The Taming of The Beard

For about 5 years now, I have proudly sported a beard. I am not sure why, but for most of my beard growing life, I kept myself clean shaven. It’s odd, because I grow a nice full black beard. (All black except for the new grey guys that are moving in. No biggie.) Maybe it was because I didn’t know ... Read More »

Dear President Obama…

NOTE: YOU CAN PROBABLY SKIP THE VIDEOS AND STILL GET THE POINT Every so often, I am reminded how much I love people with Down syndrome. Right after that, I am reminded that the abortion industry has a huge bullseye on these children in the womb. I spent 5 years as a special education teacher, and it was probably one ... Read More »

Here’s To One Year of Blogging

Here I am, one year later, and I am still blogging. To be completely honest, this whole experience has been crazy for me. When I started, I had no idea what to expect. I had no idea what I was doing either. I probably contemplated starting a blog for over a year before I started it. Glad I did, because ... Read More »

5 Things I Would Love To Do

8 Indie Films I Highly Recommend

Why do I love indie movies? There are so many reasons. Independent films are usually more creative and  more of the director’s voice tends to come through. (Not Hollywood’s voice) I also like the low budget look and feel that comes with independent film. The content is usually more important that how much money the movie can make.

5 Things You Should Know About Pro-choicers

(Added September 2016) I originally wrote this in July of 2015. Out of everything I have ever posted, this most definitely got the biggest response. I would say about 60-75% of the response was positive, but I also got a ton of backlash and criticism from pro-lifers. Like most people, I stupidly concentrated on the negative responses. My mistake. Even still, there has always been ... Read More »

In fact, I felt like I had an easier time pointing out the things in the pro-life movement that disappoint me rather than things I enjoy. Maybe I have a negative attitude or tend to be too critical. Who knows? I don’t regret or take anything back that I said, ... Read More »
