FRO M T H E P U B L I S HER I have amazing news. The community rallied around Showcase Magazine and drove us to a victory in an international essay contest run by Microsoft to promote the new Office 365. The prize was a huge technology upgrade for our company and will bring a Top 10 level Microsoft executive to Danville to work with us for a day. This would not have been possible without the unbelievable support of hundreds of people in our community who voted every day. There are not enough thank yous in the world for the level of gratitude we feel. But let’s simply start with one. Thank you all very much. One of the great benefits from this contest is that we will be able to upgrade all the computers at the Andrew Brooks Media Group. And because of the generosity of Microsoft, we are going to refresh and donate all of our existing equipment to one or more local nonprofits to set up community computer labs. We are going to have an essay contest with a Facebook voting element which will help us choose the area organizations with whom to donate the equipment to set up the computer labs. Go to ShowcaseMagazine.com to register your organization and submit your organization’s essay. If you support a local organization, please encourage

their leadership to submit an essay and then you can help lead the Facebook promotion for them. The deadline for submissions is September 12th. Voting will begin on September 13, 2011 and run through the end of September. Facebook voting (number of LIKES) will account for a large portion of the final score. Microsoft bringing an executive here is a tremendous coup for our community. We will have an opportunity for which every other community in America would pay dearly: The chance to make an impression on one of the largest companies in the world which is expanding daily. This visit will allow us to plant the seed. But, the seed that is planted is up to us. As a community, we need to embrace this visit like communities welcome American Idol finalists. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our community and we must take full advantage of it. Let’s roll out the red carpet and hope for the best. You can only fly as high as you set your sight.

It takes astute strategic thinking to prosper in today’s job market. In fact, you can leverage off your current job and use a simple psychology that prospective job seekers go through. Strategically speaking, it is all about mastering your growth plan. The activities you are concentrating on now might not be working and one reason behind higher performance and income standard falls short of your job expectations. Not unsurprisingly, you probably did not think about or plan for today before it arrived.

it depends on the individual. You know best. You have to consider the consequences; working two jobs will be less time for everything else with added pressure. Ask yourself if the increase in income is worth the additional taxes you will pay or time you will spend working. Invest More Time in Your Present Job

Another possibility is to put in more time at your present job. Since you are probably paid according to time or efficiency, your income will probably rise with more time invested. This alternative is similar to the one above, Make a list of your expenses for one month.

Take On an Extra Job

Perhaps your primary job gives you great satisfaction. However, it does not provide a sufficient income. Taking a second job may be a better solution than changing jobs. Like everything else,

Learn To Enjoy Your Present Job

You will move towards your goals faster if you organize your present job so you enjoy it more. Make a list of things that make you happy at work or bring you satisfaction from your job. The list might include; what you have, what you have always wanted, where your advantages are, how tasks can be achieved in a pleasant fashion and so on. You will find the job itself probably is not so bad, whereby you have focused more on the negative and not the positive aspects. Be optimistic and start to take an interest in your field of expertise. Associate with people who do similar work and enjoy doing it. Allow them to pass their enthusiasm on to you. Maybe you will not get a raise at first, but you will be much happier. If I asked you, which you would prefer, money or happiness, what would you say? Over time, you will be noticed, if not by your superiors at work and business associates or partners, but by others. There are always plenty of jobs for a worker who is conscientious and an expert in his or her field. Those who are the best in the business have doors opened everywhere, regardless of whether such a qualified person is needed right then or not. Wise employers hire someone the moment they realize that a person can benefit their company. They do not wait for an empty position where they would be forced into a feverish search for an appropriate candidate.

The Power of One

Danville Community College President Dr. B. Carlyle Ramsey and Danville Community College Director of Development Shannon Hair

t he power of ONE1 makes a difference

by Marie Harris

One student at a time, that’s how Danville Community College impacts the Dan River region—with each student’s story being unique but also emblematic of shared DCC student experiences. Shannon Hair’s story is his story while at the same time every DCC student’s story—a story that speaks to why the success of “The Power of One,” the $7 million Major Gifts Campaign for Danville Community College’s students, is vitally important. His story follows—it and thousands like it are the reason for “The Power of One” community campaign. “I didn’t do a lot of traveling far from Danville as a child and teenager, so my perception of distance was longer than the distance really is,” explained Hair, DCC’s Director of Development. “UNC-Chapel Hill or VPI at Blacksburg seemed to be on the other side of the world in my teenage mind. I never could see myself traveling vast distances to college. Instead, I thought consistently of the local community college. If I had to retrace that choice, I still would follow the same path. I didn’t even apply to another college—Danville Community College had the engineering program I wanted.”

