I had a great time on 2020's Vegas poker run. Our big hand was 888 with pocket 8s. This pot started out 4 handed, we all only just called the big blind before we all called a raise from the small blind, so the pot was built up a little already. I'm closest to the button, so I feel with a medium pocket pair I'm being quite sneaky with my play here. The flop comes Q - 8 - 2. Oh yeah, I hit my 8!

During my last adventure to Central America I completed my 200-hour … [Read more...] about The Yogi’s Approach To Social Media
Oh yes, the app I’ve used and probably over-used in the past few years is now a thing of the past on my Android smartphone. There are many reasons I’m deleting Snapchat, and the primary reason is not because of their most recent update.

January 2018 Greetings family and friends, As I draw closer to my 30th birthday (aka the big 3-0), I decided I would try something new & send you a very personable update!

Once a year I make sure I take at least one retreat, or participate in one class that helps me evolve as a communicator, grow as a leader and stay sharp. In 2016 I applied for my county leadership program because I wanted to know what it was like for a group of leaders to find their swing, and surrender to a higher good. That wasn't the only reason I applied, but that’s what I want to reflect … [Read more...] about Surrendering for the sake of community
