Logo or Logos?

It’s pretty common for churches these days to have a slogan. We want it to be short (so it can be remembered) and encouraging (so people will want to remember it). Something like … “A family place” “Worship in peace” “A place to call home” “Where Jesus is Lord!” “Taste and see that the Lord… Read more »

Whatever Happened to HIPAA?

As a volunteer with both our local hospice and our local hospital, I have to take a class once a year about patient confidentiality. It is so drilled into our heads that we are not to discuss our patients’ medical condition(s), name or even beverage preference that I am afraid to even tell my wife… Read more »

As I sit here pondering the cost of having some federal workers go erect concrete barriers on all the roads leading to Lake Meredith verses the cost of the previous practice of never having anyone helpful there when you needed them, I’ve come to the conclusion that we’ve all been played. Scratch that.  We’ve all… Read more »

Sneaky Peek #3 of my New Mystery Novel

An excerpt from the new novel (coming October 2013) … I walked into the crowded bar, barely able to see for the intermittent bright lights and completely unable to hear due to the blaring beat of a song without a melody.  The locals were doing that dance where you put your hands in the air… Read more »
