Mimi is HERE!

May 31st, 2007 · Comments Off on Mimi is HERE!

Also not inspired by Sanjaya

I’m referring to this post about my boys’ fauxhawks. If you are not the father of little boys and girls, you might not get this post at all… BUT… sometimes when your little girls ask you for things… you just can’t say no… and… sometimes you want your little boys to think you are cool. […]

Memorial Day 2007

May 28th, 2007 · 2 Comments

UPDATE: a small addition has been added after the pictures and I added a link to the P-38 This holiday exists to remember those who have fallen in military service to the United States. It is historically and appropriately apolitical but I’m sure that won’t keep people from trying to make it so and in so […]

Scooter Slogans in Taiwan #01

May 27th, 2007 · Comments Off on Scooter Slogans in Taiwan #01

After talking with Bart today, I decided that I needed to start a new series of posts dedicated to the funky English slogans found on scooters here in Taiwan. I don’t know how many I’ll do… but this post numbering scheme will allow me up to 99 and that should be enough. I might be […]

Book review: Peace Like A River

May 26th, 2007 · 1 Comment

This is a GREAT book. I am saddened when I see such a divide between Christian and secular art. I don’t see why each can’t stand on its own… I’m not trying to criticize people and companies who run Christian bookstores… because they have filled a need… a gap in the marketplace. Why am I […]

May 26th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Wikimapia

May 25th, 2007 · Comments Off on Wikimapia

NEW HOST – update

May 23rd, 2007 · Comments Off on NEW HOST – update

Well… the transfer has happened. I lost my most recent blog post in the transfer and I can’t seem to upload pictures… but it does seem like the blog is in tact except for those 2 issues. I’ll try to get the problems fixed quickly as I have lots of posts with pictures ready to […]
