Yes, The Vuvuzela Is Annoying

( Fun! )

But does it hit the brown note with you? Poor doggy! YouTube Link

I’m With This Kid…

Chocwit Pooding is the best! YouTube Link In case you haven’t had your daily dose of glurge… So cute!

Kids Are Dogs, Teens Are Cats

( Family andFun! )

This is my offering for Father’s Day. I heard it at a conference at my church this weekend, and as a former kid, former teen, and currently a dad, I found so much truth in this essay… I wish someone had explained this to me earlier in my career as a dad. Please read. Children […]

The Skeleton At The Feast

Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving […]

BMWotD — 1957 507 Roadster Series II

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen one of these in the flesh (metal?) before, but that’s probably a good thing because I probably would’ve drooled on it. Yvonne was asking yesterday for hints on what I wanted for Fathers’ Day, so I pointed this car out. Something in her reaction tells me it’s not […]

Happy Birthday, Pops!

( Family )

Just thought I’d spiff up this post since yesterday would’ve been Dad’s 92nd birthday. Revised, expanded, improved, etc… I got an email this morning from my sister, reminding me that it was 90 years ago today that Dad was born. That had totally slipped my mind today. Happy Birthday, Dad. Dad’s been gone since 1987, […]

Another Awesome Diamond-T

( Cars! andFun! )

Tonight was the first day of the 2010 3-day Automania car show, so the boys & I went downtown to see what there was to see, and very nearly missed what had to be the coolest set of wheels in downtown Sioux Falls. It wasn’t until we had walked through the entire show and were […]

Another Wooden Bike

( Bikes )

The boys & I have been dreaming of building a bike for a long time now, and the idea of using wood for the frame, while sounding a bit far-fetched, really isn’t that far from the realm of the possible. In fact, it’s actually quite do-able, more so than building a frame from metal is […]

Typing Hardware Addresses

( Computers andFun! )

All network interface cards have MAC addresses, a string of alphanumeric characters unique to each interface. In keeping records for the machines at work, I’ve noticed that when keying in a hardware address it’s possible to do it two-handed on a standard US QWERTY keyboard with a keypad — numeric characters are entered with the […]

Oh No — I Broke My Mug!

Crud. My favorite coffee mug broke today. The handle has been a little wobbly for the last few days, but I didn’t worry too much about it, figuring it was only a loose screw or something. But when I tried tightening it yesterday the screw was plenty tight and I couldn’t budge it, so I […]
