Well in less than a year the team is back and has made it to the play offs - what an amazing feat.
Under their new rookie Coach Smith and rookie quarter back Matt Ryan, they have shown the world what a first class team made up of decent guys of charcter can do.
Go dirty birds....

2008 - A Historical YEAR
As we count days to the end of the year, we have to say in many ways this has been a year like no other with;
- The worst Global Economy in decades.
- The historic US election as Americans voted in the first Black President and a son of an immigrant, President Barack Obama.
In all these up's and downs we also thank God for seeing us thorough these times as we look forward to a very hopeful future.
To all my friends in the blogsphere - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Finally - A PEACE PACTAfter 2 months of absolute chaos the leaders Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga have agreed to a power sharing agreement. This has come after about 1,000 Kenyans lost their lives and hundreds of thousands displaced.
It will take a long time to get the country back to where it was again and the wounds are still very fresh and will scar our lives for many years to come. We can only hope and wish for better and that we can all get along and follow the very telling and wise words of our National Anthem.
Long Live KENYA and proud to be a Kenyan.

Face of a Coward....Ever wondered how a coward looks like? Combine that with a selfish traitor and you got Bobby Petrino, former coach of the Falcons who left the team mid-season high and dry after only 13 games in a 3-10, lost season for Arkansas University.
Not even have the common desency to address his team but to write a one paragraph note and stick it in the locker room and only for the players to watch him on TV accepting his new gig. He talked to his players about never quitting and playing the entire 4 quarters and now he just ups and goes???
If that happened in Africa, parts of Europe, Latin America and especially Colombia, his head would be up for grabs... Out there fans don't play...
Well I hope his new employer got a snippet of exactly what they hired on their roster.. A cold & selfish coward...

Funniest Picture I've seen in a while....Hi there friends, this has to be the funniest picture I have seen in a while, below are the 3 front runners Democratic Presidential Candidates...
Just when I was thinking how the black folks here in the US have lost an entire generation of young people and are in danger of losing more generations to come. Older black people in the US are fairly well cultured, very well mannered and speak good English. They dress well are respectable and not at all arrogant - with all these good things they have failed to pass these on to their kids and a spoilt generation has come of age and are now getting their own kids..
No dress code, pathetic use of the English language and total disrespect of the law just to name a few. So my tic toc mind went to work and started to wonder how and when did this happen?? I came to one conclusion; In each one of us we have mutiple personalities depending on the situation at hand, for example when with friends watching a ball game, at home with the family, at work etc... We also have another inner side of us that we really are in the bedroom with our loved ones and many a times this part is kept very close to us..
Many respectable people in society, top doctors, judges and politicians are probably freaks in the bedrooms but they switch this off and behave appropriately in public - in a round-a-bout way the BLACK FOLK in the US have let their sexual side take over and this is spreading like a wild fire being fueled by the HIP HOP culture, magazines, movies which all have become very sexual..
We have turned to our crotches... what a better depiction on this picture... Obama though was perhaps assuming a very humbel position and he is infact one the more polished people in the whole world and I'd say this was just a bad coincidence BUT a great illustration at what has and is wiping out generations in the US and the other parts of the world that take and copy the western culture..
What's your TAKE??
