He borrowed a book about welding from one of his cousins. On the back of the book, there was the picture Caleb used to draw this picture:
The way he did the sparks, the vivid colors, it's just all very real. The light colors stand out because of the black background. He did a fantastic job!
Great job Caleb!

Will you purchase a ticket and join us in Minneapolis on September 2?
Tickets will cost a very patriotic $17.76, so we hope you will bring the whole family. Can you image the reaction from the political establishment and media if we are able to sell out the Target Center?
Already the media is calling our office interested in the potential of our event. Over 1,500 news stories were written about Ron Paul alone when we announced our rally in Minneapolis two days ago.
Let's send a loud and clear message to the media again this Friday @ 10AM CST when tickets go on sale!
Tell them that we will not go unnoticed. Liberty will prevail, and our republic will be restored.
Please make every effort you can to be in Minneapolis. This will be the greatest event Dr. Paul has ever attempted.
We are in negotiations with a handful of headlining musical acts and additional speakers that we will announce to you in the coming weeks.
We appreciate all your suggestions, but rest assured, the Rally for the Republic will be nothing less than our moment in history.
In addition to the Rally for the Republic, the Campaign for Liberty has planned three full days of events.
Please go to the scheduling page on our website to read about all the activities from Sunday, August 31 - Tuesday, September 2.
Don't forget! Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning @ 10AM CST at the Rally for the Republic website.
Be sure you are first in line to grab your seats.In liberty,The Campaign for Liberty TeamP.S. - The Rally for the Republic will be the kickoff event for the Campaign for Liberty.
We are developing a new nationwide grassroots organization to keep the message of liberty alive.
Please encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to join the Campaign for Liberty by going to our website and signing up. Thanks!

I know, this is a day late (and a dollar short), but "some is better than none," right?
Joel is now an "old man" as he describes himself. :) Hmm... I hardly think so brother of mine. ;)
Please join me in wishing him a fantastic belated 22nd birthday! Leave your birthday wishes by commenting here on the site.
Happy Birthday Joel! We love you!
You are such an inspiration to all of us, and such a godly motivator. We pray that you will continue to "grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." And that you will continue to have "a defense ready for those who ask you the reason of the hope that is within you, with meekness and fear." You are such a blessing and we love you very much!!

Today we picked our very first tomato!!! Can anyone guess how big it was? (Don't get your hopes up!) Each of had a small (hint) piece of it, and it was delicious! No...it wasn't like those artificial, pesticide-infected, store-bought kind, it was homegrown! Not to brag or anything (!), but I have to say it was one of the best tomatoes I've ever tasted (I wonder why?!)! We have some more tomatoes (green) on our plants...but, can anyone guess how many we have? Oh...also...would anyone happen to know many plants we have? ;)

Unwrapping the tree of its vines
After working for awhile on the one tree, we decided (and after consulting with Daddy) to pull down the ivy off of both trees. We left about 1'' of ivy at the base of the trees and all of it in the tree-boxes. Now, needless to say, our our trees look "naked" without all of their foilege

This September in Minneapolis, MN, John McCain will accept the nomination of the Republican party. Across the river, Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty will be hosting its own convention. One, that will have significantly more impact than what the RNC decides.
So, to get a "head start" The American Liberty Coalition PAC is sponsoring a billboard campaign in the Twin Cities. Go check out a sampling of what it will be like if you're walking the streets of Minneapolis or St. Paul. It is completely what we need, a welcomed "wake up call" for all of those who need the TRUTH!
Consider what you can do to make this happen all over the Twin cities.
For Freedom, for America,

Today we celebrate Independence Day, Fourth of July, Happy Fireworks Day, and maybe just a "day off". A national holiday to commemorate the birth of our nation... the United States.
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." - The Declaration of Independence ~ July 4, 1776
"Forasmuch as it is the indispensable duty of all men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with gratitude their obligation to Him for benefits received and to implore such further blessing as they stand in need of; and it having pleased Him in His abundant mercy not only to continue to us in the innumerable bounties of His common Providence to smile upon us... " - Continental Congress November 1, 1771 First National Proclamation of Thanksgiving (partial quote)
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" - Patrick Henry March 23, 1775
"It is in an especial manner our duty as a people with devout reverence and affectionate gratitude, to acknowledge our many and great obligations to Almighty God, and to implore Him to continue and confirm the blessings we experienced." - George Washington; Jan. 1, 1759 National Thanksgiving Proclamation
Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm doth bind the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep,
O, hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea!
William Whiting (1825-1878) The Hymn of the U.S. Navy also know as Eternal Father Strong to Save
O Beautiful for Spacious Skies,
For Amber Waves of Grain,
For Purple Mountain Majesties
Above the Fruited Plain!
God Shed His Grace on Thee
And Crowned They Good with Brotherhood
From Sea to Shining Sea!
O Beautiful for Pilgrims Feet,
Whose Stern Impassioned Stress
A Thoroughfare for Freedom Beat
Across the Wilderness!
May God Thy Gold Refine
Till All Success Be Nobleness
And Every Gain Divine!
O Beautiful for Patriots Dream
That Sees Beyond the Years
Thine Alabaster Cities Gleam
Undimmed by Human Tears!
God Shed His Grace On Thee
And Crown Thy Good With Brotherhood
From Sea to Shining Sea!
America the Beautiful - Katherine Lee Bates (1859-1929)
On this the 232nd Birthday of America, let's remember to pray for her leaders, her peoples and her land. That God would heal our land! America, bless God!
"And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family." Leviticus 25:10
