Scouting in The Tall Timbers District

We had the pleasure to chat with Bruce Tough about the Tall Timbers Annual Business & Community Leadership Dinner.  The event will be held February 21, 2017 at The Woodlands Country Club, Palmer Course.  Each year the Boy Scouts of America’s Tall Timbers District hosts this event to bring together local community leaders to share the mission of Scouting and report on the progress of the Scouting program in their community.  At the dinner, the Tall Timbers District gives its Good Scout Award to an individual in the local community who exemplifies the values and ideals of Scouting through community leadership and service.



Eric Church vs. Ticket Scalpers

Eric Church just did something really cool!  He canceled more than 25,000 tickets from his Holdin’ My Own tour that were originally bought by scalpers. He’s putting those tickets on sale TODAY at noon local time in each city.  Try hitting up, and click on “tickets” for the date you want.

I don’t see any Texas dates yet (which is a bunch of B.S.) but we’ll let you know as soon as something’s announced.

Here’s Eric’s message:  Quote, “Our fans know that as long as we tour, we’re going to do everything we can to make sure they pay face value for the ticket.”


Being Without Our Phone Gives Us PTSD

Wow!  We are sick and need help.

A study out of Hungary just found that when people between 18 and 26 had their phones taken away, they started showing the same symptoms as people with PTSD. That included an elevated heart rate, higher stress levels, and fidgeting and scratching . . . all of which went away as soon as they got their phones back, or even got their hands on ANY phone, not even their own.

Seriously….WTF is wrong with us?


(I’ve included a little something I did to showcase how the wife and I spend quality time.)

Parenting At It’s Finest

Every once in a while, I come across a parenting story that makes me think “That’s something I would do.”

This one is about 18-year-old Connor Cox who’s a freshman at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania.  A few weeks ago, he got a care package from his mom which isn’t abnormal I guess.  But when he opened it up, all he found inside was a bunch of trash.

It was the trash he was supposed to take out back when he was at home for winter break, but he forgot. Connor posted a picture of the box of garbage on Twitter and now it’s going viral.

Well done mom.  Well done.
