Well Tiffany is doing good after the infertility surgery!!!

2008-02-01T09:29:41.338-05:00

(image)
Thi sis Tiffany right after they gave her the drugs!! ha ha ha..... she is going to kill me for putting it up here, but if you woke up @ 4:00 am, haven't had anything to drink or eat...not even gum, and you just got a lots of drugs, I don't think you or me could look as beautiful!
(man I love my wife!)

Here is what the Dr. found out while fishing around in Tiffany:


1) little bit of Endometriosis on the Ovaries
2) Decent mount of gelatinous scar tissue behind the uterus (caused by reverse menstrual bleeding....it is the place that the eggs drop after the bleeding times)
3) possibly a little blockage in the fallopian tubes

The Dr. said that everything looked good now, and that he is hopeful and looking forward to the results that the next round of shots will provide. he was glad to know everything with what he is dealing with, and the results after this surgery are even better for most people than before it.. he seemed hopeful.

Thank you for your prayers and please keep them up!

(I will try to see if I can post the photos of the surgery just like last time, but until then please just pray for us and Tifany is heal up and take it easy for a few days!

Do yourself a favor and go buy the movie, "Once"

2008-01-17T23:14:51.614-05:00

That is right I did not say rent, or even check out.. I said, BUY! This movie!
(image)


I just watched this movie that I rented via Netflix (and yes, as soon as I get some money I will buy it!)

But seriously, it is a date movie, musical, and tons of other words that would describe it as a chick flick, but I am telling you it is AMAZING! You would do wonders for your heart, mind, and soul to watch this movie.
Warning..it is shot like a documentary, and is rated R for the language (it is just like real life...crazy huh? heh heh)...but seriously if you have not seen it... you should not die without watching it!

yeah it is that good.... wow!

Ok and here is a quote from my friend Alan, who is quoting someone else that I just had to put up here!!!

Take it away Alan:
(image)

OK, please do yourself a favor and go read this. It's a fairly lengthy blog post by Fr. Al Kimel about our views of God's love, forgiveness, how we look at sin, etc. He's mostly interacting with thoughts expressed in a book by Dominican theologian Fr. Herbert McCabe. I've added a new book to my wish list now. Good stuff. It will be challenging for some to read, but it's good.

I snagged this particular quote from Fr. Alvin's post, just to wet the appetite...
"It is very odd that people should think that when we do good God will reward us and when we do evil he will punish us. I mean it is very odd that Christians should think this, that God deals out to us what we deserve. … I don't believe in God if that's what he is, and it is very odd that any Christian should, since there is so much in the gospels to tell us differently. You could say that the main theme of the preaching of Jesus is that God isn’t like that at all" (God, Christ and Us, p. 11)

========================

AMEN! I used this quote today, and it was for me... thank you God for not giving me something that I think I deserve! You are THE God I serve...not matter the circumstance! Amen!

Oh and BTW: Alan has just started his own graphic Design company..so if you need anything like that (web design, or business cards, or print material, or logos...he is your man)! Go give this guy some money so he can feed his family! Thanks! and God bless yall!



my dad is doing well!!!

2007-12-31T19:02:38.579-05:00

thanks for your prayers!!! The dr. Did a second colonscopy and found the bleeding had stopped and that the origional bleeding (2 liters worth) was caused by diverticultis and that he just needed to eat red meat to get his blood counts higher, and to just eat a high fiber diet!!! So, a very happy new year to everyone!!! Thanks yall for your prayers and thoughts!!!



problems for my daddy! He needs your prayers!!

2007-12-30T16:37:17.441-05:00

please pray for my father!!!

Last night we all went out to eat and on the way back we stopped at a Kroger. My dad went to use the bathroom, came back to the car, and told me he had a lot if blood in his stool. He then told me he probably needed to go to the emergency room. He told me to drive to the house and then maybe go to the emergency room. Well, on our way to the house he blacked out for 5-6 seconds, came to, and then started to sweat like crazy! We immediatly went to the emergency room, and he was admitted to the hospital last night @ 1:30 am.

