XXXI: Good Things End


All good things must come to an end…

Somebody once upon a time in history said that quote, and it seemed wise to use in today’s reality. It’s Friday, and for the first time in three weeks we have zero plans for the weekend. We’ve traveled the Midwest, gone to a night club, celebrated our anniversary, and just about everything else you can imagine in the past fourteen days. Continue reading

…these are days that you’ll cherish for years to come…

It was Mother’s Day, just a few hours ago.
Mother’s Day was a good day in the Daugherty household.

The day was spent enjoying KC Strip steaks, potatoes, iced tea, and family. I spent the afternoon with MC signing her up for social media courses through Digital Royalty, and ensured that she was able to actually tweet on Twitter.

The late afternoon brought more laughs, Pepsi, and a trip to the local flower farm down the road from my parents house. The evening finished up with harvesting some home grown lettuce, kale, and mustard plants for salads this week. It was windy, warm, and overall a perfect day.

Everyone got along. The food was fantastic. I was even able to slip in to steal a photo for the memory pages of life:

MC and myself next to a pond and flowers on Mother's Day 2014.

That’s a pretty good day in my book; I hope it was even better for MC.

XO: Grand Adventures


I’m assuming that everyone has the notion at one time or another in life that they’re going to do something great, they’re going to be on some amazing adventure, you know…they’re going to change the world.

I know at least that teachers think it when they enter their first year in the classroom.

…that was a partial joke… Continue reading

Mobile Minutes: @ALOdrink #ALOVE Action


Darco and I are running in 5K’s tomorrow and Sunday throughout Missouri and Kansas; naturally I’m having a problem falling asleep.

Cool story for today:

At one point I made note of this small event where my mug was featured on Facebook by a company named ALO drink. What I didn’t know at the time was that, that was just the beginning.

Last month I found this flyer posted on Facebook by the same company:

That is my face that wound up on their flyer. The true power of a "#selfie".

That is my face that wound up on their flyer. The true power of a “#selfie”.

As you can see; again my ugly mug is in full view. This was the ALO drink #ALOVE contest that’s currently running on Facebook and Twitter. Because they used my photo they felt it necessary to contact me, just to say thanks. However, it quickly turned into learning that they were shipping me a case of all of their products. All seventeen products. I enjoy ALO drink because it’s high in potassium, it’s GMO-free, and it is great at re-hydrating you after a long run or workout. It keeps me from cramping up, and trust me that’s a good thing. It’s a product that I’d openly endorse.

My phone rang tonight and it was Jim; notifying me that a 21 pound box had shown up at their doorstep today. Tonight I stopped by to pick it up, and wouldn’t you know it…it was a sampler pack of beverages from the guys at ALO drink.

The bag matches my eyes so well.

I’m pretty pumped; not just because I have coconut water running out of my ears [something that never happens], but because it’s been a fun relationship that’s been established with this company out of California.

Yes, this is also all part of a new project that’s currently under construction within our household as well.

You can follow ALO drink on Twitter as well as Facebook.
