So I’m watching the “Big Game,” seeing a record breaking kickoff return, and just a few moments later, blackout.
I’m not an avid football game, but I enjoy watching on occasion. And I’m a big fan of the unexpected. It will be interesting to see how this affects the game going forward.
Back to it, boys.
Gotta love a snappy title.

…much of what we do online today is sharing with others. Tips, news, recommendations, opinions… so many ways to contribute to the virtual conversation. Continue reading
Need something new to listen to this week? Casting Crowns just released their new album of acoustic music, and it is fabulous. I say this with all due deference to Mark Hall, but I feel that this is the album they couldn’t do at the beginning of their recording career.

If you are a #NoCamo reader, you have probably noticed that I have slipped in and out of regularity with regards to posting (that sentence is very awkward, but I’m keeping it).

I take myself WAY too seriously. Continue reading
And now… a serious Christmas message…
I am sitting on the couch at my father’s house. Wife with her head resting on my shoulder. Children nearby. Lord of the Rings on the flat screen. I’m typing a blog post with one hand on my dying iPhone, barely realizing how blessed by God I truly am.
Since we are now on the outskirts of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I thought I would tell the tale of the one and only time I have taken part in one of these sales as a consumer instead of an employee. Continue reading
