Notes from Steve

Kudos to all who braved the blizzard and went above and beyond. I seriously hate February. Not in a jokey humorous way - but rather, in a full out deep seated hate. I realize that February, and all its dreadfulness is as it is in Iowa AND nothing short of...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

Another two weeks has passed. This time I don't really feel like writing, but I'm up against a deadline. It gives me great appreciation for people who write for a living. "Living", that's a word that catches my eye (but I digress). This past weekend we had an event to...

Notes from Steve

I am a duck. I’m cool and calm on the surface, but underneath it all is a nonstop struggle to succeed. My feet are like orange spatulas. - Jarod Kintz A couple of weeks ago as I was driving Shaila and two of her friends home from Webster City, we...

Brave Last week Steve referred to a friend of his who chose ‘Brave’ as their word for 2016. I am that friend. You all know Steve - he thinks big, looks ahead, and is always aiming for the best. So I thought that I too would pick a word. My...

Notes from Steve

A friend chose the word “brave” to define his year. (others chose words like “wise”, “focus”, “engage”, “tenacity”, “embark”) The dictionary says brave means: ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage. I think sometimes with guys, our machismo gets the best of us and our way of...
