Beer is carbs.
I don't eat many carbs
I certainly drink my fair share

Well today is my oldest's 13th birthday.  I now have a teenage girl in the house.

She's a great kid, and I don't anticipate too many issues, but yeah... she's still a teenager, so...

Thanks CD.  I know that teens start wanting and needing to assert their independence, she already does that a lot and it's fine.

But we still do a ton of stuff as a family, she loves camping and she also loves a lot of the same goofy stuff I always did-- she's an avid reader and has gone through my entire fantasy/sci fi library from when I was a kid, she loves 80s music and still seems astounded that I know every song she can throw at me, and she even plays French horn, just as I did.  That was her choice, I actually urged her to pick a more versatile/practical instrument like trumpet or alto sax.

So I manage to stay in touch with her emotionally, for the most part.

Best years ever!   Your great bond you already have will grow even more.   
I always felt the biggest challenge was the company they keep- so involving in that without micromanaging was key.

Since we are discussing food-let’s turn this thread to “ meaty”!

What have I done this day/week/month to help make this world better?  ( the concept is not to brag, rather to share ideas they might inspire others)

So I became aware of a group near me called Project lift. They work with troubled young people who have had challenges with crime and drugs. They teach them a vocation such as auto mechanic for example.

They have a great program where you can actually donate the exact amount of money to completely repair a beat up car so that it can be given to a family that needs help with transportation, and the people working on the vehicle are some of these troubled youth.

Since I loved the concept and want to make this world a better place I selected one vehicle and donated all of the money to completely repair it from top to bottom to give to a family. It’s awesome because they give you an exact dollar estimate and complete detailed breakdown of every repair the car needs.

I have something in the works for October as well but I will wait to share. What say all of you who are so passionate about our world?

I maintain the passion for education, and will continue with that as I grow older. We just had a classroom named after us at the (formerly) local college we support. Our scholarship recipients alternate yearly between engineering and nursing. Meaningful degrees, for sure, and desperately needed.

A small thing I do is speak to people, or wave, or nod.  The wife and I were just out for a run/walk.  There was one shorter black guy around my age just killing it running.  As he passed me I said "nice job" and he smiled and waved.  Other folks we wave at if they look up, or complement their dog, or something.  Most folks are friendly, and I think it brightens their day a bit, and mine as well.

I always speak to the folks at Kroger, many of them know me now.

I also made a sizeable donation to our scholarship fund, and they responded back exactly zero, nada.  They had staffing turnover and the new staff is apparently just nonresponsive.

I'm going to write the principal I think.  I may start a small scholarship at the local HS.  Maybe one day they will name a room after me.  Ha.

P.S. I don't mean for that to sound glib, it's a great thing Badge and his wife are doing, really.

Huge!!  That’s not achieved by short term contributions.  You reach that level by long term consistency!  Well done Sir and Mrs. 847
