What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

San Jose Shark Fever

The Sharks were a big thing in San Jose for a time.  First the Sharks took out the Anaheim Ducks in four games.  however then the face the Vegas Knights and lost four games to two.  I happened to walk through San Jose on the day of a match, and got some shots.  This included San Pedro Square decked out, a Shark boat and a shark by the Arena.  I even watched a game on t.v.; the Sharks lost in overtime, but they came back two goals in the final period.

A Strange Sunday

On the way to church about a month ago, Tony kept asking what the water was?  I couldn't see any water, thinking he was perhaps referring to a puddle of water.  But what he was seeing is the big elevated fire hoses.  There were two of them, about a mile away when Tony first saw them.  We saw them very well as we drove past some apartment buildings that have been going up in Manteca.  The fire hoses were spraying lots of water, and had gotten ahead of the fire,, but not before two apartment buildings were totally destroyed and a couple more damaged.  I went over the next day to get a picture of the area, but it was mostly all cleaned up.  This is by Atherton Drive and Van Ryn Avenue. Here is a picture from Manteca Bulletin.
 
That same day it was windy in the afternoon.  Our tree blew over.  This was or tallest tree that offers shade in the afternoon.  It just blew over, sheered right at the bottom almost level with the ground.  It didn't do much damage other than taking out some white plastic chairs.

Bowling: Logan Fun House

Bowlng and Fun House in Logan.  It took me a while to warm up, but I ended with a lot of spares.  Don't think I ever got a strike. However I did end well over 100, and was the top scorer for our group.  However Caleb let Todd take a couple turns, and if not for that he would have won easily. 



I am not sure if the little kids preferred bowling or the jungle gym.  The really enjoyed the long slide.
