My Dad was an avid golfer. He was also a great man who I vividly remember mellowing with age. He was a service manager for a large farm implement and industrial truck dealership under the International Harvester brand. My Mom told me how much my coming into their home changed him from a gruff, sometimes..
You either grasp this title or you don’t! I was so inspired by a very special weekend that I had to write a very self-indulgent blog and without attempting some cryptic messaging, the “YRHS” is the Yorkton Regional High School in Yorkton, Saskatchewan Canada. The school opened in 1966 but as the first graduation..
I made a promise to myself in the past year to try not to sound so “negative” in my blogs. I have struggled a bit. Understand, I am not a cynic by nature. Do I have bad days? Of course. But I truly believe in the power of positivity because that power transformed the life..

In the span of 24 hours, my wife, Darlene, and I, experienced an almost 50 degree shift in temperature…from Hawaii to Canada! As I sit in my office on a chilly Monday morning, I am having a hard time getting engaged in work. Probably have a lot of nods of agreement on that one. I..
