Catholic Jeopardy Winner!

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I got to enjoy a game of Catholic Jeopardy at the WIU Saint Francis of Assisi Newman Center last night. The competition was fierce, but thanks to having Deacon Tony on the team April …sorry, forgot your last name  :-) … and I won the game!

And for the life of me I couldn’t remember the technical name of the main candle at the altar or the ecclesiastical seat of the Bishop of Rome (The Pope). I’ll give you a hint, it’s not St. Peters Basilica. Do you remember?

Improving Camp Chic-a-gama

IMG_0165

 

For Comcast Cares Day this year we improved Camp Chic-a-gama at Spring Lake Park in Macomb. We added 400 ft. or so of new fencing, re-painted the Adirondak chairs and picnic tables, re-stained the storage shed and some building trim.

We did a lot in three hours and raised money for the Boy Scout Troop. This camp is not just for scouts. It is also used for weddings, community events, meetings, retreats, and sporting events.

I’ll post some pictures of the improvements as soon as I get “free time.”

Another round

I once blogged fairly often. Then life got in the way. Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, having a young son, and working took its toll.

So, here we go again. I’ll try to keep it interesting. Stories of scouting, cycling, being a father, and happenings in the Mac. If you don’t know what the “Mac” is, it’s Macomb. I’ll even try to dig up the archives and post an oldie once in a while.

Later folks. I have some light reading on Cisco VoIP and Asterisk Call manager to finish.
