These are the folks who, every time someone brings them a new idea or an invitation to an event or meeting, immediately say “NO!” before they have any clue whatsoever as to what they are saying “NO!”. “NO!” is a complete se...

I found the above photo while surfing the internet last week. It reminded me of a time in the 1950s when I was a wee lad living in a western suburb of Denver. I was probably ten or eleven when my parents and I went to a trailer exposition like the one shown above. We were not planning on moving i...

I am a firm believer that I define and create my own destiny. For many years, I was a counselor. During those days, I remember so many clients who came into my office with problems that were taken right from their lineage. When I asked why they were following their family norms, they would say, "...

Do you have a bucket list? I’ve never liked that term nor understood where it came from. A bucket list? To me a bucket is something you use to feed or water the horse, or use to hold sudsy hot water for scrubbing. Nevertheless, I do understand the meaning, so – onward. If you do have a bucket lis...
