Middle East/Asia Lose Internet

Number of Comments » 0

As many of you are already aware, a couple of undersea cables were damaged in the past 48 hours or so. This has caused a major disruption in the Middle East and India. Their access to the Internet is not completely gone, but enough to send shockwaves around the world. The United States is all […]

Live in the Present

Number of Comments » 0

As another week passes me by, I am reminded of the myriad of things that I need to get done. There really is not enough time in the world. If you ask me now what I have to do, I can probably rattle off at least twenty items on my to-do list. But that is […]

Importance of News

I was on KSL.com this morning and I noticed that President Hinckley’s funeral announcement was listed above President Bush’s address. I’ll blame this on local reading population. (Note: I’m not downplaying the significance of the loss of this great leader.) What I don’t understand is why the local bad weather was above him. Is it […]

Scrabulous Jam

So, I was playing Scrabulous the other night (since that’s my only reason for staying on Facebook). I guess somebody came out with a song about the game that’s pretty funny. P.S. It’s not on auto-start because I hate it when websites interfere with your own music (as does my professor who blogged about it […]

So, Diane and I were spending an evening with our friends, Mark and Sara, when we receive a call from Carolina informing us that President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away tonight around 7:00pm MST. Not much about the situation is available online, but the Mormon networks are busy spreading the news via SMS and phone […]

Wedding Website Up and Running

Number of Comments » 3

Being a techie, I couldn’t really imagine paying somebody to make me a wedding website. It would be like asking a mechanic to take his car to somebody else’s shop to get the oil changed. Anyway, this past weekend, I decided that it was time to create my wedding website. You can find it and […]

Pistachios

Number of Comments » 3

I love pistachios. They are one of my favorite nuts. The other night, I was snacking on some pistachios straight from the bag and I came across a couple of pistachios without a shell. I love it when this happens! It’s so fun to be able to just chomp on the nut w/o splitting the […]

The Lazy Man’s Guide to Church

Number of Comments » 0

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted anything. Just you wait, I have a few lined up. If only I didn’t have homework. Anyway, this came to me via email and I actually thought it was worth passing along, so here you go: Is visiting/home teaching getting you down? Can’t get your leader off […]

Keep Scrabulous!

Recently, I have been hearing that Hasbro and Mattel are trying to get rid of the much beloved scrabble-like game on Facebook: Scrabulous. I really hope that they do not get rid of it. That’s my main reason for logging onto Facebook. Here’s a link to a fairly good article on Cnet.com. What do you […]

It’s Cold

Number of Comments » 0

So, today was very cold. So cold, in fact, that the “real feel” temperature is currently -4 degrees. Yes, I know that Weather.com doesn’t call it real feel (AccuWeather does). Fortunately, Diane and I are going to a land of milk and honey. OK, so how about a land of oil and humidity. Anyway, I […]
