The Hebrew Bible

David according to the Hebrew Bible was the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel, and as per the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke, an ancestor of Jesus. His life is usually dated to c. 1040–970 BCE, his reign over Judah c. 1010–1002 BCE, and his reign over the United Kingdom of Israel c. 1002–970 BCE.

The Books of Samuel, 1 Kings, and 1 Chronicles are the only basis of information on David, even though the Tel Dan stele (dated c. 850–835 BCE) have the phrase ביתדוד (bytdwd), read as "House of David", which most scholars take as confirmation of the existence in the mid-9th century BCE of a Judean royal dynasty called the House of David.

He is portrayed as a righteous king, though not without faults, as well as an acclaimed warrior, musician, and poet, usually credited for composing many of the psalms contained in the Book of Psalms.

David is central to Jewish, Christian, and Islamic doctrine and culture. Biblical tradition upholds that a direct descendant of David will be the Messiah, and in Islam he is deemed to be a prophet.

David Walliams' wife Lara Stone is a leggy lovely at Number 10

Wearing a white Calvin Klein minidress, Dutch supermodel Lara Stone shows off acres of shapely pins as she accompanies her husband David Walliams to 10 Downing Street.

Accentuating her endless legs were a pair of towering platform sandals.

Funnyman David was being recognised for his marathon swim down the length of the Thames on behalf of Sport Relief.

During the reception at David Cameron’s residence, the couple were joined by other celebrities such as John Bishop who also supported the charity.

The Liverpudlian comedian survived a gruelling challenge dubbed a 'week of hell' which involved making his own way from Paris to London.

He cycled from the French capital to the coast, then rowed across the channel and completed three marathons in as many days.

Caleb to Walmart

In the am I took Caleb to Walmart and to the Library. This is the usual Saturday morning trip that Caleb & I make while Lara sleeps after her night shift nursing at Cosby Germany Hospital in Grand Saline (home of the Morton Salt company).

While Lara, Caleb & Chloe slept their after noon naps, I wrapped all of the Christmas presents. Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

Good bye little wagon!

I made the decision that our Toyota Camry wagon would not be worth fixing and that if no one wanted it by next week after Christmas we would send her off to the recking yard for $250. All in all the new transmition she needs would run us $1000 and the A/C would need to probably be replaced next summer ($1200) as well as the engine being rebuilt ($1500). So to keep her we are looking at about $3700 over the next 9 months (something I'd rather not do... better to put that money into a newer car). She has served us well these last three years and it's a wonder she is 15 years old and sports 238,000 miles. All in all a fair value running an average of about $175 a month including cost, repairs, insurance, gas and maintainance. Good bye little wagon!

I have gained some new skills and knowledge about web design and will be making it part of my weekly reminder to keep putting new entries and new content.

Look for new content; media (new videos that I have edited), intersting facts, weekly photo updates... etc, etc, etc...
