Not much happening

Since not a lot has been going on this week, I don't have much to write about. We did have a good time this past Saturday night with our friends Matt and Stacy Serafine. Ever since I met Brittney, she has been asking to go to a Cougarettes concert. Since they perform at lots of the sporting events she comes to me with, she always says that we need to balance the sporting events with the Cougarettes. Well, I was actually paying attention and decided to surprise her on Saturday night (forgoing a basketball game even) and took her to the show. The Cougarettes have won the national championship the past 3 years in a row and several more during the past decade. The show was entertaining and we even tried a different restaurant out. It is called La Dolce Vita and is a small Italian restaurant on 100 E. and about 60 N. in Provo. The restaurant was cozy and the food was pretty good.
In other news, Brittney and I have been reading the biography of Gordon B. Hinckley, called Go Forward with Faith. Let me just say that we have both been deeply impressed with the service and dedication that Pres. Hinckley showed during the years. He worked his hardest throughout his life and is a great example. We were sad at his passing a little while ago, but thankful that our lives were blessed by him. I recommend the book to anyone wanting to learn more about his life.

Additionally, I am taking an Economics course this semester and have been assigned to read New Ideas From Dead Economists. The book has provided me with some invaluable insight into economic theory and how the economy runs. Todd Buchholz is a professor of economics at Harvard and has served as director of economic policy for President Bush (considering the economic troubles we seem to be in right now that might not be such a great thing). Nevertheless, though economics may not sound like the most interesting topic in the world, Buchholz does an excellent job of keeping the book humorous and insightful at the same time and so I highly recommend the reading.
