We saw the Red Sea… But no Moses

Today we (as in Robin, her parents & brother John) went to an NC State Mens Basketball game. I haven’t been to many basketball games so it was fun to go. John got us some sweet seats and we had a great view of…

I Ate A Lot of Frogs

Two nights ago we got to particpate in a McClenny/Tuten Family Christmas tradition. Well, more Tuten tradition, which is Robin’s mothers madien name. This tradition is one i’m glad we didn’t miss this year. We’ve had it almost every Christmas i can remember here…

New & Improved… Adlent

This past Sunday we went to church, the 4th Sunday in Advent. Central to the message of Advent is waiting. I get the message of waiting, and when i say that i don’t mean that in a cocky way. The word of God still…

They Even Named Christmas After Him

Who said Jesus wasn’t cool? Who said He wasn’t relevant? Who said He isn’t up with the times, or keeping up with all the cool kids? Who said Jesus isnt Chill? (isn’t that the language all the cool kids use nowadays?) Last night we…

The past few days…

Ok.. I have waited long enough

The events of the last Friday have left us with everything from lost for words through to complete anger. In addition to all the emotions, thoughts and feelings inbetween those aforementioned extremes. It is however quite typical for us as humans respond to grief…

Amateur Demolition Man

Today was a good day! I got to go out to the Wilson NC area. About an hour east of Raleigh to help Bill (Robins Dad) work on one of the properties they own out there. We spent the day pulling down, dismantling an…

Nite Rider

Yes for now we are living in the ‘burbs however my thirst for adventure is never far away. One can respond to it 2 ways… become disillusioned by being in the ‘burbs (don’t get me wrong, i am very thankful for a roof over…

Runnin’ around in the woods

This afternoon i got to participate in a past time i haven’t been able to do since racing World AR Champs in France this past September… orienteering. Of course this was on a lot smaller scale and involved being on foot and nothing else….

Why is it…That I Can’t Put Toothpaste Back In The Tube?

Short answer, YOU CAN’T!!! Try it, you will fail. last week i read and heard a story about one of the actors on the TV Show ‘Two & A Half Men’ essentially ripping all aspects of the show, from its plot, its content and everything…
