Do members of a Toastmasters club sit around, drink champagne, and make toasts? NO! However when I first heard of Toastmasters 35 years ago that is what I envisioned. It was not until I attended my 1st meet this year that I found out what really goes on at those Toastmaster meetings. I hope you will listen in and learn to today's Radio Broadcast and/or podcast and see if Toastmasters maybe something that interests you.
My best friend Jerry Kaup shares how he makes his road trips more enjoyable. Jerry does a lot of traveling and he will go out of his way if he reads a good dinning review. Much to my surprise these off the beaten path excursions are seldom expensive and according to Jerry they are always delicious. I think you will enjoy hearing of his experiences and how he has always been satisfied with the results of his research.
Wiring is one of those things you want to "get right" in your home.Most people are wise enough to let the professionals do the electrical work but there are some do-it-yourselfers who are daring enough to do their own electrical work as well. That's fine... as long as you let the City Electrical Inspector take a look. John O. French is an electrical inspector for the City of Minot and he wants to help you get it right as well. He would be happy to take a look at your plan and let you know what will and won't work. Everybody wants a safe home, especially John.
