Be Prepared

Hi Folks:

In January, 1908 Lord Robert Baden-Powell published the first installment of the handbook Scouting for Boys, successfully launching the Boy Scout movement in England. The Boy Scout movement began in the US in the following year and has since spread around the world. The Scout Motto (as any Scout can […]

Alike

Hi Folks:

We’re stealing this short video link from Kalebra Kelby’s blog; we do so unabashedly for two reasons. First, it’s a wonderful  film, and well worth 8 minutes of your time. Second, it gives us the opportunity to introduce you to Kalebra’s blog, which is filled with insight, humour and warmth […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Happy Valentine’s Day, folks! Remember to share the love. Hug someone you love today. Or a stranger. Or, preferably, both!

A Tribute to Mike's Dad

Hi Folks:

Mike here. My dad, Jacques Séguin passed away last week so we wanted to take a moment or two to honour him. He turned 83 years young last spring, and he’s lived a good, long life. He showed up in mine when I was about four, and he’s […]

Echoes, Reflections and Speaking Into the Void

Hi Folks:

I don’t remember the last time we had a post that attempts to string together several semi-coherent thoughts, so it must be time for another one. This one is different from but connected to a few other posts we’ve done, including:

Finding Validation You Like Me! You Really […]

Remembering Father on Mother's Day...

Hi Folks:

This post is from the archives (2010), but as Mike’s mom and both of our dads are still with us (Marcia’s dad is 92 and going strong!) we thought it was worth revisiting!! _____

Hello Dear Ones!

As long as I can remember, every Mother’s Day – without exception – […]

He Says, She Says... F.E.A.R.

Hello, Dear Reader:

Someone (we’re not sure to whom to give credit) once described fear as an acronym:

We’ve all felt fear from time to time, whether it was a simple case of being startled, an overwhelming sense […]

He Says, She Says... Opposites

Hello, Dear Reader:

Our ‘He Says She Says…‘ post is a day later than normal this week, but we have friends in town and they get priority…

Our inspiration for this week’s post comes from a Seth quote:

“I am saying this as simply as possible. There are […]

He Says, She Says... 'Insights' from the Celestine Prophecy

Hello, Dear Reader:

When James Redfield’s book ‘The Celestine Prophecy‘ came out in in the early 1990s, we bought two copies of it and read them avidly. The ideas contained within the book added nicely to the stores of knowledge we already had. Time went by like it always does, […]
