Fran's Friday Forum...Who Is At The Center Of Your Universe...??? - 07/30/10 10:48 AM
Who is at the center of YOUR Universe...??? It's a shame that modern technology in electronics has eliminated most all STATIC from our airwaves...else, we may be able to easily comprehend what it's like when we are not communicating on the right wavelength.......noise, static, chaos, miscommunication, and anarchy, instead of unity...As I've written many times before about priorities, balance, juggling, moderation, and the like, many still don't get it...!!!Focus, is the key...and awareness is the door through which we must walk...Simply put, if we don't know God or have a relationship with Him...Upon Whom do we focus...And therein lie all the (10 comments)
Fran’s Friday Forum...Open Letter To NON-COACHING Parents Of Little Leaguers...!!! - 07/24/10 07:01 PM
Right off the top...this is NOT a rant, it is NOT aimed at demeaning coaches, and it is NOT being written without many hours of careful reflection both as a Coach/Parent AND a Spectator/Parent..I have had the wonderful opportunity to experience both...!!! How did you feel when the coaches kids played nearly every inning of every game while your kids warmed the bench... When you registered your kids to play football, baseball, basketball or whatever, were you told they would receive the finest instruction only to find out that your kids were merely pawns that permitted the coaches and their kids (9 comments)
Fran’s Friday Forum.......Only...On Tuesday...!!! - 07/20/10 11:08 AM
Just getting off another weekend of tournament baseball...my main laptop computer is still out of commission...and I need a small window of opportunity between thunderstorms and baseball to get the lawn mowed...!!! That's the extent of my apologies for not posting regularly lately... Hoping to get my computer back on line and have some free time between the end of July and the beginning of Midget Football and Fall Baseball... Last Sunday we celebrated my Aunt Catherine's 90th birthday. It was a great affair...she seemed surprised by it all and was overwhelmed by the large number of guests, including her only (8 comments)
What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up???...And A Career Suggestion...!!! - 07/10/10 11:37 AM
If you had the kind of childhood I did you had plenty of grownups around all the time...AND... You would be asked repeatedly the question in the title to this post...WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP...? I don't recall how I responded to these oft asked inquiries, but I know some expected me to be a doctor, and some expected to have a priest in the family... And in some respects these expectations have been fulfilled...let me explain... Of course I have no college degrees of any kind...And I maintain a strong distaste for blood...And I enjoy (18 comments)
Fran’s Friday Forum...Two Computers Byte The Dust...!!! - 07/09/10 12:05 PM
What an unlucky week...two computers bite the dust...My TOSHIBA laptop of many years...victim of some nasty trojan virus...AND... My netbook...cracked glass screen... So while I'm mourning their passing in the excessive heat advisory conditions of the Northeast... My thoughts will turn to the District Baseball Tournament this weekend... Have a great weekend, and enjoy A/C or good baseball...!!! Oh, BTW, any suggestions for a computer replacement...???
P.S. Please ignore the lack of graphics...this post written on my son Justin's borrowed computer...!!! (7 comments)
Tender Gender...The Way God Made Us...??? - 07/08/10 10:31 AM
I was raised and taught by both instruction and example that women were to be respected and placed on a pedestal and honored as THE FAIRER SEX...The women's lib movement and other social, economic, and legal pressures have attacked and keep attacking that assertion...SO...Are women to be treated differently than men...Are they THE FAIRER SEX...???When the women in my family stop asking the men to open jars and bottles with tight lids...When the women in my family start throwing a baseball like males throw it...When the females in my family can beat the men at arm wrestling...When the vanities in our (8 comments)
Fran’s Friday Forum...How To Squeeze Ten Pounds Into An Eight Pound Bag...!!! - 07/02/10 03:23 PM
There's an old adage that warns us when we're carrying too much baggage...or at least more baggage than we can handle..."You can't get 10 pounds of something into a 5 pound bag..." I've found on my recent search for a car replacement that the same is true for automobiles. When you're trying to haul 8 or more passengers, you just can't do it in most of today's 5, 6, or 7 passenger vehicles. Oh, I remember the good old days when you opened the rear door in one of those big old sedans or station wagons and just piled in the (9 comments)
