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.

White House Prankster

There has been some press recently about a “prankster” that duped several senior White House officials into replying to and acting on emails sent to their accounts that they believed were from son-in-law Jared Kushner. You can find more details in this CNN article. What’s the big deal LOL what’s the big deal with this. The administration is not known for thier strong use of technology or email in general.
