Lily Katheryn Svetlin will be here soon and to celebrate, we are starting a pool to guess the birth weight of our daughter who will be
arriving soon. The link for the Lily birth weight guess pool is up and functional to the left. Click on it in order to get to the page to register and submit a guess for $3.
I am also thinking about a pool for the ounce part of the weight where it will be $10 to get in. I will randomly assign each person to an ounce 0-15. Whoever hits the ounce gets $100 and the next highest/lowest gets $30. Of course if it is 15, 0 and 14 would get the $30 and if it is 0 then 15 and 1 would get the $30
Send me an email if interested. First 16 to respond get in.
I have created a spreadsheet that better analyzes the fantasy football situation for the Yahoo fantasy football. It has record vs. opponent and total points scored for and against, along with an overall record versus everyone for the season. Here is a link to it.
There is now a link to the pool for predicting Aaron's Arrival on the left hand side of the pages.
It will only cost 2 bucks per entry with the winner taking the gold. Sign up and take a stab and you may win
Welcoming our son soon,
The survivor page is now updated with the player-survivor match ups for Exile Island. I will probably be one of the first five out along with Kathy, but what else is new. I ran the player matchup 12 times since this is the 12th season of survivor, hopefully it'll be cool with the island and such.
On the night of January 17th, I was involved in a real bad car accident. I survived and I don't believe that the other car had any major injuries either. Here are some pictures of the aftermath of my car. I'm just happy that I am alive right now. Thanks to all my family and friends for their love and concern and to my guardian angels for watching over me during the accident.
I now have built a Fantasy Football League at Yahoo!. If you are interested in
signing up just follow the above link. The way it works is you pick your players from a list and rank them. When everyone is done ranking the players
available for picking then I will hit the ready status for the league and then based on pick position and rankings, your team will be selected. Any leftover
players will then be considered free agents and you can pick them up. The name of the league is "Svetlin.net Fantasy Football" and the password in order
to form a team in that league is "football". This way only those who know about it can sign up.
Also for those interested, the Race the Fraggle pages have been updated so you can view prior years and show
the current years entries instead of just showing 2003's results.
More photos of Derrek have been uploaded for your viewing pleasure. Also the football page is all set to
go. If you forgot your email, just go ahead and shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get back to you with your login/password.
We finally have a new member in the family, Derrek Brian Osika. Kerri gave birth to him at 11:01 AM today. He came in weighing 8 lbs and 8 oz.. He is the cutest little guy
I have seen in a long long time. I can't believe that I am now an uncle to somebody. A godfather and an uncle in the same year, it blows my
mind. I love the little guy all ready. Congratulations Bear and Steve and may he grow up to be a great White Sox fan!!! I'm sure he'll grow
up great in such a loving family. I love you Derrek!!! Welcome to the family!!!
Here are some photos of Derrek. Congratulations!!!!
Congratulations to Justin and Crystal on the birth of their daughter Sydney Victoria (9lbs 10oz.), and the addition of Andrew's new
sister on February 10, 2004. May she bring you lots of love and joy. Here are some photos of Sydney. Congratulations!!!!
The wedding countdown is over. WE MADE IT!!! Thanks to all of our family and friends for making the day special and memorable
for us. We love you all.
-Keith and Kathy Svetlin
Two years ago we all know what happened. Watch some vidoeo of it and get ticked off again. It is worth it to
remember what they did to all those lives and still are doing to the survivors and the families of the victims.
Another few weeks go by and another wedding. This time it was my baby sister who I always have had to look out
for. But it is not like I lost my sister, but I gained a brother and I am happy to have him as part of the family. I
wish all the happiness and love out to them and I know that they will be eternally happy forever. Being busy with the
wedding and all, I still haven't got around to naming all the photos(180 some photos in total), so they are not
posted yet to the web site. Look for the Osika wedding page to be up and running some time on Monday the 12th of May
night. There are only about 100 more photos to name so it shouldn't be too bad. In the meantime here is a sneak peek at
what you can see.
Great weekend this past weekend. Got to enjoy Justin and Crystal's wedding and I was honored to be
a groomsmen in their wedding. I know that they will always be happy together. To see photos that I took of
their wedding just click on the link to the left for MacLean Wedding. Since I was
doing some changes I also put the initial page of the Fraggle Cam, so now you
can see me in all my glory and see if I am there or not. In the future there will be a response page on the bottom
so that you may leave a message if you see me on there. I will then try to have the page automatically notify me
so that I may put a response on the page. It will be like a psuedo-one way web cam talk room where the last 5
messages that people leave will be listed there. Be sure to check out more changes in the near future since I will
be putting up photos from my sister's wedding and then in December my wedding. Take it easy everyone and thanks
for checking out the page. Here is a shocking photo from the wedding!
Congratulations to Mark Thill and his wife Carla on the birth of their baby ASHLEY ANNE THILL born on December 11, 2002!!!!
Way to go you two! September 11, 2002 - Keith Svetlin
This page will be black today in memorial of those who died one year ago for no reason. May they rest in
peace and let them act as a constant reminder of how precious life is. September 6, 2002 - Keith Svetlin
Football Season is here among us yet again!!! Time to get your picks going on the web site. New features this year include adding

Message Board UP and Running Again
Time to start the smack talking again just in time for the football season.
Enjoy the site, have a good time. Please email me with any suggestions concerning the web site or how to use the football
section. Thanks. -Keith
Looking for suggestions on this main page. Maybe better looking links to all the different parts
just for the main page. Swirling graphics or something, maybe graphical buttons? Any ideas
would be appreciated. Thanks.
I found this picture taken from Grand Central Station in New York City on a web site on the internet. Take a look at the poem that somebody
taped on to the photograph. I found this to be one of the best tributes to the victims of the September 11th disaster. It is simply amazing
still how that affected everyone in the world.
