Our culture has accepted two huge lies … a Rick Warren #quote

| August 4, 2019

Rick Warren has one of the more fitting quotes for our current cultural divide: “Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are […]

Happy New Year – Make the most of each day this 2019

| January 1, 2019

This year our our 2018 Christmas letter included a quote by the Dalai Lama and it reminds me that our time on earth is finite. Once a grain of sand has passed through the hour glass, it is gone … so make each day count this 2019. There are only two days in the year […]

If we coddle, protect and give, are we doing a disservice?

| June 19, 2018

I generally do not read longer Facebook posts, but while scanning a few friends comments on Father’s Day remembering their dads, Kathy Pangborn (good friend and neighbor of my inlaws) reposted a story that had me remembering the different father-types that I knew. Neither my mother or father-in-laws’ or mother or fathers’ parents (my grandparents) […]

Learning the New American way of Life in the Obamaconomy

| February 8, 2016

It is well past time that we elect representatives with a little more commonsense than the ones who churned out “feel good” public assistance help from Washington DC and many state houses. They love handing out “other people’s money.”  Perhaps they think of themselves as do-gooders and either, don’t see or don’t care, that  the […]

The State–Obama Democrats vs Kennedy Democrats

| December 9, 2014

One wonders if today’s Democrats blindly following President Barack Obama and his administration’s goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” even remember what it was like to support a leader who understood our democracy?John F. Kennedy knew what it was to believe and fight for the words and principles which founded this country. […]

Procrastination when it comes to filing taxes. Will I ever change?

| April 16, 2011

Tax time is looming and per-usual I’m overly optimistic in thinking the longer I wait, the less I’ll have to pay. As the founder of The Navigators in 1933 wrote: "The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started." Today, and for the last month, I have epitomized the point of Dawson […]
