Me: Working hard. My company just bought the #2 printer in the US which is amazing for this economy. So we moved into #2. Still living in Brooklyn with the wife and 2 bambinos, but are in the process of buying in New Jersey. Got a ton of reno to do, but thats fine, i do it all on my own. i will post links here when i start, i should be running a blog with pics on a website.
my sn is gonna be 3 in nov and my daughter is gonna be 5 in april. shes already writing her name and is very smart. My son is a brute..lol..wanna get him in BJJ as soon as possible. other than that ..things are cool..

I am good on my end here in alamoghetto.. hahaha... Still doing my thing here in the AirForce. Leave to go to my training here soon, and then will be deploying early next year for 6 months.
Have a baby girl due next month, so I am pretty excited about that. Other than that just going to the gym and getting prepared to leave the family for a while.

Once again, it is good to see you back Lanzo. Look forward to the renovation updates.

I myself am now 18 years of age. I still have nagging knee injury and a period of time on crutches (for the knee) I have developed severe pain in my ciatic nerve on my left hip.

All is well though. I successfully graduated high school this year a little ahead of schedule, despite my schools best efforts to make me commit suicide in my senior year.

I take welding classes now, and am preparing for a career in this field. There is a lot of demand for that around here and my last year of school made me realize that no matter how smart I am my mind and body despise sitting down and working with my brain all day. Looking forward to the hard long days of physical labor that a career in welding will be sure to offer:)

Now my biggest focus is getting back into good shape to compete again. I haven't been in any combat sports stuff since the knee injury, and now that I can train at 100% again the results are coming in. I have three events in mind: a submission grappling tournament (which I won the teen division for last year) and a TKD tournament also in the fall. Then in the spring I should be ready for my amateur MMA debut at either 205 or 185 (depending on how much muscle I put on for the JJ tournament.)

Oh, and I also write occasionally for Sports Nickel.com (formerly informative sports.com)

C if you ever want to make more money and want the big city life, NYC can def use another welder. Maybe on the ground zero mosque. (dont do that good of a job, lol)

Bike is great i can ride for hours or triple the speednlimit i love sport touring class
Winter is coming has been a little snow but it wont stay i guess it is an elnino year so we are expecting 7-10 feet of snow .usually it is too cold for that much

We do love vegas and canadian girls : one word- wild ;)

My dad is building a 3bay garage for storage and project vehicles so i am filling it up allready plus a shop with overhead hoist and since he allready refers to several of his old trucks as mine i have an idea what is going. In there

Mlanzo: good to see you back.
Clouis: glad to here you are healed up and back on the training war path.
JimJ77: I haven't heard from Roni either lately. Did he post his picks for the Mir-Cro-Cop fight?

Scott: Good Luck in your training.

god doesnt think he's a welder ;)

sorry it seems like every third person here is a pipeline welder so we tend to tease all welders but good luck its a good trade to get into plus the better you get and the more tickets you get the better the job gets

During the whole Matt Hughes war I un-friended him.
