Last night I watched an intriguing new TV show on NBC that I want to share this morning!! It is called, **"KINGS". First of all I knew just a few minutes into it that they were taking so many of the names, places, etc. from the bible so this definitely got my interest up fast...plus i love a good drama!!

This is about a city that has just been completely rebuilt. This city is called Shiloh!! It is a brand new city with no litter and completely clean...It is the capitol of Gilboa. Instead of having a president to reign over this new city, there is instead a monarchy...a KING!!

The new KING Silas Benjamin, is the reigning king. He says that he was surrounded with butterflies which landed on his head like a "crown". Thus he starts this new kingdom with their symbol being the butterfly!!

This is a re-telling of the bible story of David and Goliath. David Shepherd (get the name) becomes a hero in this first episode by rescuing prisoners of war. He does not know that one of the men that he rescues is Jack the son of the KING!! This puts David in the exhalted graces of the KING!!

From there on it has a good story!! The fun thing that i had was listening to the names and places that they took from the bible and the way that they put all of these people and places into play!! Just take David Shepherd for example..David from the bible...young, good looking, warrior, and get that last name...Shepherd!! Plus he goes to war against these big tanks from "GATH" that are called Goliath!! I just had a good time watching all of this and figuring out the plan of the show....

Just wanted to let you know that for me it was fun to watch. It is back on again on NBC this coming Sunday at 8:00 (EST). I plan on watching it because i just love picking out all the similarities that the writer has used!! You might like it too!!



Today is the day that Mike and I go to see the results of our x-rays and MRI!! I hope that something just comes out of today to help us both!! I just want some relief and want to get back to exercising again and being able to go up and down the steps or out running around with my daughter!! I will write to let everyone know the results!!

Mike is still not having much work. This just keeps going and going!! We have to keep the faith and know that God is in this and HE is going to work it all out for HIS good!!

Have a fun day in your part of our wonderful world!!

****You can watch the episode from last night KINGS if you go to NBC.com

Prayin' for your Dr. visit today. Hope something good happens. Maybe God's plan is to allow Mike time to get his knees taken care of... of course, I don't know where the MONEY comes from -- but you know God! It will come!

I know it is very frustrating being Out-of-Whack. But sometimes we just have to slow down and let things heal. I HOPE they can do something for you... but if you "pulled something" it probably just needs to heal. Do let me know...

Praying for good results for you and Mike. Keep us posted

I forgot about the tv show Kings. Glad you enjoyed it.

We didn't watch the show. Maybe next time.

I will keep you and Mike in my prayers.

Isn't it wonderful to have a new series to watch that you actually enjoy? I hardly ever watch tv anymore because I don't care for much of what's on there these days. I may have to check out "Kings" though:-)

I'm anxious to hear what the doctor had to say about yours and Mike's x-rays. Prayers that something can be done for both of you!! I hate the thought of you in pain:-(

Take good care of yourself! xoxo

Hi Sandy. Good luck with your imaging results...hope they're okay.

That programme sounds really good. I wonder if we'll get it here...it would be different.

Hi to Mike and hope all is well in your world.

Hope your visit went well. I almost watched this show and then didn't. Now I think I'll have to go visit the website. It sounds like a "keeper."

Hugs,

Susan

So what does that mean - getting your knee "scoped"? What did they say is wrong with it, and what does scoping do to fix it? It's GREAT that Kathy will be there the day after for you! Recouping with her around will be 1000 times better than recouping withOUT her around!!! Even if you're not up to running the streets!

What did they say about Mike's knees?

Thank you for the show remomendation. There are so few shows on that I like so I just don't turn TV on much but this one does sound fun.
