Board Games

When is the last time you sat down as a family for a meal?  As one of our former Presidents stated:  "All great change in America begins at the dinner table".  If we are not even sitting down for a meal anymore how can we make any great change or even incremental progress?

I am guilty of this as well...too many quick meals before running the kids off to soccer, dance, baseball, a birthday party etc etc etc.  Too much time checking LinkedIn, playing Angry Birds or reading a blog instead of taking time to sit down for dinner or spend time with family.

A THANK-YOU CARD TO SCOTT WALKER

 

The public employees, liberal activists, and union lackeys who gathered signatures for the recall of Governor Scott Walker should instead have been gathering signatures for the world's largest thank-you card. Given the fact that public employees are perhaps the biggest benefactors of Walker's Budget Repair Bill, their time and money would have been better spent trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for such a world record effort. I'm fairly certain they won't see things in this light, but they really have a lot to thank our new governor for.

Spring Fever!

Looking outside at the blowing snow it looks like Old Man Winter is making sure we don't get too cocky about an easy Winter.  However, last night I got a huge taste of Spring Fever when I attended a manager's meeting for the Glendale Little League.  I could almost smell springtime as we discussed upcoming tryouts, practice schedules and various groundrules.

Last year I helped coach my son's Little League team for the first time and what a wonderful experience.  The most fulfulling part was watching the new players grow and develop throughout the year.  Seeing kid's faces beam with pride when they caught a ball or connected at the plate was worth all of the time and effort spent on the practice field.  Of course there were also disappointments but our players learned to handle them with class and good sportsmanship.

A THANK-YOU CARD FOR SCOTT WALKER

The public employees, liberal activists, and union bosses who gathered signatures for the recall of Governor Scott Walker should instead have been gathering signatures for the world's largest thank-you card. Given the fact that public employees are perhaps the biggest benefactors of Walker's Budget Repair Bill, their time and money would have been better spent trying to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for such a world record effort. I'm fairly certain they won't see things in this light, but they really have a lot to thank our new governor for.
 

Wisconsin's public employees should be able to clearly see now how they have been spared the fate of their counterparts in surrounding states, thanks to Governor Walker's courage and foresight. For example, in Detroit, where public employees unions have ruled the roost for decades, nearly 2,300 layoffs – including 400 firefighters - tops the list of actions that will keep America's poorest big city from running out of money by next April. Even socialist websites are becoming upset with the inevitable results of failing to face economic realities as Governor Walker has done in Wisconsin. The mayor's drastic plans include eliminating furlough days, a 10% across the board wage cut for all city employees, and a 10% hike in employee contributions to health care coverage and pension reforms. The city's financial crisis is so bad that the Michigan legislature is drafting a "Detroit-only" lottery in order to avoid what could be a catastrophic and unprecedented municipal bankruptcy.

Kudos to Fox Point Public Works Dept.

Often we have quality and kindness in our midst and we don't stop to recognize it.  We are quick to contact a company about poor service and do not in turn compliment so that good service can be acknowledged.

My kids had a late start day today and so were playing outside with the neighbor.  Tuesday is our garbage pick-up and recycling day and the little vehicles were buzzing back and forth along our street.  One of the workers paused briefly to throw a football to my son, completing a "fly" pattern for a certain touchdown.  Such a small gesture that my son told me was "really fun" when he came inside.
