Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

We've been hit hard by Ole Man Winter. I think we'll probably get about twenty inches of snow and it will take us a while to dig our cars out and the roads to be fully cleared and safe for the brave drivers.

Well, I'm not foolhardy and so today I'll take the time to relax and catch up on a few things that need my attention. For now, it's good to be indoors and I'm thankful for the warmth that I have.

Yeah Graduation Day - Citizens' Police Academy



Earlier this evening, I graduated from the Howard County Police Department Citizens' Police Academy. After eleven (11) weeks of classes, I received my certificate which stated that I demonstrated a commitment to develop a strong police/community relationship and a safer Howard County.

I must say that this experience has heightened my respect for the police force in their training and their efforts in serving and protecting the citizens of Howard County. I learned a lot and was glad that I participated in this class.

I met a lot of good folks and we all had fun along the way!

The Daily Motivator - "Fill Your World"

I received this daily motivator from a friend of mine on Thursday, December 3, 2009
and wanted to share it with you. It's a great lesson in karma!


Be a friend, and you will have a friend. Give, and you receive.

Teach, and you will learn. Offer encouragement, and you'll be lifted up.

Listen intently, seeking to truly understand, and you will be understood. Be respectful and you'll be respected.

Life is a mirror that reflects back to you what you think, what you expect, what you feel, and what you do. The way to improve the reflection is to improve what's being reflected.

Be the love, be the compassion, be the strength, be the responsibility that you wish to see in others. Be the best example you can imagine and you'll be pleased with how your example is followed.

The way you most sincerely live is magnified by all that is around you. Live true to your highest purpose, and that purpose expands to fill your world.