Been doing a lot of major overhaul to the web site, just haven't been updating this main page!!! I got done redoing all of the pages so that the
menu gets called dynamically. Added entire 2-man section to the site along with the graphics for it. Updated the message board so that now messages
that are listed for the current day are shown in yellow so it will be easier to see what messages are newer to the board. Also changed the way the time
was being displayed for the messages. Instead of military time, the time is now listed with am/pm and is now central standard time. The server is located
in Atlanta and there was that difference that was shown on the messages being posted. Their time seems to be off by about 12 minutes though on the time,
I can live with that though :P. Just got done tonight putting up the poll page. Just go ahead and click on it to the right to do the
poll for the week. I'm not quite sure how often it will be updated. Maybe we can have different people suggest ideas and then put those questions up for
a poll. This should be cool with all the shit that we like to do with asking questions. I already have about 4-9 questions in my head that can be put there.
I might even have a fill in for it that you can select. A lot of the changes that were put in were internal and now it is easier then ever for me to add
or delete pages to the web site with easy navigation. The football page was also updated majorly and a good couple of weeks was spent getting it ready
for the 2001 season. It will be updated easier with scores/winners. A few minor changes still need to be done to it. I have a couple more ideas brewing in my
head like a miniature golf page for the area, my old where cops hide out page, a links page for places I like to visit, and also the parker chronicles still
need to be added to the two-man page. Enough for this update, but since I haven't done it to this page for awhile I suppose I needed to put all this in here.
Added link to region rats on the menu. Also updated the friends page. Just dummy pages out
of there now, but plan on putting some pages with meat on them up soon. Going to start working on a movie page also coming up. Keep on giving my ideas
of what you want along with what you think is cool. I want to make this a kick ass site. Later.
Added number of the picture on the vegas page even though you can already just click on the image and it will open up in a new window.
Also changed the message board so that it will only display the last 50 messages. You can still see all of them by clicking the link
at the top of the page. New ideas based on message board posts I like and will implement in the new future is the Stemp Out of Control
page. It might as well be put somewhere permanent since some day I will lose the paper. And if Shady wants to post about police all you
have to do is send me an email and I'll put it up on the site. Just word it how you want. Later.
I believe that this update is a little bit easier to see. First off the menu has now changed on the left hand side of MOST pages.
The coloring is screwy against a dark background and makes it harder to see. So because of this, when background images start being
changed, those will become obsolete then in the future if a darker background is needed on a page. Second off, the friends page
has now been implemented! Right now you can click on a person in the image and a page will then appear about them. Right now there are
no pages associated with the links so it will just be a dummy no page found message. By tomorrow though they will be up. I modified the message
board to have a different background and coloring. I figured I'd start with that since most people go there the most. If you got any
comments or suggestions about it and whether you like it or not just post a message on the board or call me or send me an email.
I had to change the title up on this page also to mix the old school classic "Realm of the Fraggle" web site with this new one. Later.
Hey notice something different about the site? Well there are no more frames on any of the pages.
What are frames and why should you care? Well, now it will be easier to update backgrounds and graphics and
the ability to make the web page much more colorful and user friendly is now possible. Also put up my old site
with another link on the left hand side. Now you don't have to leave Svetlin.net to play the legendary
"Find my Family" game!!! More updates to come soon. Later.
Hey! The Survivor Page is now up. Go take a look at what I think about
the show and individual people in the Outback. I am going to be giving a wrap-up every week concerning how I felt about
the show along with emails that people send to me about the show. If you all want to write what you thought
about the show or any of the people on it just send me an email and I'll put it up. There are 17 new pages
total, so that is a good start on something huge. Hope you enjoy it.
Just updated the greeting by adding a button that allows you to just skip the intro(since many are
probably sick of sitting through that, I know it was getting to me also). Not much else, been pretty
busy with work and racquetball and such, hopefully get some stuff going on here this weekend.
Vegas page is up finally. Go take a look at all the pictures
from the Vegas vacation that occurred in July of 2000. I put some stuff there so if you
can think of some names and/or which ones I should remove, let me know by the number
of the photo. Take it easy and enjoy the pics.
Changed the Intro again to me singing and stuff. It seems more appropriate for some
reason than anything else I can come up with. Added some messages to the message board
and added some more poker games thanks to Game.
I appreciate that, any input is always welcome! Later
Changed the intro getting in here. Too vulgar? Let me know. I had to get rid of that
ball that was going around for no reason. It was just my first attempt at animation
using that program so... I'm thinking about having a kareoke page with a different song
every time and then have people guess what song it is. Just an idea..
Put up "Region Rats", a web
site that Game is working on. Nothing new tomorrow with it being Valentines Day and
all. Happy Valentines to all the people in the world especially in Norway. Also
a special shout out to the people from Chad. Need sleep....
-Keith February 12, 2001 - Keith Svetlin
Added the correct link to the main page that is listed here. Updated
the vegas link and added the message board,
so go check those out. The message board will be useful for us to just
make a topic then people can reply on it to others. Also added the poker page to
the web site. If you guys want to contribute and post new games with
descriptions, just send me an email to me.
Looks like this ball is starting to roll!!! This weekend will be huge once
I start getting cool graphics up instead of just mainly text. I am going
to be working on the profiles next. If you want your own personal one just
go ahead and email a description. The football picks page now opens in its own
window because of backgrounds that don't match up.
-KeithFebruary 11, 2001 - Keith Svetlin
Welcome to my web site. On it will be links that will be used for such
things as football pools, message boards, calendar events and other
things that may be going on. Feel free to post your information here
to let everyone know what is going on. I figure we can all use this
site as a tool to stay in touch and such.
