next attempt at a marathon

my next attempt at a marathon is the green bay cellcom marathon. once again my brother-n-law and sister-n-law will be along for the journey (jill is already a marathoner and jim and i are just wannabe’s at this stage). the best part of the race is that it finishes with us running through lambeau field. let me say that again. WE GET TO RUN THROUGH LAMBEAU FIELD. this is going to be so cool.

my run for the day
distance – 2.0 miles
time – 18:23
pace – 9:11/mile


pam and i have tickets to go see “urinetown, the musical” friday. i’m so excited!

SIDE NOTE – has anybody who reads this used mythtv? my dad has an old emachine that i’m stealing from him and placing in the “man cave.” i have a cable hook up there and i am considering placing a tv tuner in the machine and using it as a dvr. that way the “man cave” will have a computer, dvd player, tv, and dvr all in one machine.

say cheese

so as everyone but grant knew the packers beat the broncos and what a win it was. like i said earlier, it has to be a bad week for grant. of course, since i sat on my couch watching the game while grant was at mile high stadium watching the game, i seriously doubt that he’s week is really that bad.

SIDE NOTE – thanks to brad’s generosity i received a couple of hand printed copies of “the gospel of screen printing.” i had written brad a couple of weeks ago asking if he might screen print me some business cards. he said sure and commented that hand printed cards “felt” different. i wasn’t sure what he meant until i touch the zines he sent. there is a definite difference in the printing and it feels great. i’m waiting on the logo that is being designed for me to send the business card design to brad. i can’t wait for the cards now.

nuebia update

i received this update from claudia a little earlier today and i thought i would pass it along to anyone who read this and loves the baltodonas.

Dear friends,

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining us in prayer on behalf of my mom. We took her to the doctor today for the test they needed to do to figure out the size and kind of tumor they had discovered. The result was NO tumor. Everything clean. Not even swollen anymore. Thank you for believing with us for a good report. We serve an amazing God who works in misterious ways.
My whole family is thankful to God and to you for standing up in prayer for my mom. You definitely are what a true friend is supposed to be!

love you very much,
Claudia and family


the terrell family has just found it’s first thing within wisconsin (or at least within the village of plover if it’s not the whole state) that we think is dumb. it’s halloween. the “official” celebration of halloween within the village of plover was today (october 28th) from 3-6p.m. what do halloween and daylight have in common? i know some of you are not big fans of halloween. i’m fine with your convictions. my family and i on the other hand are fine with halloween and therefore we had to laugh out loud at the thought of kids trick or treating during the afternoon. it just didn’t feel the same.

SIDE NOTE – for those of you would know the baltodona’s i thought i would pass along claudia’s request that you pray for momma neubia. momma neubia has been sick for a few days and finally went to the doctor. the doctor checked her out and said that he thought she might have a tumor in her colon. they have no idea what that means yet and so they will be doing testing tomorrow. please keep the baltodona’s in your prayers.

the morning after

ah life is back to normal in my small little world of a few visits a day. the air was thin up in the “marko effect” stratus. now life can go on as normal with me stealing other people’s ideas, posting meaningless rabble, and, of course, helping to produce a little marko. 🙂

now we will return to you regularly scheduled program.