So, now they are saying he will have a second colonoscopy (the first one was 12 days ago and they took two small polyps, (they did not think anything of them) today if the medican will fast enough you clean him out, and if not, then they will do it tomorrow very late.....

So, we as not sure exactly what is going on, but they want to go in there and find out where the bleeding is coming from.....

So yeah..... Please pray!!!! Love yall!

oh, and I baptized my little cousin this morning! It went well, except that my dad could not be there.



Merry Christmas! and Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

I miss birthday parties @ my Nanaw's house! Because every time anyone had a Birthday at my Nanaw's house, the birthday person always got money under their dinner plate, under their water glass, or even rolled up in the napkin! But the cool thing was that EVERYONE @ the table got money, not only the birthday person!!! So, I loved it when ANYONE had a birthday! ha ha ha...

but you know, it is like that with Christ. Here we all come to celebrate his birthday, and yet, when we show up, it is he that has these amazing gifts of love, acceptance, peace, joy, and grace! Everyone @ the party who knows him well enough to come (or even if you were just invited by a friend, he still gives you a gift! Everyone is blessed at this party!

So, welcome to the party! Happy birthday Jesus! And hey what did you get @ Jesus' Birthday party? I think this year I got a huge lump of love and grace!

Hey! Let me see what you got! Oh, and as you would guess, Jesus desires for you to not just keep the gift he gives, but to give it away to all those who decided not to come to his party!

Love yall! Merry Christmas!

2007-12-18T14:42:23.346-05:00

We are delighted to continue our journey through Middle Earth. I also want to thank Harry Sloan and our new friends at MGM for helping us find the common ground necessary to continue that journey.”“Peter Jackson has proven himself as the filmmaker who can bring the extraordinary imagination of Tolkien to life and we full heartedly agree with the fans worldwide who know he should be making ‘The Hobbit,’” said Sloan, MGM’s Chairman and CEO.

The Trilogy’s production was also unprecedented at the time.This is VERY GREAT NEWS!!!! I hope you share in my excitement! Funny that I just mentioned the Hobbit in my last post and then this today!!![...]



round 2..... & no baby

2007-12-17T19:58:06.227-05:00

well, no luck or joy in the second round of attempted baby making with shots!!! @$:/-@$$"&$"&?!!@"&;;!!!!

it is very difficult! For me & tiffany, but I will live a life of thanks in the midst of live or death! It just makes it a little mire difficult to celebate God as a baby this time of year, heh. My heart breaks, & it kills me to see my wife's heart ache just as deep as mine.

Next step is to have Tiffany go through a second round of surgery to clear anything that might be causing the lack of fertility, I am sure that will come after Christmas, so thank you for your prayers and thoughts! Please keep them coming! Please.



The Golden Compass the movie reviewed...

