Our great friends Kim and Jeremy were blessed with a new arrival early this morning.  Their plans had been to be able to blog and post pictures from the hospital, but at the moment they are experiencing technical difficulties while trying to get their laptop to connect to the hospital’s wireless network.  I’ll let them post the more detailed official announcement over on their blog, but since we got a chance to hang out with them tonight and to meet the new addition to the family (and use our new camera) I figured we could at least mention it here.  So congratulations guys, we look forward to dual stroller outings in the near future!

It doesn’t seem like it, at all, but the fact is that Mel and I have been married for 9 years now.  We dated for a year and were engaged for one, so that puts us together for 11 years.  Pretty amazing.

I’ve mentioned before that when we got married we said that we would like to go somewhere new every year for our anniversary.  Of course, that was before our little plan changer came along, so this year we weren’t able to travel.  Instead, I went to work and had a full day of Dilbert-worthy situations and we decided to go out for the evening and buy a camera, something we had been needing for a long time and something we would need even more in the very near future.

We went to Firebird’s, which is still one of the best steaks money can buy, and headed to Best Buy to see if we could get a discount on the camera we had chosen.  As it turns out, I’m really good at picking out expensive gadgets and Mel is really good at getting them cheaper than sticker price.

We ended up with our brand new Canon EOS Rebel Xis in hand, while saving right at $100 on the camera, bag and two filters.

I’m sure the blog will soon have more artistic images added to it using this new piece of equipment.  So, happy anniversary to us!

Anyone who knows me knows my desire to build and race a car, specifically to race one at Barber’s Motorsports Park.  I’ve had our 1995 Nissan 240SX SE in our garage for nearly a year now and haven’t taken the time to do much too it in that time.  Prior to it becoming a paper weight I had done a little work to get it prepped to accept the parts I had planned to purchase and install, but the eventual purchases never happened.

With the fuel prices the way they are, the little car which gets 34MPG began to spark some interest among family who needed something to drive to and from work.  So, in an effort to get our garage cleared out and help Mel’s family in the process we sold the little maroon car.

This marks the second project car I’ve given up on, will it be the last?  Doubtful…
