Haven't Blogged Cause It Hasn't Been Pretty

Thursday, September 30, 2010      3 comments

Some sparklers asked why I haven't blogged lately. My theory is if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything. My last several blogs have been on the forlorn side and I hate to keep raining on everybody's parade, so I have sustai... Read more

Monday, September 13, 2010      10 comments

My last few blogs have been more of doom and gloom than about motivation and aspiration. I really hate when I fall prey to such attitude. But I guess we can't be on the top of the mountain at every minute of every day, so I really have to lear... Read more
