“To Be Or Not To Be? . . .

Happy Hump Day, Y’all!

I am sure some of you noticed by now, but I left you in “peace” on Memorial Day this past Monday.  I kind of slept in as well and got an early start on that day to prepare to go out to the beach for some “sun and fun”!  I even got tickets to see the Heat vs. the Celtics for the play off opener here thanks to my good friend, Armond Hill, assistant coach with Doc Rivers!  It was a nice day to spend with friends, family and loved ones.  May our Armed Forces never be forgotten.

Needless to say, there is a plethora of news stories that have taken place including the so-called drug induced “Zombie Attack” on a causeway there in Miami where a naked man literally ripped pieces of a homeless man’s face with his teeth and growled at a police officer who told him to stop.  So, he was shot three times to his death.  Now, the other extreme if you will, is Mitt Romney’s clenching of the GOP’s candidate to run against Democratic Party and still President of the USA, Barack Obama.  It may turn out to be a “zombie” attack, too, unless Romney can start to talk about his solutions for our nation rather than what he thinks Obama was unable to accomplish.  Of course, the “zombie – like” attack by Romney occurs when he intentionally ignores the accomplishments of our President and seeks to build momentum by inculcating his “blind followers” with rhetoric of where President Obama may have met a challenge or fallen short of his goals.  I hope the “Zombie” does not win . . . Peace be still!

Over the past two weeks, things for me personally have taken a turn for the better after my Night Hawk’s starter system continues to challenge me and my mechanic friends.  So, through the grace of My Creator, and a wonderful friend, I was able to get a 2009 Jeep Compass to help me through the rainy season as well as hopefully allow me to take on more business responsibility with Educational Excellence.  Many of you have been kind upon receiving my e-mails, some of you responding when the feeling hit you, others just reading them – which is fine.  On Monday, I got a call from a long time friend, “Zach”, who not only asked me what my plans were for the day but why I hadn’t sent the e-mail by 9AM!!!  We both chuckled a bit as I explained that we at “EE” were also on vacation!  Silly … ain’t I.

Keep in mind, that these e-mails are “me just being me”!  So again, if you’ve any discomfort either technically because the e-mails I send clutter your inbox, or because my subjects or topics may not be to your liking, just let me know.  Each of you in this e-mail family were carefully chosen based on the parameters of our individual relationships, which vary one to another.  Yet, keep in mind, “I take no hostages” so feel free to send me a reply if you wish to be removed.  In the meantime . . .  “Be yourself, because you are YOU!”   – John Isaac Cook

Peace always,
