A James Lloyd Break

via GIPHY James Lloyd has been a friend for nearly 40 years. He’s a professional speaker… an inspirational speaker… and when he accepted a gig in Albany he contacted me to make sure we had some time together. I picked James up at the airport and went straight to Shirley’s for lunch… I made a short video of our afternoon. Hope you can enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKjaN7xo6lU

Saturday Night Buzz

Buzz is doing MUCH better tonight. And as much as we know so many of you would like to see him, trust me, it’s a good time to pray from where you are and keep your distance. Just let him heal up. Here’s why. First of all, he’s naked. I don’t mean barely clad; I mean jay bird, day he was born, birthday suit “I’m hot and get this stuff OFF ME!” naked. After 40 years, I thought

Carver Cafe

I don’t really like the cold and rain, and even less on a motorcycle. So it’s surely not like me to get up on a wet and chilly Oregon day and fire the old beemer up for a ride.

My March Madness

  Woke up really early this morning and remembered the beemer had a near dead battery… … so I went out to the garage, and sure enough, it was dead. Had to bump start the bike at 5 in the morning. Well, I could’ve waited, but why would I? Once I got it going, I had to figure out where to go, you know; to charge up the battery you got to keep it running a while. So I looped my town and stopped at

Nothing Compares to You (aka Dancing on the Ceiling)

  Ok, I admit it. I’m sometimes stuck in the 80s. I really like Sinead O’Connor. Just listen to this voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auUPqxI1vqg And, another ‘ok’… ok? Ok, the lyrics don’t really tie in to what I’m about to say, but the chorus does. “Nothing compares to you.” And it’s not that you’re unique, one of a kind, or that they brok

From Sandy Lane to Sandy Blvd.

I haven’t lived in the same town as my parents for over 27 years. I didn’t have any real hopes of being able to either. My folks worked in the ministry from the time I graduated high school until, well, now. Because of the generosity and gratitude of a church in Atlanta, now called The Path, mom and dad were able to stay in their house of 27 years even as their ability to serve the church grew to be less