2007-12-17T00:38:28.065-05:00

Well I went the last week to go see The Golden Compass...and I have a 5 word review for it......you ready? wait for it....wait for it....wait for it.....I'd rather see The Hobbit!!!!!I mean come on... just give up on the Lord of the Rings wanna bees and just give the people what they desire THE HOBBIT!!!!!!------------------------------------Oh well, the movie was good the CG was very good, (still no as good as I Am Legend), but the best part of the movie was the story plot of the polar bears! That part was awesome...the end fight scene... was something that I expected to occur in the middle...it did not give the feeling of a HUGE battle (that The Lord of the Rings did VERY well) and the ending was just arrogant in my opinion..... it was like they made the movie and they just told the movie producers to cough up the money for the next two...and assumed they would do well in the theaters enough to prove that they could... this ending was just flat out not as good as it could have been and I was just disappointed!OK, now on to the other thoughts of the movie being anti-Christian....(side note... I have not read the books!!!)Well, yes, I can see how the Magisterium could represent the roman catholic church (or church in general) and I can see how an ignorant individual could see and say the things that he was hinting at... for example, in the first century people believed that Christians were cannibals...why you may ask...well if you over heard someone say, "This bread is the body of Christ and this wine is the blood of Christ.... and then people are eating them and drinking them!!!! Yeah I can see how people would think that, but if someone knew they would know that those things were a modified passover, a meal with tons of meaning and remembrance...just like the bread and wine were remembrance items in a meal with tons of meaning!OK, so when someone says, "you must die to yourself and raise with Christ"... I could VERY easily see that someone would think that we were crazy, and then we tell our youth to do the same, and yeah most people would say that there is some brainwashing going on.And when someone gives into the false battle between science and faith, then normal and Christian people would say you had to pick a side, and since faith is not measurable, then it would be thrown out as ignorance....And you take these understandings along with the true ignorance of the church in the past (i.e. the crusades, and countless other stupid things that human beings who have misrepresented their God) and you get one persons understanding of the church...and a horrible viewpoint of it!So, here are a few thoughts:1. don't expect a normal person (non-Christian) to act, speak, look, or even slightly resemble a Christian..and this goes for their books or movies as well. STOP being pissed at them and start loving them and developing a relationship with them.2. If you don't want your child to go see this movie, then don't take them, but please do the rest of the church a favor and stop judging anyone who believes differently.....trust me that is God's responsibility, and I bet he can handle it.3. Why not try to go to a movie that you disagree with with the intention and purpose of striking up a conversation with someone that you can love and care for and possibly realize that they may be blessing you more than you are blessing them.4. Realize that Christ disagreed with several people, and he never stopped loving them! Even those that he ran out of the temple! (why can't the church or those who cal themselves Christians actually live it, and start loving others, each other, and why not start taking care of the environment, or at least your neighborhood or city!5. What if someone would have sat down with the writer of these books and got to k[...]



Merry Christmas 2007....The second round....and Munchkin!!!

2007-12-08T23:37:38.899-05:00

(image)

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Here is a picture of our Christmas tree this year. The Halo helmet I stole form a story in Digg.com, but the gender of the tree was all me...thanks to the help of Tiffany's favorite store Michael's! When I saw those balls I knew exactly what I had in mind for them! oh yeah!

====================
(image) Here is the final picture of the aftermath after a game of Munchkin (I think on Tiffany's Birthday) I love this game, but I never win at it..and I did this time, so here is all my cards and the final 10 level on the dice! Oh man it was a great day!

===============================================

(image) And last but never least is the note that Tiffany was artificially inseminated Friday...so here we go on the second round of trying to make a Baby! I try to make it a fun time when we go, so this time instead of walking into the Dr.'s office with the plain brown paper bag containing my "deposit for the bank of Tiffany" I decided that I would spruce it up a little bit and give it a little Starbucks packaging. I can't tell you how many people asked me if I brought them Starbucks.. i tried to tell them that they probably did not want what was in the bag, ha ha ha ha.... but come to find out the Dr. loves Starbucks and gave me a high five when he found out what we had done! I made everyone smile, and that is exactly what the Dr. ordered for that day since it is our second round...so here is the pea for you all to please pray for us, and that if this is what god desires for us to do/have...then please pray for us and the possible future baby! Thanks and God bless yall!!!! KUTPs!!!



well no baby this time around....

2007-11-25T10:34:22.350-05:00

Hey every one. Tiffany started her cycle yesterday so we will not be having a baby this time around. Please keep us in your prayers! Thanks & God bless you



Just a few photos from my iPhone for your enjoyment....

