Congratulations to my sis for taking the steering wheel. Dianna Gail Montgomery has decided to drive the pro seat. LONG OVER DUE. We are part of the Two Rivers Ford team. Hoping to see her make the move to Triton Boats and Mercury Marine as well but one step at a time. Not sure when the last time I seen a women Pro boater in our area but it long over due. CONGRATS sis!! AWSOME supporting husband behind you which I know means the world to ya!! Now please send me your husbands waypoints since he will be competing against you.

“In January of this year

“In January of this year, depressed and horrified by the presidential election, my wife and I attended a meeting for our city’s chapter of a nascent resistance organization whose goal was to slow the new administration’s agenda by putting pressure on local Members of Congress. Before this, I didn’t even know who my House Representative was, a civic deficiency I shared with many other progressives. Even though we had no prior political experience, and no intention of getting deeply involved, within a month we were organizing actions, leading rallies and helping manage a membership of over 2,000 like-minded citizens.”

The difference in my overall look is the point. It’s extremely important to pay attention to the tiniest details when it comes to show dayMakeup, hair, tan, jewelry and obviously suit (@tmariesuits on the far right and THE BEST!! I will never use anyone else) How you present yourself with these things can make the biggest difference. Make up is probably one of the most important to me and making sure it’s flawlesss. Stage makeup is so tricky so if you don’t have someone do it for you-you definitely need to teach yourself how to apply it for the very bright lights. I always use the the same technique as I would for a night out but heavier… you want to enhance your natural beauty by using colors that look good on you(matching your shadow to your suit isn’t always the best idea)

You’ve worked so hard for this day don’t overlook what can set you apart.

When we face these moments of Divine Intervention

When we face these moments of Divine Intervention, fast moving change and transformation, we are not meant to have it all figured out. These moments of radical assistance are a lesson in surrender: Surrendering to our unheard pain, surrendering to the death, surrendering to the illogical, surrendering to the unknown.
Our Human Hearts have a godly potential to hold an infinite amount of love energy. When we activate our human hearts we are expanding our containers. Inevitably we will feel growing pains and a process of grieving will follow.
Even as we walk into our brightest days we are inevitably forced to witness and experience the contrast. The contrast is what creates all that is. The contrast serves as our motivator, our friend. The contrast gives us the route to journey into the Human Heart.

While contacting and negotiating with potential sponsors one thing keeps popping up

While contacting and negotiating with potential sponsors one thing keeps popping up, lack of participation.
In 2015 we had to go with a tiered prize system. The more the entries the better the prizes. We will have to do that again this year. Here is how the tiers are working out so far:
1-8 entries will see a very small cash prize (maybe $25) for first place and that is it.
8-15 entries will see a larger cash prize (maybe $50) and possibly something from Moviestorm for first place only and maybe a small cash prize for 2nd but doubtful.
15-35 entries will receive decent prizes for first and second place and a small cash prize for 3rd.
35+ entries will see the good prizes and possibly up to 5 places. 4 places for 35-40. 5 places for 40+.
Not sure how the script writing category will be dealt with yet.
We were lucky in the past to be able to offer great prizes no matter what but sponsors want to see results. Unless we can get max participation, sponsors will not be returning which means the Passion Competition will become just like Lionhead, a thing of the past.

“Age of Anger” by Pankaj Mishra is a very interesting read and the best I’ve come across in explaining both the rapid global rise of right

“Age of Anger” by Pankaj Mishra is a very interesting read and the best I’ve come across in explaining both the rapid global rise of right-wing populists and the seemingly never ending spate of terrorist attacks that we have seen in recent years. Spoiler: both phenomena have a lot more in common than proponents on each side would like to admit.
The book argues that because most analysis takes on each episode in isolation, or by a superficial stitching together (i.e. European racism! Islam!) they largely ignore the deeper factors at play. Citing to numerous historical and present day examples – from Europe, America, Russia, the Middle East and India – the author persuasively posits that as the world has advanced, those unable to enjoy post-enlightenment promises of freedom, equality, and prosperity have historically always been increasingly susceptible to demagogues and anarchistic/nihilistic takes on the world. Those left behind have historically reacted in horrifyingly similar ways, including an intense hatred of invented enemies, attempts to re-create an imaginary golden age, and self-empowerment through spectacular violence.
The author makes many interesting comparisons throughout the book, citing example after example of the demagogues and terrorists’ own works and theories to show how similar their calls have been over the centuries, and does a good job placing our modern predicament firmly within a historical context that demystifies the problem and hopefully offers some solutions to those who may actually be looking for them. Definitely worth a read.

Jesus Christ replaces the darkness with light

Jesus Christ replaces the darkness with light. He replaces the ignorance and erroneous thinking about God with the truth. In fact he claimed: I am the truth [John 14:6]. This is an absolute claim. Jesus is not saying that he is one source of truth among many. He is not saying that he is part of the truth. He is the truth – not relative, not qualified, not conditional. He is the truth. If we do not find truth here we will not find it anywhere. If we believe we have found the truth, but we have not found it in Jesus Christ, then the truth we think we have found is not the truth at all. Jesus Christ defines the truth. Anything additional, anything alongside, is at the worst a lie, and at best a watered-down, wishy-washy corruption of the truth, and therefore error.
