I was sitting at my desk eating lunch, and my nose itched. I had to sneeze–now.
I was eating a carrot.
Let’s just say, it was a good thing i covered my mouth when i sneezed!

(my wife is probably shaking her head right now)

Picked Up by the School Bus

Posted by on 31 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: my life.

Today on my way to work, a school bus stopped to pick me up.


I know I look really young (and my wife tells me, hot), but seriously…who walks to school with a briefcase (my cool messenger bag, actually, one from and coffee while wearing a blazer?

I thought that was pretty funny!
Actually, the bus didn’t come to a complete stop, but slowed down to about 10 mph before the driver realized that i obviously wasn’t on my walk to high school.

Interesting Quote from Perry Noble

Today Perry Noble said this:

The world is watching…and when Christians cause Christians to get mad at other Christians…somehow I just don’t believe God is pleased.

Interesting Walk to Work today…The Events Unfold…

Posted by on 30 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: my life.

I walked to work today.

As I neared the church turn-in lane, i watched as several things all came together:
1. a slow moving tractor with a large mower–and about five cars behind it–was traveling Northeast-bound.
2. My friend Erin was traveling Southwest-bound, and was stopped to turn left into the parking lot, waiting for the said tractor and traffic of No.1
3. As Erin was waiting to turn, several cars backed up behind her.
4. BANG! Some high school girl smashed her brand new little red car into a car in front of her.

Everyone was okay. It was probably a 20 mph crash, i would estimate. It was about 20′ from me.

The car the girl hit was a high school guy and girl, and they all knew each other. I waited for about 15 seconds, and quickly realized everyone was just fine, and they all knew each other. One of Waterloo’s finest arrived in about two minutes.

How often are we going about life and BANG! something unexpected happens? Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad…but nonetheless, BANG!

A clearly marked building: What can it teach us?

Posted by on 29 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: random.

Take a good look at that building. Can you tell what it is?
Obviously, it’s a library. You didn’t even need to open up the larger version to tell what it was. No complaints about signage.

But take a good look at the building…does it look like a place you’d be comfortable going? Do you think your kids would be excited to go to a stale, institutional white building?

Would you want to go to that library? Doesn’t the outside have a direct impact on how you think the inside will be? Not only interior decorating, but also atmosphere…

What can this teach us?

Smiles, High Point and Time Changes

Posted by on 29 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: New Hope stuff.

September 8 & 9, New Hope will launch a new series, themed with the above faces. The series will explore biblical answers for issues regarding low self-esteem.

We’re doing mailers to an area zip code. We want to make sure every person around us has the opportunity to hear what the Bible says about their feelings, why they are feeling down, and how they can find hope for their life.
As always, we’ll have uncompromised Biblical teaching on low self-esteem.

Also on this weekend, we’ll be launching our new kids program, High Point, for students age three though 5th grade. It will be pretty cool, and feature passports and a self-scanning check-in station (which automatically prints out the student’s nametag–pretty cool stuff). I’ve been working on getting this technology in place for about two months now. It’s really exciting to see it all come together!

September 8 & 9 will also be the first weekend of our new weekend times: Saturday, 6 p.m. and Sunday, 9 & 10:30 a.m. (I almost typed the old times right now–Note to self: Don’t do that!)

Running Injury…

Posted by on 29 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: my life.

I’m not exactly sure what’s going on with my leg, but I’m injured.
A few weeks ago i noticed the onset of shin splints, and i worked on my shins, and it went away. Monday i noticed more pain in my shins. Last night it was worse yet.
So i’m going to be backing off my workouts, and not running on concrete (hardest surface you can ever run on).

Certainly a disappointment, but i need to ease back now before the shin splints become something else, which is not cool.

Hopefully two weeks of pulling back to a 3-mile max will help my legs…I’ll keep you up to date with all the latest information.

My Open Source Blog

Posted by on 28 Aug 2007 | Tagged as: Tech Stuff.

Just a little FYI, I started blogging over at Open Source Community today.

I am in no way abandoning my blog here, but I am getting my techie fix over there. From what I’m seeing in my stats analysis, my readership is more interested in non techie stuff, so I’ll probably not be blogging much about tech stuff here.
I’m sure I’ll still be giving updates on some of my business projects and such, but probably not much techie news here any more!
