buctober, 2015


in  my hiatus from doing much of anything resembling blogging the last couple of months, i have totally missed being able to gush about baseball, particularly the success of both of my favorite teams, the pirates and the yankees.  the yankees, in my opinion, have exceeded expectations, and are on pace to win a wild card spot, if they can finish strong.  the pirates, on the other hand, have been very, very good.  they have the second best record in the big leagues, and have for some time.  the only problem is that the team with the best record, the st. louis cardinals (cue excessive booing here) are in the same division.  so the pirates have been chasing for months.  in any other division they'd be division winners.  and they still have a chance to do that, but, if nothing else, they have already clinched a playoff berth.  even if they lose all of the rest of their games, they will be in buctober with a chance to play for the world series.  and if any team besides the cardinals is equipped to represent the national league in the fall classic, it is these buccos.  it'll be fun to see what happens in both leagues with both of my teams.  no matter what happens, it's been a fun baseball season for me, rooting for two darn good teams.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
