IS YOUR LIFE A LITTLE SALTY?

I grew up in Utah pretty close to the Great Salt Lake so this story was particularly interesting to me.  “Once an unhappy young man came to an old master and told him he had a very sad life and asked for a solution.  The old master instructed the unhappy apprentice to put a handful […]

As a boy I loved being in the Boy Scouts program.  I loved to camp, hike, fish and be outdoors 24-7.  The Boy Scouts allowed me to do all of those things.  When I became the father of three sons I wanted the same for my boys.  We were all actively involved with the Boy […]

He ate a tuna fish sandwich for lunch every day for those 30 years.  No […]
