I double-dog dare you to disagree

I started thinking about all the ways the media is trying to make each other hate each other while losing sight of the values that bind us together. It's down right head scratching maddening. And then I realized I bet everyone - no matter what 'sides' you decided to sign up for - I think you'd agree and question how we got here. It wasn't like this and we all know it. We all just want freedom and the American dream we painted on our definition canvas of #Winning. Same Skies to thee so Shine So there's the first thing we can agree on. If we can agree with that one thing... What else can we agree on? What else…

Pitbull and me.

Thank you, Pitbull. I can't believe it took nearly five months to stumble upon this truth he spoke openly last fall. His wisdom on the double standards and how many CEO's 'buy low and sell high' validates my thought of why more influencers like Pitbull need to speak out, regardless of the short-term ramifications NOW. Perhaps he believes it's time to buy low and bet on more than 75 million of of who will support him for standing tall. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5KIAftglPM We know at least 75 million adults were counted who voted for the Americans First movement versus selling us out overseas. The 75 million of us who are hopeful that together, we can finally get all of us in the…

Here’s the download…

Have you noticed the commercials on your streaming channels say Ad on them with a box to point that out? That’s new for a TV ad. Because it’s streaming. The cables and antennas are gone. It’s modems and routers plugged into the internet. Faster than ever and so everyone can have a device streaming as individuals, not families and gather that data. So is it now internet and therefore I assume no longer regulated by FCC? or are they? In my analytics conversations with media sales, we were very locked down even though we technically were collecting the data, the FCC prohibited sharing or analyzing it.   Is that why main stream media is so blatantly obvious on its political stance…

90 Day American

You know, I'm sitting here on the eve of an awesome Mexico excursion with our best friends and should be writing other stuff than flexing the muscle to tell a story for personal, non-profitable reasons. I've got three musts and three wish I coulds but I can't even fathom how I would structure that into my disciplines long enough to accomplish them. Someday though. If I'd just write for the other two reasons other than my own. Oh well. I'm not tired. The mix of emotions of leaving right now distract me from the focus on the other 2/3rds. Hoping the next 5 days of UV and no plans is just what we all need about right now. So when…

Where will we go?

I had a memorable conversation with a remarkable young woman a couple of weeks ago. Her name is Anna, I'd guess her to be in her later 20's and although her appearance remained unaltered by American celebrity influences of fashion, hair and makeup - she is stunningly beautiful. I've known her for some time through work and she carries herself properly, confidently and exudes a kind, gentle aura. I picture her as a brunette Briar Rose who hasn't realized she's actually Sleeping Beauty. I wasn't sure how we were on the subject, but she mentioned she was born in Ukraine. "Oh, wow, you're Ukrainian... you must tell me more. How did you leave?" She made eye contact with me to…

Another Memory on the Story Wall

Read the headline and cue in the Dave Chappelle bit when he references the DJ guy and says, "Another one..." Then add in the sound effect of the HodgeTwins saying, Yeah.....  I shifted my story wall today and had to reconfigure to see how I squeeze something else in or phase out store-bought items with real-life experience material - souvenirs, milestone pictures, cool vacation memorabilia err yeah.. souvenirs. Story wall.  We went home to Iowa for Thanksgiving and collected new pictures as a gift from my brother and sister-in-law for an awesome vacation we had together this year in Gatlinburg and prints of pictures we took together when we met in Chicago for a weekend last summer to watch the…

4 Ways to Get Through This

This is the most intense period of time I’ve had to live in. In the depths of my heart, breadth of lessons lived and wisdom of eras survived I know one thing to be true. If you believe in what you believe from what you believe to be fueled by a strong, passionate desire to improve the world you are currently viewing on your screen, then we have a common thread. A common bond. An Eva in a Wall-E reality When you can connect on similar goals – meaning we all want our children and grandchildren to grow up in a free, safe and close knit place within a stocked pond of opportunity for finding dreams, personal growth, resiliency, healthy…

Milestones During the Millennial Era

Here's a story to ponder before anyone pillages another American neighbor or town. Civil wars are genocide when innocent children, women and men are killed in cold blood. We know the famous one - the Nazis vs. the Jews. Let's talk our lifetime. Let's just focus on the 90's and through today. The past 30 years as we've been asleep at the wheel but our troops have been there, on the ground as our leaders order them to be. Yugoslavia: 1991 - 2001 and still dealing with the aftermath. The entire region is now all new territory lines and broke out in civil war. Keep in mind, April 26th 1992 were the LA riots of looting, murder and destruction over…

Dems Da Rules.

In an effort to help others in public spaces of town avoid any embarrassing confrontations or misunderstandings, you gotta know the rules of your environment. Many places have different rules, which could become confusing. Here they are,  simplified, by where you may be and during what time.   Worker Rules Your boss is not required to disclose a possible exposure unless there’s a positive test to confirm the ill person has Corona. You won’t be considered at risk for exposure to the infected individual unless you were within their 6-foot social distance bubble for more than 15 minutes and did not wear a mask. This also would have had to occur during the 48 hours prior to the individual showing…
