Ah, New Years, that arbitrary line in the sand is upon us. It's the time when one year flows into the next. Some of you will be out celebrating, others will be at home celebrating, some will be asleep, some will be trying to get to sleep, some will be playing World of Warcraft, while many oth...
I always used to really enjoy the week in between Christmas and New Years. When I was a student it used to be a very peaceful holiday week, and even when I joined the workforce I could always find excuses not to get things done and no one really minded all that much. 2011 has been completely diff...
Matthew 1:22-25So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, di...
I'm not sure why I enjoyed this little clip so much, I have watched it a few times and I still laugh at the ending. Perhaps I just enjoy the little fellow getting his moment of revenge. Anyhow, I bet you that this frog could probably beat my high score.

Am I the only person who has become tired of the phrase thinking outside the box? Every time I hear someone say this phrase I want to let out a scream. It's becoming too bloody crowded outside of that box. Apparently all of us have fled the box and we are roaming around outside of the box. It...
Spam was first introduced to the world in 1937 by the Hormel Food Corporation. I was surprised to discover that Spam is an American invention, it looks unappealing enough to have been a British culinary creation. The name "Spam" is derived from Shoulder Pork Ham. 2007 was a big year for...
I have been very fortunate to have been able to volunteer my time at a couple of different venues in the last week. It's Christmas season, and I was thankful to have the opportunity to ease my mind away from business and the more commercial aspects that this time of the year usually foists up...
