Men's Monday Meme - Finally!
Mood:  happy
Topic: Men's Monday Meme


Whew! It has been an interesting past few weeks...matter of fact, it has been an interesting past few months. Somewhat stressful in areas - basically because I don't let God take control and try to control it myself (never works Frown) - but exciting in a lot of areas. I'm sure in the months to come I will be sharing with you here and there.

And more excitement it coming in about a month...the elections! Now, some of you, I know, could care less about politics, but it is fascinating to me. I don't think that I would be a good politician, God would really have to give me a clear and forceful push for me to ever run for office, but, I love to follow it. I have always been an American history buff, and, I guess, that kind of leads into loving our great nation and caring about what happens to our country.

One of the things that really angers me a little is people who just don't care about the United States and the direction it's going in, and don't even vote. Now, I'm the type of person that occasionally watches C-Span and relishes watching cable news (all right, I'll admit it, I'm a FOX News fan), and I have more than once written my senator or congressmen about an issue. I don't expect everyone to be like me. That's not for everyone. BUT, I do think that it is the civic responsibility of all United States citizens to at least vote.

Maybe I'm wrong. Am I missing something? Is there a real reason why people don't vote? That brings me into this week's question:

Do you vote? Why or why not? Is there a personal or religious reason that drives you to vote or not to vote? Is there another reason why you do or don't vote? Let us know how you feel!

Now, especially since it's been a couple of months, here's the rules:

  1. This is a man's meme, so the answers must be the answers from a man. Either the man can answer on his blog, or a wife can interview her husband for her blog. However, if the wife puts it on her blog, she must stay true to what her husband said.
  2. You are encouraged to put a Men's Monday Meme button on your blog. Just copy and paste the button at the top of this post. The more folks who link, the more readers you may have to visit your blog.
  3. You may answer the question any time during the week up through next Monday. After you answer the question, add the address to your post to the Mr. Linky below. If you could, please only add the direct link to the post to make it easier for readers to find the entry.
  4. My answer (if I remember to post it Innocent) along with a new question will be posted next Monday. The new Mr. Linky will be added at midnight Monday night or sometime within the next couple of days after that Wink.

And here's the Mr. Linky:

Horror's! I've missed another day!
Mood:  irritated
Topic: General

And, I missed publishing my new Men's Monday Meme. Ah, well, more on that later.

Anyway, many of you know that I had set a goal last November to publish a post every day. Well, that went out the window months ago when I missed a day after my computer crashed. I've missed a few more since then, but have continued to try to post daily. I'd been doing fairly well, too, when, HORRORS, ministry difficulties last night made me miss another day...after I'd announced to the world that I was going to restart my Men's Monday Meme that day!

A day late and a dollar short again! It's the story of my life. Well, I promise today will be the day. We are still in the middle of our ministry mini-crisis (you can pray about that) but I should be able to publish it later on today. Please be patient!

It's Back! After a couple month break, I'm brining it back. I figured with the start of school that nobody would really have the time to participate but, not that school has been going on for a month or so, I've decided to restart it.

I have some good questions coming up - especially with the elections coming up Undecided! Can't wait to hear what you all think about them.

I'll be posting my first one tomorrow - after all, it is called the Men's Monday Meme Laughing. So check back tomorrow to see what the first new question will be!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls. Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth!
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Homeschool Product Review

And now I'd like to direct your attention to the center ring where you will find the fabulous Schleich figurines. Please welcome...

"Kanga" the Okapi

"Chloe" the Asian Elephant Calf

"Loui" the Swabien-Hall Piglet

"Candy" the Przewalski's Horse

"Lightning" the Dartmoor Pony

"Cody" the Gnu

"Zack" the Gnu Calf


"Donkey" the Donkey

These fabulous animals were sent to the Tinkel household and affectionately named by the Tinkel children. These well trained mammals have been loved by the children of the household along with their friends since they arrived in the mailbox close to six weeks ago. Although these quality plastic, hand painted figures are not real, don't tell the kids! To them, they are very real and have been used in imaginative play from creating this "Tinkel Family Circus" to going on adventurous safaris, running a western ranch or working the family farm.

You, too, can begin an imaginative animal adventure by starting your own collection of Schleich figures. If a circus, safari, ranch or farm aren't for you then you can choose from historical eras such as "Prehistoric Animals", "The World of Knights", and "The World of the American Indians". Or, perhaps you would like to delve into fantasy worlds such as the one created by Schleich called "Bayala" or buy Schleich replica's of Smurf cartoon figures. And, they don't just have animals, but also have authentic replicas of trees, forts, wagons, castles and more to go along with your figurines. In fact, Schleich has 100's of hand painted items of all prices that they produce. But, before you write off these quality products as being too expensive for you budget, think again. The Przewalski's Horse that we were sent can be bought for $2.99 new on Amazon. To see all of the items that this 75 year old company makes and to find a retailer near you please click here or on any one of the hi-lighted links above. And, to find what adventures the other crew members had with their Schleich figures please click here.

And for our next act...

As a member of the TOS Homeschool Crew I was sent eight Schleich figurines free of charge in order to try out and review on my blog.
