Die Hard IS a Christmas movie

An old friend named Assan posted this on Facebook and I found the logic to be sound and after getting his permission I shared it here. From Assan’s post: I am about to settle the “Is Die Hard a Christmas Movie?” argument ONCE AND FOR ALL! Are you ready? If I asked you to name …

Not too sure

I am back and may try to update this blog with random stuff every so often. Maybe computer stuff I find neat. I don’t know yet but we will see.

Happy New Year 2011

Another year came and went. Since we will be having a second youngin coming along this year it will be an eventful one. Not much else is happening at the moment. Just dorking around until work starts again. W00t!!

Another child

Just popping on here to say my wife is pregnant. We just found out today.

My Son Headbanging with his Mom to Iron Man

This was sent to my sister but is still good for general consumption.

Another birthday came and went

It’s all good though. I am now 31 and feeling ok. Nothing hurts yet so I am still young. ๐Ÿ™‚

I want a motorcycle

I have been looking around and one model has sparked my interest due to its low cost and reliability(from what I have read). It is the Honda Rebel. I know, people may holler about a Harley Davidson but I tend to stay on the broke side. A motorcycle tends to have good gas mileage, which …

A job as it were

This past week I was offered a job, after the interview of course. It is a part time job but it is in the field I tend to work in so it will be fun. As I lost my job at the end of January, this has been a long time coming. I can’t wait …

My son is 2

Most people know by now but my son has turned two. Due partly to my lack of employment his party was a rather small gathering but my boy had a good time. That was the important thing. As part of his turning two we converted his crib bed to more of a big boy bed. …

Been a while

Looks like it has been a while since I last added to the blog. Not too much has happened since the previous post. My Son has been walking and talking for a little while and he is doing good on the training with the toilet. That in itself is a good thing. Back in January …

Serpentine belt blues or My Hell is Serpentine

Well, yesterday I had truck problems. For a while my A/C compressor has been having issues with the electronics so I unplugged a sensor so the clutch would disengage and go into free-spin since the compressor was stuck on the ON position. That worked for a while until yesterday. I was in the drive-thru of …

My Son is 1

It is hard to believe that my Son is one year old today. It actually does not seem like too long ago I was holding him on his first day out. He has learned a lot and so have I. Heck, in a few years he will be old enough to go get a job. …

Long time no see

It looks like it has been a while yet again since my last post. I am still doing great at Glacial Energy and keep finding more to tinker with. My son is doing well, it is nice to be a Father. When I am not working or trying to spend time with my family I …

A while it has been…

I know it has been way too long since I have graced the Interweb with my presence. A lot has been happening these past few months that my blog lay slient. I will start with my Son of course. He has been doing great, he is a very good natured baby so far. He smiles …

Being marked

Well, it’s official. This morning my son gave me his personal rinse. My wife, Nicki, was going to bathe him and so she got his diaper off and handed him to me so she could get the water going. I was holding him just fine and then he happen to cut loose on me. Thankfully …

Getting closer

It is getting closer to the due date for that youngin of mine to come out. Of course he will come out when he is ready so it may happen sooner. He is of course due on or around April 27th. I am really looking forward to raising a child. I know it is not …

It’s a boy

Earlier this week we went for the latest batch of ultrasounds and the nurse that was doing it said that our child is a boy. Looks like I may need to purchase some cigars soon for the big day. Also, Merry Christmas. You know, this should be a good Christmas… http://pictures.smock.com/ Go here for the …
