I've been bad...

Wow...I can't believe it has been since April I have written anything.  Guess maybe I have been busy...but that is no excuse.  So, I am going to try very hard to write more on what is happening in general.  My thoughts, what is happening and how I feel about some things...

So first upon my list is the fact I am not happy with the health insurance industry.  Especially in filling perscription drugs.  So here is the latest, I have a script for a med and of course, the insurance company will not approve the name brand the doctor wrote, but if they do, they want me to pay an outragious co pay.  Unacceptable, so I take the generic substitute and guess what, it is an inferior product, but I am held hostage now by the insurance company.   And they say they have our best interests at heart.    

Now here's another kicker...I just found out the insurance companies are limiting the amount of Viagra, Cialis, or Levetra you may get within a month regardless of what the doctors persripction says.  So, in my mind it appears the insurance company is now limiting the number of times you may play within a month for those that really need it.  Give me a break, now we have people scrutinzing our personal sex lives...OMG. 

So the time change is here and getting darker earlier.  Man does that make me tired quicker in the evening.   I just get used to a routine and then have to change and get used to another.  OK, that is enough for today, but will try to be back tomorrow.  Have a good one !

Life is like a roller coaster...

it has its ups and downs, it goes so fast at times you think you are loosing control, and then slows down so you can catch your breath, and then comes to a stop...but the thrill of it all makes you want to get back on and do it all again...

So here I am in Oklahoma with a great new exciting job with many challenges already presented to me and you don't know which way to go at times.  But you look at it like a fruit tree, you reach and pick the low hanging fruit first and handle those projects and get them out of the way, and then start reaching for the tougher and more difficult ones, the new tasks at hand.  Before you know it, your basket starts filling up with the accomplishments you have made and you can see your efforts paying off. 

It's an exciting time at Fort Sill Apache Casino with a new 3.5 Star hotel under construction scheduled to be unveiled in just alittle over 90 days.  I have an incredible staff that is more than willing to make their contributions and just need guidance.  And for those of you who know me, this is my passion.  Working with people, mentoring and showing them the paths and opportunities ahead of them.  Working together to achieve the goals of the organization.  It is an exciting time and I am privileged to be a part of it all, seeing the accomplishments we can make together as a team.

Lawton is a most unique town with the Army base here.  Soldiers everywhere and if you can imagine any chain restaurant, it is here.  But they only have one Starbucks...ummm...what's that about?  So my culinary experiences so far have been Outback, Red Lobster, Sonic, and then throw in a couple local places, Sunshine Omelets, Gerts, Mike's, and Meers in the Wichita Mountains.  Not alot of unique dining choices, but you go with the flow and take what the city has to offer.  Or, which I have done on a few occasions, you cook for yourself.  And even then, sometimes you don't always know what you're getting. 

Exploring the local terrain is always fun, looking and finding what is out there so you don't miss anything and taking it all in.  Life is too short and you don't want to miss out on anything, so just go  for it and enjoy what it has to offer.  That's what I am doing and relishing the time spent in returning to the city and when the family comes down.  Sharing those experiences and enjoying life as it comes. 

So until next post, I am enjoying my experiences and looking forward to new ones with family and good friends, both old and new.  As they help make it all worth while...
