Iler Smiler

Now, here's that Ronnie Milsap story I teased the other day. Years ago (the late 70's) I was working for KTOM Country in Salinas, California and Ronnie Milsap was in concert at the Circle Star theater
San Carlos, California just south of San Francisco, I was representing the station because we gave a concert tickets on the air. Ronnie is on stage, which by the way is a circle stage and slowly goes around during the performance so everyone in the crowd has a great seat. Anyway, Ronnie Milsap is blind-for those who didn't know that-and he slowly starts talking to the crowd and walking toward the edge of the stage. Now I'm thinking he better stop because it's about a five foot drop. But he nudges closer and closer to the edge and stops just in time..whew! He then says I really love my band members and trust them all the time, in fact, they say I got at least another 3 feet of stage left in front of me and begins to laugh. The joke was on us and he started singing "Pure Love". Have in concert moments you want to share?

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.
