Dec. 20, 2008, 0300: My wife went into labor 3 1/2 weeks early. The same day at 2122 hours she delivered an 8lb, 21 1/2" baby boy! (probably a good thing she was early, otherwise he could've been close to 10 pounds!) He has had some resporatory distress, thus we have been at the hospital since the 20th, but he is doing MUCH better every day! (hopefully we'll be home Sunday or Monday! We'll see.) God bless the brothers and sisters who have helped take care of our pets during the last week. Bean, Weber, and the Kuipers: THANK YOU!

"The master of all things mechanical" - I have never forgot the job requirement for an engineer.

Marriage is great. Work is great. life is great. How are things with you? kids yet?
