Looking at life as an adventure is like opening a pandoras box. I realized that I am far from done with starting new adventures. The last year of my life has been one of the greatest, and I’m blessed to share these experiences with my loving family. This, however, is just the beginning. – Adventure Jason

I’d like to speak kind words about someone special to me who has passed on. My cousin Joanie Harris was like a Bubbi to me growing up and I will miss her greatly. Some of my fondest memories visiting Miami Beach as a child were with Joanie, her husband Joe, their children, and grandchildren. My condolences go out to all of my family.

Adventure by my brother Jason. I did a rare thing Monday night and left work early. I was going to spend a night with my family and a few friends watching a Durham Bulls Baseball game. However, what made me pick Monday was that one of the biggest baseball stars from childhood , Tony Gwynn would be present. The online story had proclaimed that Baseball Hall off Famer Tony Gwynn, one of the biggest hitters of the 80’s and 90’s would be present at the Durham Bulls Baseball Complex signing autographs and taking pictures. This was to be done from 6 P.M until 8 P.M.

Courage Classic is a three day, 157 mile ride with over 10,000 feet of mountain climbing. My friend Jordan Fleuriet is participating this year. Jordan has surpassed his personal goal of raising $400, however, his team could use some more support to reach their group goal. Jordan’s team, It’s Up To Us, is comprised of 129 other volunteer riders from this region.

Adventure Paul's BF

sam in hatttt

Samantha was profiled in the publication outlook – the magazine of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary because she is an outstanding Christian. Although I always thought of her as super-Christian (compared to this Jew)–it wasn’t until after college into her professional life that she truly accepted Jesus as an adult. Rather than summarize the article written about her–here’s a link. It’s on page 24 of the publication.

Adventure Paul and Actress Nicole

The past couple weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time with Nicole Lee Durant, an actress from Asheville NC, and also one of my best-friends since we were kids. First we built her a website to use as an online portfolio. Like most of the new sites I build, we built http://nicoleleedurant.com using a Wordpress content management system. This way she can update the site in the future herself, post new videos, pictures, and news updates.
