This is a blog for "people". You're not defined by your latest & greatest. You are you and that's great enough.

OK, we can put the soapbox away for awhile, I don't know about you but I feel much better. We even had new posters in the blog, we won't go into their posting subject matter, but hey, they came, they saw, they responded and we learned a little bit more about them. Yes, today, we're looking at the silver lining that is in every cloud. Clouds? Did I mention clouds? Could this be a weather related topic today? It is raining here and rain here in South Florida without being accompanied with wind which although not out of the realm of possibilities it's not the norm for these parts, but no, this isn't a weather related topic today.
No, not at all, it's kid bragging time. Tim, our oldest brought home an entry form yesterday, it seems his teacher entered, to a national publishing company, a few of what she felt were the students best poems and Tim's and a few others from the English department will be published in this annual publication and the entrants are eligible for one of their ten $3,000.00 scholarships. Of course, Becky and I are skeptical it could be one of these poetry semi scams where their main goal is to get your money from book purchases regardless of the quality of the poems. I've got to check it out, but regardless, I'm proud of him all the same because his poem is good. There are days the boy worries me as I think he just may be the smartest person making a career of running the fry machine at McDonald's, but he's got potential. His engineering class is studying civil engineering the semester and Tim and I had quite the conversation about pilings and substrate structure make up yesterday.
Now, you might be kidless, but don't think you're left out. It doesn't have to be your kid you're bragging about. It can be your neighbor, niece or nephew, a friend, the kid you saw riding his bike down the street or just kids in general, but it's time to shift the focus onto thIS younger generation.
