Hello visitor! I wanted to let you know that I’ve moved. It’s kind of like moving your house but in a digital way. I’ve moved all my content from the three blogs I’ve written from (starting back in October of 2009) over to http://drewrieder.com

You’ll like my new home. It’s cool and there’s lots of room to wiggle around and create stuff. I’m just getting started.

So come visit me here and you’ll see that I’m stepping up my game a bit for you. I’ll continue to post fun and interesting info always with a personal approach. Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing you at http://drewrieder.com

Peace….drew 🙂


So, I’m stuck here in the Spokane Airport waiting to go to Vegas for a work trip. The perilous fog has engulfed our fair Lilac city. So I’ve found myself with ample time to ponder the greater mysteries of the universe. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

1. Airport food is marginal and overpriced.
2. Starbucks is a God-send.
3. People packed into small spaces behave strangely.
4. I find it humorous and comforting that humanity hasn’t figured out a way to overcome fog.
5. My I-phone is neat.
6. Apple hasn’t created an APP for fog dissipation yet.
7. In three minutes I’m pretty sure the Southwest staff will all have nervous breakdowns.
8. If you stare at airport terminal carpet too long you will start to hallucinate.
9. Without mobile devices there would be rioting and biting-after which time we would rediscover the English language and start talking to each other.
10. Citizens who feel they’ve been made to wait too long believe that they should file lawsuits against the airlines for “pain and suffering.”
11. These are immutable facts of the universe.

These are the thoughts I’ve been able to muster whilst molding my rear to this decorative row of hard terminal seats.

Final thought. Remember to smile and laugh. It’s nearly impossible to be stressed when you do.

You are beautiful and you are loved and you matter. Thanks for reading…drew 🙂

One of my favorite passages about love and relationships from the Bible is Ecclesiastes 4: 7-12. It speaks to the reality that most often and for many reasons two are better than one. Read and enjoy and think about the ones you love.

7 Again I saw something meaningless under the sun:

8 There was a man all alone;
he had neither son nor brother.
There was no end to his toil,
yet his eyes were not content with his wealth.
“For whom am I toiling,” he asked,
“and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?”
This too is meaningless—
a miserable business!

9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:

10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.

But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!

11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?

12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Though life can sometimes be hard, you are never alone. God is present always–the third strand of the cord and the One that holds it all together. Reflect upon the words in these verses and give thanks for the special people in your life. We can’t do this alone. Keep your hands open. Two are better than one!

Two are better than one!