But easy turned into difficult quickly. “I remember going on campus—getting started, then being told that the drafting and design program was being phased out because of lack of graduates. By the time I got home that afternoon, I was very, very upset.” After a conversation with his parents, Hair said, “Mom and I marched and the word is MARCHED back over to Dr. Ed White’s office. That conference led to us ending up in Dr. Ramsey’s office, emphasizing to the president the need for the curriculum and the way it was making a difference in my life.” Dr. Ramsey listened. “We as students, about four from county high schools— Chatham, Dan River, Tunstall—and those of us from GWHS, sold the program to others. We made enough noise for the administration to listen and increased numbers.” The program remained in place. In 1996 it had one of the largest student enrollments; in 1998 it had one of the largest graduating classes. Administrators were gratified with their decision to keep the program intact. Almost 14 years later, that program still is in existence. While Hair was gaining his degree, he and his fellow students became an unofficial engineering family, keeping in touch through the years.

Hair enjoyed drafting classes during years at George Washington High School. While there he had taken other classes aligned with industrial technology. “DCC was where I wanted to be. With its programs Photosand were taken at Danville Science Center exhibits associated curriculum, transition from one program into the other was by the “Probably having individualsFoundation. like Bennie Biggs and sponsored Danville Regional going to be easy.” George Rogers as instructors, not only instructing but telling their personal stories, their stories of other

Danville Regional Medical Center CEO Eric Deaton, Danville Community College President Dr. B. Carlyle Ramsey, Danville Community College Director of Development Shannon Hair, and students of the nursing program students, showcasing that students were able to go away to college and come back to Danville made us aware of our own potentials. We were in constant contact daily with those instructors; they promoted concern for each other—they were genuinely interested in us. We got personal attention; we got life instruction. We knew they wanted us to succeed in all areas.” People like Bennie Biggs and Bill Soyars retired. The college didn’t hire just anyone to replace them. Administrators sought similar instructors—they hired people such as Jim Adkins, someone with commitment, who returned to the college he left to teach in its curriculum. Around January 1998 as Hair’s two-year program was moving toward completion, “I knew my sights were on employment with Dewberry & Davis, Inc., an engineering/architectural firm. I called them every month for eight months.” What kept Hair manning the phone? “I was told as a youngster to be persistent and never give up. By calling every month for eight months, I was a constant reminder that I shouldn’t be forgotten.” Hair was hired but only for a five-month position. “When the individual I replaced returned from military service, I was told I would not have a job. But, because of that persistence, we together turned a five-month, non-permanent job into a twelve-year career.” Why was Hair so persistent as a young adult just out of a two-year program? Hair says of those two years, “DCC’s past leadership throughout the region was based on integrity and support and that was promoted in every student. The emphasis daily was that you as a student must give your best and remember to represent your college and your family beyond your greatest expectations. That underlying message at DCC made many of us successful.”

After learning that his job at Dewberry was not going to be terminated, Hair returned to the DCC campus enrolling at night and on weekends in Old Dominion University’s TeleTechnet program which allowed him to pursue his four-year degree in Civil Engineering, a degree he completed successfully. Instead of moving elsewhere, Hair chose to remain in the Danville area. This choice allowed him to stay connected and pursue his desire to give back to the college.

