What do you need?

February 5, 2020

Talk about a big question. Many times, we are very good at disliking and avoiding the very things we need most. Be it public speaking, eating healthy or something else. I got to thinking about this when I was doing some exercise. On a very simple level, I need to do more stretching. I do […]

There’s been more excitement at our house! I’d like to introduce everyone to Sir Angus, who is Sir Oliver’s cousin from Scotland! He’s part of the piper guard that protects the Royal family at their Balmoral estate in Scotland. Yes, he plays the bagpipes sometimes! Note his very sharp uniform including the official plaid kilt!

Comments Off on Merry Christmas from Sir Oliver

Sir Oliver is all excited because he got one of his Christmas gifts early this year. As you can see, it’s a little drum and he just loves it. We’ve had to set some rules, however. No banging on it before 7 am and after 8 pm. Sir Oliver also has his own little Christmas […]
