Well, if you live in North America and are in need of a ride to somewhere else in North America, Justin Shattuck might be able to help you. He’s started SummerRideShare.com, an interesting concept that only proves that he’s a truly unique individual with groundbreaking ideas. He’s willing to take anyone anywhere in North America if they’ll pay half the gas and tell him their story.
The concept behind Summer Ride Share is pretty simple! Iâ€™m willing to give YOU a ride to ANY destination within North America, providing we can travel there safely. In an effort to make the ride a little more affordable for everyone and keep the spirit of ride-sharing, I am going to pay for half the gas! Thatâ€™s right, a ride to basically any location within North America in my Yukon XL Denali, accompanied by good oleâ€™ Justin and his antics.
If you need a ride, hit the SummerRideShare website up and get in touch.
Vatican Institutes 10 Commandments of the Road
Tuesday the Vatican instituted new 10 Commandments of the Road.
The Vatican took a break from strictly theological matters Tuesday to issue its own rules of the road, a compendium of do’s and don’ts on the moral aspects of driving and motoring.
A 36-page document called “Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road” contains 10 Commandments covering everything from road rage, respecting pedestrians, keeping a car in good shape and avoiding rude gestures while behind the wheel.
The epitome of a fighter, my dad proved to our entire family that you have to be strong in the face of adversity. When the first round of chemo didn’t do the trick, he didn’t give up. And even after the second, third, and fourth rounds… he never gave up. In his five-year battle he even went face to face with total body irradiation and ultimately bone marrow transplant.
After a long, hard battle with the disease his body was unable to take any illness and with one fail swoop of pneumonia his ability to fight it off was completely gone. He passed away on May 21st of this year.
This Father’s Day was a little more difficult than all others as I could not keep my mind from thinking about my father. All the good times we shared are constantly going through my mind today. And even though I’m grasping for words to express what I feel, I can’t think of anything better to think about.
Love you Pop. I’ll make you proud.
I’ve found a new favorite blog to read. Leo at Zen Habits strives to help people create positive habits in their lives and reap the rewards therein.
This blog is really about setting and achieving goals, and the numerous goals that I want to achieve. But I believe that goals â€” especially ones that are worth reaching â€” are ultimately achieved through the building of good habits.
A "no" uttered from deepest conviction is better andgreater than a "yes" merely uttered to please, or what isworse, to avoid trouble.
