I just discovered Nancy Blachman’s Google Guide website. This is a great site for learning about all the stuff you can do on Google. It always frustrates me to find out months down the road about a feature that has been available at Google for a while. I knew there must be some place on the Internet that would list all the features in one place and now I have found it. Thanks Nancy for this terrific website!
We had the pleasure & privilege of attending Clemens & Sophia’s wedding tonight and to say that it was a special event would be a real understatement. It was a intended to be a low-key and simple outdoor ceremony, but the lovely & unexpected setting combined with an awesome fireworks display as the couple was introduced by Judge Spivey at sunset to make this a truly memorable occasion.
The reception afterwards included, typical of every Filipino occasion, enough incredible food to last for days. The reception hall was decorated beautifully by Clemens’ sister Brenda, her best friend Joanne, & their talented team of helpers. Alan provided a terrific slideshow showcasing Clems & Soph’s early pictures, their engagement, and the wedding. The family’s enthusiasm and love was evident throughout the special celebration. Click here to see more photos from the event.
Shouts out to the rest of the “Table #1” troublemakers!!
Clems and Soph came over last night for a margarita party on the patio. Soph couldn’t handle but a couple of drinks but Clems and I took one for the team…again!
Sophie has made her choice and Clem’s is the man! Sophie arrived from Manila today and we started her off right by taking her to Rosa’s for her first meal in America. You just can’t go wrong with Rosa’s! Welcome to Odessa Soph, we’re glad you are finally here!!!
Milanie gave birth to our new great-nephew Jacob today. We don’t have all the specs on him yet (his grandpa Richard has been a little slow on getting the information to us).
We just got the photos and his name. Happy birthday to both of us Jacob!
This post is part of an experiment (Cue the mad scientist’s gurgling lab beaker sound effects!) that John Walkenbach is conducting to find every site that links to his post:
One thing that nearly all bloggers have in common is that they like to know when another blog links to them. Using a variety of sources, I think I have a pretty good handle on finding other blogs that link to J-Walk Blog. In fact, I think I find about 90% of them — but I may be wrong. This is an experiment to see how “findable” blog references are. Put me to the the test, fellow bloggers.
I’ve referenced John’s blog here several times before and consider it a must-read. He’s always coming up with interesting links and thought-provoking topics. And this may also serve as a means of getting the 2Dolphins blog noticed by a few more people, so its all good.
One of our fellow New Beetle owner’s, Antoine, has created a new blog for his little ‘D’ that is due around December. His blog is a progress report of the baby and their preparation for him. Check it out! Little ‘D’ in Big ‘D’
Brad and Marsha returned home Saturday from Russia with their new son Alexander (Sasha). They stopped by work today so everyone could meet him. They are all doing great. Alexander was in a bit of bad mood because they had just taken him to the doctor to get vaccinations and blood work done. I was suprised at how red his hair is. Are you sure you didn’t get him from Ireland?? God has truly blessed all of them giving them the son they wanted and giving him the parents he needed.
I just finished joining Technorati, which is a search engine focused on the world of blogs, indexing over 14 million weblogs to bring you the latest buzz on the Internet.
If you’re still a little confused about blogs, you can think of a blog (short for “weblog”) as a sort of personal journal or diary-style website. Kinda like the one you’re reading right now.
Here’s my Technorati Profile.
