March Madness and Martinsville, that is why I like spring. Well, I like the warmer weather too, but
Martinsville is on my mind at the moment.
The smell of brakes and the racing fuel. A whole field of cars inches apart on a half-mile track, where anything can happen. Beating up fenders and small margin for error. Yes, that is Martinsville and the first NASCAR race there of 2014 comes this Sunday.
As the indoor archery season winds up, the team traveled to the US Indoor Nationals and JOAD Nationals February 22 and 23. We are still waiting for the final national compilation of results from all of the sites. However, in the JOAD nationals at the Georgia site, Rachel Roberson earned a bronze medal following her Georgia state championship the previous weekend. Phil Burney came in 4th in his division, and Rick Burney 5th.

What do you see?
A friend told me a story about listening to life with his grandson. They sat together, eating M&Ms. After a handful or so, the little guy started staring at one of the candies.
“What do you see?” the grandfather asked.
“Well, I see an M,” the boy said. He turned the candy slowly around about a quarter of a turn.
“Now I see a 3,” he said, and turned the candy again.
“And there’s a W,” he said, turning the candy.
“And look! There’s an E,” he told his grandfather. “And that’s all,” he said, and popped the candy in his mouth.
Amazing, isn’t it, what you can see when you just change your perspective a little bit. As little as a quarter turn in your viewpoint can open up a whole new world for you, can’t it?
Whatever you’re looking at in your life, turn it over and see it from an unfamiliar perspective. Discover a whole new way to live positive!

Another turkey season has arrived and even though I’m excited about the possibilities, I’m reminded again of my distaste for the characteristics of this bird. Yes he’s beautiful. Yes he’s hardy. And yes he’s a wily competitor. But his best contribution is his shining example of all that I don’t want to be and all that I detest in seeing in others as well. His pride is evident and that ought to be enough to make me want to blow his head off, but there are other problems I have with him as well. One of them is his constant concern that others think of him to be something that he’s not.
