Weather or not

WOW, talk about weird weather. Record highs in some places, heavy rains in other places, along with snow, sleet and freezing rain. It must be winter! 

How do you deal with it? Many of us just take it as it comes. Here in Nebraska I've learned to keep a snow shovel and some ice melt nearby. Some of use cover the windshield with a tarp to keep the ice off. Gotta make sure that tarp is secure, or you'll be looking for it down the street! 

Have you noticed the gas station seems to be busier when the temperature if 30 degrees, rather than say minus 10 degrees? Who wants to pump gas and freeze!?! 

When the weather service puts out a winter storm warning the check out at the grocery store seems to get longer. Besides picking up the essentials, people grab their comfort food.
What's yours? Slim Jims, popcorn, maybe doughnuts. Whatever, I bet you catch yourself next time grabbing something that is non-essential.

Got school children? They keep checking our website ( for school closings and late starts. 

Pets have a heck of time sticking around, too. An open garage door, or fence gate and they are off exploring. Keep an eye on your pooch when you let them out. 

There are lots of safety tips. Start with common sense.

Me? I've got a Snuggie, and will wait it out.

Spring can't be too far off. Baseball players are at spring training in Florida and Arizona.

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.
