A Day of Hope For Families This Thanksgiving!

A Day of Hope is a program of ASI, California State University, Stanislaus. We collaborate with public and community members in conducting fund raising events, working to raise money to purchase food for needy families. The food items are later assembled into baskets and are delivered to Stanislaus County families for the Thanksgiving holiday.

A Day of Hope is only three weeks away from its basket and turkey delivery day on Nov 23rd, and they’re working very hard to keep their commitment to feed 250 families in the Central Valley this Thanksgiving.

There’s a lot of ways to get involved, locally or through monetary donations.

Join A Day of Hope on Facebook and help those less fortunate have a Happy Thanksgiving!

BadMsM & The Tribes Casebook

Well, in case you’ve just gotten your copy of Tribes by Seth Godin, Seth has an extra bonus for you: a free PDF download of the Tribes casebook!

The casebook was compiled from the site on Ning. It was invitation only for the first few months, and I was very humbled to be included. There’s a lot of good things going on there.

FYI- my submission is on page 173!

Birthdays: what’s up with that?

Zach on his first birthday

Zach on his first birthday

My oldest son turns 20 today. How can a such a simple milestone make me feel like I’m in the middle of the wedding scene in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’? Like the song ‘Sunrise, Sunset’ goes, “I don’t remember getting older, when did he?”

It’s an incredible thing to watch you kids grow up, because you can reach back and remember all those other milestones, and it seems like last week. The problems don’t go away, in fact, I’d trade today’s problems for crayon drawings on the walls and scraped knees any day. It’s all perspective, I guess.

But now as I look up at the handsome young man (and see his dad at the same age), I realize it’s just another bend in the road, and there’s plenty more to come.

Happy Birthday, Zach!
