A couple of weeks ago a buddy at work gave me a few plants; two tropical, black-eyed susan vines and one moonflower plant. Woahohohooooo Nelly... Am I about to blog about plants? Why yes; yes I am. The moonflower plant is pretty awesome actually. My buddy told me that this plant would produce flowers, one at a time, several times, before dying. Last night it finally blossumed and I used my new GoPro to capture the time lapse. The series of photos in the video were taken every 60 seconds, between 7:00pm and 9:00pm. Pretty cool!

Just wanted to post up some video footage I took while mountainbiking with my brother Patrick a couple of weekends ago. Debbie and I drove down to meet Pat, who's a Marine at Camp Lejeune. He doesn't have a lot of trails down there in his part of North Carolina, but what he does have, are pretty fun! He crashed twice, which means he was riding harder than I was! I rode my fat bike, which I am still madly in love with. Wish we could ride more often.

I’m 36 years old now. My birthday was last Friday and was celebrated over a long weekend in my very favorite of all places; the Adirondacks. Debbie and I spent a few days at a cabin in Woodgate, just south of Old Forge. We spent the days hiking, swimming and relaxing (when we werent’ getting drilled by black flies). I was really excited to have received a couple of awesome gifts from Debbie. Each deserving of their own blog entry; so more on them later. I will say that she got me the latest Gopro camera, the Hero 3, Black Edition, and it is AWESOME. I cannot wait to use it more. Below is some sample footage I took from the summit of Blue Mountain.
We rounded the trip off with a stop at my folks place for a nice visit. We were able to spend the day with them. My father and I spent a couple of hours at the rifle range. My shoulder is still sore from his 45-70.
