Old News!


Well, how do you all like the new look? Now that I have a "real" site, I can upload full sized pics and movies. I'm going to have a photo gallery with a bunch of our good pics. I'm not sure if I'll do them by year or location. I'm learning some programming stuff (Javascript & Php) so hopefully I'll have some nice features. It'd be nice if I could pull images from our webcam outside. Take a look around and don't be afraid to click on things. I do have an unusual sense of humor.

Dear Diary,

What a name for this section, eh? This is for the latest news and stuff.

6/11/06- Raymond is almost done with Basic Training. He's doing good. He's designed the groups flag and made Sharpshooter. Well, we all know he can use a gun better than anything else. It looks like he'll be staying in Chicago for tech school. Bummer. He was supposed to go to Vegas. What the heck is in Chicago to see?

6/21/06- Raymond graduates from Naval Basic Training on Friday. He'll be staying in Chicago/Great Lakes for a few more months of training. Congratulations Raymond!

7/20/06- It's an Aircraft Carrier! Raymond is getting stationed on the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)!!!

This is just soooo cool!!!

9/16/06-The USS Stennis left port and is out at sea. Raymond can't call out at sea so we don't know how much fun he is having! He should have his camera soon and I'll put the pics up as soon as we get them. The weather is getting colder and the leaves are falling. If you click on 'Webcam' on top you'll see my driveway. The image is updated every 15 minutes. Wow! Ok, so it's not that exciting but you can at least see the weather up here.


11/03/06- What happened to global warming? It's freezing up here! It was 8 degrees this morning. Raymond got a tattoo. I'll post pics when I get them. I just applied for another position at my work. And if you haven't seen this pic, here it is.

And this interesting video:

This is Raymond on Modern Marvels aboard the USS Stennis:

And guess who got a new tat?

1/16/07- Guess who has a girlfriend? Christopher and Taz sitting in a tree...

1/16/07- Guess what Raymond just bought. A sniper rifle, an M24 338.

Is anybody surprised? Really!

1/28/07- Cancel that last one. The licenses and registration fees are killer on this. He's going to find something more affordable.

Tundra now has a Sunday strip! Yeah!!! Check out his site. He's a great guy, always out at the mall or the State Fair working hard for your money. He does custom artwork too! I think the Navy even hired him for some work.

I moved the older stuff to another page. Click on Old News at the top to view it.

5/13/07- Happy Mothers day everyone! I've noticed that I have a returning visitor from Mt. Laurel in New Jersey. I've seen this place on my log several times now. No problem, but just kinda curious who you are. I have a clue but it's mostly a guess. Please drop me an email and say 'Hi!' (the actual city you live in 'might' be different than what you live in depending on your isp. Please don't be shy! (This actually applies to everyone too. Let me know what you like/dislike about my site.) I'm thinking about putting up some family history with pics and all. Anybody interested?
