Golden shower

Two stars collided showering the universe with particles of gold and platinum and other heavy metals. Although the event happened 130 million years ago (and 130 million light years away) astronomers on earth were able to hear and see the collision a couple of months ago on Aug. 17, according to reports released Monday. Praze to the glorious universe and a humble bow to the great minds that are able to comprehend anything so vast

Fire friends

Let's hear it for firefighters from 17 states, Canada and Australia who are heading to California to fight a deadly wildfire. Never enough praze for  the men and women who risk their lives for others.

Praze the Energy

The parking lot at my gym is packed.  The senior strength class is overflowing. Every tennis court is taken.The enthusiasm and energy in the air is electric. Thank God for healthy days, for that spark of energy that takes us to gyms and gets us out walking. Let's channel that energy into good works.

Lend a hand

Praise to the 275 union workers who volunteered to go to Puerto Rico and help that hurricane-ravaged island. Pilots, nurses, teamsters...all sorts of workers gave what they know best: their experience, their talents, their time. In the end it's always the workers who get 'er done.

The glorious ping

After being without cell service for weeks some people in Puerto Rico recently heard that welcome ping of text messages coming through after Vanu Inc. installed some emergency cell towers. The New York company partnered with a satellite dish company to set up the connection and voila! Cell phones pinging all around! Praise to great minds willing  to share great work.

Good News from the NFL

Pulling my Praze Craze blog out of mothballs to highlight the good news I find emerging from the bad. Like this video interview with NFL commissioner Roger Goodall. Sounds like the NFL has been doing a lot more than taking a knee. They've been working with players and communities to better understand the problems and solutions to racial injustice and they are on the verge of announcing their next play.

Praze the last days of summer

Somebody must have sent out a memo that summer is almost over because the normally quiet lake behind my condo was buzzing with people this evening. Kids were jumping off a dock and swimming with their dogs. A young couple was fishing in a little red fishing boat while an older couple putzed around in a little pontoon boat. A couple condos down, a family and their guests were gathered around a fire pit roasting marshmallows. And I was swinging in my hammock enjoying it all. Earlier I had taken my kayak for a spin. I love my little lake and I love seeing so many people enjoying it.
