  1. More Wedding Bells

    As promised, here is Saturday’s news:

    Kelly McConnell, from my Bible Study, is engaged to Kristin Engler.

    This is a pretty substantial point since it marks the first of TheBS guys to get engaged. I think many of us honestly thought it was go…

    It was Ellio…

  8. SAAS Stuff

    Tuesday was SAAS Graduation. The last one I’ll go to for now. There are two reasons this will be my last one. First, I don’t know anyone else graduating. This was the last class that I shared a link to. Second, I have this "thing" left over from …
