The idea behind wikis is that they are collaborative. Anyone who emails me at firstname.lastname@example.org can get the password to make changes to the PBWiki. I often put videos, to do lists, letters to self and family all on the PBwiki.
(Susan this would be a neat thing for you to use for the church, it could be a online editable bulletin board)
anyway, check 'em out here

My Usual Golfing partner Donnie called me a few days ago and said that he wanted to play golf on Monday morning. He also said he was bringing a German guy...“Why?” I asked him, genuinely confused. I was wondering if Donnie had just met some dude hanging out in a bar. But no, it was a fiance of some friend of his Girlfriend Maria. It was the longest round of my life. We made it to the North Creek golf coarse in Southhaven MS around 10:15 am. After warming up and making dirty jokes, we hit the links at around 10:45....
We made the turn at 2:15. thats right kids a 3 1/2 hours for nine holes of golf. Alone, that runs me about 45 minutes to and hour. Shit, walking would only take about an 1 1/2. The german guy (whose names seemed to be a derivative of Thor) was very meticulous. His pre shot routine was repeated perfectly throughout the round, and he played to the letter of the rules. Which is really admirable, but also, very german. I must admit he was a very amiable fellow, and a hell of a lot more successful than me so I can't complain too much. But honestly, 6 1/2 hour for 18 holes is just a bastard. We're lucky they didn't throw us out.
Later that night..
Ashley got her first paycheck from her first full time job since Emily was born. Man are we giddy with excitement. We haven't been a 2 income household since before “the war on terror” so we were friggin' pumped to have this extra little chunk of change. What did we do with it? We do what most young parents do. WE took the kid to get pizza.
One of our favorite pizza places is the Memphis Pizza Cafe in Overton square. Mostly because you get someone with dreads and a pierced septum to bring it to you. Plus, the pizza by the slice is damn fine. Soon after we sit down we realize that Black Sabbath's album Paranoid came on. Ash and I both are big pre-Dio Sabbath fans so we enjoyed the irony of listening to Sabbath (loudly I might add) while we fed our four year old. By the time “Iron Man” came on we were totally unaware of our mild mutual head-banging and the two of us mouthing the words. “...Has he lost his mind?.. Can he see or is he blind?...”
I wish you could have seen us, I in my brown boring work shoes and super preppy, navy sweater vest khaki pants combo, and ASh directly from teaching Kindergarten at the Catholic school singing “Iron man” with a four year old. I am soooooo uncool...
