Rainy Friday

The Hampton Roads area is currently being doused by tropical storm Ernesto. Regent, ODU, and practically every school in the area has shut-down due to the flooding. I attempted to drive over to ODU just for fun, but I was stopped at every turn as the photos belowillustrate. It's just the beginning of a beautiful Labor Day weekend. :)

View it while you can: Microsoft UK commissioned Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to produce a couple of spoof training videos with Gervais playing David Brent, the boss from the UK’s The Office series. For some reason, Microsoft apparently didn’t want these videos to ever be shown publicly and have started an investigation as to how the videos were leaked. The videos still remain on Google Video, so watch them while you can… they are hilarious!

. . .

Agassi- you are a stud. How far can he go on his final tournament stop, the US Open? More importantly, can I get Becky to go along with naming our future son (if it’s a boy) Agassi McCown?

. . .

Thanks, Elrod, for taking some photos of the new chapel at Harding. It looks great!

Congratulations to Becky on being awarded Regent University’s Employee of the Month. She received a choice parking spot for September, a little spending money, and a letter of recommendation signed by Pat Robertson (you can’t have too many of these sitting around the house). Becky also was awarded the School of Education’s Staff Member of the Year last May.

An employee will go home and ask his neighbor, "Hey, did you get an award?" "No man. I mean I slave all day and no one notices." Next thing you know, he smells something funny from his neighbor's house. Neighbor hanged himself due to lack of recognition. - Michael Scott (The Office)
