I was introduced to social networking by a number of friends and associates who for the first time this year convinced me it would be well worth my investment of time to become involved in online social networking.
It took some convincing but I finally made the investment, first on LinkedIn and Plaxo, and most recently Facebook and MySpace.
I’ve had great experiences on LinkedIn and have enjoyed the interaction with colleagues and opportunities to connect and re-connect with people, the opportunities to connect people, and a pleasant surprise has been the numerous opportunities I’ve had to help people with various requests.

Our annual week of summer camp is in the books and what a fantastic time we had in the mountains.
I had the pleasure of serving as the counselor for the K-2 boys again this summer and we had a great cabin of kids who were a lot of fun. It was non-stop activities all week long.
I really enjoy seeing a collection of kids from various backgrounds and experiences come together in a summer camp setting in the mountains where they’re dropped off by their parents, away from their families all week long, and the kids quickly learn to count on one another for support and guidance.

Each July my daughter and I head to camp for one week. It started out as an opportunity for us to spend quality time together one summer and now is an annual “daddy daughter” event we look forward to each summer.
This will be the second year I’ll serve as a counselor for the K-2nd grade boys, and for some, that may seem to be a daunting task or not the ideal way to spend a week at camp. For me, however, it’s a lot of fun, very rewarding, and an opportunity to positive impact youth.
In so many ways, each of those boys positively impacts me as well.
Look for my camp experience recap later this month.
