Let Me Spend Your Stimulus Check

Stimulus checks for the COVID19 pandemic are starting to hit bank accounts and mailboxes all over the country and I want to spend them for you. If you lost your job or business and have more needs than means, hang in there.  You are in the thoughts and prayers of more people rooting for you […]

Hiking in Heaven

I believe God speaks to us and in my case He does so with a picture snapshot.  As I start to talk about the the picture, the story it has to tell starts to unfold.  The image is persistent and the story is always encouraging. Today we laid to rest Margaret Weagley, mother of four […]

Dude! Are you wearing bracelets?

Jockeys Don’t Play Basketball

Not Unemployed

Recently I irreverently joked that my recent job change has left me temporarily “unemployed”.  Conviction came knocking on my conscious. I have not felt the rejection of the losing lot in a lay-off. I have not experienced the humility of learning I was not all that I thought I was cracked up to be. I […]

It is easy to create boring, unimaginative and ineffective presentations.  Just do a quick Google search and you will find a plethora of advice, resources and great blog posts on improving your presentation skills. In this post I wanted to collect a few of my favorite resources in one place for both myself and others […]

Politicians Think You Are an Idiot!

Ok.  Me too.  They think you and I are idiots. As local and state leaders respond to the budgetary impact of the economy induced tax base erosion, their opinion of their constituents intellect is becoming abundantly clear. Here is the politicians favorite budget plan being exercised across the country right now: Propose draconian cuts to […]