To give back, he became a member of the Engineering Advisory Committee. In 2008, when the first Alumni Council was formed to oversee the operations of the alumni association comprised of over 76,000 alumni, Hair became one of the founding members of the governing board, meeting quarterly to advise and direct. In 2010, he was elected president of the Alumni Council. But, at the October 2010 meeting of the Alumni Council, Hair’s first meeting as president, he resigned from the council because of a conflict of interest. “Over the years, because of my commitment to the community and my involvement in civic organizations and outreach in the community, I had become more involved with Dr. Ramsey. A few years ago, I let him know that at some point in my life I wanted to be the DCC Foundation’s director.” Twelve years into his career, Hair received a phone call. It was Dr. Ramsey reminding him of that long ago conversation. The Foundation Director position was open. On the day that Hair resigned as the Alumni Council president, he did so as the new DCC Director of Development, a position that placed the alumni organization underneath his umbrella as Director of Development and Educational Foundation Executive Director. Hair has been the DCC Foundation director for ten months now. “I learned day-to-day at Dewberry how to respond with clients, how to

respond with fellow employees, and how to work with community members. That seedling planted at DCC was nourished and pruned over the years at Dewberry so that I ultimately could go into the interview process with confidence.” What Hair has become in a short 13 years is, according to his assessment, “a direct result of Danville Community College giving me a chance, a chance that would not have been possible if DCC had not been present in this community, a chance the college has given thousands from our region over the years.” The college that has filled a void in Southside Virginia for 75 years is now in need. State funding in the past ranged at 80 percent or above. Today, state funding has dropped below 60 percent with projections that the percentage of state operating revenue will decline further. In the past three years, DCC’s operating budget has been cut three times, while student enrollment grew. That scenario has kept administrators awake at night. Even with funding very tight, DCC has been known throughout its existence as a college that mirrored the region’s needs while also being very forthright, very cutting edge in its decisions being the first college in the state with a printing curriculum, the first with a data processing program, the first housing a large computer system. “We were not afraid to push the envelope as needs presented themselves, as technology changed; we are not afraid to push the envelope today with nanotechnology, battery development, to partner with international industries, to train in emerging business methods, and to train workforces. Numerous international companies would not have located in this region without DCC’s training capabilities: Essel Propack and Swedewood are only two of many.”

With state funding continuing to drop, how can Danville Community College be sustained? “By the community continuing to support financially, by community members continuing to talk support to local delegates, by community members committing themselves to support the direction we’re going in as they have always supported in times of need,” explained Hair.

“Because of vision, we are constantly adapting to community needs—we’re often called a chameleon, changing as the community’s needs change,” Hair emphasized. “Just one example is the nursing program, identified as a need in the late 1980s. For years we graduated certified nursing assistants and licensed practical nurses, graduating over 1,000 nurses by 2004. Upon the hospital’s sale and forward thinking of the Danville Regional Foundation, we not only have a health sciences building but we graduated our first 13 with associate degrees in nursing.

14 Showcase Magazine

“This coming year we have 30 in training with 60 expected the following year. The shortage of nurses continues to plague the region; we need nurses, so DCC is seeking to train as large a number as facilities permit,” Hair noted. Because the hospital desires to hire locally, nursing scholarships were created. That action will create a direct employment line for the DCC nursing graduates. “We will graduate the best and Danville Regional Medical will hire the best. Beyond the medical needs, when international industry comes to the region, like Swedewood or Essel Propack, we’ll be the college to train employees,” Hair said. Knowing DCC’s growth from three campus buildings to the present multi-building campus, what is the $7 million Major Gifts Campaign’s main focus? “This campaign is not to continue DCC investing in bricks and sticks, glass and concrete. This campaign is for individual students who walk this campus—every dollar will go directly to instruction and student success.” According to Hair, “Every resident personally knows a student, spouse, grandchild, displaced worker, neighbor, unemployed factory worker in need of an education or retraining as a means to find themselves and their places. The slogan “The

| SEPTEMBER 2011 | www.showcasemagazine.com

Power of One” means that we intend to touch one person at a time until every citizen who needs this college is found. “Individuals wanting to invest in ‘The Power of One;’ so we empower every person can choose to give to scholarships, to participate in planned giving, and to provide other forms of financial support to help displaced workers, spouses, and students needing change and direction. Through such support each person can establish a personal legacy, knowing they’ve helped someone, at least one person, move forward in life.

UP

Greetings from the garden (if you can get in it with our high heat and no rain)!

