I’ve seen a lot of negativity on LinkedIn regarding posts about LBGT friendly businesses. While one business posts about being diverse on LinkedIn, many of the comments are a mix of either applauding or criticizing their post.  Trying to play “catch up” on emails and messages yesterday, I had a rather long message from Stephen … [Read more…]

Public Speaking, Party Planning & Religious Ceremonies...My Role As An Officiant Or Celebrant At Events...

I’ts well known that most of my life I’ve been a public speaker.

Texas Prison Weddings- TDCJ Estes Unit To TDCJ Stiles Unit...With A Bit Of Family Drama? 

Two weeks ago, I picked up my Estes Bride and drove to Estes Unit in Venus, Texas.

When you are a twin, you have a built in best friend.  My sister and I see each other daily and believe it or not, love spending time together.  For traditional siblings this might sound odd but twins have a unique relationship that has been studied for generations.   Like many twins, we have different … [Read more…]

A few years ago, I wrote a blog titled Cindyism for the holidays with my twin sisters Redneck Reality Advice for other family members during the Christmas Season.  Cindy can put a hilarious spin on being the “Naughty or Nice Guy,” because she just doesn’t “give a hoot” about making everyone else happy and has … [Read more…]

Getting into our kids “business” is a regular occurence for The Pawning Planners because let’s face it we are fairly nosy and often opinionated regarding our kids, grandkids, cousins and even our clients on occasion.   Apparently, my sister and I are always “poking our noses” into our kids lives according to them but- we … [Read more…]

Returning home from our trip to California last week, Cindy and I are still “catching up” on sleep and chores along with our yearlong committment to lose 40 lbs each by “This Time Next Year.”  Our first morning home, we “hit the scales” since let’s face it, we weren’t exactly dieting on our trip expecting … [Read more…]
