No Shave November 2013

No Shave November 2013

Nov 15, 2013

It’s November.  For most it means Thanksgiving, Christmas shopping, etc.  But for many it means ditching the razor. For many years, I’ve wanted to participate in “No-shave November” but simply couldn’t because of Fire Department regulations.  Even in 2011 when I took almost a month off in vacation and went to Los Angeles I was told to either shave or be reprimanded, good cause or not. So, this year, I’m excited to participate.  No-Shave November is a simple concept that is becoming more and more popular each year.  Coming on the heels of October and Breast Cancer awareness, No-Shave November simply encourages men to grow some type of facial hair to raise awareness for prostate cancer.  I’m at day 14 which I don’t mind telling you is the “itchy” stage!  I must say however, it is working.  People I know ask me why I’m suddenly growing a beard.  I get the chance to explain.  Yesterday even I had a local high school student stop and ask to take pictures of my facial hair for their school news program segment on prostate cancer. I’m enjoying the process, despite constant pressure from Michele and my daughter to shave it.  I’ve been tempted, but I think I’m going to make it to November 30th.  After all, it is the least I could do for a good cause.

Happy Veterans Day!

Happy Veterans Day!

Nov 12, 2013

HAPPY VETERANS DAY To many Veterans Day is just another day on the calendar.  So much so that many may go through the entire day before they even realize it is Veterans Day.  To be honest, that was me, many years ago.  Even after I served in the US Navy, I still never really thought about it to be honest. Then about 10 years ago I was fortunate enough to be hired as a paid firefighter by a local professional firefighter.  One of my firefighter brothers served in the US Army and is an Army Ranger.  He takes his former service and that of anyone else who has served very seriously.  Watching this man thank everyone he knew inspired me to think.  It changed my views completely, especially the ones I didn’t think I had. . I come from a military family.  My paternal great grandfather served  during WW 1.  His son, my grandfather was a SeaBee in the Pacific in WW 2.  His brother, Bob, was a Marine who saw action in Iwo Jima.  Bob lost his legs to a land mine during the War.  My dad served during Vietnam and then served another 30 years with the Indiana Army National Guard.  His wife, my stepmother also served 30 years with the Indiana National Guard.  My first cousin, served in the US Army and saw action in the Middle East during Operation Desert Shield. My maternal grandfather served in the infantry in Europe in WW 2.  It’s my understanding that he actually lied about his age to enlist.  He met his future wife, my maternal grandmother, in an Army Hospital in Fort Meade Maryland where she worked as an Army nurse. So I wasn’t ungrateful for others service, I was oblivious.  It was something that was just a part of my upbringing.  It wasn’t special it was normal.  I never thought beyond that.  But my time with Mike, the Ranger, made me think.  What some may have seen as over the top or excessive, I saw as passionate compassion.  He was not only proud of his own service but he made sure that everyone else that served understood that he was also proud...

Why We Choose Beachbody & Shakeology

Today I want to brooch a subject that I’ve long steered clear of.  I don’t believe in criticizing another product to make another look good.  I believe in highlighting the benefits of whatever it is I’m recommending.  I think there is enough negativity in this world that I don’t need to add to it.  I also believe that many companies marketing campaigns thrive and depend on creating fierce loyalty about their products.  I’ve seen it in this business.  One time friends no longer speak because of their product beliefs. However, I knew in the back of my mind that this article was inevitable, it was just a matter of time.  As I’ve milled it over repeatedly in my head and discussed it with Michele numerous times I began to realize that I can say what I need to say by simply explaining why we have made the decision we’ve made by highlighting the positives and IF any comparisons came up, I would simply avoid using another companies brand name.  Fair enough. With that said, I want to explain why we choose to be a part of Beachbody.  Basically, it boils down to our belief in Shakeology.  That’s it. In January 2009 I underwent brain surgery to help relieve symptoms from a neurological condition known as “Chiari Malformation”.  In a search for a perfect workout to rehab quickly and return to work as a firefighter, I found P90X.  Guys at work asked about it.  I found out I could sign as a coach and make some money selling P90X’s.  So I signed up as a Beachbody Coach. A few months later Shakeology was introduced.  We are not neccesarily skeptical people but we don’t just buy into hype.  We took a step back and let the dust settle first.  After it got rave reviews we decided to try it.  That’s been four years.  I have basically had one every day since.  Everyone in my house has one everyday.  My mother, sisters, step-mother and friends all have one everyday.  Even my neuro-surgeon has one daily.  He says he believes its one of the best nutritional supplements on the market. I can tell you that with my condition,...

Sunflowers

Sunflowers

Jul 29, 2013

When the boys were younger we bought our first house.  In the back yard the previous owners had planted sunflowers along the back privacy fence.  We loved having them.  That was 15 years ago.  So this year, we decided to plant a row of them along the outside of our privacy fence in our new home.  Maleah was excited.  Her, her neighborhood friend and I planted them 6 weeks ago.  We planted Giant sunflowers this year.  Obviously they weren’t kidding!  I am 6’5 and you can see this one towers over me.         When growing sunflowers make sure they will receive full sun.  They grow best in fertile, moist, well drained soil.  It’s best to mulch around the stalks. They have large stick stalks with heart shaped leaves.  Sunflowers are planted for both for asthetic and practical purposes.  The seeds are harvested and may be used to make sunflower oil, scattered for bird seed, and of course many enjoy eating the seeds themselves.           Sunflowers will typically face the east.  Many believe they will follow the sun throughout the day.  This is a myth.  They typically take 6 weeks to mature.  As the Sunflower approaches maturity it will begin to face downward.  The flower head will curl backward, the petals will brown and the face will produce seeds.  To harvest the seeds you may scrape the seeds loose, or simply place the flower in a paper bag and let it dry.  They seeds should just fall off.  Then, simply peel and enjoy!              ...
