Race for the Cure

This past weekend was the Susan G. Komen 3-day breast cancer walk for the cure in Seattle. My mom and cousin were able to raise $2300.00 each to participate in the walk. The walk started Friday morning and ended Sunday evening. Along the route they walk there are several rest stations as well as cheering stations. I took Friday off from work and went to one of the cheering stations to watch for my mom and cousin. It was such a beautiful sight to see all the people supporting the walkers. So many people have been touched by breast cancer and it made me proud that my mom worked so hard to raise money, and to walk 60 miles in memory of my grandma.

Technology...

Well it has been about a year and a half and I have finally figured out how to convert the files from our video cam into a format that works for Windows Movie Maker. Looks like I might be using the video cam more often moving forward. The latest video is a clip from our Oregon Beach trip this summer. Pretty simple so far, hopefully the videos continue to get better and better. Stay tuned...

College Football is in the Air...


Sheena is in bed sound asleep. So I thought I would take advantage typing up a "real Blog post" with the good stuff. The BYU Cougs conquered the UW Huskies for the second time with their young and talented team. Pretty lame-o they didn't broadcast the game on any normal networks. I had to listen to it old-skool style on the radio while I was mowing the lawn out back. However, the game was still good and the Cougs made it happen. It was nice to hear that Jake Heaps got some time on the turf as well for his college debut. Be fun to see this youngeon's career move forward wearing Cougar Blue.

The next piece of action: Boise State vs. the Hoakies of VT. WOW! Talk about an inspiring piece of sports action. From the first quarter run of 17 - 0, I really thought Boise was going to run away with it. Not so. VT came back to lead late in the 4th at 24 - 30. With only about a buck fifty on the clock, Kellen Moore threw a series of passes to go down in the history books to seal the deal at 33 - 30. Sweetness...need I say more.
