Valor Apps secure website launched!

I am happy to announce that my secure online digital store, Valor Apps, is now up and running!

I will be using my new site for purchasing of all my commercial Joomla extensions! The site is run under my business name, Valor Apps. You’ll find more information on all my software. I will be updating the site in the next month or two, adding more documentation for your favorite software.

This blog site will still be used for my personal affairs, and also to promote my software in a general sense. My ultimate aim is to separate my software business from my personal blog. One of the major benefits of this is that I no longer will be sending download emails, but rather you can log into the Valor Apps site and download any software your purchase.

Thanks for your continued support, everyone!

Please stop sexualizing everything!

Hi everyone! I don’t usually post about social issues. However, this issue has been on my mind for quite some time, and I want to post my opinion on it. A few hours ago, my wife asked me if I heard about this situation about the petition to marry Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street. When I heard it, I was really floored! My reaction had nothing to do with the debate for or against homosexuality. Rather it was because I have a 3 year old daughter and she watches Sesame Street at times, and Read More

Message for Father’s Day 2011!!!

(I started to write this on father’s day. However, I only finished it on the following Saturday, 25th.)

Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers out there!

I know the day is almost done, but this the first time for the day that I have been able to be on my blog! My daughter, wife, parents and other relatives and friends wished me a happy father’s day today! It was a good day… a busy day… but, a good day!

Today, I gave a short sermon at church today for Father’s Day. I wanted to share a summary of it with you all. I hope it would help to encourage all you fathers out there to strive to be the best dad you can be. My message was based on an acrostic of the word FATHER that I devised:
