I first wrote this post for Father's Day in 2008.  Five years later I am still learning from my dad every day and I am so blessed to have him with me when I need advice, guidance or just some fatherly support.  Happy Father's Day to my Dad, and all the fathers out there!   My dad taught me a lot...
I recently visited my dad in Florida and got to meet the latest addition to our family... a cute PBGV pup named Winston.  I had never heard of the PBGV breed before.  Officially it stands for Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, but for me it just stands for adorable!  I noticed how much attention he g...
Sometimes if you're distracted, you'll miss out on hidden beauty.  I was recently at the Dallas Arboretum for an exhibit by the renowned artist, Dale Chihuly.  The artwork, which was brilliantly displayed amongst the flora and fauna of the Dallas Arboretum, was truly a sight to behold, but as I t...

This is Isabel Celis. She's 6 years old and went...
Getting to and from Hampton Roads is going to be even easier in the coming months… and that’s a welcome development for area residents.  Earlier this week, a press conference was held to announce that People Express Airlines (PEOPLExpress), a new airline, reviving the name and spirit of the iconi...
This week marks the grand opening of my friends' latest restaurant venture... Thairrific.  A full service Thai Restaurant located at 4000 Cedar Spring Boulevard (@Throckmorton) in Dallas.  I have been over there for the past few evenings helping them (and eating) and I have to say that I predict ...
Wow... I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted.  Let me just say that rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated! As many ActiveRainers know, I was in Seattle back in June to present along with Debe Maxwell at RainCamp.  It was a great experience and I was so excited to pr...
These days in Dallas, Blue is in... and nobody is sad about it.  The Dallas Mavericks have the NBA Finals tied at 2-2 and Blue is a happy color for Dallasites.  Frankly, it's also a happy color for Clevelanders because polls show that practically everyone in Cleveland is cheering for the Mavs sin...
