I'm a "kid under construction.
Interests: My number one interest is my relationship to my God and how I reflect his love to others, especially my family--my wife, my kids, their spouses, my grandchildren-both born and unborn, my friends and others I come into contact with. I am also interested in effective personal and organizational communication. A third area of interest is narrowing down my to-do list with the rest of my life to the things that are truly important. I want to make the most of the time God will give me.

Bill--I really appreciate the comments. My mom--Frieda--was truly a God-given world changer for me. If you click on the link in this post and go to the David Brooks column, you will see another link to some serious research about why dads abandon their families. The reasons my dad did what he did always eluded me. I always thought that my father ranked pretty high in the criminal class because of what he did. From my preliminary reading of the research summary, I see some reasons why a guy would do something this hurtful for his spouse and kids. It was hard for me to not take what he did personally. I felt the sting from that thinking for most of my life. I just never talked about it. My dad wasn't right in what he did. He was very wrong. But this research sheds light on a very serious problem in this country. Wes

Sue-- Great question. We were pretty much in a similar situation. However, in the year before we listed it, we made an intentional effort to really become familiar with the condo market, including Delta Township. When we accepted the offer for our old house, we knew exactly what was available and we knew what we wanted. Somehow, it all worked. Give me a shout on FB Messenger if I can help more. Wes

So anything written in the New York Times is wrong and part of the effort to defeat Trump? What about all their stories about the Wikileaks in the past week unfavorable to Clinton. Those wrong too?

Dave, It's really good to hear from you. I think you can point to a whole line of presidents who had girlfriends on the side. What about Dwight Eisenhower? Thomas Jefferson who impregnated a slave? What about Bill Clinton having sex in the Oval Office. There were others, I'm sure. Does that excuse Trump and the vast body of evidence about how he regards women? In my mind, it's a question of morality and character. His regard for women is an indicator of his regard for both. What would honor God? Trump? I think our country is in trouble, big trouble. Like the children of Israel, we have thumbed our nose at God and have failed to repent. I don't think it will really matter who becomes president. God has to be angry and I'm sure the election of Trump will do nothing to lessen that. What's the answer? Sounds like you might be holding your nose when you make your selection. Wes
