My wife and daughter just got home from visiting Kane in the hospital.  I hate to admit it, but my wife got better pictures than me.  Those pictures (and video) will be up later tonight or tomorrow.  I will also post about my workouts tomorrow and pose an interesting moral question to you, my faithful readers.  See you again soon.

Also, it is only a few more days until Kane comes home. (more…)

The winner of the first ever Funny Acronym Tuesday (F.A.T.) was Blessed1 with the acronym B.U.R.P. which stands for “Beat up Rude People.”  Admit it, haven’t we all wanted to?!

The winner of the second ever F.A.T. challenge was Teresa with the acronym W.H.A.M.M.Y. which stands for “Wookie Hippies Ate My Mangos Yesterday.”  This is a serious problem deserving of a fitting acronym.  Thankfully we have Teresa around to supply it.

The winner of the “Return of the F.A.T.” challenge (part III) was (more…)
