Trip to Mexico

Madeline and I recently went to Mexico with NCYTE.  We had a great time and I kept up a google map which shows where we visited.  Check it out.   Simply click on the blue POIs below to see what we did at each spot.  I still have a couple spots to add from the last day so check back and see what’s been added.  If you want to see a larger map, there is a small link under the map.

New Movie Section


Well,  I finally bit the bullet and revamped the movies section.  With the move of Doerrstop a few months back to a new host, we’ve had a few issues with the movie links.  So while I decide what to do with the movies section, I’ve uploaded them all to YouTube and linked to it from the MOVIES menu above.  

I would have put it into a window within com for those of you who just don’t want to leave, but YouTube’s site is just too wide for that, so I open a new window for you to browse all our movies on YouTube.  Once you are done you can close it and you’ll be right back to our lovely little site.

I may move them back into the site once I have some time to work on it some more but I have a few other things I need to do on the site (upgrade and add comments back in) and some of my other sites right now. so this should tide me over until I can get back to it.

Jump over to YouTube and vote for your favorites while you are there.


2007 Christmas Caper is here!

You may need the latest version of Quicktime (it comes with iTunes), which you can download here. To install quickly, simply uncheck the checkboxes, don’t enter an email address, and click the FREE DOWNLOAD NOW button).

We hope you enjoy it.  It was a bit bigger production this year.  Feel free to drop us a line and let us know what you thought.

2007 Christmas Caper on its way!

Things have been a bit crazier than usual this Christmas season, with work, school and Mary heading to China, but I wanted to let everyone know that our the latest installment of the Christmas Caper is in final production.  Be sure to check back on Christmas day after you open presents and drink some egg nog, gather the family around the LCD, and check it out.

Then check you mailbox over the coming week and you should see our Christmas card and letter.

Hey we’re trying to keep the wheels on around here and still enjoy the season. 🙂 


Goin’ back to Cali…for Thanksgiving

We are heading to California for Thanksgiving tomorrow morning.  A big roadtrip in the church van.  We should have some good picts and blogs once we return next Sunday.  If we don’t talk with you before the holiday, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


My Bro Mark was on the tele tonight!

My brother appeared on the CBS show Criminal Minds tonight.  He played a father of two kids.  The whole family gets whacked to start the show off.  He was awesome!  I’m helping him get the video up on his site so I won’t post it here, but head over to where I’m sure it’ll be posted soon.  He also has some cool behind the scenes info on his blog you that might like reading.



iPhone update

Well it looks like Steve Jobs read my posts here and decided that he had to do something about 3rd party apps on the iPhone.  You can read it now in the Hot News Section on here but the gist of it is that Apple is going to provide a Software Development Kit for the iPhone by February, 2008.  YeeHAA!!!

BTW…I hacked my iPhone again and got it updated to the latest firmware with all my cool apps intact.  It took a while but it was worth it.
