Detroit Sports Weekend

Wow, what a weekend for sports here in Detroit this weekend. The Wings won yesterday to tie their series at 1-1 with San Jose. They came back from a goal down to win, good stuff. The Pistons swept the Orlando Magic to move on to the next round. They'll play the Chicago Bull who swept the defending champion Miami Heat..... they get to play Big Ben!!! The Lions drafted Calvin Johnson with the 2nd pick in the NFL draft yesterday, the rest of the Lions draft seemed so so, but you never know! The Tigers had a rough weekend, but won today on a walk of home run by Brandon Inge in the botton of the 9th. So far the pitching hasn't been as good as last year, but they will be formiddable throughout the year, this team is for real. Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski did a great job in assembling this team, thank you Dave! Now, can you pass along some words of advice to Matt Millen?

Last night I had my performance with Candice at the studio, this one was MUCH better than our first. Candice is a great partner, she has the athletcism, looks and talent to be a great dancer, i'm lucky to have her as a partner.

Last, but certainly not least...tomorrow is the viewing for my grandmother, Mary Fuerst. All of the family are in town now, the viewing begins at 1:30. It was an emotional couple of days for sure.

Sweet Dreams Nana

Tonight i'll be performing with Candice again. We practiced really hard this morning, i'm quite confident that we'll do very well.

I met with an internet coach this week. The advice he gave me for what I would need to do was very helpful, I now need to make a decision as to whether I want to continue with having a coach. Actually, I think I do. I have 4 strong ideas for money making websites, I want to have 2 of them up and running by the end of the year.

My grandmother on my mother's side passed away yesterday, she was 91. She wasn't doing too well in the past few week, we were expecting this was going to happen soon. Thanks Nana for bringing in to the my mother, her 3 sisters and brother. It's because of you that we have a very find, loving family, we'll all miss you.

It begins

I started building a site tonight. It's ugly. It's horrible...but it's started.

A lot

Salsa music is so good, it's ridiculous.

I was looking at the pictures from our salsa event the other night, my friend Dana did a great job. I'm really looking forward to learning how to use the camera I bought. I have also purchased a few books recently now also to go along with the course lessons I receive on a monthly basis. It's going to be beneficial to have my own images on my site.

The calendar says it's Spring

Mother Nature says otherwise. On Saturday April 14th we had our Motor City Salseros salsa social at Troy Dance SNOWED!! It made me nervous that it would hold people back from coming, but that wasn't the case, we had around 120 people, turned out really well. Even had a girl from Aruba that I know there, such a small world. Her and her partner and soon to be husband put on a performace, it was fantastic. If you are ever planning on going to Aruba, please check out Janice and Oslin at

I've been traning with Candice for the showcase recenlty. Overall I really don't care to perform, but i'm really enjoying practicing with her, she's come along so quickly. We practiced a lift tonight, I'll admit I was very nervous, but she's a former college cheerleader from Michigan State, she's a pro no doubt. We're even thinking of competing soon....shhhhhhhhh! ;-)

I have my idea for a website to see some ebooks and other media. I've completed my training on Dreamweaver, time to start making sites!!

Time also to work out more again too. Dancing with Yasko and Candice really helps, but I need to do more, and I will.

I ordered my camera today! I'm getting a Canon XT Rebel, 2 lens' and a nice flash. Next week is going to be photography week for me, I get to catch up on all the lessons i've been recieving, definitely going to have a lot of fun with this.

We recieved fantastic news at the studio yesterday also. Elaine was able to secure sponsorhip to bring a Salsa Congress here to Detroit. It's going to be sometime in September of this year, not sure exactly when...or where yet, but it's going to be happening. Last night I sat with Elaine and David to get a list of names of performers and instructors that will be appearing, it's going to be a fantastic time for sure.

I began studying search engine optimization this week. I think it'll be important for a lot of future projects how this is needs to be done.

Was contacted by a high school friend this week concerning our 20 year reunion. I'll be helping a little with that now too, what a year this is turning out to be.

Can I have that camera today please???
