The new year has snuck up on me and it is time for the annual news of the Anderson family. You may not know, but this is the very reason I started this web site. It began in 2000 as a way to use the web to begin to communicate Christmas greetings to our family […more]

Danny’s Ride

Most of my friends know I am a musician.  A lot of people have influenced me (musically) through the years.  None more than a band director from my high-school years, Danny Leonard.  Danny had (and still has) a music school in Charleston, SC where I grew up.  My junior year of high-school, I joined the […more]

Happy New Year!

Jan 2, 2009 | | Say something

Happy New Year A good friend said to me yesterday, “I hope at the end of 2009, you will say that this was one of the best years of your life.’” What a terrific thought! It reminds me that, although I cannot control everything that happens to me, I potentially have more input into how […more]

It was just a week ago. The venue we had planned to use for our retreat had fallen through. We had a little over a week to find something. I was fresh out of ideas. I was depending on the others to figure something out. I wanted to contribute, but I couldn’t. Then I thought […more]

There are a few blogs that I routinely read. One of them includes some proverbs from different cultures. This one stuck me as really profound: The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today. I’m too busy to write on my blog today. I have things to […more]

I just have to brag on my friend, Dave. He’s known to the Cobra community as Painter Dave. I stopped by to see him last week as a customer was picking up their Cobra from his body shop. They buy them as kits and he makes the body shine. He sent me the this link […more]
