  1. How about turning your blog into a book with Lulu like I did? ($20 a copy if you’re as verbose as I am; you’re not, so yours would be cheaper!) I actually sold three copies after giving 15 away.

  2. This brings back a positive memory about your children and Yoda!

    People who use the word “try” a lot usually don’ t accomplish much.

    YODA WAS RIGHT: “There is no try. Only do, and do not.”

  3. Absolutely, you are right. I don’t think I ever put that story on the Blog. But I’m getting old and forgetful. I may have to put it up as a post one day.

  4. thought of your children — the ‘there is no try’ guys??

    This is a guest post from my wife, and features a story I’ve come to look forward to updating every summer: the tale of two entrepreneurial girls.

    Last weekend I explored Portland’s beautiful Eastmoreland neighborhood during its annual 140-family garage sale. In the past, I’ve come away with major bargains, but this year I had to be content with enjoying the first day of summer with a couple of friends. We admired the homes, gardens, and assorted cast-offs of the well-to-do.
