Happy Valentine’s Day To Your Family!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Yes, this day is associated with commercialism a lot. For example, two years ago, I was in a store on Christmas Eve night. Unfortunately, I saw Valentine’s Day candy already available for purchase. Despite the desire to profit from the February 14th date, don’t ignore the opportunities available to love someone close […]

Another Great Lesson From The Theater

Recently I wrote a post about “The Greatest Advice Came From The Theater.” My Drama Teacher – Mrs. Bettler – her advice from that post is wisdom that has been true for decades. Fortunately, that was not the only advice gained from my time in the theater. Instead, the next suggestion might sound familiar, “never […]

The Greatest Advice Came From the Theater

Believe it or not, but I was in the theater both in high school and college. During high school, I played a country mechanic, a cynic, a nerd where I won “Best Supporting Actor” at my school (Yea, I know. It might not have been too far from reality!), and a corrupt preacher (insert your […]

Film Critics and Life

What’s your favorite movie of all time? How did the critics grade it? Did it get a high or low score on Rotten Tomatoes? Do you even care about their critique of the film? Of course not! It’s your favorite movie after all. So, you don’t care that it has a bad storyline, you watch […]

Beautiful Perspectives

Mountain top outlooks are gorgeous. Growing up near the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky I hiked to many mountain tops. Rarely did the view disappoint, which made the journey to their summits worth the effort. At the pinnacle of each mountain, I could appreciate the view, and the path required to reach my […]

Limited Texting: Final Thoughts

Today is Fat Tuesday, which is also the day that New Orleans and Mobile celebrate Mardi Gras since Mobile is where Mardi Gras originated. As many celebrate Mardi Gras, they will also participate in Fat Tuesday before a season of fasting begins. See the day after Fat Tuesday is Ash Wednesday when many Catholics (and […]
