New Site

I got this new site from Apolonio’s blog:
Philosophia Perennis

I gotta tell you, sites like this are like a candy store for me. I had already been following some of these men before and to have them all in one blog is just utopian. Not to mention that they may even disagree from time to time and I have a front row seat…pass the popcorn.

I went ahead and added it to my blog favorites for those interested.

BBQ Weekend

For some families, having BBQ’s on the weekend is like a religious practice. For us, let’s just say I can’t remember the last time we ever had one. I’ve never been a fan of having a BBQ on your 6 X 6 foot patio. Maybe if we actually had a back yard; it would be more enticing to have them more often.

Having said that, kids can have just as much fun in a 6 X 6 patio as they can in a football size backyard. They enjoyed roasting marshmallows, hot dogs, and just helping me prepare the food. So as ice cude once said “today was a good day”.

Atom Smasher

Atom Smasher!!! Just the sound of it sounds cool. But it’s not just that; check out the actual machine that is said to be capable of doing such a thing:


How is that for an interesting looking machine eh?

It’s due to launch on September 10, 2008. What a date to pick considering all the tragedy behind 9/11. The more interesting and scary thing behind it all is what this machine is said to be able to cause; the end of the world as we know it. I’m far from a conspiracy theorist but my goodness of all the days to pick to launch a machine that is said to be able to cause such destruction as to end not just life on our planet but also those surrounding it.

The machine is said to be able to create black holes, warm holes, strangelets, and basically just screw with our magnetic field. I haven’t the foggiest idea how it’s able to do all this, but I really hope that the particle physicist checked there formulations a gazillion times before they launch.

Some are so concerned about it that they’ve taken it to court to stop it from launching. Time is ticking and it seems that even if the objectors are able to formulate a good argument, the timing is off and it looks like its not going to make it.

God be with us if the objectors are right.

Family Movie Day

A Journey to the Center of the Earth


It’s the first movie we watch as a family without any interruptions from any of the kids. They enjoyed wearing the 3D glasses and of course the usual amenities like popcorn, soda, and such.

As for the movie, it’s a good thing we watched it in 3D. I’m not sure it would be as enjoyable if we didn’t. Things jumping out at you really steals the show. It was certainly a good movie for kids; it had a few scenes that made them jump, but that was about it. It was fun.

Electronic world

Have a little fun at my expense. We've done electronic billing for so long and I can't remember the last time I had to mail something that I forgot where the forwarding address goes. Yes, that's right, I am a tard.

Now enjoy this song as a token of forgiveness to the human race for my tardiness (is that even a word?):

Getting In Shape

Playing basketball came so easy to me. I remember hanging off a ten foot rim. Not bad for a guy that is 5'-9"

I played a little yesterday with my kids and the kids in the neighborhood. Needless to say, I can't hang off a ten foot rim anymore. I could barely keep up with the kids. I'm really out of shape.

So I woke up sore and in pain from playing basketball. If I'm going to get back in shape. I need to do it in a pool; because running and anything that involves gravity is taking a beating on my bones.

First Day of School

I'm so used to saying "first day of school" and talking about myself. But now my oldest son is starting kindergarten. Wow! Time sure does fly.

It is a wonderful feeling to be a father, it really is. It upsets me just to think that any man would negate such a beautiful thing.

Anyways, it's a happy moment and I used to think that only mommy's tend to get nervous when there no-longer-baby goes off on there own. Whatever feeling my wife was feeling, I shared with her.

But you know, us guys don't like to talk about it, unless it's a blog...=)
