    We all have things that come and go in our lives. We can become overly obsessed with one day and then before we know it, we have moved onto something else. As a blogger there are so many things to learn, information to process, and new programs and software to figure out.

  • Fishing Without A Pole

    The first time, and only time, I went noodling was with my dad, I was about 12 years old.  It’s one of those memories you just don’t forget.  This was a day full of firsts, full of screams, and full of laughs.  My dad has always loved to fish, and of course still does.  He wanted to show us a new way to fish. If you don’t know what noodling is let me give you a quick explanation of what I remember.  Regular fishing, you need your own fishing rod and bait.  With noodling, you don’t need a rod and bait is optional.  So first, you find a river or…

    In my home most dinners consisted of one pan meals. Finding the meals that we love that makes the least amount of mess possible. I hate dishes. With these one pan meals and fast food, my small family has kept the cost of food pretty low. When you consider it costs the two of us $7 or less to eat out, I usually don’t mind paying the money to avoid those dishes. Knowing that I got everything cleaned up the night before and I had a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is wash more dishes.  Do you know anyone that consistently burns water if…
