Just Saying – Waging Peace

I think we should focus on waging peace not war. Too many people are looking for a fight when one doesn’t have to happen. Perhaps our world would be a cooler place if we loved more and fought less. Frankly I am tired of the wild west mentality we see today. No need for weapons of mass destruction if we have weapons of mass affection.

Happy Birthday Dad, 70 Years Awesome!

Today is my dad’s 70th birthday. He is a wonderful man who influenced me to be the geek I am. My dad served in the United States Air Force out of high school. He then married my mom and they have been together for 50 years. During that time he raised a couple of kids who have gone on to do good things too. I love my dad for being a guy who loves and cares about family, friends and community. It’s strange to say you are blessed with your parents because they came before you but in this case I will say I am grateful for this man for being a provider and a friend as we both have gotten older.

Dad, I love you. Happy Birthday!
