Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.

Important stuff

Some things are important, some things not so. Let's review.

Not important:
1) How the NCAA regional in Omaha turns out this weekend. If you are going to be anywhere near the Century Link Center, good luck. About 18,000 basketball crazies will be there. Tickets are about four times the face value. That's why I call them crazies.

2) The whole political turmoil. It doesn't matter what your views are to many, they have their own and are probably willing to share their views with you. It seems people who are really concerned, aren't that interested in hearing someone spew and opposing viewpoint. Said, but true.

3) Wanting warmer weather NOW.. It'll be here before we know it, and some will relish sitting inside their air-conditioned cubicle. Just give nature time to figure it out.


1) Knowing your expectations and limitations. Don't sit back and be lazy, don't set yourself up for failure. Find a groove you can be pleased with you accomlishments.

2) Love your …

What's the news that gets to you.

All kinds of different stories making the news these days. Away from the political noise of "he said, she said" stuff, which is good theatrics, but I wish they would get something done about coming to a common goal of making this world a better place to live. Anyway..
I see, Toys For Us is shutting down. The blame is being put on Wal-Mart and Amazon. I didn't realize Toys For Us had been around 70 years. I wonder where the idea for Toys For Us came from. there were a lot of new ideas put into action after World War II. Maybe, Toys For Us was one of them. As a parent you, like your children grow out of the store. Seems like they couldn't get the last couple of generations to take their children there and make purchases.
Did you hear about the dog that wound up in Japan, instead of Kansas City? Seems an airline passenger was traveling. She got to K.C., but her dog wound up in Japan, while another dog...yup you guessed it, was supposed to go to Japan and wound up in Kansa…

Finally Friday

Some random thought about spring time to share today. Saw on Facebook a satellite photo of the thousands of bird migrating to Nebraska. Pretty impressive, many in south central Nebraska at Harlan, also along the Platte River, spring must be coming soon.
The calendar flipped from February to March, another sign of spring is on its way. However, don't discount the late winter snow storm that is able to bring activities to a grinding halt. We may see one yet! I could do without it.
It's the Lenten season, seems every town has at least one organization with a weekly fish fry. I won't mention any particular one, just pick one out,  you'll probably bump into friends, neighbors, or relatives. Bon appetite'.
Baseball is underway on all levels. The majors, college, high schools, and even the little leagues are getting the gear out for another season. 
Don't let Easter sneak up on you, it's on April Fools Day. You can tell Easter isn't far off. It reminds me to make …

Okay, okay, okay...I'm not crazy about the pending snow this weekend, either. Just head to your favorite grocery store and stock up.

Keep you boots, shovel and gloves hand.

Most importantly keep a good attitude, this shall pass,too.
