Vacation Week 2017!

Well that wraps up a vacation for 2017.   I’ll do my best to post a decent write up on how the vacation went.  I’ll separate it out by each day and what we did. Continue reading “Vacation Week 2017!”

A Quick PSA, Pictures, and More!

Firstly, this is going to be a cross post on both my blogs because I’m too lazy to do two seperate posts, and the top is pretty important.  And, I’m probably going to combine both soon anyways.

<Rant – PSA>

Secondly, I guess I’d first like to start this post off by reminding all my friends, family, gamer friends, work friends, and anybody else that’s in between.  Use a virus scanner.  Don’t be a tart tart and think that you’re above getting hacked, or phished, or keystroke grabbed.  In the past 2 days, SEVEN of you have had your twitter accounts hacked, and then inadvertently tried to send me links to bad things.  Either spend the money and buy a reputable Internet Security suite such as my favorite, and my suite of choice, [Kaspersky Internet Security], or any of the other suites like [BitDefender Total Security], [Norton], [McAfee], or if your on a really tight budget you can go for a free suite like [ZoneAlarm], or for JUST a free virus scanner [AVG Free].  Just save yourself the trouble, and get Kaspersky though.  I’ve been using it for years now, and haven’t had any problems.  It runs smoothly in the background, with minimal fuss, and doesn’t hog a bunch of resources like McAfee and Norton.  Also, don’t click on links from PM’s (Private Message) in Twitter, or anywhere for that matter, that seem strange or out of place.  Especially with no protection on your PC or Mac.  Ok.  Anyways… Moving on.

More after the jump!

Mikayla takes 2nd place, and more!

So Mikayla got that today.  She went to IWU (Indiana Wesyleyan University) which is one of several colleges for the church she goes to.  It’s a program that provides some scholarship monies for kids who place in the talent program.  Out of several hundred kids that applied and performed for singing, Mikayla took 2nd place.  I can’t wait to see her when she gets back.  I’m so proud of her, and I’m excited that she’s getting some reward for all the pushing that I have given her.  Not just me, but her mom too.  We’ve both encouraged her to sing because she loves it so much, and she’s good at it.  Anyways, that’s enough bragging for now.

Mikayla and I

Happy Birthday Mikayla.

Mikayla baby

On April 23, 2001 one of the most amazing, emotional, and important events in my life occurred,  I was about to have a baby.  I was scared.  I was worried.  I was nervous.  As I stood in the operating room I wondered if I would be able to handle the responsibilities that were headed my way.  I had serious questions.  I wondered if I would be able to make the right decisions.  I wondered if I was qualified to help mold and shape somebody.  I had questions that I thought were major concerns then (but really are silly lol).  What if i dropped her.  What if i rolled over her.  What if she fell off the bed.  What if i pushed her too hard on the swing.  Then the doctor handed me a pair of surgical scissors, and I cut the cord and then subsequently held the most wonderful bundle of joy ever.  As I stared into her eyes, I stopped worrying.  The fears subsided for the moment.  The most beautiful baby girl stared at me wide eyed and with wonder.  It would be ok.

Sunday Funday

Today was quite a fun day of running around and doing things.
It all started out with having some waffles for breakfast.  I haven’t had waffles in forever, but we picked some up from the store last night before coming home.  Man, I was glad we did.  They were delicious.  After we got all showered and cleaned up Ru came over and we headed out to begin our journey.

Things, and such…

So, on Sunday 10/14/2012 I went to the Lego Kids Fest.  It was a blast.  We got there a little bit later than planned due to “somebody” not actually getting up and getting dressed while I was in the shower (Mikayla).  It was about a two hour drive, and very rainy almost the entire way.  The excitement began before we actually got to the convention center, when we accidentally drove onto the on ramp of the highway as we were getting off said highway in Novi.  To be fair, it was a EXTREMELY confusing intersection.  I can’t even begin to describe it.

Harro Bloggy Blog

So, I’ve not posted anything up here in quite some time.  Well, to be frank, I’ve posted stuff, but its really all been more personal inflection that can’t be shared because… Well… because.

Whats new?  I’ve been playing a LOT of Minecraft.  The radio station that I DJ at randomly has a multiplayer server.  I started out playing it because of Mikayla.  She begged me to play it with her on the XBox when she spent a couple weeks over here.  She played for all day a couple of times while i was working.  So i figured I would check it out and release some creative brain juices.  Well, come to find out, Minecraft is kinda like Lego’s, and i LOVED Legos. I’ll post some pictures in my gaming blog, and then link it [HERE] to this article 🙂

I’m also been putting together the ground work for a website for my family to use for photos.  Gonna have to figure out a few things though, and may have to make a few backtracks.

I’m thinking about doing a revamp on my blog.  I need to figure out a way to seperate out the twitter auto posts once a week, and my normal posts.  I tweet a lot, lol.

Other than that there really isn’t much to share that’s of share-able-ness.  Wut?
