What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

I thought I was original.  Not quite, though.  On Saturday, the Boise State Broncos play the University of Connecticut Huskies at Albertson’s Stadium.  It’s a late game.  Kickoff isn’t until 8:15pm. I generally refer to the team as “Connecticut”.  A lot of other people call it “UConn”.  I’m not a huge fan of nicknames, cliches…MORE

BRONCO SEASON IS BACK… WITH ALL THE ALLITERATION!

BRONCO SEASON IS BACK… WITH ALL THE ALLITERATION!

Look!  It’s football season, and I’m blogging again.  It’s almost as if I wait for football to start and do little else the rest of the year.  Not so.  I do watch baseball. Anyway, game one for the Boise State Broncos this season is similar to last year’s opener, in that it’s the same opponent.…MORE

Memorial Day thoughts

Memorial Day thoughts

Last night, my son graduated from Capital High School.  That’s why my in-laws are in town.  Two came to Boise from Warrenton, Virginia, and two from Fairfax, Virginia.  Both towns are just minutes from Washington, DC. I recommend that every American visit Washington, DC if it’s within your means to do so.  See the Capitol,…MORE

What Mom Taught Me

What Mom Taught Me

Mother’s Day is this Sunday.  The most important thing my mother ever taught me was how to censor myself.  I don’t mean that she told me not to swear.  She did, I’m sure, but it wasn’t a subject that came up very often.  We weren’t a swearing family.  Swearing was something that some people did…MORE

Effective Multi-tasking

I’ve multi-tasked my entire life.  I never thought of it that way, but technically that’s what I do.  Despite what doctors recommend, I’ve always read myself to sleep.  When I was a kid, probably from age two to eighteen, my mother would check on me before she went to bed, and every night, she would…MORE

Worthington BLOG: Doorbell Ditch Karma

Blog: Doorbell Ditch Karma by Rick Worthington   Forgive me, please. You see, I was a good kid for the most part, but I did doorbell ditch houses for fun a few times. Not many times, but I did it. Not familiar with the art of the Doorbell Ditch? It works like this… Step 1:…

Do we really want the government to tell us how much profit we are allowed to make?

Do we really want the government to tell us how much profit we are allowed to make?

That’s exactly what would happen, if new legislation proposed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez passes.  Bernie and AOC announced new legislation to cap credit card interest rates at 15%. It’s a move they say is designed to “help protect consumers from the greed of the credit card and banking industries.”     A better…

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

Let me clarify. This idea does not stop bullying, fix mental health issues, address pharmaceutical issues, increase morality, solve the never ending adolescent issues of hormones, heartbreak, jealousy or self- confidence. It only solves one issue. It also does not solve the issue of crimes that may occur in parking lots, sidewalks, movie theaters, night…

It’s that time of year again, graduation and graduation parties, Memorial Day, family reunions and picnics. I’ve received some requests over the past few weeks for my super simple pulled pork recipe, so I thought I’d post it for everyone’s enjoyment.  It’s really easy, relatively inexpensive, it tastes amazing and as a bonus it easily…
