Didn’t See That Coming

Didn’t See That Coming

Until this post, I've used my blog to share thoughts in more of a story format. I can't say for sure that this will be the one and only time I break my short lived tradition or not, but I had a thought to share and figured why not share it here! As you may have...

Goals, Who Needs ‘Em!

Goals, Who Needs ‘Em!

I recently caught myself engaging in the dangerous past time of reminiscing. I know, you're asking yourself, "how is reminiscing dangerous exactly?" But the truth of the matter is that it's a very dangerous thing to do, to remember the good old day's; the ones that...

Boxes

Boxes

Boxes. Cardboard, plastic, wood & metal. We use them to ship things, store things and organize things. We live in boxes, work in boxes and commute back and forth in boxes. They come in many shapes and sizes and do make our lives better in many ways, but boxes take...

Good Deals Gone Bad

Good Deals Gone Bad

I think most people would agree that a good deal is always better than no deal at all when it comes to the stuff we buy. Whether it’s a discount on something as big as a home or car, all the way down to coupons that offer us that ‘feel good’ deal of pennies saved, a...

Cell Phones And Brain Cells

Cell Phones And Brain Cells

I’m proud to admit that I’ve managed to keep the cell phone number I was given when I made my very first purchase many years ago! While it’s hard to believe how long that’s actually been, this story isn’t meant to be one of reminiscing and day dreaming about days gone...

Little Green Men (And Girls)

Little Green Men (And Girls)

When I was a kid, believe it or not, I did some stupid things! I remember playing with a friend of mine once in my parents basement, getting into things we should have left alone. Working our way to a stack of boxes, we decided for some reason that it was important to...

Why I Don’t Build Stuff

Why I Don’t Build Stuff

It's important for most men to have a collection of tools in the garage, but knowing how to use them, well that's a given, right? WRONG! Some people have this crazy idea that just because a man owns, say a power saw for example, that he knows how to properly use it....

Chatting with Barbie

Chatting with Barbie

My 3 year daughter Vala is 100% girl! She came into my bedroom the other day wearing her favorite color (pink) from head to toe, insisting that Barbie wanted to talk to me as she handed me her pink Barbie phone.   After my failed attempt to convince her that...
