Eagles and Pigeons

Eagles and Pigeons will be an on-going blog project for our collective amusement. It is dedicated to both the movers and shakers as well as the losers and bakers. of this planet.

I was listening to a Podcast a few months ago, and this guy was talking about how he was becoming more successful because he "was spending more time with Eagles and less time with Pigeons." The comment has stuck in my brain ever since.

It's interesting how a Pigeon will ask "Why?" and an Eagle asks "Why Not?" Pigeons are problem causers, Eagles problem solvers. Eagles seek to attain new heights, Pigeons tend to crap on others. I don't like pigeons.

So on the right hand side of my blog, I am going to share some of the eagles and some of the pigeons that I have met. Should be fun.

Welcome To My Blog

You just can't fix stupid. That phrase is actually posted on our refrigerator, a constant reminder to be better than, well, better than stupid. So it was with some trepidation that I started this blog. If you have ever met me, you are probably aware that I often offer up unsolicited flippant remarks. My wife is constantly following me around, apologizing to everyone in my wake "He really didn't mean that you know..."

So the idea that my random thoughts and musings could be posted on the Internet for ever and ever frightens me. Certainly the FBI could read this and figure out where I am hiding if I ever chose to embezzle money from a multi billion dollar empire and then flee to 1212 Hugo Chavez Blvd. Cabo, Mexico. Attorneys will certainly roll out my blog to show the jury that I am indeed, insane. And a future employer could actually read my Blog and find out that yes, I am rude, crude and in the mood. I've decided that it's a risk I am willing to take.

So sit back and enjoy some time in the fun zone. As you read along, think of how popular you will be with your friends when I announce my candidacy for President of The United States. You'll have a whole blog of stuff to blackmail me with!
