Silky's Sports Bar was one of my favorite places to hang out. They had great cheese-steaks, 1 lb burgers, and they served green eggs and ham on March 17th. It was a two-story building and a with a balcony. If I got a seat at the railing, I could see every television in the place. … Continue reading Take THAT!
20 years ago, the most beautiful set of blue eyes I have ever seen said to me, "I do". Since then, wherever we have been, as long as I've been able to look into those eyes, I have been home. We have added three more sets of those eyes over the years, and anywhere I've … Continue reading Home
Last week I wrote about Roger Staubach and visiting the NFL Hall of Fame. The event was amazing, and I felt like a kid again walking through the museum. As I mentioned I grew up a Steelers fan and was eight years old again when I saw the bust of Mean Joe Greene. How I … Continue reading Hall of Fame and Heroes
I have been a Pittsburgh Steelers fan all my life. (I thank God, Dave, and Peggy for that.) Growing up a Steelers fan in the 1970's meant we basically had a singular enemy, the Dallas Cowboys. America's team, my a%%! Now, my parents were two of the kindest people I ever knew, but they had nothing, … Continue reading Steelers and Staubach

I haven't posted here since January, and I know my reader has missed me. I love writing, but will readily admit that posts will come sporadically over the next couple months. With three teenagers, one of whom is headed to college, I don't know that there will be a "regular" week in the near future. … Continue reading I’m Back, Embarrassed, and Angry
As I mentioned last week, I joined an on-line exercise group for the first 90 days of 2018. The posts in the group are interesting. Some of them are very specific: I missed my workout yesterday. Should I double up today, or just do today's workout? I think my nutrition has been off a little, and … Continue reading Goals, Part 2
I joined an on-line fitness group for a 90-day challenge to begin 2018. There are about 9,000 people in the group. In that group, I have seen numerous posts about nutrition, diets, supplements, etc. I shared the following suggestions there. A number of people found it helpful, so I thought I would post it here, … Continue reading Goals, Part 1
On September 1, 2017, I started a three-month sabbatical from the church I serve. It was a pretty amazing time. I got to spend time with my kids, traveling with my oldest to visit colleges, with my younger son to play some hockey, and long peaceful days at the barn with my daughter. I started … Continue reading 2018
When I was in seminary, I sat in a theology class with six other students around a table. One day, the discussion was about oppression and prejudice. People shared some very personal painful stories about how they had been mistreated at best, abused at worst. I sat quietly. Finally, one student noticed I wasn't saying … Continue reading Not Me
