“Giving”– What/How do you give. Time? Money? What we give to reveals our hearts’ priorities. Though it is always better to give, you will in turn receive from your giving. Mayhem noted to buy a brick to help Howard High School’s Baseball program to build a backstop, and Angel Hair noted the organization Toys for Tots.


In Block 2, Mayhem noted the PAX had become quiet and not a lot of mumble chatter going on. I take that as a compliment, as it is almost always my goal.

FNG- Coldplay was originally named Snowden, then as WuzntMe realized his birth name was Chris Martin, WuzntMe make the executive decision to rename. Coldplay didn’t understand the reference and why the audible took place, but WuzntMe reassured him, “Don’t worry, I will fix you“.


I usually blackout at this point, but I vaguely remember something about testing a new AO in North Georgia on Saturdays starting in January. No F3 on Christmas Day. F3 Convergence on New Year Day at the Lion’s Den. And I’m sure there were other important announcements that I’m forgetting.
