Just got hit by another EARTHQUAKE in Dallas, Texas.

3.5 Magnitude this time.  

It was centered near the location where the American football Texas Stadium used to exist, former home field of the NFL Dallas Cowboys.  
The rumble from the implosion of the old stadium on April 11, 2010 was itself felt miles away.

3.0-Magnitude EARTHQUAKE IN TEXAS!

I just experienced my first earthquake!  Of all places it happened in Dallas, Texas (Las Colinas area in Irving, Texas to be more exact).

Everybody's raving about the Pumpkin Spice Latte coming back to Starbucks while my German Shepherd can enjoy a Puppuccino anytime of the year.

Happy 2nd birthday buddy!!

"My Son"

Hold him a little longer,
Rock him a little more.
Tell him another story
(You've only told him four).
Let him sleep on your shoulder,
Rejoice in his happy smile.
He is only two
For such a little while.

It's a Love Without End, Amen

Minutes before this played I had scolded my almost two years-old son for biting me on the arm. As soon as this beautiful song by Aaron Barker started my baby boy who still had tears in his eyes came over to me. Little David then placed his head on my chest and his arm around me. The song continued and while the tears in his little eyes dried mine started to run down my face.

Happy Father's Day

There's plenty of fish in the sea, but there's only one I want for me.

Just got hit by another EARTHQUAKE in DALLAS, TX!  This one didn't feel as strong as last time even though it came close at 2.9-magnitude.

Dear baby boy,

Know that I love you very very much.  Grow big and strong always doing the right thing, and never forget me.

Love always,
Daddy

Story
Tagline
Dad, husband, brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin, friend, dog lover, gadget geek, software developer, and generally a nice guy.
Introduction
I'm a software developer for a financial services firm in the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex.  Since 1996 I have been creating software business solutions and love the work I do.  Over the years I have become experienced with various technologies and am always in a race to keep up with the latest and greatest.  

I was born and raised in a small west Texas town where all of my family resides.  My career in the information technology industry brought me to the "big city", Dallas. This is where I have made my home for several years.


Some of my favorite quotes to live by and remember.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11

Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain


Bragging rights
No matter how bad things get, God never lets me down. I'm also a dad to a precious baby boy, self-proclaimed little princess, and a young lady with master artist aspirations.
