of watermelon.

Speaking of watermelon, if you like it as much as we do, check out this recipie for grilled watermelon.  I made some tonight and it was very delicious.  Chemenn looked at me like I was crazy when I told her I was going to make grilled watermelon.  But what does she know about watermelon, she doesn’t even put salt on hers.  When she tried it, though, she admitted it was pretty darn good.  Showed her.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts + Bacon + Cheeseburgers = 100% Pure Awesome

Now I know what to serve at the Chugg Family 4th of July Barbecue.

Pretty sure these things are illegal in at least a half dozen blue states.  Just had to knock those pictures of me down to the second post. 

[Found here, via Instapundit]

UPDATE:  Since posting this, the Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger has become incredibly popular – so popular, in fact, that presidential candidate Barack Obama has made it the centerpiece to his new and improved campaign platform.  Check out his new slogan:

Better than his last slogan…

To our family and friends, here are some more pictures of our little man. He is 16 months old today. Chemenn took these while I was in class this morning.  And yeah, he pretty much never wears clothes anymore.  He just gets them messy anyway.

Little boy loves him some watermelon.  I took most of these this afternoon at Chemenn’s primary thing in a park downtown.  He did start out with a shirt on I promise.

As you can see from that last picture, Lincoln went up and hugged his Mom right after eating about seven pieces of watermelon – with all that sticky watermelon juice on his hands.  Good thing Mom wore white shorts, huh.

 

Hi.  This is Jeff.  This is NOT Chemenn.  She wanted me to make sure that I made that clear because she doesn’t want to be held responsible for any of the following content. 

I’ve been having some fun with photoshop and just wanted to show everybody what I’m doing instead of studying for the bar.  I’m sure many of you will want some of these images full-size to use as desktop background and, perhaps, to make poster sized prints to display in your house.  If so, just email me and I will send you the full-size image for a nominal fee.*

Here are the some of the originals.  You know, to compare.

* Price and participation may vary.
