  • Grow some diversity in the new year

    I have fallen down on the job and for that I apologize. Life got a little hectic with getting my new wheels, visiting family and doing all those other holiday things packed in with regular life. As we send this year packin', we should reflect on all the lessons learned.

       I learned to be prepared for anything, from droughts and floods to floating beds and hungry critters in between. I learned that time speeds up with accumulating years and that it's the people in our lives that make it worth living.
