    Steve & Toni go to ATO 

    ATO stands for After The Order. ATO is a christian rock band based out of Kearney, Nebraska. We were introduced to ATO by our friend Justin Debus.

    ATO’s sound is awsome. We love their music. “Bought the CD. Bought the Shirt.”

    Now, we’re out to start a new web site all about the band. Hopefully, we’ll turn it into a place much like their “official” web site at aftertheorder.com.

    We went to their latest concert here in Lincoln. Here are some of the pictures we took. This will be are first set of “gallery” shots for the new website.

    Side Note: Check out Steve wearing his ATO t-shirt in New York City with Homer Simpson.

    Steve takes trip to NYC 

    Ameritas sent me and another web developer (Larry) to New York City for 1 week of software training in August. It was during the week of the ‘blackout 2003’. I took a number of pictures from the time I spent site see-ing.

    On Sunday, I arrived in Newark, NJ and took a cab to New York City. I checked into the “Holiday Inn Wall Street”. That night, I saw Time Square and the World Trade Center site.

    On Monday, I started class, saw the Brookyln Bridge, and took pictures of the Statue of Liberty at night.

    On Tuesday, I went to the top of the Empire State Building. I also got to visit B&H Photo – – which is an awsome audio/video store in NYC.

    On Wednesday, I went to Staten Island and cruised around the Statue of Liberty. That day I took 119 pictures.

    On Thursday (BLACKOUT day), I ate at a restraunt named ‘Nebraska’. I got on the ferry to go out to the Statue of Liberty; but got kicked off when the power went out. But I did get on a harbor cruise ship which went around the statue. I didn’t get to go anywhere else. The entire subway system was shut down.

    On Friday (day after BLACKOUT), the city was still at a stand-still. Hardly anything was open. Most of NY was still out of power. I was able to get in my hotel room the night before. But had to sleep without any air conditioning or water. I did get to see the NY stock exchange guarded heavily, subway entrances locked, huge buildings without power, and stores that were (normally open 24×7) closed. I did get a picture with Homer Simpson.

    On Saturday, I left New York and (due to a late plane take-off) stayed in St. Louis Saturday night. I didn’t take any pictures there. I didn’t have my luggage. It was at the airport. It made for an interesting day. The $35 room in St. Louis was BIGGER then the Wall Street District hotel room I had in NYC.
