Reading List

OK, so I have a bunch of books I’ve been wanting to read, and never really take the time to read them.  Most of the books I read tend to be more in the non-fiction realm these days.  Although I did decide to start reading Harry Potter last week and zipped through the book in […]

Are You “En Fuego”?

Last week I put up three seperate posts about the volunteers at the Monterey Bay aquarium and why they volunteer.  I asked myself what we can learn to ignite a passion and commitment in our volunteers.

Monterey Aquarium – Unpaid Staff (Part 1)

Several weeks ago my wife and I visited the aquarium in Monterey for the first time.  I love the ocean and I love aquariums!  It was amazing seeing the different animals and watching the SCUBA diver feed the fish in the kelp forest.

Character Matters

OK, so I haven’t been all that shy with my opinions regarding Barry Bonds around here.  So how about one more post about it…for now.  I read this article this morning over at Monday Morning Insight.  He is in fact kinda fair to Barry and pretty nice to the guy.  But he pulls some great […]
