Eye-opener

November 13, 2007

Check out this video called “Did You Know 2.0”. It’s hard to fathom what the world will be like for my kids as they get older.  And I thought VCR’s were high tech when I was a kid.

October 1997 – I was in my sophomore year at Pensacola Christian College, and I had been dating Mandy for a month. Wow, it’s been 10 years. God is good. My biggest concern would definitely have been taking Greek.

October 1987 – Hmmm…. 9 years old. I guess I would have just started the 4th grade, and I probably still thought that girls had cooties. My biggest concern was probably the amount of candy I would be getting for Halloween.

October 1977 – I would have been busy kicking my mom’s ribs with about 4 months to go. Biggest concern: bustin’ out.

The Latest

May 21, 2007

Just some of the stuff I’ve been into lately.

Book I’m reading right now: What Is the What by Dave Eggers – I’m about 100 pages in, and it has me captivated. It’s the story of one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. I highly recommend it even though I haven’t finished it yet.

Last book I finished: To Own a Dragon by Donald Miller – Although this is only the second book I’ve read of Miller’s, he’s one of my favorite Christian authors. This one’s good, but it could’ve been a little longer.

Book of the Bible I’m reading: Ezekiel – There are some gems in this book. Read it.

Last movie I watched in the theater: Spiderman 3 – Not the greatest superhero movie, but it served its purpose. Some great action sequences. Some cheesy stuff, but when it was cheesy, it was very cheesy. All in all I’d say it was average.

Last movie I watched at home: Curious George – What can I say? I have 2 kids under 5. Still, not bad for a kids movie.

Last real movie I watched at home: Saving Private Ryan – I’ve only seen this movie a couple of times, but it’s so timely. I’m a big fan of war movies, and they don’t get any better than this one. What a great story.

Music I’ve been listening to: Funeral and Neon Bible by The Arcade Fire – Very different sound for me, and this time different is really good. I had to give both these albums a few listens before enjoying them, but now I’m hooked. Also, Add to the Beauty by Sara Groves – There’s some really great stuff here.

Last cool website I found: kiva.org – This site asks for people to invest in entrepreneurs in developing countries. Very cool idea, and you can invest as little as $25.


The Relay for Life

April 9, 2007

I’m participating in the Relay for Life this year in June.  I’ve never done it before so it should be interesting.  The only problem:  I’m really not very good at fundraising, but if you feel so inclined to donate to the American Cancer Society under my name, I would greatly appreciate it (and so would ACS).  Click here to help me meet my goal of $100.  Thanks!


YouTube’s Greatest Hits #10

We Want Your Soul

A neat little music video that challenged me. So many things call for our attention in this life. What’s really important?


Lesson to be learned: “Don’t eat pet food…ever.”

Woman ill after eating recalled dog food

Here’s one of those stories that make you feel bad for the person, laugh at the person, and then feel bad for laughing at the person.

Listen, there’s never a good reason to eat pet food.  I don’t care if you think it’s going to taste good, or if you think it will help convince Fluffy to eat, or if there’s no real food left and your only choice is starving or pet food.  Just don’t do it.
