Cruise IQ

Tonight, we played a round of Cruise IQ. It’s not one of my favorite games, but Suzanne and the kids really like the game. The game is basically Trivial Pursuit but dealing with cruising. The object of the game is to cruise your ship around the World to various ports and answer trivia questions in […]

Internet Finally Fixed

Today was a good day! Finally, my internet service appears to be back in solid operation. For the last couple of weeks, our internet connection has been dropping every five or ten minutes. It was only for 30 seconds to a minute, but it was very aggravating. I have been working with my provider, Sunncast, […]

300 vs 300 Spartans

We finally got a chance this past weekend to watch the old classic movie 300 Spartans. You might remember my post on the current movie 300, and the issues I had with it. I also related that, as I remembered, the original 1960’s movie was much much better. Suzanne, Sean and myself sat down to […]

It was a wonderful ceremony held outside with the rolling hills and mountains as a backdrop. A cool breeze filled the air. Afterwards, myself […]

Our clan has used the same basic site design for the last 18 months. It was time to do something different. I spent the last couple months coming up with […]

Quick Family Update

Today, Sean started baseball practice. He is excited, but now has to decide when to play baseball and when to go to dance. Normally, he dances four days a week with only Wednesday off. It looks like baseball practice will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The number of days will go down when the […]

Rocky, Rocky, Rocky

Yesterday, we finally got a change to view the latest Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa. First, to set the stage for the kids, we also rented a copy of the original Rocky movie so they would have a frame of reference for the latest. The kids hadn’t really even heard of Rocky, let alone seen any […]
