It’s Your Choice

“NOW” DOESN’T EXIST August 11, 2016

If you think about the concept of “Now” you quickly realize there is no such thing in any practical sense.  “Now” is too fleeting; too short.  As soon as you say “Now” it is over, gone.  Suddenly you are thrust into the future and the prior “Now” is simply in the past.  So what, you…

I’VE MADE SOME NEW CHOICES August 10, 2016

If you follow this at all (all 2 or 3 of you – maybe more someday) you’ll notice I haven’t posted in a long time.  That’s because I’ve gone through a number of life event changes.  Things/events that can make or break a person.  I’ve decided to succeed. First, I’m now retired about 4 years…

GENEROSITY PANIC February 11, 2016

The Holidays are now over and spring is in the air.  So, before I start working in the yard, here’s my panicky story of a special Christmas.

COVERED IN MUD October 29, 2014

I recently met a young woman who is working in my crawl space.  Sound crazy?  Yeah, it kind of is.  So here’s the story. We recently discovered we have water in our crawl space – a lot of water.  Not good.  Called a company that specializes in crawl spaces.  Yeah, there are such people.  He…

This is all new to me and I’m nervous about self promoting.  It is uncomfortable.  But, the reality is, if you’re uncomfortable doing something…

ICE CREAM AND CIRCUMSTANCE September 3, 2014

We, as individuals, know better.  We seem to understand future but react in the present.  Give a child a choice of an ice cream cone now or one every day for the next week but not one now.  Most, I believe, will go for the cone now!  Then tomorrow they will want the  week’s deal…

EVEN LOUSY CHOICES ARE BETTER THAN NONE August 28, 2014

Ever make a really dumb choice?  Well, yeah!  Most people have/do. So what?  Well, as long as you don’t kill yourself or somebody else, at least you made a choice.  Good for you! Imagine the alternative.  Or maybe you’re living the alternative?  That is, not making any real choices in your life.  To me, that’s…

BOILING FROGS August 3, 2014

We seem to use frogs for a lot of experiments.  We learn lessons for our lives from them.  Maybe that’s partly why they are disappearing.  Anyway, one experiment I’ve been told about repeatedly is that if you drop a frog into a pot of boiling water it will immediately feel the heat and jump out. …
