Going WAY back

One really cool gift I got for Christmas was from my mom. She got two really old photos scanned in and touched up and then printed and framed for me. The two pictures are of my Great-Great Grandfather and my Great-Great Grandmother is one too. (click on the images below for a bigger view) In […]

It is…

I heard this read on the radio today. For the full text, check out This is just the last few paragraphs: ============================= It is as precious as a baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes, and lying in a manger. It is as painful as a flesh-torn hand and a thorn-crowned head. It is the reason […]


Well, it looks like we’re going to have a second straight white Christmas!! Doesn’t our house look pretty?? This is a look down our street… Plus, I saw these swans or geese or something flying over as I was out taking pictures and I got a shot of them. If anyone can identify them, please […]

Car and an anniversary

Well, my car is officially ordered now. I got a 2004 Golf GLS TDI as I had mentioned earlier. I went with “Tornado Red” with a gray interior. Should be pretty sweet!! Can’t wait to start getting 50 MPG!! If you’re interested in the TDI engine or the claims of mileage, check out for […]

Stupid Volkswagen. :-(

Well, looks like it’s going to be a WHILE before I’m driving anything new. There aren’t any Golf GLS TDI’s available, so that means I have to order one. Ok, great, that means I’m assured exactly what I want, BUT it means 12 weeks. TWELVE WEEKS!! It’ll be warm again in 12 weeks. SHEESH. So […]

Getting there…

I am starting to finally feel better. The past week has pretty much been worthless though. I’m still hacking up globs of crud, and don’t have 100% of my strength back, but I’m on the mend. Avoid this bug at all costs if you’re able. Yesterday I spent my lunch hour at Ed Schmidt VW […]


Well, I have the flu. It sucks. I stayed home from work today, slept for about 20 out of the past 24 hours, ache everywhere, cough, chills, all that crap. UGH. I’ll try to go to work tomorrow, but if I don’t feel better in the AM, I doubt I’ll make it. These things usually […]

Kinda slow…

Haven’t updated much lately. Things have been kind of slow lately. The football game last week was a rude awakening. Miami is a top 10 team and they have the best QB in the nation. He has proved it over and over again. Their one loss to Iowa was a fluke, or they’d be playing […]

The B!G Game

Well, the MAC Championship game is tonight in BG. ESPN will be back in the house (It’s on ESPN2 tonight at 7 local time)’ Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Mike Tirico will be there. It’s big time! The weather is supposed to be pretty nasty, but nothing out of the ordinary for NW Ohio in […]


My cousin, Lindsay, will be competing in the World Triathlon Championships in New Zealand this weekend. She’s been working up to this for the past 10 years maybe? She’s just an amazing athelete!! The website to follow the races is at She’s one of the best in the whole country in her age group. […]
