Here we go again ..
Last night was the first time the Landings community met up face to face since the pandemic started and everything pivoted to Zoom, including church meet-ups. I was tasked to play guitar for the opening praise session and it was just three songs which were not particularly difficult or stressful. But at the end of … Continue reading Here we go again ..

Mike Schmitz this year, I’ve finally finished reading through the whole Bible for the first time in my life! As with most folks, at some point in our lives we … Continue reading Bible in a Year – 2021
Picked up where I left off in my childhood and started skating again. Realised its a pretty good cardio workout and just short bursts of half-hour skating sessions are enough to wear me down. Been teaching the boy how to skate and he seems to enjoy it too. Now we can easily bundle the four … Continue reading Skateboarding
