First Post of 2007

Wow, three months without a single post on the blog. That kind of sucks. I’ve had plenty of material to write about. Looking back through my calendar, here are a few highlights…

  • January 5 — Bought a house.
  • January 7-12 — Attended MacWorld in San Francisco, CA.
  • Rest of January — Cleaning, removing wallpaper, painting, and moving.
  • January 23 — Started a new job at SVSU as Microlab Technology Specialist.
  • February 11-17 — Trip to Phoenix, AZ for Altiris training and lots of golf.
  • March 14 — Saw the movie 300 in IMAX, which was AMAZING!
  • Marach 17 — Bought a road bike.
  • March 25 — Walked 18 holes here in Saginaw, MI. Had never before played MI golf in March.

January was a crazy month for me and February was pretty busy as well getting set in the new job. I love the house I bought and went with a pretty big one as a first time home owner. Go big or go home right? The new job is excellent. I don’t have to deal with the phones and stress of working at a Help Desk anymore. I’m kind of on my own which is a new challenge and very rewarding.

I’ve been working out like a mad man for the most part and really enjoying it. I feel so much better, both mentally and physically, when I workout daily. I want to “attempt” a couple of triathlons this summer, which I think will be an amazing experience and quite the accomplishment.

I still have that new design stashed away for MDV. Once I get my taxes done and a few other things done around the house I’ll try to pull it back out and get it finished because this site really needs a face lift.

Disturbing News Items

The big story in the news over the past few days has been the fight that broke out between players and fans during the NBA game between the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers. Artest got his wish with a season long suspension and will now have plenty of time to work on his rap album. I’m glad to see him go, but I feel bad for the Pacers organization, because their season is all but over.

A much more disturbing story comes from Wisconsin though, where 5 hunters were killed and 3 others injured. If all happened when two hunters were returning to their cabin and noticed somebody in one of their tree stands. After both men were wounded, they radioed back to the cabin for help. The suspect then shot the other hunters who came to help, including a woman and teen-age boy.

What is this world coming to?

Fetus Found At SVSU

Earlier tonight (around 6:30 p.m.) a janitor walked into a bathroom in Curtiss Hall, found a puddle of blood, and called 911. It turns out that there was a fetus in one of the toilets, but the mother was no where to be found. The Michigan State police have been investigating, but no further details have been released.

I’ll update this post tomorrow as the story unfolds.

Update: Check the comments for information provided by the SVSU Chief of Police.
