      As for me, I’ve been through undergrad, law school, marriage, two kids, one house, four moves, a traeger smoker, and passage of the bar.

      Holy s**t. That’s a lot of crap.

      Finished grad school, started working from home, turned 40, moved to St George, built a house, had cataract surgery, two of my kids are now adults, one moved out and is now pregnant with our first grandchild, and I got to watch Utah go to the PAC12, win a division title, and beat BYU 7 times in a row (so far).

      Life is good!

        You gotta take a break once in a while. Too much of that and you’ll go blind.

          Too old. Funny story, met up with an old flame. Beautiful young woman who worked for a client. I lusted after her for a couple of years, 15 years ago when she was 22 and I was 42. Kept it to myself, age inappropriate and all. Ran into her randomly, serendipity. She looked fantastic (I don’t). She asked me out. We ended up playing house for a couple months until I got bored. I get bored easily.

      Man, a lot. I was in school in 2009. 

      Since then: built up a business that was doing amazing. Started another. Brought on a friend to help with growth. Found out friend was more a “friend”. Went from the top to next to nothing. Moved around looking for my next shot. Built myself back up. Had two kids. Tried to buy utefans.net and I had it…then monkey passed and about six months of work disappeared.  

      The last 8 years have been nuts. I’ve lived a lot of lifetimes. 

      Two kids, four states, insane swings in income. 

      From top of the world to the bottom back to…well, not top, but not a bad place either.

      I used to spend all my time on UFN. Now I spend all my time on Da Hub. So I guess it’s changed a little. 😀

      A lot has happened since then.  But, most imprtantly – went from one grandchild to 8 wonderful grandkids.  

      Have had the opportunity to travel a lot with my wife.  We have been to Europe four times since 2009 including England, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Italy, Germany, Malta, Greece, Norway and the Vatican.  Wonderful trips with a ton of history.  We have also travleed many times to the Caribbean and in the US including Hawaii and Alaska.  On my bucket list is New Zealand and Tahiti.  I want to travel while my health is still good enough to do so.  I have a genetic eye issue which will cause me to be blind within five or so years.

      I’m now retired from working for a paycheck and doing volunteer work which I really enjoy.  LIfe is good!
