BarrelCam™

It’s been fun adding TM to random things I make up. Like BarrelCam™, it’s where I put my phone in my barrel at work and take the audience for a ride while I work. Honestly if any of my ideas ever made it big, I should get some credit at least for them!!

SammyLand, sadly it’s a real country haha, it used be called EarthLand I guess until they got annoyed by people for some reason and changed it, it literally makes no sense at all. If I could though I’d copyright and Trademark that name and make it into a cool theme park!!

Create something and dream big! Someday you’re silly idea could become reality, even if it’s not you putting it into reality and someone else reaping all the greatness from it! 🙂

YOU are AMAZING!!

I hope you never let anyone else tell you otherwise, you ARE amazing!! You are a blessing and you are uniquely awesome!!  You can change the world with a simple smile or you can transform the world with a hug. All you have to do is be yourself and you’ll do great things!!

 

Thank you for being who you are!!

Be The Best

Be the best you can be
Don’t forget to smile at me
I’m only a custodian and clean up your mess
But I really must confess

I am more than you think
I don’t always mind the stink
As long as it helps someone out
You’ll find out what I”m all about

God has been good to me
Giving me a job where I can help others
Doing a job of a servant
I hope you’ll be observant

The next time you’re in school or at a store
Take a look at the one wiping up the floor
They are servants to help the world shine
I know that’s what’s always on my mind

God bless and give a high five to a custodian sometime!

Discontinued Foods

SURPRISE, none of the pictures in the thumbnail are in the Top 10 list haha and I’m pretty sure we still have a few of these items out there in stores. BUT How many of you remember the items that he lists?

I remember maybe half of them. The dunkaroo’s for sure were a favorite of mine growing up.  I remember a snack I used to get in Middle School called Chortles, they were chocolate infused crackers I believe shaped like turtles…

Have a great day and if you can, what’s a favorite snack/drink they don’t sell anymore that you used to love??

 

That Pepsi Blue wasn’t bad when they had it either, the blueberry pepsi….. I wonder if they still have it somewhere.

LATEST NEWS

So, last August I got a full time job finally in the School District I’ve been working at.  This meant that I had to give up a few things, one of the biggest was to have to back out of being a cross country assistant coach, which was my dream from the very beginning.  Some smaller things was moving to a different school, not getting cans, scrap metal, spare change, and ruling the roost like I was used to at my previous school. Because of this change though I get to work less at Steinhafels and therefore open up more free time for myself which I’m not used to having.  I also got an apartment now and have been moving into that and finding joy in having a place like an apartment, which is very hard since I used to live in a condo.  This year I am hoping to learn how to cook a little and maybe find that special girl!! 🙂 haha a boy can dream right?!

 

Anyways, you haven’t heard from my friend Steph Mox lately, but she’s having another kid and moving to another state, which is hard to take sometimes because it’s been such a joy getting to visit them! If she had the time to write on her blog I guarantee it would be something of legend with the amazing things that God is doing in her and her husbands lives.  There’s certain people that when you see them, you realize there’s something different about them. They have a sort of glow around them, and that is the Mox’s.  I’ve never seen two people more in love with God than those two are and they are a shining beacon for the world to see.  I hope one day to reignite my passion for God and shine as bright as they do for his glory.

With the new year, I did purchase the bible on audiobook and have been listening to it in the car, I realize I have been fading as a Christian and want that light to burn bright within me so that everyone knows that God is alive and on the move.  So, I have been doing what I can do get back into the word and grow in my faith once again.

What’s something you’re doing this new year to get back into the swing of things? Is there anything or are you doing everything you want to be doing? How are you shining in the darkness?

"Don't forget to smile!"
