The More Things Change #SOL19

First, this gem, from the music group, Cinderella, one of the top three most underrated bands of the 1980s (by my count). One of my favorite groups from this era, bluesy but metal at the same time. And, with the big... Continue Reading →

Thank you! A State Fair wrap-up #SOL19

Last Saturday, we finished what may be our last Iowa State Fair experience. There was tension between the groups we'd stalled with for the last three years. My daughter was a cranky about many things. My wife was half a... Continue Reading →

I've been a pretty good boy these last 13 days. My blogs, for the most part, have been upbeat, positive, and that's how I'm trying to keep myself. #nottoday Yesterday, my love of middle school was deep and wide like the... Continue Reading →

Where’s My Mojo? #SOL19

I'm feeling right now like the Iowa men's basketball team. They have a decent record of 21 wins and 7 losses. They have a winning record in the month of February, something not done for a number of years. They've... Continue Reading →

The Power of Thank You #SOL19ss

And They Cried….and It Was Ok #SOL18

Smack me if you've heard this story before! 🙂 It would appear that this team is growing on me because here I am, writing my Slice of Live (late, again), talking about my basketball team. But then again, it's that... Continue Reading →
