Notes from Steve

A good friend and I were having a discussion the other day. We were talking about the recent massacre in Las Vegas. This was in the immediate aftermath, and confusion and frustration were flowing. Right after, people were talking gun control and motives. This friend said that it doesn’t pay...

Making the Rounds

Shelly and I just spent 4 leisure days in Arizona. We were invited down to Scottsdale by some good friends. We slept well, ate well, and worked out every day. We even had a chance to hike to the top of a small mountain. I’ve returned to work refreshed and...

Notes from Steve

The latest attempt at killing Obamacare – the ACA – is dead. In the last 20 minutes, the headlines were that the republicans were pulling the latest attempt from the scheduled vote because they didn’t have enough votes. I’m all for fixing what’s wrong with this program, but – if...

Notes from Steve

I wrote last week about being the challenged versus being challenged. I rode the Raccoon River Trail on Monday by myself. It’s about a 5-6 hour bike ride, and I thought it would be busy; nice day … holiday – perfect for a bike ride. It was oddly quiet –...

Notes from Steve

A friend wrote me a note today and included was the message “Enjoy your health journey!” Well, I just got done telling Jordan that I fell off (hard and big time) the BOSU stability ball last night at the fitness center. My shoulder is hurting. In addition, I would kill...
