I don’t get it, a lot of folks say we look alike, but I just don’t see it.

This shall be the last post about the Great Wall of Geeding. Below are some before and after pictures and one final timelapse video of the sod being laid down.
The first and second “Before” pictures are from when we moved into GeedingManor back in January of 2005, that’s why there’s a gray fence. All other before pictures were taken this year.
I thought nothing would ever top the Michael Jordan Chicago Bulls pre-game intro, but I think the Montreal Canadians may have taken the top spot. Of course the Canadians benefit from the advancement in technology, but it’s pretty solid. I guess my only complaint is that is may be a little drawn out.
And here’s the old Bulls’ intro for reference and nostalgia. During that time I was often told I was a Luc Longley look-a-like.
Several years ago I didn’t make a post on the first day of Lent because I was swamped with work and I joked that I gave up blogging for Lent. One of my pastor friends (the kind of guy that would go to college in Oklahoma, become a children’s pastor in DFW, then Lubbock, and then Georgia) called my bluff and wondered if I could seriously give up blogging for the entire season of Lent. Each year that thought has popped in my mind, and yesterday I decided to seriously accept the challenge.
A lot of folks participate in Lent as part of their spiritual life, but many non-spiritual people like to partake of it as some kind of challenge of discipline. Many think that it means giving something up, but it can also mean committing to something for 40 days like going for a walk, reading, volunteering, eating in, or something more family or kid oriented. For me, it’s two fold. I want to give up something that has become such a big part of my everyday life for the last eight or so years, and I want to dedicate myself to something as well. For now, I’m going to keep my dedication personal.
I understand for some of you this little blog is how you start your workday or is your little getaway, and this choice of mine is going to be a bit of a disruption for you. Maybe you can use the three to five minutes you would normally spend here and use it to meditate/pray, talk to a coworker, or finally write a letter or send that email to that someone you’ve been meaning to get to. But for those of you that would rather spend your time online, I’ve provided some similar blogs below and some places that I like to spend time. All should be family friendly-ish and safe for work.
There’s a chance I might lose some readers, but I don’t mind. Those that I lose probably have been looking for a reason to not visit for a while now. I’ll still be tweeting, probably more than usual, so you can keep up with me there.
See ya April 21.
“To Capt. / WestJet,” the note, written on the back of a napkin reads, “The cockpit of airlier [sic] is no place for a woman. A woman being a mother is the most honor not as “captain” Proverbs 31 (Sorry not P.C.) P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight! Were [sic] short mothers not pilots Westjet.
I had no idea there was a comic or VHS mode.
The 408K Race in San Jose is already an inspiring event. The annual 8-kilometer run benefits the Pat Tillman Foundation, which funds scholarships for military veterans. This year, runners made it all the more memorable with a spontaneous tribute to a 95-year-old World War II veteran who had come out in his full uniform to cheer them.
San Jose Mercury News reporter Julia Prodis Sulek captured the stirring salute Sunday as runners shook the hand of Joe Bell and thanked him for his service.
