Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Further Ruminations

Posted 04-12-2015 at 06:01 PM by John Pickard

I've been doing some reflecting – I suppose that's well in keeping with my first blog post – and decided I should share some of it, and some of the realizations I've had the last couple of weeks.

One of those realizations is a recurring one: I can't reach all my goals overnight. That's been a problem with me my whole life, to be honest, setting a goal and throwing myself at it, then being disappointed when I can't make it work before dinner. I wind up spreading myself too...

A New Day

There are moments in life that you simply don't expect. Events that blindside you, come from out of nowhere. And very often they are precipitated by the simplest of things, but result in a life-changing realization – dare I say, revelation.

It's also very true that we tend to learn more from our mistakes than we do from our successes.

I should know. I'm the poster child for making mistakes. Some of them have been real doozies...

Blog Test

Posted 03-25-2014 at 08:55 PM by Darrell Lawrence

Is the Blog working, or is it not working? That is the question as asked by Shakespeare many moons ago.

Together, we shall take a journey into the inter-web to discover the answers to that age old question.

Be prepared to see things you have never seen before, never experienced before. Be prepared to be amazed at the wonders that will present themselves to you.

Let us begin the long, eventful journey...

The journey into our inter-web minds!...

Perspective on Avatar

Posted 02-17-2010 at 07:01 PM by shastastar

I was late coming to this party for many reasons that are not important and did not get to experience Avatar until toward the end of January. Nevertheless, going in I thought I knew what to expect: over the top because computers now make it possible visuals combined with a plot similar to Fern Gully. By the time I saw Avatar I had read many things about it: the obvious and not so subtle references to unobtanium, numerous reviews, a perspective from native indigenous populations that this film reflected...
