Caught up in the winter blahs? Yeah, it's cold and windy, a little icy, and you have to bundle up to get from your house to your car, from your car to work, from work to your car (do you see a pattern here?) and you'd give anything for day where's sunny and 55 degrees.

Fret not there's things to do to pass the time. My wife like jigsaw puzzles. She sets up a table and away she goes. Me? I keep tabs on some baseball teams. You see in about a month pitchers and catchers report to spring training. I know that means we're on the backside of winter.

Still, waiting for that BIG snowstorm. I'm sure it'll catch us when we least expect it.

Nice, that's what you'll wish for the next time you watch a  weather forecast. When's is it going to be nice again. Well, it's pretty nice right now, if you're into ice fishing.

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.
