Yakima’s New Anti-Gang Center Under Attack – Dave Responds

The conventional wisdom says, "Dave, shut up and let them have their say."  Me? Conventional?  Not happening.  My belief is that when people go out of their way to say something that is misleading, wrong or ridiculous they need to be challenged so that others won't take it as truth by a lack of opposition.

Members of the community and the Yakima City Council have spent a great deal of time and energy preparing for the Yakima Youth and Family Development center Grand Opening held Tuesday night.  There was an excellent turnout, plenty of media coverage and an article in the YHR that only drew two comments so far.  Both are critical, and that's ok, but both are wrong and both authors know better.

I'm no Gandolf, but this shall not pass!

The Best Lessons Begin Early for Cash and Kids : Dave’s Diary

I wish I was Dave Ramsey’s nephew.  Then all those family holiday dinners could have been spent learning at the feet of the master of money.  Money Management is one of my weakest links.  When I was raised, we were self-taught and tight-lipped about money matters. Not anymore.

Dave’s Diary: Cat’s Got My Tongue And My Life

We have a cat. No, they have a cat…my wife and daughter.  She (cat, not wife) is old and getting senile but she still rules the house.  I have tried. I play the allergy card, the hairball and germs card…even the “suck the life out of our daughter while she sleeps card” but to no avail.  The wife says she’s known the cat longer than me.  And now this!

Knights Cook Breakfast on Behalf of Camp Prime Time

They call it the “best breakfast in town” but it’s as much about the people you’ll meet as it is the meat you’ll eat!  In addition to delicious food cooked for you, great conversation and a chance to meet new friends.

Dave’s Diary: Beautiful Women More Likely to Give Birth to Daughters

AH yes I remember it well…The trip to the doctor for the ultra sound to determine the sex of our baby.  The excitement, the speculation, the search for boy & girl names when all along, the answer to the question  “what are you having” was as plain as the nose on my wife’s beautiful face!  Allow me to explain why I could have/should have stopped my name search at Katelyn (my 4-yr old tornado)

Scientists say beautiful women are more likely to have baby girls than their …er…um…”less beautiful” counterparts.
