Video of the year (must watch)!


I want to thank my client Mary, for sending me this video you are about to watch.  I think it is the most inspirational video I have seen this year. Maybe it is because of her age, or her struggles with depression, acid reflux, panic attacks, and anxiety, or maybe it is because of how she is making a difference in her community. Carve 8 minutes out of your busy life to watch this. At the … [Read more...]

This made me really sad…


I had an exciting and sad experience.   Let me explain…   I love playing frisbee golf.  It is like golf but you use special discs and throw into chain baskets.  I have been playing for about 5 years and have my entire family hooked on this sport. I try to play 3-5 times each week. A few years ago, I got my first “ACE”, a hole in one. Last week,  I made #2. I couldn’t find anyone to go with so I … [Read more...]
