"Contesting" Your Success



I have been targeted by a lot of contests lately, and I have to tell you, I find it quite exciting. When I have a chance to win something...and it can really be just about anything...I all of a sudden have a strong and fervent desire to WIN!

I don't think I am alone. I may be one of the few who starts living my life according to the prize I am [not] guaranteed to win, but I think most people are fairly jazzed by the…

No College Bowl Games

Here's a sad thought.  In an effort to cut back costs due to medical bills, my wife and I cut out cable tv which included ESPN. I just checked the bowl schedule and all the major bowls can only be seen on ESPN.  One of the only games I can watch today is Florida vs Penn State on ABC.  How sad...no Rose Bowl and no National Championship!!
