Weekend Wisdom To Live By For Summer 2020


Here is a wonderful quote by one of my favorite men – Ralph Waldo Emerson. To all you father’s out there, BE the example of this quote for your kids.

Rommie did not like “wild air” as that meant thunder boomers. She was not very scared of them, but she was not comfortable either.

Now go LIVE this quote! If ever there was a summer where we need to be bravely and fully living Ralph’s words, it is this summer.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!!!

Well, this post was going to be titled “Me or Chris Brogan.”  I was going to suggest if you were serious and eager to get a jump on the business world while they recuperate from partying, then check out ChrisBrogan.com for his annual 3 Words for 2012 reveal.

If you were not in the mood for something serious, then I was going to tell you to scroll down for a New Years greeting from Rommie and I.  Well SOMEONE who shall remain nameless, (Rommie), decided to play diva and not cooperate when I tried to take our picture. 

She did so well with our self-portrait last year, that I thought we were on to a new tradition.  Yes, I have to contort my body into strange positions to get a picture but everyone needs a little adventure now and then  😉

New Year's Self Portrait

Still Life

So instead of an adorable picture of the two of us – you get still life. 

Oh well, that’s life.  Have a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year  😀
