Fear is the New Normal – The Compassion of Compromise

Anxiety About Reopening

It’s amazing how things work out sometimes. Was just going through my Twitter timeline and ran across this tweet: How’s everyone’s optimism level today vs a month ago? It does feel like we’re going to get through this, but I know there’s been a lot of damage done. Talk of sports coming back helps to give us something else to look at. — Rod Bluhm (@CLERodB) May 15, 2020 I thought about it for a … Continue reading

Coronavirus Fan Fiction

Coronovirus Fan Fiction

I’m going to start out this post by saying what I think what we all thing – THIS SHIT IS TERRIFYING. I’ve been holed up in my home for nearly a week already just watching how bad the news outside is. Nearly everyone I know is working from home, bars and restaurants are closed across the state (I’m in Ohio), schools are closed for at least three weeks, etc. etc. etc. If you’re like me … Continue reading

Influencer Marketing – Is It Really a Thing?

Online Marketing

I’ve got most pop ups blocked, I ignore spam emails with the best of them and my unsubscribe game is strong. So… if there’s a bunch of people … Continue reading

13 Years and Counting – Long and Winding Road

13 Years - Pool Billiards Ball

July 24th. Other than family birthdays and my anniversary (OK, and maybe Thanksgiving 😉 ) July 24th is probably the day of the year that I look forward to the most. It is the anniversary of the day that I took back my life. 13 years ago today, I quit chewing tobacco. For nearly 18 years I chewed Kodiak, Skoal and Copenhagen on a daily basis… sometimes more than a can per day. I can … Continue reading

Next Level Trolling From POTUS

Trump 404

I’m not going to get political here… I try to keep national politics out of my general day to day living cause I tend to believe that you’re entitled to your opinion and I’m entitled to mine and nothing we say is going to change the others’ mind. That said, I ran across this the other day and I have to share it, not because I necessarily like President Trump but I appreciate it on … Continue reading

12 Years Ago Today… I Took Control

July 24th is a day that I’ve always got circled on my calendar. It’s the anniversary of the day that I took my life back. 12 years ago today, I quit chewing tobacco. For nearly 18 years I chewed Kodiak, Skoal and Copenhagen on a daily basis… sometimes more than a can per day. Quitting was at the same time one of the most rewarding and most difficult things that I’ve ever done. My wonderful … Continue reading
