What I would tell Sam Bradford

One of the big sports stories yesterday involved my favorite team.  Quarterback Sam Bradford informed the Philadelphia Eagles that he wanted to be traded.  Drama in the NFL! The word is that since the team made moves to, supposedly, draft a new quarterback, Sam isn’t willing to play.  Now, I’m not going to pretend to know what he is thinking or why.  There are plenty of people on TV and radio for that.  I’ve heard he’s a great…..

To the Coast!

It’s that time again! I received the news last week of my new appointment.

Last night, for dinner, the love of my life made look like a renowned chef. Everyone loved the chicken soup I made that…..

Who is useless?

I feel as if God is trying to get my attention. For whatever reason(s), it took me forever to read Leanord Sweet’s book, Viral: How Social Networking Is Poised to Ignite Revival.  No, it wasn’t a difficult read at all.
