Merry Christmas

it's been a busy few weeks around here, but last night was the "big night". we had a million things to do, and try to keep the kids in bed. it was a night i'll never forget, yet it is so hard to describe.

i moved all the stuff in our basement around to make room for our new air hockey table. afterwards i had the pleasure of putting the air hockey table together. it took me a good part of the evening and into the wee hours of the morning to finish my project.

i didn't get much sleep last night, but in the end it was worth it. i got the smiles that make my heart sing. my kids were super happy with their new gifts.

just seeing kids smile can make a Christmas merry for a father.

i hope your Christmas was nice.

how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?

yesterday i saw the movie what the bleep do we know!?
a friend from work told me about this movie and since then i've wanted to see it. it is a documentary about quantum physics and how it relates to everything in the universe, including God.

i strongly recommend seeing this film. for me this movie is going to be a life changing experience. if you can open your mind to some extreme ideas, then i think you'll like it too. some parts may be a little hard to grasp if you haven't experienced quantum physics. however i still suggest seeing this movie if you can simply open your mind and believe the things that are being considered.

from my experience, most of the things that are brought up have been proven scientifically. some things get pretty hard to believe, but nearly everything in quantum physics is hard to believe.

the concepts in this film are quite deep and only limitted by your mind. so, how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?

if you need a life changing experience, and you can open your mind, you need to see this film.
