Remembering Those Who Served

Yelping Dogs

May 26, 2011

There’s an old saying that goes something like this: when you throw a rock into a pack of dogs … the one that yelps is the one who got hit. Apparently I have a growing fan base of readers who love to discuss my posts elsewhere. They are upset because I don’t take comments. Nope. This […]

Is There A Doctor “Phil” In The House?

May 25, 2011

Oprah made Dr Phil a household name with his guest appearances on her show. Then he launched his own program which is now up to nearly 1,500 installments. Dr Phil’s homespun “get real” advice has made hugely popular with some and hated by others. Critics have called his credentials into play and dismiss his over […]

This Ole School House

May 24, 2011

It was the end of an era this morning as Building 4 (on the Temple Baptist Church campus) which houses the High School of Temple Christian School in Titusville, FL was officially retired. For 17 years it has been the place where students caught a vision of what they could be and what they could […]

Licensed to Drive

May 20, 2011

She did it! My oldest is now a licensed driver. Yes, I let her take the car on her own the very same day. She and a friend went to Starbucks and then cruised around a little. It was only 4 O’clock in the afternoon. I remember when I got my license. My father told me […]

Insecure Leaders

May 19, 2011

They like to be complimented and when you withhold one for more than an hour they want to know, “Is everything okay? Are you mad at me?” Many times these people are capable, qualified individuals who, […]

Blessing Smells Like Fresh Cut Grass

May 15, 2011

It’s funny how our senses trigger memories and feelings. Today I did the “it’s Saturday morning so mow the yard” thing before my son’s baseball game.  After having lived most of my life in Upstate New York … Central Florida takes some getting used to. I come from rural farm land country where the grass […]

Move Over Mini Van Moms…

May 12, 2011

Yes, I drive a mini van. It’s true. I actually like my mini van. There was a day that like most red blooded American males I loved fast cars, luxary cars, cars with real beef under the hood. Call me domesticated … but I like my mini van. Now, I certainly wouldn’t turn down the […]


May 7, 2011

So last night my wife and I chaperoned our Christian school prom alternative. First there is all the behind the scenes stuff of getting venues lined up, contracts signed, money collected, and everything else it takes for one of these events to happen. Then there are the issues of young people, dates, drama, dress code, […]

No Tears … No Cheers

May 3, 2011

On May 1, 2011 it was confirmed that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by US Navy Seals. Do you know who else died on May 1st? Adolph Hitler … May 1, 1945 After the US won World War II with the unconditional surrender of Japan following two Atom Bomb attacks which killed hundreds of […]
