When You Add People

August 31, 2008

I found this to be very interesting on a blog I keep up with. Now he talks about it in relation to the church and its often tricky organizational turns, but this stuff could be true of any organization. So perhaps it will sound familiar no matter your current people place. http://stufffchristianslike.blogspot.com/2008/08/389-church-mafia-4-ruling-families.html

Just Listen

July 4, 2008

Sometimes its hard to know when to respond or just listen. I think this is even harder to control for guys who will start thinking of how to fix it. This is even harder for guys with wives who just want you to listen instead of fixing it. Advice at times is often very hard […]

10K Worth of Something

June 11, 2008

Well not only have I neglected my blog but a long awaited moment of achievement came and past during my neglect. For shame. Despite my neglect there have been 10,000 viewings or visits to my blog. Not too bad for a year. I think the sign above says it all. Thanks Warning Sign Generator. And […]

If My Blog could Speak…

June 11, 2008

Ok I feel bad about breaking one of the cardinal rules of blogging. Neglecting your blog. I never meant for this to become so behind. I have done nothing but work for the last few months. All my time is consumed in other activities. B/c of this my blog feels abandon and forgotten. I even […]

Lessons from a Dwarf Hotot

February 13, 2008

   Recently a friend of mine offered us a Dwarf Hotot. At first we were reluctant but as time went on we finally gave in and let him give us one for our daughter. He promised that it would build character in her with the responsibility. I was doubtful as to how much character it […]

Everybody’s Somebody’s EGP

February 11, 2008

We have all probably heard the expression. “Oh, that person is a EGP…” Now some call them EGP or others EGR. It either means Extra Grace Person or Extra Grace Required. And you know that there are those who for whatever reason get to us. They are overbearing, snippy, clumsy, anal, disorganized, rude, too happy, […]

A Most Evil Smell

February 2, 2008

As I have mentioned many times before I work at a local coffee shop. It is a blast and I love being around coffee since its a drink I enjoy very much.  But something fooled me about being in the thick of the coffee shop life. Sometimes some of the sweetest things turn out to […]

Falwell Dies

May 15, 2007

Well, whether you hated his political views, thought he was a Christian Quake or loved him this is big. Me personally I think he said some weird stuff and at times he said some stuff that made Christians look like weirdos b/c we all get lumped into the same category. But it is sad when […]

Reverand Barista

May 4, 2007

Well today begins my second job. Not unfamiliar territory for me. I have had several second jobs before. I worked at Pizza Hut a few years ago. I also have had odd jobs along the way. I was able to relax some over the last couple years, but with a new house payment b/c we […]
