We've returned to Texas after a much needed trip to Florida for my brother's wedding. It was a beautiful service with a great reception. We had so much fun.
We met some really great people and already miss our new friends. Want to say "Hi!" to Mary & Andrea in NY. You guys need to load up your men and move to Texas. (The drinks are better here!!)
I will post more about the wedding soon. We are waiting to get our pictures back. I am putting together a 6-10 minute video from photos and vid made during the wedding festivities. If anyone has anything to contribute (photos?), please email me using the link @ the top of the page. Or –even better– if you shelled out the extra $5 for a photo CD, email me ASAP so I can get you my address.
We put up a new webcam today. Please don't ask me, "Why?" We just did it because we can.
Itching for the 4th of July and all the fireworks? Well, get in a few early with this neat fireworks viewer. Once the show loads (very fast — even on a mo-dumb) you can select what fireworks you want to shoot. You can select the city backdrop by selecting Options and changing the city. All this and the 1812 Overture, who could ask for anything more?! Check it out: Shoot Phantom Fireworks Online!
Make sure you select "Tampa, FL" as a backdrop. Maybe Merrin & I will be able to see your fireworks from the dock o' the bay!!
Brian and Courtney's Wedding is just a few days away. (We're just one week from the bachelor party!!) We head to Tampa on Sunday for all the festivities. Can't wait to see these kids get married. They're great for one another. Congrats, Brian & Courtney.
I just realized that I forgot to enlighten you with the latest tales of golf victory. I am running 4-1 over the last five weeks vs. Keith. This past week, however, was really a battle of attrition more than anything else. We played the outstanding Creeks of Beachwood (view course). For those of you who follow golf, all you need to know is this is a new Troon Golf/Greg Norman course. The kid at the clubhouse told us that Norman shot 4 over a few months ago. We should have turned around and gone home when we heard that!
We fought through a very tough course and lived to fight another day. We had a great time and –best of all– I won! Kinda becoming a foregone conclusion, huh?
I've added a new listing in my "Links" page. It's Gaspricewatch.com. This site is great because you can locate the best gas prices in your area. Most of the listings are 24-48 hours old. You can sign up as a "spotter" and earn points by submitting the prices you see at your local pumps. What a great idea!
Do you ever get so bored that you wonder about strange things? Like, for example, what your house looks like from a space satellite? Sometimes I do and –in case your curious too– it looks like this:

I think it's fair to say that a lot of people think the internet is a gigantic timewaster. I still remember my sister-in-law 3-4 years ago saying, "I can't wait till all this dot com stuff goes away!" (I'd be remiss if I didn't say that same sister-in-law is a skilled internet user today!)
For those that still doubt the greatness of the internet, I offer up PlanetFeedback. Here's a site where you can send a complaint, compliment, suggestion, or question to any company instantly. Like many people, I don't have much time to sit down and right a good, old-fashioned compliment letter. Now, I just log on and sound off. Click here to visit PlanetFeedback.com.
I dont think I could have said it better myself. Check out this site:

I've promised for years that I would get the family tree project back on track (and online!). Well, it looks like we're getting very close. I have to finish updating the current data and then we should be back on the web very soon. I hope to use some fancier tools to give everyone the ability to share their info. Keep checking back. It will be finished in the next few days.
Happy Father's Day, Dad!
This story is getting old. Another week, another tail kicking in golf. OOPS! Sorry, just ignore all this talk about golf. I'm sure no one is interested in who won or who lost. So, I'm just going to spare everyone the details. OK? If you just have to know all the details, you could click the more link, but –really– are you that interested??
The new handicaps are here.
