Airline Fares

I’ve been reading those airline reduced fares and they are very tempting.  There are so many wonderful places here in the U.S. to visit.  Over the years I have given talks in all of our fifty states and although the audiences have been different in many ways they were all Americans.  I’ve given talks for…

Air Fares

Air Fares.  If you haven’t checked them out recently there are still some fantastic air rates to some cities. If you haven’t seen this wonderful country why not book a trip, even for a weekend to some city you have never visited.  My speaking assignments took me to all 50 states and to many wonderful…

Church Choirs

Church choirs.  Here at our church we are blessed with a terrific choir. Each Christmas time they present a special concert and this year I have been asked to introduce one of the numbers.  The other evening I attended their choir practice and for the first time I witnessed all of the hard work that…
