    So about a month ago I started a site for my kiddo to sell her t-shirt designs on.  So far so good.  Running a couple ads to see if we can get some more traffic going.  There are only a couple designs up right now and I had her draw some more…time for my part …

  • To Effect Change

    July 5, 2018 Comments Off on To Effect Change personal

    Seems like there is always so much to do and so little time.  Distractions everywhere.  To effect change on a higher level.  Something people are drawn to, something to leave the world a better place than how I found it.  Working on putting the pieces together to make it happen.

    Over the 2016 Christmas and New Year week, Bella and I took off and headed up north to visit the grandparents.  We have done this drive dozens of times over the last 6 years since they moved up there.  This time was particularly brutal.  We started the trip with a flat tire about 15 minutes …

    My Dad gave me this fly box.  He found it while we were out fishing (I’m sure I was trailing along behind him somewhere) and I remember seeing it for the first time.  It was covered in gunk that things get covered in when they have been dropped and forgotten in the Kern River somewhere …

    So a couple of weeks ago I was having an early morning FaceTime meeting with a friend and I warned her about my hair since it had decided to grow a mind of its own overnight.  She explained to me that she has experienced this phenomenon as well and sometimes took pictures of the craziness …

    Those of you that know me know that I have not always been a football fan, nor really a fan of organized sports in general.  Within the last few years I have gotten into playing fantasy football with some friends.  This has prompted me into a full on obsession.  I bought a new TV, got …

    I know that for the majority of parents they do not have kids thinking that they will end up being single parents(with the exception of those brave souls that go different routes such as adoption or what not).  At least I didn’t plan on it.  It happens though, unfortunately (or fortunately) more in modern

    Change.  Everyone does it.  It could be minor changes in the way that we get ready for the day, or it could be major changes in the way we view life or the things around us.  I think change is good for the most part.  Even if in the beginning it doesn’t seem that way.  …
