Homecoming Ends Wondering Where We Left Our Values

Oct 10, 2010

  Last night was Homecoming for Franklin High School and Christ Presbyterian Academy.  Both Kailey and Julia went to the dance.  Kailey went to CPA’s and Julia to Franklin’s.  I got a phone call during the week asking if I could help out at Franklin’s, I replied of course, and was given the task of watching…

Unforgettable Birthdays

Oct 4, 2010

  The title of this blog may draw in some of my friends seeking weird pictures, a stupid story or crazy memories of birthdays past. Sorry to report this is not such a post, but rather important years we need to remember as we age (I will tell stupid stories of birthday’s past, just not…

What Do You Say When You Talk To Yourself?

Sep 30, 2010

     I woke up this morning around 4 a.m. and was working through some struggles in my life.  Thinking about work, implementing new ideas, kids and their activities and are they adjusting to high school, relationships–and why are they so hard sometimes, and then I realized, I keep having the same thoughts go through my…

What Others Think of You is None of Your Business

Sep 27, 2010

Too often we allow others opinions to alter the way we view ourselves. A friend could tell us “That look is not you!” What do we do? We never wear that outfit again. A prospect says “Ya know, I heard a lot of bad things about annuities. They aren’t such a good investment. Why are…

Big Diet Starts in October, but The Joy of A Cheeseburger Today.

Sep 23, 2010

The run gang (minus Judith this morning, some weak excuse about her half ironman she is doing on Sunday) met this morning and ran our 4 miles through the park.  The conversation is always good, light and entertaining.  The talk will usually lead us back around to our eating habits. We discussed the options for strength training…

If It Weren’t For All Those Uphills I Would Love Biking!

Sep 18, 2010

Biking this morning a thought popped into my head: “I would really love this sport if it weren’t for biking up these hills” Every time reaching the summit of some hill, can’t breath, legs sore, and wondering how slow you can go up a hill without going backwards.  Think today I was close to going…

So, What is an Annuity?

Sep 17, 2010

An insurance-based contract that provides future payments at regular intervals in exchange for current premiums. Annuity contracts are usually purchased from banks, brokerage firms, individual producers or insurance companies. Don’t run off looking for a hole to put your head in the sand. This is not that hard! What this really means is… Insurance companies take…

Want the Answer to Your Question?

Sep 16, 2010

Carve out an hour without distraction, sit and let your mind go free. Put the kids to bed, give your spouse a kiss, leave the TV and radio off and get comfortable. Just sit for an hour. After about 15 minutes your thoughts will change from “Gosh, this is stupid I have this to do…