We are joining you this month as a new addition to the ongoing articles and authors you usually find here in Showcase. Our plan over the next few months is to introduce you to a lot of different information, people and perspectives in the world of horticulture in general, and on gardening in our zones, specifically. Let us introduce ourselves. We are a family of gardeners, not originally from the Danville area, but it is here that we developed our love of gardening. Our company, Gardeners Four Generations (www.gardenersfourgenerations.com), consists of myself and my three adult children. We named our company Gardeners Four Generations because we come from a family of gardeners. My grandfather gardened to feed his family of 14, and my father grew fruit trees and vegetables. Our interests range from growing and selling vegetables, to growing ornamentals for our landscapes, to building hardscapes and raising chickens for fresh eggs and meat. We produce monthly podcasts – Garden How To – for Horticulture magazine and have a whole new venture planned with them for an unveiling in the fall. We would love for you to drop in at Horticulture’s website (www.hortmag.com/category/horticulture-radio) and listen to the podcasts when you get a chance. In addition to our work with Horticulture magazine, we received the opportunity more than a year ago to trial new plants and products. We plan to use these articles as a forum to share with you what is new in plant introductions and products. Every year, new plants are being introduced by plant breeders who hold patents on what they have developed. One plant that still amazes me is a new pink blueberry called “Vaccinium Blueberry Pink Lemonade” that was introduced in 2011 from Briggs Nursery in Washington State. Along with introducing you to new plants and products, we also want to make you aware of things going on locally in the horticulture industry.

Vaccinium Blueberry Pink Lemonade For instance, did you know we have a tissue culture lab in our community – The Dan River Plant Propagation Center, which will bring many new plants to the market through our own local growers? Another opportunity in the area is the Southern Virginia Botanical Gardens and Environmental Education Center that is being built in the town of South Boston and Halifax County at Edmunds Park. If you have haven’t heard about them, check out their website www.svbg.org, or have their president, Charley Stallard, speak to your group about the exciting things that are going on there. Drop in while you are in town and see the progress they are making. There is a vast gardening network available, and we want to introduce you to the garden bloggers, authors, garden magazine editors, photographers and owners of small and large companies so you can use them as a resource to learn more about gardening. Some of the authors and books we’ll introduce you to include Lasagna Gardening by Pat Lanza, Square Foot Gardening by Mel Bartholomew and Eat Your Yard by Nan Chase. Did you know there is a movement of gardeners who are window gardening in their city apartment windows all over the country or that there are products that allow city dwellers to grow fresh vegetables vertically on their patio walls or raise chickens in an urban coop on their rooftops? Well there are, and we hope to introduce you to these people and products too so you can see how growing your own food is exploding all over the country. You are always welcome to participate with us by asking questions (g4generations@gmail.com), listening to our podcasts on Horticulture radio and keeping up with our website and what we introduce to you there. We want to be a resource that will point you to the help you need as you face the challenges of gardening.

Working Positive

Entrepeneur, Author, Self-help Coach

Dr. Joey Faucette

by Moriah Davis Photography by Michelle Dalton Photography

| SEPTEMBER 2011 | www.showcasemagazine.com


It seems that when faced

The next step in working positive is to conceive an idea. To make anything possible, a person must surround themselves by other positively-thinking people. In the work place there is always a person which Dr. Faucette describes as an “Eeyore Vampire.” As many people remember from Winnie The Pooh fame, Eeyore was the negative friend always claiming a “woe is me” and pessimistic attitude. When someone in the work place takes on the Eeyore frame of mind it can be very difficult to work with them especially when personally you may be in a “go-get-em” mindset. This pessimistic/optimistic difference in the office will most likely result in pessimism/pessimism.

with opposition many would rather quit trying than to finish the task or goal set before them. Dr. Joey Faucette, local entrepreneur, author, and self-help coach, is a strong advocate of realizing your dreams and then achieving them.

