The Power Based Life

Okay, okay, I admit it. I did not finish reading the entire book. I actually got it for my wife after reading the synopsis and deciding it sounded like something that might put a little wind back in her sails...and it worked! Well, sort of, she hasn't quite finished the book yet either, but she does tell how inspirational she finds it any time she has picked it up.

I started reading it for a bit, but like so many other things in life I heard distraction calling and off I went. What I did read was good, practical advice. I think my favorite part of the book, keeping in mind that I've probably only finished 25% of it so far, was when Flynt pointed out that instead of being great at everything it's important to focus on your strongest area and move forward there.

If you're looking to set some goals or put a 5 year plan in motion, then this book is for you. If you want to make sure you can get where you're going, then this book is for you. If you need a little encouragement, a Father's Day gift for a buddy or cousin, or a graduation guessed it!

Rocket Club

Hey y'all, coming at you from MN way once again here! Just wanted to share a newer group on the country scene with any of you who haven't heard about them yet. Go check out Rocket Club first chance you get. If you're not blown away then I really ain't sure what would do it for you at all.

Even though they only have the 2 singles up, search around You Tube briefly and you'll easily find a rendition of the National Anthem that should move you and a catchy little ballad (see left) that gets you feeling good on memories.

One of my personal favorite points for this group, other than I just think they are so genuinely diverse, is that MN own are all over the place in this group. Including Chris Hawkey of KFAN fame. (Well, he is up here anyway...)

And seeing as how it's June now, please get out on those lakes and have some fun!
