Tess Gets Owned By Hobby Horse

She wasn't injured in the fall. She was just mad that the horse threw her.

We Are Bombing Seeds in Afghanistan?
The military dropped a series of 1,000-pound bombs from planes on the mounds of poppy seeds and then followed with strikes from helicopters.

I've Entered the World of Online Video

I've pretty much positioned myself to be an Internet phenomenon.

There is No Way I Look Like This While Playing Disc Golf

Disc Golf Throw


Sadly, I'm on Twitter Now

Handle: greg_lange.

I'm not sure how this happened.

Results From "The Game"


Cory wins with a 63. Clint shoots a 66. Chris and Greg (me) shoot 67's. Micheal throws a 69. Nels and Kevin finish with a 70.

Seven players is the most ever for "the Game". It was great to see such a large turnout and it was fun to play with my brothers.

Clint and I played again this morning. I shot a 62 and he shot a 66.

Results From "The Game"


Cory didn't play. So, that gave somebody else a chance to win. Chris took the day.


We also played today. I won this time. My arm might be getting better. I threw a couple of "firm" forehands without any pain. I got a "2" on hole #1 by throwing a hyzer bomb with my Boss, an unusual line for a shot on that hole.

Cool Disc Golf Disc Chart

A good thing to look at when deciding what disc to buy.

Victory is Mine!


Around 7:15 CST, the last root was severed and the stump was removed from "the pit". Workers all had a Dr. Pepper to celebrate.

Here are some pictures of "the pit" minus the stump:




All that remains for the project is to fill in "the pit", clean up the area around "the pit", dispose of the stump, and write about five more blog posts on the project.

Stump Project Update 6:45 pm


The stump project has suffered a major success. The above picture shows the large rock that was recently removed from "the pit". Could it be that the project is coming to an end tonight? Check back for updates!

Live Blogging From the Stump Project

I'm very excited to be able to post this update from the stump project. I know a lot of people are interested in the outcome of the project.


Pictured above are tools being used in the stump project. The gloves are to protect the hands of the workers who normally only do "office type" work like typing. The saw is a new tool for the project. It's small, curved, and cuts on both pushes and pulls. It's for getting into tight spaces. The pick was used early in the project to dig the initial hole. Recently, excavation has been done with a water hose, the blue cup, and pulling rocks out by hand.


Above is a picture from deep inside "the pit" (the workers are calling the hole that now). This is what the underside of the stump looks like. To right is a fresh cut all the way through a root. To the left is a huge rock that is going to be removed next. It's thought that removing that rock will reveal one more large root that must be cut before the stump can be removed.

The goal of the project for tonight is to remove that large rock and locate the last remaining root that must be cut.

Expect more updates as need be.

The Fall

So, I'm watching movies from this guy's list:

I watched The Fall last night.

I liked it a lot. It was sort of a combination of Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and some other movie.

It was different, well done, and not formulaic at all.

Obama and Honduras

All I can say is ouch! Here is the best part:

Leftists don’t respect the rule of law. In the Ricci dissent, Ginsburg doesn’t care about what the statute says, or whether the fire department in New Haven had fair procedures. Obama and his ilk are similarly disinterested in trying to understand the Honduran constitution, and don’t care if the election that Zelaya was trying to hold was illegal according to an obvious reading of the Honduran Constitution, and they don’t care about the principle of separation of powers.
