“Inaction breeds doubt and fear.

Action breeds confidence and courage.

If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it.

Go out and get busy.”

Soldier & Loyal Dog Make Final Journey Together

In Animals, Inspirational Quotes, Interesting Photos on March 10, 2011 at 10:17 pm

A true story of the bond between man & his best friend.

The body of a British soldier shot dead in Afghanistan was being flown home Thursday – alongside the loyal dog who died of a seizure after his master was killed.

Lance Cpl. Liam Tasker, a dog handler with the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, was killed in a firefight with insurgents in Helmand Province last week. Theo, his bomb-sniffing springer spaniel, suffered a fatal seizure hours later at a British army base.

The 26-year-old soldier and the dog had been in Afghanistan for six months, uncovering roadside bombs. In February, the defense ministry announced that Theo had been so successful – finding 14 hidden bombs – that his tour of duty had been extended by a month.

Please keep Lance Cpl. Liam Tasker’s family in your thoughts and prayers.  May Theo and Lance rest in peace.

Ben Stein on Life Insurance

In Inspirational Quotes, Why you need life insurance on February 23, 2011 at 2:35 am

The famous Ben Stein on why you need life insurance:

This is only an excerpt; please read the full article here!

I wish I could show to every man who has not bought life insurance, or enough life insurance, how fearful those left behind without enough money are, and how relatively comforted and grateful those who have enough insurance are.

If husbands could take a moment to foresee what their potential widows’ lives would be like without their regular paycheck or pension check, their very next call would be to their insurance agent.

Of course, times are tough. We all know that. Almost everyone has been hit hard. I know I have been. But what is more of a necessity than keeping your loved ones secure? What expense is more responsible and adult than sacrificing now to take care of those you love down the road when the inevitable happens?

I don’t work for an insurance company or agency and no one in my family does. But I see the look on my wife’s face when she’s napping beside me, and that’s enough to say what I just said.

These are very powerful words; well put Mr. Stein!

Monday Morning Motivation: Vince Lombardi

In Inspirational Quotes, Monday Morning Motivation, Sports on February 7, 2011 at 9:49 pm

“The inches we need are everywhere around us.”

-Vince Lombardi

I am not a Green Bay fan (nor am I a Steelers fan), but it is very neat to see the Vince Lombardi trophy heading “home” with the Green Bay Packers. 

In a year when “Lombardi” is a hit on Broadway, it is altogether fitting that the trophy that bears his name is headed back home.

No rewrite was needed for this script, and all the actors played their parts to near-perfection last night as the Packers made history and added to their own rich history.

They jumped ahead early in Super Bowl XLV and led the entire way. But in exhausting fashion, they had to hang on for dear life after their 21-3 lead was repeatedly cut into by the determined Steelers, who kept coming and coming but came up short.

In the end, the Packers made one final defensive stand for a 31-25 victory at Cowboys Stadium.

“The Vince Lombardi Trophy is finally going back home,” coach Mike McCarthy said.
