Friday, May 4


I recently found this in the depths of my blogs that have never been published and thought, if no one else, at least Jared and Jenny would enjoy this blast from the past jem of a post.  So without further adieu I give you Jared Wiebe (the now lawyer), I'm still not sure why this was never published...

I would like to introduce my first ever guest blogger- You may know him from such bands as J-dog and the Midnight Rhythm Lords, or his more recent highly successful band Serotonin- he is in school to become a lawyer and aspires to one day rid this world of tax evasion- Ladies and Gentlemen please put your hands together for ----- Jared (aka J-rod) Thomas Wiebe.

Like Chermyl indicated my gang name is J-rod, but what she hasn't told you is that this is my first time ever blogging and this experience could be it... I may never blog again. Who knows? But what I do know is that if the counting crows call, answer because they may never call again. What I don't know is anything about blogging. I've read a fews things I thought were blogs but they turned out to be forums. And before that I had always used "Blog" as a substitute curse word. And before THAT... Well, OK, I'd better take you all back to the beginning.

In Junior High I wasn't able to type more than 5 words an hour and I only used one finger per hand. Most kids at that time worked at bettering their typing skills because in computer lab if you could type 5 Words aminute with more than two fingers you could play the graphic intense "Oregon Trial" or the original Sim City... Well I was not into square green graphics or grey boxes with half eaten rainbow apples so I stayed away from computers because at that point what did they really have to offer?

By the way - who would ever chose the stage name "Norman Gentle"? Try "Meat Loaf" or "Stir Fry"

Anyway, by high school computers had color screens and there was a free audio recording program called Cool Edit. With it I recorded my first Band's music (the first band I'll admit I was in). We ran one audio cable all the way up the stairs into the computer room, then added a bunch of messy reverb then recorded a few more vocal tracks over the main track like Buddy Holly. Back to the point - in order to record music on the computer I needed to know how to type ... so now I'm up to 5 words a minute with 2 fingers going on each hand (imagine if I could use three fingers per hand?)

And now I am blogging? I'm on the interwebs. I've decided to only guest blog instead of start my own because I would likely never update it (like I never update facebook).

Justin, Cheryl, and Ruby came to visit us in Rochester Hills, Michigan. They are our best friends and I was so glad to get into school here because we would be close to them. We see them more often than we did when they lived half an hour away in Calgary - that was both of our faults just in case that sounded rude.

Cheryl and I were talking about somehting (she was not being cogent) then Ruby said "Dada" and I said "Ruby do I have a shirt for you!!"

Well I have to go play a game now... maybe I will blog again and maybe the topics will be...

discount teeth whitening
Dog the Bounty Hunter
Dancing with the Stars
two-state solution

Soon the Sniebes will be together again!  Since this post was written- we had Myers, Jared and Jenny have had Silas and Baby (still yet to be named), they have moved back to Alberta and have a real job and a van, we moved to Ohio and are soon to move back to Alberta (we always had a van).  Life moves fast and I am grateful for good friends....


  1. Scam-Wow!

    I'm in tears - tears for the good old times. Can we pleeeeeze be there again? Let's drop a few kids and stay up late playing Settlers. Let's drive across the country, pack into one small van and stay in one small hotel room with all of us. Let's not care about money, because money doesn't matter, memories do. Seriously, I miss us.

  2. great and funny post , love the drawing.....
