These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

I love watching movies (as you can see here), and a two weeks ago I started a trial Netflix membership. [The post wonโ€™t be about Netflix, but I do have to say โ€“ Iโ€™m loving it. Itโ€™s a one month trial, and we can have one DVD at a time. The real win for me, […]

Already Missed A Day

Due to the fact that yesterday was very packed with stuff to do. Had to wake up early because my son had a birthday party to attend. He was being picked up here at our house, so I had to clean the kitchen, living room & dining room all while getting our clothes ready and […]


I read somewhere that by committing yourself to blog once a day – every day, no matter what – you force yourself to see it as another daily commitment (like showering, or eating, or other important stuff). So it got me wondering – given my less-than-stellar track record for blogging, would I be able to […]

Movies Part II

A quick update from a previous post: I’ve seen 590 movies over the course of my lifetime (according to the movies I’ve rated at Again . . . not sure if I should be proud or worried (especially after my previous post topic!). Blessings & Peace,Hugo

I’m either a heretic or a saint . . .

So the blog title doesn’t actually have anything to do with the blog itself (well . . . maybe tangentially, but not directly), but it’s a comment I cherish. ๐Ÿ™‚ It came from a student in a catechist certification course I gave a few years ago . . . ahh, fond memories . . . […]

Who Am I?

For a while, I was posting several quizzes I had found that I enjoyed. The quizzes were mostly funny / satirical /entertaining / time wasting fluff, but I think that part of the reason I may not have posted recently is that I was trying to only post about religius / spiritual topics . . […]

Back from the Conference

I attended the National Youth Workers Conference put on by Youth Specialties in Austin last week/weekend. It was my first time attending, and I really enjoyed it. The first day and a half I participated in a contemplative retreat entitled “Becoming the Beloved.” It was facilitated by Mark Yaconelli, and it was the best part […]

The National Youth Workers Convention

Later on this week I’m attending the National Youth Workers Convention in Austin, TX. I have to admit to being a bit nervous – this is the first non-Catholic large-scale conference that I’ll be attending. I usually attend the National Conference on Catholic Youth Ministry (an every-other-year event), but this year my budget couldn’t handle […]

Finally . . . A Post! :-)

Nothing for quite a while – no excuses (except for the normal ones – laziness, work and family commitments), so here’s an interview I did for a students a few years ago that I found floating around in my computer – enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚ 1. What is one of your earliest memories about God/Jesus?The earliest memory […]

Galveston Vacation

Our Galveston vacation was cut short with the threat of flash flooding and tropical stom winds and rain, but otherwise it was fun. We did the beach, the pool, four-person bicycling, window-shopping, Moody Gardens, paddleboat ride, dinner at a tropical-rainforest-themed resteraunt, dinner at an excellent steak place, and catching up with my sisters. Blessings & […]
