  • Officiating: How is it?

    I really like to talk about football officiating.  I like to listen to others talk about football officiating.  I especially like to listen when the people doing the talking think they know the rules but couldn’t be more wrong.
    There is always a lot of talk about officiating in sports of all kind but in my opinion more people are wrong about, or over-react, to football officiating.  
    I have many examples, though not as many as I might, because I rarely sit in the stands during a high school game.

    We’ve all been there.
    What do you get someone for their birthday who, shall we say, is “more experienced.”
    How many ties, pair of socks and underwear can one man possible need?
    As far as the fairer gender, more specifically a woman pushing triple digits, what do you get her?
    What kind of unique and fun birthday gift  could one possibly get for someone who has pretty much seen and done it all?

  • Tree bark and winter interest

    There are certain trees that consistently remain my favorites.  When I think about their common characteristics, one thing stands out: the bark.  Interesting bark is always there, whether the tree is leafing out, blooming, or showing dramatic fall color.  Bark remains constant whether the tree is good, bad, pretty or ugly.
