Party at Toyland, SillyCon Valley

Michael and Linda Toy were the most generous hosts we have probably ever met. They let us stay with them in their fun house near Palo Alto, Silicon Valley.


Michael (right) is an internet-legend-pioneer-geek-extraordinaire who put the Netscape Navigator team together in the 90’s. But he is more famous to us for being a warm, generous, lovely man of God who doesn’t mind the laughter of kids running through his house. I didnt get to ask him about “Undignified”, one of his current projects to inspire artists to follow in the ways of King David. When I get the chance, I will read Michael’s document on church that he has entitled “It”


Men are always happy in the house of a fellow geek.


The Toyland house is incredible. There is even a hobbit hole in the back yard.


Thanks also to Mark Scandrette for helping with the Grill.

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
