Today is very different than when many of us were children.  As I reflect back on my college days, I’m thankful that Social Media was not what it is today.  In today’s world, the lens of society through Social Media is everywhere.  Whether it’s a company and their product, an athlete or a young adult that is caught [...]

I was working late, but had to run out to Publix to grab something for the next day. I was stressed out. Feeling work pressure and kind of feeling sorry for myself. I checked out and started to hustle out of the store back to my car so I could get back to working on [...]

Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow and in America it is a time to offer thanks, of family gatherings and holiday meals. A time of eating too much turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie.

October 27th, 2010 No Comments

Heard some crazy stories about some of the Homecoming festivities.   Some good kids making bad decisions.  Scares the crap out of me.  As parents we can only hope the values we’ve instilled in our children will protect them and they can fight against the peer pressure that is the constant companion of a teenager.  I just [...]

Political Correctness is OUT OF CONTROL

October 22nd, 2010 No Comments

I don’t feel this is the proper forum for me to spout my political beliefs.  And, just because I embedded an O’Reilly video, don’t think I agree with everything he rants on about.  Some I do, some I don’t.  I do, however, feel a grave injustice was done this week.  Freedom of Speech is one of [...]
