Baseball Game

So I took the boys to an Angels game and they were excited at the mere view of the front entrance with the huge red baseball helmets. At the entrance, they gave away free angels plug-in lights that got them even more excited. To top things off, the ramps that take you to the upper levels amused them to no end. We even got a small fire work show. Things seemed to be going well.

Then, at the bottom of the second, while the Angels were being pummeled, and my second youngest boy was singing “I like cotton candy, yes I do” for nearly 15 minutes non-stop, things went south. The Oakland fans behind us were getting loud, a group of drunken college kids to my left and my kids kept on saying they wanted to go home.

So, it was short lived, but we had as much fun as we could have considering the circumstances.

Ferry Corsten

This guy is the bomb! Ferry Corsten is ranked in the top ten DJ's in the world, but he's no.1 as far as I'm concerned. He used the lead singer of Duran Duran (Simon Le Bon) in this mix. Enjoy!

Grand Opening!

Animated - having much high-spirited energy and movement……marked by much life. Mesina – my new last name; well sort of new, I’ve had it for almost 6 years now. I was like a woman in a mall trying to decide what fits. I couldn’t decide what to name this blog.

So, I thought long and hard about what I wanted this blog to be about. I knew I wanted it to be about my family, my life, my spiritual walk, and just about anything else my mind happens to wander on. I wanted to make sure that no thought of mine, no matter how stupid, would ever go unpublished. It can be a learning experience and quite entertaining to learn from past views and mistakes. They need not be mistakes either; people develop and expand on previous held ideas all the time. At any rate, I hope this will be a fruitful experience.

As to why I named it what I did, well it describes me, first and foremost (although the “movement” part is debatable). Second, it describes the direction my wife and I want to take our family. A family “marked by much life”, both physically and spiritually. Third, “Animated” and “Mesina” both describe a new beginning, a new chapter full of high-spirited energy, movement, and of course marked by much life. As I mentioned above, Mesina is a new last name for me, and it also happens to be my wife’s last name. Yes, that’s right; I took on my wife’s last name. There is a story behind it, but let’s just say that it was best for me and my family.

There is a history behind changes names; particularly males. In the Old Testament, God changes Abram’s name to Abraham and Simon into Peter. Now, I certainly wasn’t called by God to change my name to Mesina, but it was an unintentional meaning I came to embrace years after having changed my last name.

So, with that said, I launch my blog only to have me be the only one read it…lol.
