Wow, I Didn’t Know You Sang!

I’m a pretty private person. People who know me might be aware of this, but I don’t think they have a clue just how private I am. You could say I’m “guarded,” and you could even mistake me for being “anti-social” at times. But...

My Policy On Blog Comments

One of the most interesting aspects I’ve found about blogging (and the Internet in general) is the fact that people will comment on a particular blog post or article they read. I find it interesting because it’s only with the power of the Internet that you...
When I Met Astronaut Charlie Duke

When I Met Astronaut Charlie Duke

Today, I went to a luncheon and got to hear from General Charlie Duke, a former NASA Astronaut. He spent 71 hours on the surface of the moon with Apollo 16, and was the backup lunar pilot for Apollo 13. Funny enough, he’s also the one who infamously caught the...

Of all the financial advice I’ve ever gotten in my life, one particular quote about money stands out more than any other. It wasn’t advice from a financial planner, or banker, or stock broker, either. It came from a plumber I know. The roughest,...

Surfing at Ocean Beach in San Diego

I got to check off one of the things on my bucket list this week: trying surfing. I’ve gotta admit, I grew up relatively close to the ocean and we went to the beach all the time but I never tried surfing before. It’s much, much harder than I ever expected....

Should I Join a Toastmasters Club?

Should I Join a Toastmasters Club?

I’m a big fan of conquering my weaknesses and fears. I like to identify what they are, finding out why I’m afraid of them, and then do whatever it takes to overcome them. There’s one fear I’m working on these days is the fear that’s often...
