A Tribute to Ken Lee

Laughter is the best medicine, and the kind I don't take enough. I love how my kids laugh, and wish I could laugh as heartily as they do. I'm sure life would be more fun if I did. It takes a lot to get me laughing, and this video does it. Let's see if you can watch it without laughing.

If you don't know who Ken Lee is, check out this video.

Ben's Word for 2010

So you know people who pick their word of the year? I've never done it, but this year I will. Thanks to the inspiration from on old friend of mine, I have chosen my word for 2010. Drumstick...oops, Drumroll please (drums rolling.....)


a separate part of a whole; part
a portion of a natural object
a serving that has been cut from a larger portion
nibble: eat intermittently; take small bites of
slice: a share of something

I promise to promote piece and harmony among my fellow men. I will always take the higher road and the extra piece. I will not waste any piece of my food. Thusly, I will become large in stature.