Dr. Joey Faucette’s Inspiration From Within the Community Born in North Carolina, Dr. Faucette grew up with the knowledge of Danville, but it wasn’t until he relocated for a job a little over 12 years ago that he and his family truly grew to love the area. “The people are so friendly here. Whenever you go to a grocery store people smile and speak to you. It just gives off a persona of caring in the community. I have friends who live in bigger areas, and they always tell me I should move into their city, but it’s just not Danville. It’s my family, the people of the area, and the positivity that keeps me here. They inspire me to continuously work positive.” From the time Dr. Faucette was a young boy he learned to focus on and achieve his goals. As an adult the same skill he learned as a child is still with Dr. Faucette. Now, his passion is to help other people realize their full potential and change into the people they want to be. Whether a business, an individual, or a couple, the mission is the same; find out how to become the best you, you can be! This motto is one that is clearly defined in his new book, Work Positive in a Negative World. Dr. Faucette will be the first to tell you of the positive people in the area who give to the community and are shaping Danville into what its future will be for years to come. Any time a community goes through the kind of economic transformation our area has experienced there will be a lot of labor pains. As Dr. Faucette clearly put it, “There is no C-Section for what Danville is trying to do.” Danville is moving from a textile and tobacco industry to one that is more technology driven and embraces the “bright spots.” The good thing is that there are many positive people giving leadership and who aren’t afraid to take charge. These are the people who perceive positive and are focused on making the economic transformation happen within the area.

Working Positive

Few people in the world see

“Without believing in what you are doing there is no way to put the idea out there to anyone else.” Work Positive in a Negative World, endorsed by several New York Times bestsellers, gives insightful concepts to business owners on how to overcome a challenging economy. Dr. Faucette gives three examples of men who were able to not only stay afloat during the Great Depression, but actually become global tycoons. He also shares five practices which he found through studying many businesses and entrepreneurs on how to work and focus positively when it seems everyone else is pessimistic.

Five Core Practices to Work Positive The first step in working positive is one which directly affects the others. Without which there will not be any room to move forward with optimism. Much of a person’s attitude comes from what they perceive. If you focus on the negative aspects of an economy or in another certain area then your business will be directly affected by it. The businesses that seem to grow and expand in times of trouble are the ones that may glance at what’s negative, but don’t make it their focus. If your mind is constantly filled with negativity it will

Taking on parasitic characteristics, “Eeyore Vampires” in an office setting have the ability to drain everything out of you. Not only do they affect performance at work, but they stay attached to your mind when you come home. Thus you aren’t as able to enjoy the time you have away from work, and won’t be refreshed in the coming day. “The best thing to do with an ‘Eeyore Vampire’ is to keep distance from them. Surround yourself with other positive thinkers and you will soon see 1+1=16. There will be no limit to what you can do,” said Faucette. After perceive and conceive you must believe! Without believing in what you are doing there is no way to put the idea or concept out there to anyone else. The believing section of the book helps to suspend disbelief thus engaging imagination into the business. When you are fully engaged in something it then becomes your passion. According to Dr. Faucette, “Once passion has attached to your work you will find your focus and filter perceive positive, then conceive positivity socially with other positive people causing the result to be exponentially positive in results, helping you believe that anything is then possible within the business.” After all of this positivity the next step is one that will be hard to contain, achieve! Many people want three easy ways to achieve positive results, but according to Dr. Faucette those steps are perceive, conceive, and believe. The problem is that once a business has all the internal work in place many fail to follow through on their goal. Most of the hard work has already been put in place they just don’t go and get the harvest from the field. At that point you need to see what fears are holding the company back from going and getting the reward from the effort.

According to Dr. Faucette the thing businesses need to start doing is say “Thank You.”

Finally, the last step, which Dr. Faucette admitted threw him off-guard, is receive. As he put it, “None of us are solo drivers.” We all support one another. Whether it’s the business which contributes a service to the community or the community buying the service from the business, without the one or the other there would be no positive. According the Dr. Faucette the thing businesses need to start doing is say “Thank You!” Say thank you to the customers who support the local business, the suppliers who give the raw materials to finish the project, or even to the employees. This “Thank You” can be said through getting involved in the community. Dr. Faucette found that when businesses give to the community it rewards them in beneficial ways. “It’s almost like squeezing a sponge. They [the businesses] invest in the community which comes back to produce more positive mental energy with the company. Then they lather, rinse, and repeat through the five core positive practices.

It’s like they are squeezing out the excess so they absorb more of the good things in life.” Work Positive in a Negative World is laid out in such a manner which those who don’t or may not adore reading for long periods of time will be able to enjoy. The chapters are broken down into short sections and will keep the reader engaged without overwhelming them. There are even “Call – Out Boxes,” which allow the reader to stop and ponder their work and how to grow a more positive life. Don’t allow yourself to become bogged down with the “Eeyore Vampires” of this world who drain all of your hope and energy. Take a break and thank others who give you the opportunity every day to fulfill your dreams. Never give up when the harvest is about to come. But, most importantly, believe in yourself and your ideas.

