I promised an explanation for my disappearance: Lara and the kids and I took a VACATION! I know, this comes as a complete and total shock to all of you…and to me. It only happens once every five years or so, but it was incredible. We came home looking rested and tanned and happy.
Now, we are back to our normal schedules. The children are back to school. Life is back to reality. Mentally, I still have a huge part of my brain that is sitting on Waikiki Beach, sipping a Strawberry Colada. 🙂 And thank God for that!

“Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.” ~ Malcolm X
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” ~ Ayn Rand
“Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated.” ~ Lou Holtz

Blessings to you all, and NEVER GIVE UP!!!
