The bicycle with no seat…ya I did this. Part 3

So now, I am downtown Vancouver.  I am racing up West Georgia, the busiest street in downtown Vancouver.  No bike lanes in the day.  No helmut.  No seat.  12:45ish in the morning.  Case of beer in my belly, plus maybe a 25 cent package of ichiban all day.  I am in the right lane and [...]

I was 16 years old when…

I was 16 years old at a party with my friends in Rutland.  The party was at a house where the parents were out of town, like most of them were back then.  We were having our usual fun, when my "posse" and I decided to go for a walk to smoke a joint or [...]

Laura and I before…

This describes Laura and I's relationship before addiction took over.  I say this because from where we both came from and what we accomplished before we lost it all, was 1+1=3. The funny thing is we actually both started off in addiction, and found our way to the synergistic relationship because we made each other [...]

Make yourself accountable.

We all have been guilty of this crime at one time or another.  The crime is saying something to a loved one, but not following through on your words.  So how do we hold ourselves accountable to our loved ones, or even ourselves if our motives and intentions are good, but we lack the follow [...]

Most married men I know are guilty of this….

As the years progress in your marriage, I have noticed for myself, and a lot of my friends, how invested men get into their wife and children.  This is not a bad thing.  Sort of.  Its a great thing on the one hand that most men I know dedicate just about everything they do into [...]

Why I do what I do…

So my kids are off today to go visit Laura.  I am left alone, and decide to clean the house up.  Ya, I know, really exciting stuff right?  Well, I am cleaning, and I can't find the mop bucket.  I look around everywhere trying to find the mop bucket.  I end up in my room, [...]

New Facebook Bug.

I recently discovered a hidden comment on one of my posts on facebook.  It was a flattering comment, but it appeared hidden.  I clicked on unhide, and it showed up.  Then when I refreshed my page, it was hidden again.  Seems like a new filter on facebook is buggy and creating problems.  When I searched [...]

Besides my book…

I had a project on the back burner for quite sometime.  Going through what I have in the past few years, I hit this project hard.   I decided it was time.  The project will help a lot of people not just going through the same thing as me, but just help people clarify the [...]

What real marriage looks like.

Lifelong commitment is not what everyone thinks it is.  It's not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It's not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It's not a clean home and a homemade meal every day. It's someone who steals all the covers or snores [...]
