Vowing to run

Okay I could make a bunch of excuses. The layoff, the long unemployment, stress of locating employment that wasn't as near as financially rewarding...

But it's all just excuses.

I was overweight before all that, and am even moreso now.

My attempts to curtail my ever expanding waist haven't been as fruitful. So I needed more help.

My son, +Dean Moore is pretty awesome.

Like always, on Fridays we put $2 in his lunch bag to buy pizza on pizza day.

Tonight he's sleeping over at my parents so I stopped in to visit and have dinner.  My mom was mentioning how they were thinking of having pizza, but remembered it's pizza day... then Dean pipes up about how he didn't have pizza today for lunch.

He says "I was going to, but today they were asking for donations for cancer, and the money is going to help people who don't feel good ...

My Top 10 Bagpipe Rock Tunes

The pipes are a magical instrument meant to stir your blood and move you!  But it's not just used in marches.  Here's my list of the top 10 uses of the greatest instrument in some non-traditional, pop/rock music.

In honour of International Bagpipe Day our pipe band is having a bit of fun bringing some bagpipe spirit to folks - and so I thought I'd add a bit of sources to show where the bagpipes have had impact outside the marching circuit.

Now these are my favourite songs where bagpipes were included, and I've steered clear of any directly celtic bands; otherwise this would become a huge list.

Okay, so let's start out:

Zoom's last night at our house

He celebrated a little but because he's now hearing back to the north pole.

Zoom makes a friend

No better way to make friends than to share some candy, and no better person to share candy with than OmNom...

Zoom's weekend events

This weekend has been pretty filled with activities so I haven't had a chance to post.

Hrmm... and I missed the shot of him sleeping in the stocking Dean had when he was a baby.  Oh well.

So Zoom had played some video games (funny we didn't hear the TV as it was turned up kind of loud) and he killed the batteries in the game pad.

And then this morning... we don't know if he was meaning to write his own letter to Santa, or convince Dean to write one (he still hasn't yet).

We show off the extractinator in Terraria

So, I have to admit to getting addicted to Terraria (much prefer it over Minecraft).

The latest update added some new things, but when you start a new world after the update - a bunch of new things and ores.

One of the new things was the Extractinator.  You're to place Slush and Silt into it and it'll extract useful stuff (like ores or coins).  Pretty neat.

Took me a while to figure it out.
