Ever dream about having your “adventure of a lifetime”? About going to a far away land and explore the world? When I was in high school, I was planning a trip to Niagara Falls with a group of friends. We were supposed to rent a van and drive up to the Falls after graduation. As… Read more The Great Way Way North
This has been on my mind for the past couple of months, and I felt that I should put it on this site. It’s from the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the church at Corinth. 1 Corinthians 13 (1) If I speak the languages of men and of angels, but do not have love, I… Read more On Love
What would Haikus look like if they were invented during a Sci-Fi conference, instead of feudal Japan? They’d probably have a lot less to do with nature and a lot more to do with Star Wars. Here’s a few that I thought up while my brain recovered from an expedited learning experience: Listen, Luke: I… Read more Scifaiku
I just came back from getting my car’s oil changed at the dealership where I normally go for service. The mileage was sitting at just over 83,600 miles, slightly over 3,000 miles since my last oil change.

It’s Monday night. That means it’s pizza night. Then again, at $3.18 per pizza, just about every night is pizza night. Although this isn’t good for my waist line, it’s great for my taste buds. Love the stuff. So here we are watching a movie and munching some pizza after a long day at work.… Read more Musings of a Married Man: Remember When We First Saw This Movie?

I… Read more Musings of a Married Man: What Not to Get Your Wife for Valentine’s. Or Ever.
Don’t you just hate it when this happens? *Phone rings* You: Hi mom. Mom: Hi, sweetie. I have news for you. You: Oh? Mom: I just found out your aunt Carmen is flying in. You: Cool. When? Mom: In about two hours. You’ll need to pick her up at the airport then. You: Huh?! Say… Read more Pop-Up Relatives
In a stately English-accented voice, the radio announcer continued. “This is WLRN, the time is now 2:45, and speaking of dysfunctional, let’s go to Mike Millard for an update on the roads.” As I listened to the traffic report, I took a minute to take in the sights. I was waiting at a red light… Read more Acknowledge the Green Light
The first people my wife and I told about our plans to marry were an Indian couple we had both known for a few years.
