About Dan

As I sit down to write this section, I am asking myself what someone would want to know about me? I suppose that, at a job interview, someone might say, “Dan, what are you all about? What makes you ‘you’?”
What makes me Dan is my family. I love my family like you wouldn't believe. My wife Alicia and I have been married 15 years and we are crazy about each other. She's a great mom to our three kids and a great wife to me. My kids are totally cool…most of the time. We have one boy and two girls. We also have a female cat named Midnight and a male guinea pig named Chunk. He is no help. I promise you, I'm outnumbered.
Our middle child, the oldest daughter, has cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that you can learn more about by clicking this link on our old CF blog. That link will talk to you about the CF Foundation and provide links for it's main "about CF" material.
Finally, my faith, as small as it is most of the time, defines who I am. It makes me act the way I act and lead the way I lead and it makes me the family man that I am. I am a constant failure to the savior, but I rest relatively easy knowing that he has secured me eternally.
So that's me…kind of. There's more of course, but this is what I'll start with now. Feel free to ask questions or check out the blog to find out more. Thanks for visiting!

I love your work and your blog on Kwheezy, I tried the first one and came away with the belief that it needed some more work, I am glad to see that they did alot of work on it, I am like you in alot of ways, I mentor pre-teens at my church and I use whatever God gives me, it turns out that just like me they love paper airplanes. Origami is the gateway to their attention, and it helps that I love it, So I guess I am saying that I am proud of you as a person in all your endeavors and protecting me and family. You are able to do that and serve our master too, is a testament of the grace of God, and those that have faith in him. I love computers too, everything about them. I love you and will be praying for you and all the brave people that serve with you. God bless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am extremely grateful for your response on my blog. You're doing God's work where you are, and we need as many examples of that as we can get. Please feel free to come back and visit the blog often, both for Linux and Christianity, and contribute as often as you can!

How's being a Christian working out in the Navy with all this gay friendly stuff going on? Just saw a picture of an Army female planting a kiss on her sin partner at CNN; makes me sick. Gives muslims ever more reason to hate us. I don't care what anyone says, this country is headed down the sewer.

I think you're a very angry person. That's too bad, but I guess it's reality for many people. I've seen no reduction in readiness because of gays serving openly. I realize I'm just one guy on one ship, but gays in the military isn't the problem.

Budget cuts on the other hand...

And who cares if Muslims hate us?
