David a Savior has been born to
you; he is Christ the Lord."

"This is love: not that we loved God,
but that he loved us and sent his Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."

"Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more;
the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end."

Thanks for visiting Tony's Home Page. I wrote this web site not long after taking a few computer classes at a college in Rhode Island. It began as just something to give me a little practice in designing and writing code for web sites but it then involved into what you see. My little web site that I play with from time to time. I hope that you enjoy your visit and that you will come back again. Please feel free to sign the guest book located near the bottom of the page just before you leave. And never forget that you are always welcome here. The door is always open.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears
my voice and opens the door, I will come in..."
Music - I like many types of music but I especially like Christian and classical music. If you like classical music, you may like a weekly radio series called From the Top that showcases the nation's most exceptional pre-college age musicians. You can also listen to previously recorded shows right from your own computer when you visit their web site.
"I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me."
"The Lord will take great delight in you, he will quiet you
with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
"Hear this, you kings! Listen, you rulers! I will sing to the Lord,
I will sing; I will make music to the Lord, the God of Israel."
"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains
and hills will burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands."
"They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown
Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away."
"He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God."
Psalms 40:2 - 3
"You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and
clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be
silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever."
Psalm 30:11 - 12
Whale Watching - I first went on a whale watching cruise around 1990 with my brother and his family. That cruise departed from Cape Ann, Massachusetts and took us off the coast of Maine were we got to see many whales. I also went again on the same cruise in 2017 but this time with my wife. Once again, we saw many whales and even a large ocean sunfish (mola mola). I hope to go again some day.
"Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish.
But the Lord provided a great fish to swallow Jonah,
and Jonah was inside the fish three days and three nights."
Jonah 1:3 and 17
"From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the Lord his God. He said: 'In my
distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me. From the depths
of the grave I called for help, and you listened to my cry.'"
Jonah 2:1 - 2
Astronomy - I have always enjoyed gazing at the stars on a clear, dark night. How can anyone not believe in the reality of a living God after witnessing such an awesome display? Learn what the Bible says about the heavens and the earth by clicking on any one of the stars in the image below.
"Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?"
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge."
Psalm 19:1 - 2
Fishing - I enjoy both fresh and salt water fishing. My favorite fish is ...ah... fried.
"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."
Gardening - I have always enjoyed gardening. For many years I grew all kinds of flowers and vegetables in my back yard. Vegetables just seem to taste better when you grow them yourself.
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots
by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves
are always green. It has no worries in a year of
drought and never fails to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7 - 8
"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs
in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden, like a
spring whose waters never fail."
"All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever."
1 Peter 1:24 - 25
"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But
his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he
meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted
by streams of water, which yields its fruit in
season and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers."
Psalm 1:1 - 3
Baseball - Even though I do not always like to admit it, I am a Boston Red Sox fan. I have been waiting patiently all my life for them to win the World Series. Then in 2004, an unexpected thing happened. The Red Sox won the World Series by defeating the Cardinals four games to none in the best-of-seven series. Food seems to taste a little better now.
Babe Ruth might have become the greatest player Boston would ever have, if not for what Red Sox fans could point to as the single worst event ever to occur in the team's history, in 1917. That year the team was purchased by one H. Harrison Frazee, a theatrical producer who loved baseball but loved Broadway more. He saw the Red Sox as a means of financing his theatrical operations, and began selling off all of his best players to Colonel Jacob Ruppert, owner of the New York Yankees, to raise cash for a number of Broadway ventures. Babe Ruth became victim to this practice in 1920, when Frazee sold him to Ruppert for $125,000.
Ruth led the Yankees to seven American League championships and four World Series titles. He led the league in home runs many times, and the 60 he hit in 1927 set a record for the 154-game season. (Roger Maris hit 61 home runs in a 162-game season in 1961.) Ruth's lifetime total of 714 home runs is second only to the 755 hit by Hank Aaron. With a .342 lifetime batting average for 22 seasons of play, many consider Babe Ruth the game's greatest player.
The Red Sox were devastated from the loss of Babe Ruth. They had won five of the first fifteen World Series, but would not even play in another for 28 years! Before 2004, they had not won a World Series since 1918.
"Do you know that in a race all the runners run, but only
one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone
who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get
a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever."
1 Corinthians 9:24 - 25
"I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that
day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."
2 Timothy 4:7 - 8

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working
for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will
receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving."

"You may say to yourself, 'My power and the strength of my hands have
produced this wealth for me.' But remember the LORD your God,
for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth..."
