    Latest Addition

    I put off talking about this topic because there seemed to be so much wedding stuff to blog about, but here is the official news:  Katherine is pregnant and due to deliver in mid December.  Here is our first ultrasound, taken May 6, 2009.   I was going to scan this into my computer, but it was already quite blurry so I just used my cell phone camera.     I have no idea what is in the picture, but Katherine explained to me that the big dark blob is her womanly parts, the small gray blob inside that is the […]

    Why I want my own route

    Here are the exact directions (meaning I’m not making any of this up) to 4580 County Road 68, Wellington, Colorado: Go north on I-25 and get off at the Wellington exit.  Head north on the east side frontage road until you see a sign for CR68.  There is only one house on the road and it is in no way labeled.  Don’t worry– that isn’t the house you are looking for, but it does happen to belong to the guy’s brother.  He will vaguely point you towards three dirt roads in various states of disrepair.  Keep driving until you see […]

    Katherine checked the mail this weekend, and in with the usual credit card applications, random advertisements, and various other justifications for keeping the US Postal service busy, we found an oversized envelope from our wedding photographer.  She sent us over 700 images on three CDs from our wedding.  I’ve included a few here, and a whole lot more on my facebook page. Wedding Photos Part 1 Wedding Photos Part 2 Wedding Photos Part 3 Wedding Photos Part 4 All of these photographs were taken by Angie Taylor, a professional photographer who specializes in weddings in the Denver metro area.

    Dish it up!

    Dear Dish Network, As one of your faithful customers for the past five years, I thought I would take a few minutes and tell you how to run your business. I do watch a moderate amount of television, and therefore I feel qualified to give advice to a multi-billion dollar high-tech communications company. First of all, you need to slowly move to an “a la carte” business model.  I would love to purchase the History International channel, but it is only available with a package that is two tiers above where I am at right now (which is an extra […]
