Google Reader and Shared Items

I read a lot of blogs. I previously used feedblitz to send me emails of the blogs I read. So after a few people mentioned that they use Google Reader to keep up with blogs they read I checked it out and now have made the switch. One of the nice things is the shared items feature. On the right hand side of this blog towards the bottom you will see "Jeff's Shared Items", this links straight to blog posts that I find interesting and mark in Google Reader. If you have any other tips for me in using Google Reader let me know in the comments of this post. Thanks!!!

New Feature




Every weekend I get a chance to hang out with my son Jacob while Jami works. Every Saturday I am going to start a "Saturdays with Jacob" feature on this blog. It will start by me asking him this question: "What do you want to write about today?". So here we go with the first "Saturdays With Jacob"!


Jacob what do you want to write about today? Mommy


What do you like about mommy?I love her and I love you

What are you going to do when mom comes home from work?Show her the Cars movie date!


Well that is it for this Saturday. Short to start off with, but we'll see how it goes in the next few weeks! (Jacob is fasinated by the Cars movie right now)

Grandpa Kamp




This a picture of my grandpa Kamp when he was in the Navy. This morning my Grandma Kamp gave me this paper and website where they memorialize WWII vets. Kinda cool. They misspelled his name, it should read Wayne not Wayme.


ACTIVITY DURING WWII
HE WAS INDUCTED ON DECEMBER 7, 1942 AT NAVAL RECEIVING STATION CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. HE WAS STATIONED AT CAMP PARKS HAYWOOD, CALIFORNIA. HE WAS IN THREE DIFFERENT BANDS AND PLAYED FOR THE ARMY DANCES AT THE UNITED SERVICE ORGANIZATIONS. HIS SHIP, THE SS HARRINGTON, WENT TO POINT BARROW, ALASKA ON JULY 27, 1945. THEY WERE FROZEN IN AT POINT BARROW UNTIL AUGUST 23, 1945 AS THEY COULDN'T LEAVE UNTIL THE ICE THINNED. HE WAS DISCHARGED ON DECEMBER 10, 1945