Carol Motley, Michelle Anaya, You need to make the decision to take action and eat better.  You will not be successful at eating better unless you truly are SERIOUS Kathy Gauthier, Lee Lightfoot, about making a positive change to your eating habits.  Without first David Thomas, and Scott Bud making a DECISION to begin eating better, all other plans will fall were the contestants who were through the cracks.  You have to be SINCERE in your effort to start able to stick with the program a healthy eating plan.  Here is a three-step plan you can put into action in three weeks!  Take on one step each week and in three and finish! weeks you will feel, look, and move better!

What Types Of Exercise Did the Contest Consist Of?

Three-Step Healthy Eating Plan:

Small Group/Semi-Private Personal Training: These sessions are

Healthy Proteins:

We began this past Spring of 2011 by having each contestant join at least three Semi-Private/Small Group or Virginia Bootcamp Personal Training sessions with me each week. So their total workout time invested with me was not even three hours each week.  On top of that they were assigned a few other cardio sessions on their own two to three times per week for twenty to thirty minutes each of walking, biking, hiking, walk/jogging, etc.

generally in Men’s and Women’s Groups with me and I have done these for almost fourteen years! They are more budget friendly than One-On-One Personal Training with me but clients are in small groups of three to twelve people with each doing a different plan/program. Everyone has different health goals, needs, and trouble areas so I have all of us in a group but each performing different routines.  They are a lot of fun for everyone to socialize, laugh, talk, and at the same time get their workouts in to burn fat and tone-up!

Virginia Bootcamps: The Virginia

Bootcamps are us working out in sync with each other and generally all of us doing the same exercises as a group of ten to forty people! Now if someone has bad knees, a bad back, arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc, then I give alternative exercises for that person to be able to still effectively burn fat and strengthen the body part but without the pain.  Not everyone can do all the exercises or finish it all but it’s okay because the Virginia Bootcamps are full of GREAT people!  Everyone is so supportive and encouraging and we laugh and have a GREAT time all the while shedding fat and losing inches!   What type of Nutrition Plan did the “A New You For the Spring” Showcase Magazine competitors follow?  The following is a nutritional blueprint I developed of what I have all of my One-OnOne Personal Training, Small Group/Semi-Private Personal Training, & Virginia Bootcamp Clients stick to!  You can get more info about this at www.

DISCOVER an exceptional retirement lifestyle that’s remarkably affordable.

Executive Director, Danville Humane Society Two years ago, a friend of mine bought a young, green parakeet from a pet store in Greensboro. She, like most animal activists, usually does not buy animals from pet stores, but she bought this one because he had a badly broken wing. She called me for help, and I agreed to take him. He is a special needs bird, and required a long, low cage with lots of perches to help him maneuver around the cage. I put his cage next to my cockatiels’ cage so he would have some company; however, it became apparent that he was lonely and needed a friend in his cage. April Hogan, our shelter manager, had adopted some parakeets from the shelter a short time before, and she bought a huge cage for them. One of the parakeets she adopted also had a badly-broken wing, and the huge cage was difficult for her to navigate. Birds are like other animals (and like some humans, sad to say) and attack weak, hurt ones of their species. So, April’s little blue parakeet with a broken wing came to live with my little green parakeet with a broken wing. I named the green boy Parley, after Parley Pratt, a man in my church’s history who was steadfast and dedicated, and the blue girl was named Mercy. The two quickly became friends, and looked so cute sitting side by side on the same perch, each with a wing misshapen from the previous injuries. Both of them had been attacked by other birds previously; Parley, by the other ones in the pet store, and Mercy, by the other parakeets in the large cage. However, they both found safety and security in their friendship with each other, and I hope that they are leading happy lives in their cage designed for their special challenges. I do not know any human who is not like Parley and Mercy – broken in some way. Some are broken physically or emotionally, and others are broken socially, financially, or spiritually. I hope that each broken one can find true security and happiness, just as Parley and Mercy did.