2007-11-19T23:31:27.480-05:00

Well, life has been going along wonderfully as of late! Tons of stuff going on, but nothing is new there. heh.... Well, I thought that I would send yall some photos of what has been going on , and even though it kills me to not use my Nikon D40 camera to take them...the iPhone does OK in a pinch...but I tell ya once you go digital SLR you don't go back.....anyway... here is a picture of Sushi! Wow...talk about flexible...and VERY funny!OK this next photo is of a friend of mine, but is what what is around him that makes my wife AMAZING!!!! let me explain, a friend of mine Scott, whom I shoot pictures with once a month in Cinci, was asked (or maybe he requested...not sure, but) has lots of his photos up on display @ his local Starbucks! I went yesterday and saw them...and Dang it was awesome!...anyway, I told the friend's of mine @ Starbucks, that I would love that someday, and Tiffany heard me say it...so Tiffany contacts the lady that allows them to be up and all, and while I went to go watch Beowolf!! (yeah it was awesome!) Tiffany and Kelly went and printed several of their favorite photos and framed them and put them up @ Starbucks in Crestview Hills!!!! And then we went to go eat and then Court and Kelly went with us there to go play Munchkin (and I did not think anything of it until I looked over to the wall, past a great singing guy with a guitar, and noticed one of my photos hanging on the wall where they put local artists' work up. And my first thought was, "I can't believe that someone stole my photo off of Flickr and had the guts to print it up and frame it and call it their own!", and then I noticed the picture next to that one was mine as well, and then the one next to that one, and I looked @ Tiffany, and she smiled and gave me a hug, and that is when I noticed that Tiffany for my Birthday (tomorrow) she printed off and framed several of her and others' favorite photos and put them up in the store. She contacted the store artist relations, etc...and got the permission! Unbelievable! I just could not believe it... I never thought anyone would ever think that my photos would be good enough to put up somewhere, and it was all my AMAZING WONDERFUL wife's idea! Man I love her!!! Dang... so here is the surprise friend Thor modeling in front of my photos!! (Man, I can't believe you were there Thor!! Crazy!)And for those of you who don't know Tiffany and I are trying the fertility shots to try to have a baby, and after three rounds of this we will just adopt, but we (well she took them...I administered them) and Tiffany was inseminated last Wednesday! So, now we wait, if she does not have a "menstrual cycle" in two weeks then we go back into the Dr. and they take a blood sample pregnancy test. So far everything has gone wonderfully, and Tiffany has been have tons of pregnancy systems, but we both think that it is just the shots/meds....but it sure is hard not to get your hopes up!!!!! All I could ever do is ask for all of yall to be praying for us!if you want to read Tiffany's thoughts...then go to her blog here!--------------------So, for all of this to work, I have to go make a deposit, and then they take "my boys" (my deposit) and put it into the bank of Tiffany....well, I have to say that the room that I make my deposit in is sure a little weird. Here is the photo of the room, with a couch, TV, and you can even see my (empty) deposit cup on the table in the back there...but the next photo is what is funny.....This next framed picture was the only picture in the room, and look at what it was.... an arial photo of an Ohio State football game... I guess some guys just get excited about looking at a football game... ha ha ha ha ha ha.....[...]

Project Offset...is still alive....

2007-10-31T23:07:33.410-05:00

Probably my most anticipated game second only to Y's book I and II in my mind is a new game in developement tentatively called, Project Offset.

I LOVE Fantasy books, Movies, and games! The Lord of The Rings is probably the greatest Fantasy books of all time..and I am a purest. no guns or lazes should ever enter these worlds, that is sci-fi and it should stay in sci-fi, but good Fantasy has magical creatures, magic, multiple races (i.e. elves, dwarfs, humans, halflings, etc.. no guns, gun powder, lasers, space ships, light bulbs, etc...) So, needless to say that is why I loved D&D growing up, and loved TLOTR, and loved most RPGs for games, but now that I am enjoying FPS's (i.e. Halo, BioShock, etc..) I am dreaming for there to be a really good game that is pure Fantasy, and like The lord Of The Rings movies...done right! Well, if any of yall think that sounds good, I have the game for you and it is probably 3-5 years away, heh... nah I just have no idea how long it will be until it comes out..but the code name for the project right now is:

Project Offset...and if you have not seen the videos of it..then you are missing out...so here is what you need to do:

Go to the Website and read all about the story and concept:

www.ProjectOffset.com


Then check out some of the screen shots:
(image)
http://www.projectoffset.com/screenshots.php

Then go find the videos:

http://www.projectoffset.com/videos.php

(object) (embed)
This Video says PS3, but that has not ever been confirmed yet...so it is still up in the air..and this video does not do it justice, being on You Tube...but it will do...anyway..have fun.

