David's Thoughts

Getting to Vermont is cheap and easy. Spirit, Jetblue, and Southwest airlines usually offer deals, especially if you purchase your tickets in advance. A ticket can cost as little as $30 one-way. You can rent a car from Boston’s Logan Airport or if you have great friends in the area, carpool to Vermont. Hotel prices range from super cheap to very expensive, so plan in advance. The drive to Vermont is simple: one hour to Vermont’s border and two hours from there to its biggest city Burlington. It is the second least populated state (Wyoming is first). Its capital of Montpelier is the least-populous capital in the U.S. It is the only state that does not have buildings taller than 124 feet. It is also a state that is being hit hard by climate change because many of its industries, such as sugar maple production, are affected by acid rain and warmer weather. Vermont is a great state to visit and learn about, especially when it comes to gay history, its home to a great company, and its awesome outdoor activities.

The Baltimore Eagle

Typically, on a Friday night, we would have dinner out before hitting the bar for a few drinks. However, now that the Eagle has opened its kitchen, we could dine AND drink all at once.  As most people that have been to the Eagle already know, there was a great deal of hype and anticipation for the food to roll out.  We had heard about the credentials of Master Chef Scholly, which include accomplishments, such as earning the 1996 German Master Chef of the Year, and of some of his clients of music royalty, i.e. Madonna, Springsteen, McCartney, Diamond, and Brooks. He even served the President Who Shall Not Be Named, before he became The President Who Shall Not Be Named.  Now it was time to finally try some of his offerings at the Eagle.

Depression– melancholy, despair, and unhappiness – is one of the greatest misfortunes and it has crept into the crevices and corridors of our faith communities. Anyone so suffering should seek pastoral and/or professional counseling and stay completely committed to their healing and recovery.

Great customer service is a critical part of your getting the wedding you want. Earlier in this series on choosing your wedding venue we’ve talked about guest capacity, reception location, ceremony location, parking, how venues handle catering, venue fees, the look and feel of the venue, visiting the venue, and trusting your gut. Now let’s talk about what makes for great customer service.

Man boobs and the real man

Back in the 1950s we were short on epithets and about the worst thing you could be called was a sissy. “Queer” was used sometimes, but it had none of the sexual connotations it carries today. In rural Nebraska, we didn’t know much about homosexuality.

Post-Election Support for LGBTQIA Students

Waking up on the morning of November 9, 2016 was a challenge.  I sat in bed and reread CNN headlines over and over again, thinking to myself “is this real life?” The misty morning didn’t help with the fogginess that overcame my brain.  The dreary weather only added to the feeling of complete despair and hopelessness.

In the past, I have written about the magic of the “Fish! Philosophy” and its four principles: Choose your attitude, make their day, be there, and play. I have found myself, and others around me, struggling with one of the these four, namely “Be there,” or as I call it, “Being present.” There is so much going on around us all the time – cellphones, TV screens, laptops – our brains are almost always over-stimulated. Even watching CNN is a chore, playing into our need to be overstimulated by not only a multi-panel discussion, but a quick moving news scrawler at the bottom of the screen, and usually a countdown clock to some main event they’ll be hosting.

Or learning to love your immigration attorney!

Traveling by air since January 20th, 2017 has become complicated for many noncitizens. The Executive Orders issued by President Donald J. Trump have caused heartache and fear to run rampant in immigrant communities. The first Executive Order (EO), dated January 27th, intended to prevent anyone who was from seven mostly Muslim countries entering the U.S. Those countries are Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Iran, and Libya. It also ended indefinitely the ability of Syrian refugees from entering the U.S., in spite of years-long background checks to ensure that anyone entering was not a radical jihadist. The travel ban extended to persons with “green cards,” as well as those with visitor or student visas, and those who had dual citizenship with one of the seven listed countries.

The internet saw a massive ransomware attack on May 12th, when computers in nearly 100 countries were hit and held hostage to hackers. The hackers demanded those affected pay a ransom to have their files and systems released. The attack hit medical networks and government agencies especially hard, as they are more vulnerable since they tend to upgrade their systems less frequently than businesses. It’s all a reminder of how important it is to safeguard your computer’s security.

Connor loves yard work and gardening. He spends most of his free time digging, planting, trimming, watering, fertilizing. He has built beautiful stone walls in several locations throughout our property. He has supplied the yard with trees, bird houses, and native plants to encourage birds and butterflies to visit us. He has made the yard as inviting as possible to the wild creatures that live in our neighborhood.
