Opinions

From my battle of the socks to my latest skir- mish with the brush inthe yard, my summer has been filled with drama of all kinds. Life is relent- less. The more I try to duck the battles, the worse they hit me. Take my latest battle, for example. Mowing my yard became an obstacle course earlier...
Most people have a favorite tv show, that they can binge watch time after time and never get sick of it. For me that show has always been Parks and Recreation. In fact I am currently binge watching it on Netflix for at least the 10th time.  I think what I really like about the show aside from the...
Faded flowers end up in the compost. Sour milk goes down the drain. And old socks? Well, they normally end up back on our feet. Unless, of course, you have the problem I’m experiencing.  I’ve waged a war on my assortment of socks. And it’s one that I am quickly losing. Sport socks, dress socks,...
Almost anyone I ever talk to in my personal life can all agree on one thing.  They don’t like change.  When it comes to my professional career of listening and telling stories I find this to be the same thing. Whether it's someone retiring after a 40 year career, or a company going through major...
A poll released this week regarding retirement caught my attention. While I’m still many years away from being retired, it always seems to somehow peak my interest. The poll shows that nearly one-quarter of Americans say they plan to never retire. Another quarter of those surveyed say they expect...
Over the weekend I had one of my favorite ‘proud dad moments.’  Before I go any further no I don’t have any human kids currently, instead we have a soon to be three year old dog named Finn, along with two older cats Eloise and Snowball.  On Saturday, I had even more of a reason to be proud as Finn...
The Minnesota Twins got shafted.  How can the second best team in baseball only end up with two players on the American All-Star Team? How can the team that has racked up 156 home runs end up with only one batter represented in the All-Star game? Quite frankly, the Twins got snubbed like none other...
When I moved to Minnesota over two years ago, I remember someone commented on my Facebook post about moving.  That person gave me some of the best advice that I could listen to. They told me “make sure you go to different places that are unique to the area you're living in. Go to small businesses...
This past weekend my family celebrated a remarkable accomplishment that doesn’t happen nearly as often as it should. Many couples simply don’t get the opportunity for various reasons.  My parents, Clifford and June Bussler, reached their 60th wedding anniversary. We marked the special occasion by...
The same year I was born the movie Toy Story came out. That’s why it was so fitting that 24 years later I celebrated my birthday by seeing Toy Story 4 on Saturday. The Toy Story movies have always been my favorite movies, and ever since I was little I was always excited to watch it and was...
