I have been blogging for almost 3 years now, all on Blogger. I have actually been importing this blog into my Word Press account for some time now and I have officially decided it's time to make the switch. So, on August 20, 2008 I have offically quit posting on Blogger and will now post exclusively on WordPress.

Bigfoot found? Nope.
HoffSpace. You gotta be kidding me!
I am speechless, maybe you have some words......
Sign up today!
In my travels round the world I have always been surprised that no matter where I go people recognize and know me, from Europe, Australia and India to the Philippines and the Zulu Nation in South Africa. This got me thinking... I realized that while two people from two entirely different countries and backgrounds may seem to have nothing in common, the only thing they might have in common is me... So I decided to start a network where people from across the world might come together and get a conversation started over me. Where it will lead, I don't know but the world would be a better place if everyone talked a little more to each other...
So here is HoffSpace. There are videos and photos of the adventures of my life (THAT NO ONE ELSE GETS TO SEE) and also from the lives of other members. Read the discussions or start a forum on a topic that interests you. Check out Hoff TV, where I go live often. Chat with other members from around the world and make friends. Design your own home page. Add music and share your lives with others. Send me the weird, wonderful and wacky things that are happening in your life. Tell me the stories of how you are making a difference in your life and, if you need my help, ask... One man or woman CAN make a difference...

Obama on abortion:
FOR ME, THE GOAL RIGHT NOW SHOULD BE -- AND THIS IS WHERE I THINK WE CAN FIND COMMON GROUND AND BY THE WAY I HAVE NOW INSERTED THIS INTO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY PLATFORM IS HOW DO WE REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ABORTIONS BECAUSE THE FACT IS THAT ALTHOUGH WE'VE HAD A PRESIDENT WHO IS OPPOSED TO ABORTIONS OVER THE LAST EIGHT YEARS, ABORTIONS HAVE NOT GONE DOWN.
Get your facts straight:
According to the Guttmacher Institute: "In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were performed, down from 1.31 million in 2000."
....Last I checked President Bush took office in 2001.
Obama on experience:
Rick Warren Q. WHICH EXISTING SUPREME COURT JUSTICE WOULD YOU NOT HAVE NOMINATED?
Obama A. THAT'S A GOOD ONE. THAT'S A GOOD ONE. I WOULD NOT HAVE NOMINATED CLARENCE THOMAS. I DON'T THINK THAT HE. I DON'T THINK THAT HE WAS A STRONG ENOUGH JURIST OR LEGAL THINKER AT THE TIME FOR THAT ELEVATION. SETTING ASIDE THE FACT THAT I PROFOUNDLY DISAGREE WITH HIS INTERPRETATION OF A LOT OF CONSTITUTION.
Basically, Justice Thomas was too inexperienced at the time of his nomination.
Aren't you a first term Senator? The least experienced of ALL major candidates for President in modern history.
Look for McCain problems soon!!

Bigfoot found? Judge for yourself.
If you have been reading Life & Times for a while you know I have a liking for Bigfoot. Well, it came out this week that a group men from Georgia found a dead Sasquatch in the woods. They took the corpse and put it on ice in a broken down freezer and eventually contacted Bigfoot guru Tom Biscardi to get some help. They had a Press Meeting yesterday (WATCH HERE) Here is a Fox News interview:

We have been working so hard to get our new church building ready to occupy. Well today after a ridiculous amount of hard work by our contractor we received our Certificate of Occupancy. Next Sunday (August 24th) we will have our first services. Exciting times for a church that has been portable for 11 years!!!

Periodic Table of Awesomeness
As a dude there are certain things that stir me up or qualify as awesome. You have to chuckle at some of the basic building blocks of awesomeness. Some are not very appropriate for those self-righteous ones out there, but for the most part they are funny and true.

Firsts: Ocean fishing and Dolphin watching
After doing some easy investigation I found out that the ocean seas would be very flat today so I took Roman out in the boat. We went out of the Jupiter Inlet and opened up the motor to go south on the coast about 7 miles. We then went out to sea and cast our lines to try and catch a fish (no dice!). We decided to go north up the coast a bit and along the way we stumbled upon a pod of dolphins. This was so crazy! I have never seen dolphins so playful and frisky in the wild. It was like watching a show at Sea World or something! They were jumping out of the water and squeaking. Roman had a blast. He calls them Miami dolphins, gotta raise 'em up right!

Bessie turns 40!
Yesterday we had a great family time as my sister Bethany turned 40. I have been prepping her for this day for many years now and it seems she got the best me and deflected all of the taunting by beating me at Guitar Hero and then confirming that beat down by beating me again! Happy birthday to the greatest sister on the planet! I love you!

You gotta watch this
Saturday, August 02, 2008
As many of you know my church, Calvary Jupiter has been in the process of building our first facility for the past 14 months. It has become grueling and I feel bad for our contractor as he has been taking a lot of grief from our bored Building Inspectors. We are the only project going on in the area of our inspector so he is being very uncooperative. Any way, our move in date is approaching as you can tell by the picture. Check back soon for more updates!
