Duct Tape

Yes... I am an engineer.

WD40 (from my last post) is second in value to duct tape.

Two years ago, I was looking for a Christmas present for my uncle. I decided that he needed a duct tape wallet and a book to go with it: Ductigami. I found a great deal on a duct tape wallet - only $6 including shipping. Wow! When the box arrived... it was a case of 20 duct tape wallets!! And they only charged me $6.

What does one do with 20 duct tape wallets?!

Over the course of the past 2 years, I've given all but one for me away to friends and coworkers. Including a friend over in Iraq for 18 months. He still uses it today. I expect mine to last a while longer, yet, too.

Testing again. Hope...

Testing again. Hope it works this time. Who knows. listen

Silent Victories

I'm a bit of an introvert... or at least I claim to be.

One of my pet peeves is squeaky swing sets. Having two young children who LOVE to swing means that I keep a can of WD40 in the minivan at all times... just in case. Every time I get to the park, I take the WD40, just in case, and oil every squeaky swing I can find.

Sometimes the other parents (including my wife) don't like that I spray WD40 over the kids heads while they're swinging. As they say on the website: "we can't tell you what it contains, but we can tell you that it contains no known cancer-causing agents" !

New PC(USA) Blog

After some discussion and waiting for discernment to guide the way, some friends and I have started a new Presbyterian Church (USA) community blog: PC(USA) Bloggers. Share. Contribute. Think. Enjoy!

I like making memories with my family...

And it's a lot of fun to look back and think about them from time to time, too.
