One of my recent projects was to help my son, Hunter, setup a photoblog. I came across a perfect domain name, hunter.photos, while browsing at Hover and purchased it for Hunter. I wasn’t sure whether to do a redirect, or park the domain, or find and setup an inexpensive domain hosting account. I took a look at Bluehost first because I had heard some very good recommendations, including one from James Williamson. → Read the rest
Yesterday our local phone company sent out installers to set up us with their TV over IP package. The installers were great and did a nice job setting up the service.

Plus, we had the added benefit of enjoying her company (along with her new Shorky puppy – cute as can be)!
After church, we had lunch at Famous Dave’s BBQ. Everyone in our family loves good BBQ and Famous Dave’s was a good choice. Fun conversation and healthy appetites made for a great lunch!
Fun story in the Minneapolis StarTribune about a man from our church who built a corn maze with a Minnesota Twins theme. The story is especially cool for our family because three of our sons worked very hard on the project for Bert. Bert connected with Tucker while Tucker was working the nursery. Bert said he liked how hard a worker Tucker seemed to be and asked him if he was interested in working on a job for him and if he could find some other helpers. → Read the rest