Mystification at Its Best!

Misty’s children Jason-19, Corey-11, Spencer-9, Tucker-

by Misty Brooks Photography by Brittany Jones Photography

34 Showcase Magazine

9, and Kendall-7 know all too well the joy and sorrow of being a big family. And new husband Scott is still waiting for the punch line.

Month to month you will find Misty stating the outrageous or ridiculous truths in her day-to-day life, and you will realize that you are not alone in this maniacal concept known as parenting. Yes, welcome to 5150 Lunatic Lane- Where skills and tactics are tried, tested, and often fail. But she keeps doing it anyway!

Happy Birthday Tucker! Mystification At Its Best!

Sometimes I just can’t complete a thought. Sometimes my complete thoughts are one sentence long. And sometimes so many thoughts are running through my mind at once, I have no idea what I’m even thinking about. Today is one of those days. Welcome to my clutter of cognition. Or as I like to call it “Random Thought Alert.” You know how some days you’re just not in the mood to cook so you serve your family a pizza from the freezer? Well, enjoy your pizza... vThe older my children get, the smarter I become. vA butterfly is a beautiful example of patience. vArt is a beautiful expression of life. vPrepare to be unprepared. vI’m not really set in my ways, I’m just not interested in doing it any differently. vBeing a 37-year-old student has been sleep altering. vThere is nothing more reassuring than the sunrise. vWhen all else fails turn the radio up real loud. vIf you can’t remember what you did yesterday, it wasn’t worth it. vMy kids go through shoes faster than the moon orbits the earth. vI can live without a television, but not a pair of tweezers. vDivide and conquer. That is my parenting tactic. vScott has done pretty good at husbandhood, even without previous experience. vGive a kid a squeegee and he will clean windows all day; a toilet brush and he comes down with the flu. | SEPTEMBER 2011 | www.showcasemagazine.com

vI’m a great chameleon, so if ever you don’t like me, it’s your own fault. vUntil you spread your wings, you’ll have to walk. vThe heart doesn’t lie, it just doesn’t always know the truth. vGirls are way louder than boys; boys are sweatier. vI’m becoming more and more conscious of what my kids are eating. They are becoming more and more capable of sneaking food they shouldn’t. vFairy tales are real. They happen one day at a time. vThe only time I forget stuff is when I’m asked about it. vIf someone is really good to you, they can be as equally bad. vPick a path and go. You aren’t supposed to know what’s at the end. vIf children really are our most valuable resource, shouldn’t we feed them better!? vWhat is fair one day is foul the next. vYou can’t always get what you want. You just can’t. vLive like you want to be remembered. vSoy Milk is a lactose intolerant girl’s bff. vI have learned not to invest my emotions into everything and everyone around me. vI want a helicopter. vMy children are well-behaved unless we are in public or have company over. vWhen the going gets tough, just stop. vThe shoes I got married in cost $8.48. vThis year I have only shopped at consignment and thrift stores for my clothes. vI’m in the process, the long and agonizing process of teaching my kids a lesson about gratitude. vI’m learning a lesson about gratitude! vBeing married is like a constant breeze on a sweltering day. vEating healthy may bore you to death, but it won’t kill you!

vI’m a new mommy to the most beautiful kitten in the worldJasmine Cutie Precious PopStar Brooks. vI don’t like bears, especially in my driveway! vLife’s a dance you learn as you go. Sometimes you lead, sometimes you just look stupid. vIf it’s important to you, don’t take it for granted. vMondays are like the gate at an amusement park. You don’t want to wait in line, but you have to get through it to enjoy the rides. vThe smallest things in the life are sometimes the most fulfilling. Unfortunately, they tend to go unnoticed until they are gone. vChocolate Animal crackers are the BEST! (The chocolate comes from cocoa powder which doesn’t contain dairy.) vA day at the beach is like a day that someone else cleaned the house, put away the laundry, picked up the kids from school, and they did their homework alone. vMake sure your loved ones know they are loved ones. vWhen Scott cooks I do the dishes. When I cook I do the dishes. Hmm. vDon’t judge people. Period. And to end on a high note... vI can’t wait for Christmastime! Who’s with me?!
