House for Sale

Yesterday was tough. We just listed our house for sale. We have been here for 12 years. It is the best house we have ever owned and we will never have a house as nice again. The good news in all this is that when the house sells we will be able to leave Packer Land (Green Bay Packers football) behind! A lot of work to do to get a house ready to sell….

My Birthday

I was born in ’55 and today I am 55! Happy Birthday to me!

Also, I am now enrolled in the University of San Fransisco. I am taking an online certificate program in “Marketing with Social Media”. I will be learning how to help businesses leverage Facebook and Twitter in the marketing campains. This is an 8 week course that starts April 1st. I can’t wait to get started.

There is a seminar on March 18th put on by the Chamber of Commerce called Social Media 101. This is a half-day conference on understanding Social Media in business. This is looking more and more like the right career choice for me.

Update on my Heart Issues

Most of you know that I developed a heart condition known as Atrial Fibrillation in early 2000. Every so often my heart would speed up and I ended up having 4 angiogram surgeries. Finally, a year ago March I had an exciting new surgery. They used a laser to burn small holes in my heart. Since the operation I have not had a single episode! I am off the medications, I can exercise again and feel “cured”!

A New Chapter in My Life Came & Went….

It has been quite a while since this website has been updated. In June 2008 I got a job working in Mankato, Minnesota for Superior Edge. This company was founded by Jerry Johnson – the same person that started CWC / Firepond – where I worked most of my adult life – from 1984 to 1998. Since 1998 I have held a couple of positions – some more successful than others. So in June 2008 I had come full circle so to speak. My house was in Eau Claire – but my job was in Mankato and by February 2009 I moved into a small office in Minnetonka. Still quite a distance from Eau Claire (4am alarm clock!) but at least I was in my own bed next to my wife. I went into the job thinking it would be the last one I would ever have. Like so many  others that have worked for Jerry, this time it only lasted until Thanksgiving of 2009. The layoff was not a surprise nor unwelcome given the cast of talented people that preceeded me. My head was high  and I started down what is turning out to be a very wonderful path.

Eric is 32 – I can’t believe that I have a son over 30! The time goes by so fast. I really like the pictures of Eric when his kids are in their first year. Every one of them show a loving, caring dad. I am very proud of the man Eric has turned out to be.

Happy Birthday Eric!

Mary Beth and the “B” word…..

MB in a Balloon over Eau Claire  I know what you might have been thinking – but the “B” word refers to “Birthday”! She would not like me to tell you how old she is – but she looks pretty good for someone born June 3, 1956. Please feel free to register and leave her a birthday message. She would love to hear from all of you. The picture here is a couple of years ago when she was able to reach one of her “Life Goals” – a ride in a hot air balloon. It was an awesome ride and she was able to keep the balloon inflated all on her own! LOL

I love her with all my heart. Happy Birthday Mary Beth!

If you want a site but are afraid to do it on your own I can help. All you have to do is register and leave a comment with a description of what you want. I will contact you and work out the details. You can have all this for only $6.95 a month. This is a fantastic offer!

The last section is my Google Ads. If you see a link that you are interested in – just click and I will make a few cents to help pay for my web sites. Only click if you are interested in the advertisers – it will help out both of us.

Thanks – Make it a Great Day – You deserve It!

Full House!

Summer is here and we have full house! Our son Eric & his partner Emilie have moved in to the lower level of our house along with Emily’s 4 year old Melissa and Eric’s 3 year old Ava and 5 year old Zennon. Eric has his kids during the summer and his ex – Tammie has them during the school year. Mary Beth & I really wanted to be able to spend a lot of time this summer with the grandkids and this seemed like the perfect way to do it. Our house has plenty of room and it gives Eric & Emilie the ability to save some money and move into an apartment this fall when Ava & Zennon go back to their mom.

We bought Ava her first bike and all three kids love to go for rides with their “Nana”. We are doing lots of outside activities. The kids love helping in the garden as well as playing with toys and riding bikes. We have set up the family room with their inside toys. We are strongly enforcing a new rule – if you take it out you put it back BEFORE leaving the room. So far we have about 95% compliance!

We are really looking forward to the summer. We will keep you posted on various activities and I promise to include lots of pictures!

Happy Birthday Haley & Amber!

On April 9th our twin granddaughters – Haley & Amber became teenagers! They are now 13 years old. Mary Beth and I could not be there to celebrate – but they are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers every day. Particularity on their birthday.

We don’t get to see them as much as we would like. However, we are in touch by email almost every week. We cherish those emails nearly as much as the time we get to spend with them. Our family is so important to us and Haley & Amber are a BIG part of our family. They are growing up so fast – but they are so great! How many teenagers email their grandparents EVERY week?

Haley – Amber – we love you very very much and cannot wait to see you!

Love – Nana & Gramps!!!!
