So the wife and I have recently decided to make some changes in our lives to better ourselves and our children. It all began with our decision, and some help from a good friend at EcoBuns, to try out cloth diapers with our daughter Lola who will be here around September 1st of this year. We are very excited about our new adventure and if you didn’t know, I will be documenting my journey in a segment called “Diaper Wars”. This is the first stage of an eye opening experience.
The second stage involves a 10 day pledge that my wife recently stumbled upon. This pledge involves 10 days full of eating real food and cutting out processed foods, which includes refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. When my wife sent me the link I did what any other man would do and skimmed through it. I guess you could say it was the equivalent of a man actually asking for directions to a specific location when he is obviously lost. Yeah, I was being stubborn. I told her to go for it since she seemed so dedicated and I was willing to try it. I had already decided to cut out pop so why not try this?
Our 10 day pledge toward eating “real food” starts today and so far it has been great. I have gone without pop since this past Thursday and though it was hard the first couple days at work, I’m feeling good and my stomach has not been hurting. I’m going to miss it but if I feel better then it’s worth it. McDonald’s and all other fast food joints will no longer get my business and although that too sucks I will feel better in the long run. So here it is, the two stages to a better life and health. I’m digging it and maybe you will too. Below is the link to the pledge and no there is no money that you are actually pledging. It gives an explanation of the pledge, recipes, and other items. The family that did this did it for 100 days but 10 days is enough for me…for now.

Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This will be the last episode in a series recorded at the 2015 Indiana NENA/APCO conference and expo a few weeks ago. I had a great time there and I hope everyone who was on the show or attended my class enjoyed it too. I met a lot of new people, visited with good friends and just had an all around good time. There is never a dull moment with the crew from Indiana.
In this episode I got the chance to speak with Lindsey, dispatcher with Fulton County 911 and her mom Lori, training coordinator with INdigital and former PSAP director. This episode was a lot of fun to record. It was the first time that I have ever had a mother/daughter episode and they hit one out of the park.
This is a must listen so check it out and share. As always if you have any questions or would like to be a guest on the show, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

On October 8th, 2011 I wrote on the Jabber Log Fan page that I was thinking about recruiting some writers. I mentioned that I have a lot of stories to tell but that I felt I needed to expand. Well folks, it’s time to add some extra writers. I feel I have been doing a great job but I want to venture into something more. So far I have gathered an excellent group of writers to fill the need for posts on movies, music, books, video games, and technology. I’m still looking for a few more writers so if you are interested please shoot me an email at email@example.com. Also if you have any suggestions on topics to focus on please don’t hesitate to let me know. I have a lot of ideas swirling around in my head and I want to use Jabber Log as a platform to accomplish different goals.
One big thing I would like to do is help promote local events by doing a piece on them right before the event in order to generate a buzz. I believe all those involved can benefit from a little exposure and who knows what can happen from all of this. I will continue to post the way I normally do but now there will be added posts with new and fresh material. Every Wednesday there will be a new post on music from The Phoenix Philosopher, Thursday’s will focus on video games and technology, and Friday’s will feature movies. The first Tuesday of every month will feature an up and coming musician for “New Artist Tuesday”. I previously posted that it’s time to Occupy the Airwaves in order to get new music played on the radio minus the corporate backing. Who knows if it can work but it never hurts to try. In the end with new topics and added writers I feel that this will bring in more readers and continue the popularity that has followed this blog. I have posted many times that there is more to come and this statement is solid. I am very excited for the new things coming from everyone associated with Jabber Log and I thank you for everything. Happy reading my fellow Jabber Loggers. Cheers!Post Views: 337
