2018 Goals

Time to kick off the new year with a new set of goals. Let’s kick the tires and light the fires! Bot Up! - I have an idea for a messenger bot that I’ve been meaning to get out the door. Just need to find the time to code it up and ship it. It solves a need for me that I’m trying accomplish. And its something new and interesting that I’d like to learn more about.

2017 Goals Review

Another year down, another chance to review what I’ve accomplished for the year. Solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 3 minutes – FAIL - I was pretty active in trying to get this one accomplished at the beginning of the year. Even got down to a pretty consistent resolution on the cube itself, just didn’t have the time to get fast at it. Unfortunately, my schedule and work load pushed this one to the back burner and really haven’t touched it in close to 6 months.

Boy Scouts

I’ve been trying to process the recent change of the Boy Scouts of America allowing girls into the organization. If you haven’t read about it, you can find more information here I grew up in scouting so I can understand the appeal. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout along with many of my friends. We had a heck of a troop and I wouldn’t trade those memories for the world.

With A Blink Of An Eye

With a blink of an eye, they’re one. What a year its been. Happy Birthday Boys!

Les Hale

Its a sad day to day. Today we learned of the passing of Les Hale I got to meet Les on several occasions throughout my years in the UNI Varsity Men’s Glee Club and then later while serving on the board of directors for an endowment fund in his name. He always had a story to tell about the group, his students and gettings started so many decades ago. Les talked about the Glee Club and not only its impact on the guys in the group and the men that they became.
