Everyone, every business, every group or organization and every great idea must be represented online. Now you can and Google will help you . . .for FREE.
Going back (and I’m fortunate to be able to have this perspective) I remember comments from Bill Gates and others including one made directly to me by the Chairman of AT&T (in 1994). They both said, that the Internet won’t last. Well, the Chairman of AT&T (at that time) was fired by his Board of Directors and of course Bill Gates had the security of owning his own company. We all know what’s happened to the Internet.
So, what’s kept you from getting online? Money, time, lack of knowledge or what? It’s time for everyone to get past their excuses and get online. I support this movement and will do everything I can (personally and professionally) to promote this idea. If you click on the image above, it will take you to the site. Look at the very short video. Notice the people promoting an online presence.
You can do it and now you can do it for FREE.
You’ve been gone for 46 years now. Frankly, it seems like yesterday. There were so many questions left un-asked. There were so many things that needed to be said and so many apologies that were never made. Life is so precious and it can be much shorter that we ever thought or imagined.
Dad died at 42 and you passed at 44.
I spent the time between 19 (when Dad passed away from a heart attack) until my 42nd year thinking that would be my last. I was so surprised when it wasn’t. My whole life changed and the questions I was asking myself coupled with the regrets were the loudest sounds in my head and echoed in my heart.
All these years later, I’ve walked more than a few miles [now] in your shoes (as they say). I know what’s it like to be a Father, Grandfather and possibly even a Great Grandfather in the not so distant future. I know what it feels like to have disappointed my children and my spouse. I know what it’s like not to have achieved your heart’s desire and to finally have it. I know what it must have felt like when your marriage broke up and when someone so close to you is critically ill.
There are so many things that I now understand that I could have only guessed at (and did) as a younger man.
I’m looking forward to our re-uniting and the joy we’ll all feel having lived and shared the opportunity that is life.
Today, I just wanted to say, “Thank you for my life and for all that you taught me in so few years.”
The circle of life, yes, but what do we do with it and what do we think about the process. Obviously, it’s different with everyone of us. The video above was emailed to me as a PowerPoint. I’ve made some changes to it and turned it into a video. I hope you enjoy it.
If you feel inclined, comments are always welcome.
Friday is, once again, the time to celebrate one of the most admired men in my life, George Washington our First President.
President Washington could have done what so many first time Presidents of other countries have done. They liked the power so much that they grabbed more and more of it and then decided they wanted it all. Result, democracy dies and another dictator is born.
Washington set the stage for every American leader since. While each of them may not have been of the highest moral character or even acted Presidential or provided the best possible leadership; they have still only served their elected term.
It’s no secret that he was also a Brother Mason. As a Mason myself I understand the principles and values he held dear.
Here’s a footnote:
At one time I was privileged to dress as George Washington. I jumped at the chance. I thought some of you might like to see the result:
