When I'm in a slump, I comfort myself by saying if I believe in dinosaurs, then somewhere, they must be believing in me. And if they believe in me, then I can believe in me. Then I bust out.

I think we're all over winter, right? It is about time, given that April is almost over.
With some of the better days recently, I've been doing a bit of cruising with the windows down. This especially excites my kids because not only do they like the windows down, but their especially excited about the "new" car we just acquired. It's a 2005 Toyota Corolla, so it's more exciting to a kid than it is to anyone else. But, hey, it runs.
In doing this cruising, I've had to break out one of my favorite driving albums — Dusty Rhodes and the River Band's eponymous 2010 swan song.
Just pop in the CD and the first track "All One," gets you fired up — from the opening flourish to the drums kicking in and the guitar taking over. And then the vocals kick in with the mission statement of the album and song: "It's time to shine!"
So, I hope the weather (which has taken a slight downturn this week) will take a lesson. It is time to shine. Let's do this.
