Its kind of a miniature parable wrapped into a joke, about the man who jumped on his horse and ha guidato [...]

Sure Cure for Procrastination

Have you ever noticed that the longer you dwell on something you should be doing, the more difficult it seems to get? And the longer you put something off, the harder it is to get started?

The mid-September sun began its ascent over the autumn colored southeastern hills of Cavendish, Vermont on a brisk, dewy morning in 1848. A solitary ray of golden sunlight made its way through the gritty kitchen window of a modest, one story, whitewashed, wooden framed, house and landed on the cheek of a dark haired, bearded [...]

Sharp, Shiny Objects And The People Who Love Them…Part 1

I just got back from the Blade Show in Atlanta. Which begs the question, “Why would a guy on blood thinners go to “The World’s Largest Knife Show?” Three reasons really: Food, Friends and Field Research.

Most especially, Baseball.   But I do have an eye for the counterintuitive, which is why a recent article by sports writer, Bruce Mills, about Chicago Cubs Manager, Joe Maddon, caught my attention. In the article, the writer talks about Maddon’s propensity toward [...]
