Elves Hack Website, Claim Santa Is Myth

So, I'm smack in the middle of holidays. Thanksgiving came and went quickly...now Christmas is in a couple of weeks. Whew! Sadly, I'm still a man without a country...errr, well...at least a home to call my own.

The Jackson house has been on the market since mid-September...which isn't bad for Mississippi. Up here, that's pretty bad. Homes are sold in a week...two weeks is considered slow. However, I remain true to the belief that all things happen for a reason and a season...God's got a plan.

Georgia continues to grow. I've added three new pics to the Photos section...be sure and select the "Show All" function to be certain you see them all. She's eating baby food now...and jibber-jabbering up a storm. Thankfully, I'm going to Jackson tomorrow and will be there all next week, working from home. Then, we three will return to DC and I'll be off Christmas week. Two weeks straight will be the longest I've been around my two women. It'll be very refreshing.

The job continues to be intense. Management is fun but not as fun as actually working on and coding the site...something I seemingly don't get a great deal of time to do. However, I have a full and awesome staff and once everyone is in the groove, we'll be functioning like a well-oiled freak machine! Wooo!

In case I don't get to speak or see some of ya while in Jackson or anytime soon...a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ya!

More to come...

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.

Goodbye, Allie

We called her many names over the years. Allie-rat. Monkeyface. Georgia called her "Baby Kitty" which was funny calling an 18-year-old cat a baby. With her passing, the last piece of living Mississippi in our house was lost.

Allie moved with us to Maryland from Mississippi. She and Bones flew with me on two separate return trips to Baltimore from Jackson. Maddy the Beagle rode with us in the Honda Accord. Now, all three of those furbabies have passed away.
Allie was a unique kitten and the last of a litter from a momma kitty adopted by a country radio station, Miss 103, in Jackson, Mississippi. A mutual friend and DJ reached out to Kim and me, knowing we were animal lovers and hoping we could help her get the last kitten adopted. The momma wouldn't let the kitten nurse because she chewed on her nipples too hard. One family returned the kitten because the children thought she was too ugly. 
Of course, we took her in. Reminding us of an alley rat - that became her name. Go…
