My First Lesson

I took my very first golf lesson at the King’s Walk golf course after work today with Dan Tannahill, one of the local PGA experts. I got a really great golf package for there from Casey and Kael on Father’s Day, so I’m starting to cash it in. I’ve been a sporadic golfer since college, […]

Do You Really Know Chuck Norris?

Sure, you probably know of Chuck Norris, but do you know “the facts”? Another great find via Boing Boing, I’d like to point you to Chuck Norris Facts.

Almost Ready to Go!

It was a late night last night, but because of it, we have just a few last items to pack in our suitcases. It’ll be nice not scrambling around until the very last minute like we usually do! Thanks to the Internet, we were also able to get most of our logistical things done already […]

Vacation is Almost Here…

Only one more night of class and one day of work left before I’m officially on vacation! The bad side of this is that I am not even close to being ready! I have a good feeling that I’ll be very busy scrambling around tomorrow night and Friday morning before we drive down to Fargo […]

Wow. That’s all I can say. Wow.