And then go tell the world and beg all gaming companies to make this game come to light! PLEASE I BEG OF YOU!

Hope your Halloween went well, and I will be sure to upload a few shots of my pumpkins with them glowing from the inside, heh. God bless yall!



Happy Halloweeen....

2007-10-31T15:50:23.002-05:00

Well for those who don;'t know, I love carving pumpkins. It is a form of art, plus it allows me to express my geek in pumpkin form...so I wanted to share with yall what I did this year:

(image) on the left is the power button on the front of every Xbox 360...
on the right in the logo for Halo 3 the most popular video game for the Xbox 360.

Now, I just need to find green glow sticks for the Xbox 360 power button, and possibly blue L.E.D.s for the Halo3 one, heh.

Yall have a great night...loving on Children...just like Christ would.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."



God decided Tiffany and I needed a Sabbatical...

2007-10-30T13:27:03.217-05:00

(image)

R.I.P. Xbox360 and T.V.....well until you both get fixed, heh.


Well, the T.V. repair guy came over to our house today to pick up my TV to find out what is wrong with it...and for those of you in the know...that is a huge deal for me...AND my Xbox 360 is not sending out ANY video at all...so that is dead too. so that means it will be lots of quality time with my wife (more than usual) and lots of computer/reading/photography/podcasting!!! Woo hoo!

anyway... it is just a little frustrating. Because I was wanting to buy a new TV this year of after the Super bowl next year (when all the TV sales happen) But that would require that I sell the current TV I have as well as a few other things..but anyway... I guess I just wanted to let out the cry of not being able to enjoy my materialism! heh.

God bless yall, and pray for me to listen to God during this time and enjoy life without a TV for a while...it is a blessing in disguise, I just need to see it. Thanks and God bless yall!



I got Leopard (Max OS update)....and now I am scared....

2007-10-27T10:36:49.003-05:00

Well, I purchased Le0pard for my Mac Book pro yesterday, primarily for the (Time Machine) backup feature that will allow me to back up everything on to a hard drive, and be able to find it depending on the last time I remembered having it..very cool stuff, if you want to see what I am talking about then go to apple's website and you can see.

I also, loved chatting with Kevin this morning, with a roller coaster going on behind me:


(image)

heh...anyway... so I registered online with Leopard, and I got this email from Apple:


(image) So, needless to say, I am very happy so far with Leopard...but I am sorry that Smiley face gives me the creeps! It is almost like, "ha ha... got your number sucker!"

Anyway, hope yall have a great day today!

I received an email from Emergent the other day and it had a quote from an interview Brad Pitt did with Bishop Desmond Tutu... I just wanted to share it with yall....

The interview starts with Tutu explaining the
African concept of ubuntu...

Brad Pitt: What is this concept of
ubuntu I keep reading about?

Tutu: "Ubuntu is the essence of
being human [...] we say a person is a person
through other persons. You can't be a human
in isolation. You are human only in
relationships. [...] So we say that 'I need
you to be all of who you are in order for me
to be all that I am.' Because no human being
is totally self-sufficient. In fact, a
self-sufficient human being is subhuman."
[...] If you want to be human, we are not
going to be able to be human in isolation.
It will be that we are human together."


What do you think about this understanding of "Ubuntu"?

oh and yes, this just so happens to be a Linux operating system as well, heh ... never knew the history behind the word, and what an awesome name sake for an open source operating system!
