The First Days of Summer

From the journal of the S.O.B.: As we head into the last week of June, we also embrace the first day of summer. And it sure has come in with a bang. Snow in the mountains, floods in the plains, fire in the west, and heat in the South. So how are you planning on...

Happy Easter and Passover

From the Journal of the S.O.B.: Isn’t it interesting how so many religions have celebrations around the same calendar time. Which really means we are more alike than different. And there should be more peace and harmony in the world. I love people and so do most...

Building Lasting Relationships

One of the things all of you have told me is that you enjoy community. You want people around you who you enjoy doing things with, can talk to, can count on and who are there for you and vice-versa. When you wake up in the morning, do you think about who you’ll...

Be Thankful

This is the week we celebrate our independence. Many people just think of it as a time off from work, or a way to take an entire week off or picnic time. It’s so much more than that. It was and is our Declaration of Independence. Sometimes we forget what a...

Sometimes you look at someone else and are envious because you think they have more than you do. At other times, you believe something should be yours and it isn’t. However, there is usually a back story that no one knows about that isn’t very friendly or...
