I am roughly half done my vacation already for this nice little winter break. Went in with no solid plans and so far it’s really shown. I haven’t done much and now the guilt starts to set in around not doing anything with my time. Spent most of the first couple of days napping, catching […]

The year continues to be cruel to Erin and I. We already lost one of our dogs back in August when we lost Sam and tonight we lost our other dog Bella. We’re both big softies so this is extremely hard for us. It’s never an easy decision to have to let your pet go. […]

Every year I take a couple of weeks off over Christmas time. it allows me to recharge and I often try to use it to learn something, develop something, or sometimes, waste it away literally doing nothing.

For someone that just likes food, losing weight sucks. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve tried to lose weight but I’m gearing up for yet another attempt. I HATE having my picture taken. I have very few pictures of myself as I just hate seeing myself in them. I see them and think […]

For those that don’t know, Erin is my wife. She is not a programmer at all but I’d love for her to be if she wanted to.

My next course I took was how to create a WordPress template which is something I always just bought from a template site. The themes now have all kinds of extra crap and plugins i didn’t want so figured this course on creating a theme from scratch would be a good start. Being my first […]
