Well, it has been awhile, mostly because I have had a lot of things I have wanted to say, and not enough time to say them. (don't bother reminding me, I know the last was a run on sentence, in fact, I think this is a great day for run on sentences, but I will try to hold back) For now, I will just tell the world about the objects I got for Christmas. I think I am doing it just for remembrance' sake, but any accusation of bragging would probably be justified.

Airsoft Gun.
2000 Airsoft BB's.
"There are no Electrons, Electronics for Earthlings," I am now a hopeless convert to the Little Greenies theory.
"Hydrogen, Hot Stuff, Cool Science" It looks interesting, but I haven't really started yet.
"The Geocaching Handbook"
"The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam"
"The Arabic Alphabet" Nice little book on Arabic letters, handwriting, vowel marks and other things I have been wanting to know for awhile.

The first two are keeping me active. But with the first, second and last books I expect to learn about as much in the last few days of this year as I did in the entire last semester. So, my bragging ends somewhere around the period.

I have thought that there are a lot of toy trucks in our house for awhile, but I haven't really known the actual number. So, when Mom asked me to help organize the playroom, I decided to find the answer. I began by moving any trucks I could find into my bedroom. It wasn't long before Caleb came in and seated himself in front of this assortment. But, being the calm kid that he is, he didn't move at all when I brought in even more trucks. So, we ended up with a Caleb surrounded by trucks, a situation that didn't concern him in the least. When the task was nearing completion, Dad glanced in, saw the pile, and asked Mom if she thought we had enough. She replied in the negative, and therefore was asked to take a peak. She was quite surprised, and I don't think any new toy trucks will find their way into our house for quite awhile.

America's Current International Strategy makes for some interesting reading. I never knew that we actually have one.
