We have launched our Clunkers4Charity fundraiser! If you know of anyone (yourself included) who wants or needs to donate a car for tax purposes, send them to our website…and to the Clunkers4Charity “Link” you see at the right side of this page. Funds we raise will go right into the community for our projects.











President Roy found a good one this week in his own travels around the Internet. This TEDx Talk, by Olympic athlete and time expert John Coyle, challenges us with some interesting ideas.

We predict this video will go by very quickly as you watch it, and you’ll understand why we say so.

If the embedded video does not work, please click here to view it on this TEDx page; it is the first of the two on the page.

  1. Thank you, Roy, for finding such a fantastic TEDx Talk. Some of my favorite quotes regarding time came to mind while listening to this.

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” ~Steve Jobs
    “Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.” ~Dolly Parton
    “Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.” ~Wayne Dyer

  2. I always think of music. Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way…

  3. Too often we allow the enjoyable moments in life to rush by without allowing ourselves to live them without concern about time. Thank you for a challenging program.
