Motocross and A Whole Lot More

Ahhhh

We spent the afternoon at Tanglewood seeing Steve Martin and Martin Short. Plenty of laughs. After, we drove over to Camp Becket to relax by the lake. Summer is over and the sounds of youthful exuberance is gone with it. Calm, quite, and relaxing.

Responsibility in Business

A tip of the hat to the owner and staff at The Gardner Ale House in Gardner, MA.  It helps the environment and it helps the farmer.

2018 Family Reunion

We have been discussing doing this for years. After every funeral for a family member we would gather and say “You know, we need to get everyone together for something other than a funeral“. The family has expanded and many of the younger generation don’t even know who their cousins are. Hey, life goes on, people move; it just happens. Well this spring four of the cousins got together at a local watering hole and we finally set a date.

Mother nature didn’t look to be very helpful as we watched the forecasts all week, but once the party started the rain stopped and the sun peaked out from behind the clouds. Thanks to everyone who attended and thanks to cousin Bob Bassett for kicking us in the butt to finally do this. Hopefully we can carry it on at different locations.

Happy Birthday America

What a beautiful, quiet start to the day, coffee in hand, sitting on the porch swing. The birds are chirping and singing; the chickens are cackling, and Daisy is calmly taking it all in.

Happy Birthday America

I have often been asked why we don’t move closer to my place of work, why drive the 500+ miles a week? It’s because I really like where we live. It’s mornings like this that make me smile and thank God that Linda and I were given the opportunity  to purchase this land in 1987. The opportunity to change this plot of Earth from an empty field, to a home that we could raise our two children on.

That was the same hope men and women had when they started sailing to this continent many years ago. It was the same hope men and women had when they started west in covered wagons. They just wanted their own little spot on Earth to call home.

Life isn’t fair

Saw this a while back and I feel it is worth a share. Refuse to be absorbed by the negativity that is pervasive in society.

“No matter what life throws your way, no matter how unfair it may seem, refuse to play the victim. Refuse to be ruled by fear, pessimism and negativity. Refuse to quit.

Be  a warrior and work through whatever life throws your way with courage, love, and positivity. And continually push forward.

Because you are a survivor of the unfairness of life. You are stronger than you think. And you are capable of achieving far more than you believe.”

Common Courtesy

I’ve had this discussion several times with friends. It’s extremely frustrating to get caught behind these drivers who are oblivious to the fact that there is anyone but themselves on the highway.

I drive I-91 from Greenfield, MA to Springfield, MA daily to get to work, and along with the reminder to “Use ya blinkah!” the electronic signs along the highway will occasionally flash a message about the left lane being used for passing only. Until drivers start being cited for it though, this will continue to be an issue.

The left lane is for passing, not for cruising

You slow-driving, left-lane hoggers know who you are.

Lovin’ Summer Time

A Time To Remember

Thank you to all who have made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting the freedoms we have here in the United States of America.  Freedoms that many on this planet do not enjoy. Freedoms that many take for granted. Memorial Day is not a day of celebration, it is a day of remembrance.  A day that so many will never again have with their families and friends. So while you gather, while you mow your lawn, while you kick off summer with a trip to the beach; just take a moment to say thanks to those who are no longer with us and think of the lives, no linger with us, this day is for.

Rest in Peace Sailor, Soldier, Airman and Marine.
