G.I. Joe: Retaliation – Review

And what do we do with a ten year old boy who is off of school on Easter Monday? Yup – G.I. Joel: Retaliation. What better way to thank our Risen Lord for dying for the world’s (and my) sins than saddling up the young ‘un for some good old fashioned Hollywood juiced up Save […]

Baseball in the Snow

Sunday afternoon, John’s U10 baseball team won their six team tournament with a convincing 14-5 victory.

March Madness

I gave up trying to figure out the Obama Administration’s energy, domestic and foreign policies for Lent. Frankly, it has been a liberating experience.
