The Cavs, Nerf and NBA Hugging

Since moving back to the Cleveland area, I’ve definitely renewed my love for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I have such fond childhood memories of listening to the Cavs on WWWE while playing nerf basketball in my bedroom. Hey, I got so good at Nerf Around The World, that even my big brother couldn’t beat me….and as […]

Is That Who You Are?

An interesting thing happened to me last week. I was in downtown Cleveland and after a meeting, was walking back to my car. While walking down the sidewalk, I was thinking about the meeting and not paying much attention to anything or anyone. As I walked past a lady standing near the bus stop, she […]

Me & G

IMG_0020 I think someone just made a funny noise. I’m not sure exactly what it was, but it definitely sounded funny. Oh, and yes, I’m working on the Guiness world record for most chins.

New Blog Page: On The Nightstand

Business Up Front … Party In The Back

Here’s several pictures and a short video clip (with VERY bad audio) from our “Family Night Out” with Family Force 5 in Akron. We’ve seen them 3 times in the last year or so and they put on quite a show. If you have junior high to high school age kids, this is music they […]

Honest Prayer

Prayer is such a challenge for me. It’s hard to explain why. I found this prayer today and although I tend to skim through things like this, I really liked the honor and honesty. This is from “markster” on the ChristianityToday.com message boards: My Father and your Son, as I go out into the world […]

This Just In…

A friend sent this important news story to me and I felt it was urgent to pass along: This morning, from a cave somewhere in Pakistan, Taliban Minister of Migration, Mohammed Omar, warned the United States that if military action against Iraq continues, Taliban authorities will cut off America’s supply of convenience store managers. And […]

Barry Gibb Talk Show

Ok, here goes the first of who-knows-how-many addmissions: I really like the Bee Gees. And not just the Saturday Night Fever disco stuff, I like ALL of their music. Having said that, SNL’s sketches with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake as Barry and Robin Gibb are fantastic. Enjoy!

Music Review: Nellie McKay & The Decemberists

My friend and music-buddy, Jay and I regularly send music recommendations back and forth to one another. Here’s Jay’s latest recommendation: I bought two discs lately – thought you may be interested: Nellie McKay – Pretty Little Head The Decemberists – The Crane Wife Both are interesting. Nellie McKay is positioning herself as the anti-Norah […]
