SnowLet it snow, Let it snow
Wednesday we had a snowfall of 10 inches and it was still snowing, 12 inches when it finally stopped.

My Mentor for many years was a wonderful man named Herb True, Ph.D.  and Herb was becoming bald. He used to point to his balding head and say to audiences, "Now this might not look like a lot of hair to you but in a salad this is a lot of hair."  Likewise, to folks in Michigan or Minnesota 12 plus inches is not a lot of snow but to a fellow without a snow shovel in North Carolina at the bottom of a big steep hill, twelve inches looks like a mountain.

Here on Friday the sun is shining and we have temperatures expected to reach 48 degrees, and by Sunday to reach 61 degrees.  So I am now singing the hit song from that great Broadway Musical Gypsy, "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

Say Something Good
Fifteen years. That is how long our just named Piedmont Poet Laureate Nancy Peacock has been holding her Saturday Morning Writer's Meetings. I counted 43 attendees recently and it was a lively, interesting meeting that I am certain really touched the lives of some of those attendees just as it had me so many times in the very early days of her meetings. Unlike many writer's meetings Nancy provides prompts and attendees sit and write, using a prompt for inspiration, for fifteen minutes. Then some writers are chosen to read their results. It is inspiring to hear what some writers can accomplish in just fifteen minutes. Creativity abounds in these sessions. Some young authors receive their first public response to their work and it is thrilling to see a young writer suddenly heaped with genuine praise for it.  Fresh, new, blessings of awesome creativity were literally bouncing off the walls at that meeting and I left the session that day determined to write something important in the days to come. Nancy does this as a labor of love to help others.

May God Bless America and bring us world peace.

Points to Ponder
Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. Miguel Angel Ruiz

A Little Humor
Sign in a pharmacy window. For the girl who has everything. Penicillin.

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. Melody Beattie

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad

John H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western RailroadJohn H. Burdakin and the Grand Trunk Western Railroad provides a look at the principles and personal values that guided John H. Burdakin through a long, successful career as a top manager at three railroads—the Pennsylvania, the Penn Central, and finally the Grand Trunk Western, where he was president of the regional carrier from 1974 to 1986. The book, written from interviews with Burdakin before his death in 2014, gives real-life examples of how Burdakin’s management principles and personal qualities helped him solve labor- management problems, update railroad technology, protect worker safety, and improve employee morale while managing a four thousand–person workforce. It introduces colorful characters who were involved in American railroads, as well as the serious, life-threatening issues that confronted railroads in the last half of the twentieth century in America. This book will provide insights for managers of any business as well as for those seeking to balance a successful career and a rewarding home life.

He excels at his assignment as a soldier and a spy. As the war in Europe heats up, he realizes that he has made a huge error- he has made friends and become a part of the army that he is helping to destroy. When the time comes, he is uncertain if he will betray his country or his friends. When treachery is your mission, where do your loyalties lie?

The Santa Train by Art Fettig [Kindle]
The Christmas Train by Art FettigOnce upon a time, there was a worn out locomotive that nobody seemed to care about. Except maybe Charlie Weller, who was an old retired railroad engineer. And maybe nobody cared about old Charlie anymore either. At least it often seemed that way to Charlie. He had little to do but sit around and remember the good old days when he would run that ancient train up and down the tracks hauling freight.
