Fifty-four years ago on this day, a police officer, army veteran, father, husband and a man working two part jobs in addition to being a police officer, was shot and killed in the suburbs of Dallas, TX while investigating a murder. Everyone remembers the victim of that murder, lets take a moment to remember a man doing his job, supporting his family, married to his high school sweetheart... Officer J. D. Tippett. From Wikipedia: Tippit was born near the town of Annona in Red ...

Twenty-Six letters. Seven colors in a rainbow. Isn't it amazing what human beings can do with just a few musical notes, or colors or letters. Create joy, bring back forgotten memories, enlighten nations. We can do so much with so little, the human heart and brain are miraculous things.     There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle. - Einstein  ...

There is always a little more hope in the first of the month. A new beginning. A fresh start. I've started wearing a "mile 0" pin that I got in Key West (staying at the Klein Cottage!!) to remind me that all we have is this one moment in time. (cue Whitney Houston) Its nice to think that I'm always at mile zero and that mile zero is in paradise. Today is a little more unique because it is All Saints Day. A religious holiday based on the belief that there is a powerful spiritu...

File this under "Canadian Cops have too much free time." From the HuffPost: Talk about a bum note: A Montreal man says he’s facing a $117 traffic ticket just for singing in his car. In September, Taofik Moalla was driving home and singing along to “Gonna Make You Sweat,” a 1990 dance music smash by C+C Music Factory. Y’know, the one that goes, “Everybody dance now!” CLICK HERE to remember. The 38-year-old Moalla was grooving to the beat when police suddenly pulled him o...

I wish for us all to be more conscious of people in trouble, and to reach out whenever we can. Now I will leave it to those more wise than I to speak:   “There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.'No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that's our real disaster.” -Dalai Lama XIV   We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tr...

I don't where these originated, I heard them from Deepak Chopra.   We could change the world with these questions. Especially Facebook.   1. Is it true? 2. Is it kind? 3. Is it necessary?     My darling wife, Sheilagh, said: "Then there will be no cat videos for you." Oh no, I said cat videos are necessary. I find them so soothing. You may prefer dog or baby videos. Just asking myself these questions has enabled me to stop myself from making comments on things and brought...
