One of the great things about Honey-do is he cannot stand to pay anyone for something he can do himself. And he really cannot stand to call anyone to do something if he has not gone at it to see if he can do it first. It has been a blessing and a curse over the years, so you can imagine how thrilled I am that today it was a blessing! It was a savings of $399 because Honey-do was able to fix the washer.
One thing that I truly appreciate about Honey-do is he is educated and skilled. He grew up with parents who lived by the adage, Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Over the years my Honey-do has saved us thousands of dollars because of his ability and desire to learn how to build and fix things.
That leads me to Mike Rowe and MikeRoweWorks.com (that now switches you over to profoundlydisconneted.com).
“The mikeroweWORKS Foundation started the Profoundly Disconnected® campaign to challenge the absurd belief that a four-year degree is the only path to success. The Skills Gap is here, and if we don’t close it, it’ll swallow us all. Which is a long way of saying, we could use your help… “
Rewatching the Mike Rowe conversation on The Best of Beck at TheBlaze.com really made me thankful for the gifts and talents of Honey-do, and for his love for the principle of work.
Here is the link to the story about the Rowe/Beck conversation from October 23, 2013:

Yesterday’s Part 1 post. Today I pick up commenting on items 9-15 on my Congressman’s survey.
9. Local, state and federal leaders should work with LOCAL BUSINESS AND PROPERTY OWNERS to find solutions that protect the Indian River Lagoon.
10. NASA should be tasked with a bold new mission for human space flight but it ought not be taxpayer funding of private enterprise or cultural outreach.
11. I have no clue what this statement means so ask that you explain it or rephrase it: The federal government should create a more competitive regulatory environment to encourage commercial space
12. Redirecting education dollars to the states to allow School Choice is a great idea and so is abolishing the Department of Education. Let states expand vocational and technical education as they see fit. Let the market in each state drive the need.
13. Yes to canceling billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and instead of thinking ‘where can we spend,’ think about how you cannot spend it.
14. Expand no. Reduce and Simplify yes. Reduce and Simplify policy so Veterans have choices to get the help they need without Bureaucratic interference or mandates. Clean up the Veterans Administration, where expanded spending has done very little to help our troops and has become it’s own bureaucratic nightmare.
15. Pass a FLAT tax and make Government run on a budget. Get rid of excessive and redundant entitlements and lift the restrictions on American energy.
Remember: Opportunity for All. Favoritism to None.
Oh, and one more thing, Mr. Posey. Be #SassyWithMassie and vote #HellNo on #AHCA tomorrow.
