Hope Floats. Checks Float. Boats Float.
But what about a 4X4 piece of particle board with 30 milk jugs sealed with air and 10 two liter bottles tied to it?
My 14-year old son, Mark, dreamt it up. It is for a "recycle regatta" we are having with a youth group tonight and while I'm sure there is a physics formula that will tell you…Continue
I heard a great quote at a homeschooling convention recently. It was something to the effect that as parents, part of our job is to help our children become learners, not students. Plenty of people can memorize facts and spit them back. What are we doing to inspire love of learning?
This excerpt (from What the Best College…Continue
In the classic film, A League of Their Own, Manager Jimmy Dugan, a washed up, alcoholic, former major leaguer, is hired to manage a traveling women’s baseball team during World War Two. At the height of the movie, Dugan, played by Oscar-winner Tom Hanks, explodes on his right fielder for making a bad throw. She responds by bursting into tears, eliciting Dugan's now famous rant: “ARE YOU…
As you have probably heard by now, for my birthday I received a Traeger Smoker from my wonderful wife. It's one of those gifts that you truly cherish; unlike gifts received that we wish we could take back and keep the cash. In the first week of having the grill, I used it three times: ribs, smoked meatballs and smoked turkey.…Continue

Sometimes it is just hard to get started on your projects. You sit and think through them time and time again. You reason in your head that you want to do it or want to get it done. But somehow, you look up days later and have done little to make progress, if anything at all.
The discussion has been had at times, that if you do not act on something then you really do not believe in it. I will say that I can’t really argue with the statement; though it really hurts to realize…Continue

So what are you doing today that you weren’t doing yesterday?
Many of us are re-living our days like a broken a record because we don’t expect anything different.
We may say we’d like the world to change, but until we expect a different outlook on life, a…Continue

When I was growing up, there was a cartoon where a mad scientist hooked up a machine to the hero's brain and he could see all of his thoughts. "Cool!" I thought. But after a little bit more thinking about it, it actually didn't seem that…Continue

If you ran into your six-year-old self and you listened to the conversation about how you'd be when you grow up, what would that six-year-old have to say about your progress thus far?
Many find themselves in accidental careers. A job opening appeared at the right time and the right place, which lead to other…Continue

I’m not suggesting that you display a lack of humility, bragging about your abilities. That is clearly poor form.
But if you have struggled with self-esteem issues most of your life-if you have honestly felt like you weren’t good at…Continue
I believe that Life will give what you ask of it. When given the choice, I'd much rather drive a Jaguar over a Ford Taurus.
My wife and I have yet to buy a car in a calculated manner. I'm always thinking what I would like to drive next, occasionally I'll even test drive and price…Continue
Two weeks ago I turned 34. It was my choice for dinner and I was craving something authentic and also something that I had not tried before. Curry in a Hurry has been around for a long time and it immediately came to mind. It's one of those places that you drive past often and always say "I should go there sometime." Before you know it, 10 years has gone by.
Their Lamb Curry was wonderful. The perfect ending to a birthday. The perfect beginning was a new Traeger Grill.…Continue

Sometimes I get on a classical music fix and start listening to that for a while. I tend to go all the way around the clock with styles and genres not because music styles get boring to me, but because I like the thought of hearing something fresh and new…Continue
On July 5, 2012 shortly after 10:34 p.m., we were introduced to each other be it for a brief moment. The brevity was understandable given the circumstances of a very long, but joyful day in the lineage of our Tribe. The new Mom and Dad were more than worthy of “Best Supporting Actress and Actor” as Naomi Grace took center stage as the Leading Lady on this day, given she was the newly welcomed addition to their now threesome!
Gammy and Papa were overjoyed at the arrival of…Continue
Tough Times or learning opportunity
If you are human you go through tough times and problems. Dozens of books have been sold with techniques and principles to help you avoid them. But, somehow we still have tough times no matter what advice we follow. If you are a Christian, like me, we sometimes have been led to believe that if we try hard enough or believe more we will be rescued from trouble and tough times. In the book, When Hard times come,…Continue
This has been my year for medical stuff. Yes, stuff. I had surgery in February, five thingies removed from my skin and biopsied in June, skin cancers removed in July, and blood tests along the way. My most recent blood test was an “Executive Panel”. (If you are a blue-collar worker, do you still get an “Executive Panel”? Hmm???) Now I have a bruise, which is a very interesting shade of green, on the bend of my left arm. The blood test was painless, thankfully, but the bruise looks…Continue
I serve on my local Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity. My church hosted a home buying seminar yesterday and the regular Habitat folks who do "outreach" presentations were not available to present, so I willingly volunteered. Yesterday, I broke the ice. I hadn't "spoken" in public for a while, and I was prepared, energized, and well able to handle the task. …Continue
