Give Yourself the Gift of Optimism - 04/25/12 12:06 PM
Give Yourself the Gift of Optimism This world is hard. It can beat you down. It can wear you out. It can cause you to become cynical. It can make you come to believe that tomorrow will be just as bad as yesterday. It can make you see the glass as always half empty, instead of half full. How we view the world is a choice we make. Well, you say, how can that be? My life is in the toilet right now…and there is no sign it is going to get any better in the foreseeable future. Friends, I am (8 comments)
Have You Ever Had an Out of Body Experience? - 04/24/12 01:13 PM
Have You Ever Had an Out of Body Experience? I am almost hesitant to even discuss this…in fact, I am not sure I have told more than 10 people what happened to me…and here I am, posting it in a blog for all to see! About 10 years ago, I broke a filling; so I called my dentist to see if I could get an appointment to have it fixed. The dentist was a friend of mine, and his wife was the receptionist; so when I called, they were able to squeeze me in that evening after I got off work. (10 comments)
Compartmentalizing God - 04/23/12 07:30 AM
Compartmentalizing God I wonder how many of you have undergone the same metamorphosis. Earlier in my life…in an effort to fit in, I tried to please everyone. To the buddies I bowled with, I was one person. I could be crude and lewd with the best of them. To my fellow workers, I could be Mr. Cold and Calculating. To my wife and kids, I could me Mr. Warm and Fuzzy. To members of my Parish, I could be Mr. Holier than Thou. I tried to be all things to all people, and by doing so…I became lost. When we think (8 comments)
The Enormity of God - 04/18/12 07:46 AM
The Enormity of God I saw an article yesterday on Yahoo regarding a new discovery by the Hubble Telescope. Coming on the heels of the Hubble’s 22nd anniversary in space, officials announced the sighting of the largest concentration of stars ever discovered. The Yahoo story said, "30 Doradus is the brightest star-forming region in our galactic neighborhood and home to the most massive stars ever seen," Hubble telescope officials wrote in an image description. "No known star-forming region in our galaxy is as large or as prolific as 30 Doradus." What is really interesting is that this huge space mass is (11 comments)
You Can Still be a Great Agent and be Nice Too - 04/12/12 09:00 AM
You Can Still be a Great Agent and be Nice Too I try my very best to treat everyone I meet as I would like to be treated. In an effort to be 100% honest and completely objective…there are times when I fail miserably. We all do. We are mere mortals…but that shouldn’t keep us from trying to be nice…even to the people on the other side of the deal. I realize I have a fiduciary responsibility to represent my client’s interests to the best of my ability. I feel I do. There are many times I have asked for price (7 comments)
A Little Boy and His Fire Truck Story Continued... - 04/10/12 10:37 AM
Last week I told the story of my little granddaughter, Casey, telling her teacher how she wanted to ride in her dad’s fire truck on spring break. Well…I have pictures to share with everyone!!!! Little Casey having fun on her dad's fire truck
Chloe driving the fire truck My son, Steven, and his wife, Heather, no sooner hit the tarmac in St Petersburg yesterday than the girls insisted that they go to see the fire truck. I just love the smiles on their faces! You know, there is a lesson we could all learn from little Chloe and Casey…and that (4 comments)

This past Sunday, members of Al Qaeda shot to death an American teacher in Yemen. Witnesses say that assailants in military uniforms drove up alongside his car on motorcycles and opened fire, killing him instantly.

He was just 29-years old. He left behind a wife and two children. Acccording to his wife, he was just simply teaching English. This Friday is Good Friday. Over 2000 years ago, Jesus died upon the cross (4 comments)
It’s Easter Season…the Pews are Starting to Fill Up! - 04/02/12 08:49 AM
It’s Easter Season…the Pews are Starting to Fill Up! I was sitting in Mass on Palm Sunday, and I noticed the church was a little more filled than usual because of the Easter season. I thought back to a Sunday in church some 36 years ago… I had just taken a job in King of Prussia, and my wife and I had moved to Pottstown, Pa. Our eldest boy, Steven, was 5-years old at the time. (He’s the little boy in the fire truck story I posted a few days ago) Our son, Michael, was a newborn; and we were all (4 comments)
