It has been an interesting year, to say the least. Looking back, I have a lot to be thankful for. Sure, there were many unpleasant moments, but I’m not the sort to dwell on the negative… not anymore. These days, people’s memories are measured with the photos they take on their cell phone. I have … More Year in Review
I think I’ve figured out one of the biggest reasons the world seems to be on fire. People have forgotten how to compromise. We live in an all or nothing world, and it’s killing us. We must all agree on everything or we can’t be friends. We have to belong to the same religion or … More All or Nothing
I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter lately about a modern revamp of the song Baby It’s Cold Outside written by Frank Loesser in 1944. The song was written for the movie Neptune’s Daughter which premiered in 1949. Many artists have covered the song over the decades since it debuted. I must confess, it ranks … More Baby It’s Cold Outside
I don’t like giving up. Quitters never win. Or do they? I seem to be doing a lot of quitting lately. Am I setting the right example for my son? In school, quitting is a bad thing. Dropping out of high school changes your life, and not for the better. It affects your ability to … More That Time I Accepted That I’m a Quitter
Okay, let’s take a time out for a second. This was the strangest election we’ve ever seen. After all, these are strange times. Now, I could give you a run-down of the facts and figures. I could put down a pretty good argument with my viewpoint for your pleasure or discomfort. Frankly, nobody cares what … More Grow Up, America!
I hope you researched your candidates. I hope you’re up to date on current events. I hope you looked at the big picture before a ballot was cast. Voting based on a single issue is so short sighted. I hope you payed attention in history classes. As Edmond Burke once said, “Know your history, or … More A Citizen’s Right
My son and I are enjoying our summer vacation so far, and we were long overdue for the adventures of our past. Things that were once important to us are being addressed again. We finally have some breathing room to do that. A couple of outings reminded me that although we’ve gotten a little lost … More Accepting Defeat for the win
Yesterday, I opened my doors to the heavenly aroma of honeysuckle. But, that can’t be! It’s too early for those tasty flowers to be blooming, isn’t it? Well, apparently not. A recent warm spell has indeed encouraged them to bloom along with the wild roses that have taken up residence in a thicket near the … More One step forward, a few steps back
About a year ago, I was picking up some pizza for dinner, and I made a huge mistake. I’m not sure how, but I let my phone get stolen. Fifteen minutes later, I was home checking my emails when I realized someone was purchasing apps on my phone with credits from my Amazon account. It … More The karma of being Sincere
I think honesty is usually the best policy. For me, it goes back to the golden rule. I try to treat others the way I would expect to be treated. Unfortunately, a lot of people hate me for that. It’s not that I’m always saying mean things to or about people. But, I do try to … More The Secret
