“Amazing What a Short Bike Ride and a Nap Can Do….”

“Amazing What a Short Bike Ride and a Nap Can Do….”

Amazing what even a short bike ride and a nap will do! This was my one line Facebook status that turned into a press of coffee and deep memories of how our blog site started, why, and the keys kept pounding.  So just a snapshot of life, and one that continues to face obstacles, dare to change, and keep doing the best you can today with an attitude of hope for a better tomorrow for yourself, your family, your community, and the world we all...

Solgave and Life Abroad-Chapter 6 (Turning a Page)

Solgave and Life Abroad-Chapter 6 (Turning a Page)

So here we are…. If it were 1987 I could have had a dramatic moment of wadding up several sheets of paper as I was a few thousand words into an “honest” blog about the journey we call life.

Life as a Polarizing Individual-One Man’s Perspective

Life as a Polarizing Individual-One Man’s Perspective

The last month has proven to be one of the more polarizing in awhile.  I can think of cosmic reasons (Solstice) and real life ones (we moved in the middle of two rounds of flu, bronchitis, and finally, the zoo of having 4 animals, a 5 year old, and 7 month old. Outside circumstances can have an effect on our “reaction” to situations. People, places, and things. Since around 1996 (when I worked on then President Clinton’s and an Arkansas...
