Kicking my own A**
 I’m on the road this week.   Off in the wilds of Eastern Idaho helping out  and letting my kids play in the snow for a weekend.  It’s been pleasant.   The stress of day to day has dropped aside temporarily and the girls have relaxed.   And its given me enough time to to breath… and consider.  And of course that has lead to a little different approach to recording tonight.   I’m sitting here recording  with my portable microphone as the wind howling  and snow on the wayBetween helping and card games with the girls I had more time to process than I have had in a long long timeSo tonight isn’t going to be what I had originally planned for last week… and then this week..  Those episodes will come..InsteadI thought I’d share some things  that have been on my mind the last couple of days.    And perhaps… just perhaps call myself out publicly a bitWith an update to Beer in Front MentioningSupport the show (
