Changing host

I normally try to keep update news over on my personal blog to reserve this site for family information but I need to notify everybody that I will be changing hosts within the next couple days.

Although I’ve been happy with them, they’re currently limiting lots of what I used to do.  I can no longer update Gallery2 or TNG.  That’s simply unacceptable.

I’ll keep you updated as the changes happen.  Any suggestions?

Stalling for Time

I have to admit I’ve waited until the last moment to decide if I stay with my webhost or move on. I’m one of those loyal customers….well, maybe one of the sheep. I’ve had trouble with them in the past where their answers just seem ridiculous but the site stayed up. I received what I paid for, right?!

According to my good friend, Mr Papa, the answer is NO! So while that means it’s great for the casual user with just a simple blog or forum…don’t try running PHP intense software such as TNG or Gallery2. It seems this is where most of my issues are originating from.

So, with Mr Papa’s help, I’m on the path to hosting Nirvana. Hopefully I can get there before my time runs out this weekend.

I’m a Wanted Man!

Imagine after all these years….first my lonely teenage years where girls just wanted to be my friend and like the brother they always wanted. Now I’ve been married for almost 14 years.

Now I keep getting these emails from woman lining up in Internet cafes to talk to me. It appears I’ve become quite the popular person. Is it because of my witty humor, my rugged looks (I shan’t say good, I don’t want to be vain), my disability so they think I’m rich or is it the fact that I have six children. They obviously know I’m virile. Or it could be because they know that I am unobtainable. I’m the forbidden fruit.

All I have to say to them is this: Where were you when I was a teenager?!

They’ve lost their chance. I should feel sorry for them but I don’t. So Clarisse, Vanessa, and all you others…move along. I’m a happily married man.

Summer Time video

I thought I’d add something fun. It’s been frightfully hot here for the past month…surprisingly so. We’ve been in the high 90′s and low 100′s for the past 3 weeks with no break and no rain. It’s insane weather. Fortunately, we haven’t had to start rationing water and that’s where this picture comes in.

There are just times where enough is enough and my girls had had it. Too hot and access to a sprinkler. Enough said! Enjoy!

Wedding Bells soon to ring

Kaley and Justin announcementToday, Kara’s sister, Kaley Peterson will be wed to Justin Burke. Kara will be acting as bridesmaid, Kieran and Bridget along with their cousin Nevaeh will be flower girls, and Abby and Annie will make sure guests use the register (whatever that position is called). Pictures will be provided later tonight as time permits.

I’ve known Kaley since she was a young teenager. She was a wonderful girl with lots of dreams and hopes. Throughout her life, she’s accomplished a good majority of her goals except for singing with Reba McEntire but who knows what the future holds! I’ve long admired her for her drive, competitive spirit and desire to do what’s right.

I wish her and Justin the best. Please join me in wishing the new couple well in their future live together!

Following is part of the wedding announcement:

The parents of Kaley Marie Peterson and Justin R. Burke announce the couple’s intention to marry Aug. 4. Kaley is the daughter of Bill Peterson and Kathy and Tim Hammond, all of Missoula. Justin’s parents are John Burke of Missoula and Marcia Burke of Bonner.
