Honduras? Where Is That Anyway?

Ever heard of WGO?  Do you know Fred Steinbach?  Anyone know how to spell Tegucigalpa?  (I confess, I had to look it up).

A little over 10 years ago, I could not have answered yes to any of the questions above.  Actually, I did know Fred.  After a couple of years of Fred twisting arm just …

The Measure of Greatness - Serving Others

How do you measure or define greatness?  When I read the news, listen to talk shows, or browse through other types of media, I see how the world defines greatness.  I would agree with Rick Warren’s observation that he made not too long ago:

Let's Celebrate Life by Walking: CareNet Walk for Life 2017

When my wife, Amy, and I were expecting our first child, we had a friend who was the head nurse at a fertility clinic. She offered for us to come over anytime we wanted for a free ultrasound.  So we did, and I bet we went at least once a month.  We got to watch our son, Johnny grow from a flutter …
