Blood

Posted by Shane

I boil when the sun touches me,

like a roasted marshmallow.

and when it comes down to,

cooling me down it is very tough.

You run through me all day and

even during the night but when

you think to past sunrises, I seem

to just stop. I try to re-establish

the link but I usually get no response.

I go to sleep wondering but heaven’s

moon touches me knowing that somewhere

that link still does exists and fate

will bring it back together.

Second Chances

Posted by Shane

If you thought you messed up something, wouldn’t you like to have that second chance to make it right?  We tell ourselfs all the time after we mess up that we deserve a second chance to make it right. When you have that second chance, you learn from your mistakes that put you in the situation in the first place. read more ‘Second Chances

Header is now CSS3/HTML5

Posted by Shane

I get a lot of complements on my flash header. Particularly the second by second update of the “gradient tween” that goes between that syncs up with the real time of day. So as you are reading this now, look at the header on my site (Flash enabled?). Does the time period pretty much match what is outside at the moment? It should be pretty close to what your experiencing outside.

This 24-loop header is great because you also see the stars “rise” and “set”, different seasons, and even the animated butterflies that pop out during the summer time. Overall the header is the most advanced thing that I can find on the web that does this type of animation. There is one catch to viewing this header: You have to have flash enabled and/or be on a flash compatible device. Do’h!

Today was the 2nd year in a row that I went to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure where my mom, a survivor of breast cancer for now over 16 years, ran again. This time around we were organized and got to the city and the starting line with plenty of time to spare to see the real start of the race to takes lots of pictures in front of the massive starting line that was right near the Museum of Natural History.

Over the course of the year, myself, mom and sister go through everything we own. Clothes, toys, etc. and as things do not fit and things are worn down or out of style, we put it in our ‘donation’ area in the basement so when it comes towards the end of the summer. We can give everything away so people who are in need of some items to keep them warm over the winter and for other seasons as well have a healthy choice of selections.

Today was out last trip to the church that we bring our stuff today and over the course of two days we brought over 120lbs of cloths, shoes, underwear, jackets, heavy winter, and toys to the church. So much that it filled my car twice each time we went.

It’s a great feeling that people will be able to enjoy the items that we all cherish at one point to know that someone else with cherish it all the same.
