Buddy's Blog: Trent Taylor: he really could be next Welker

in
Davis, Ok 2015.jpg

Observations, our two cents (maybe five) worth, quotes and the usual “ Sunday Shorts” on this Sunday morning in the sports world:
• Another “white guy” comparison for Trent Taylor.
Not that he minds.
Because the “white guy” he’s being mentioned in the same paragraph — again — is Wes Welker, arguably the best slot receiver in NFL history.
Is it any coincidence that Taylor, out of Louisiana Tech University, has been called the best slot receiver in college football for 2016?

A look at under-utilized gems in parish

in
070917 MILITARY MUSEUM C.jpg

It sometimes amazes me how some things are taken for granted. You know they’re there; you drive by them every day but you’re headed somewhere else and it never crosses your mind to stop by.
Lincoln Parish is home to at least two of those entities that we know are there but most of us fail to visit.
Lincoln Parish Park is located in the beautiful tree-studded hills just north of Ruston. Granted, the local community is generally supporting this mecca in the pines but if you check license plates of visitors to the park, most are from other states.

Question: I get so overwhelmed every time I start to do my financial planning. It isn’t that I don’t know what to do. I just have so much to do! I make a long list and just get overwhelmed. Where do I start?

Job No. 1 is to slow down and chill out. The more wound up you get about all that you have to do, the less you’ll actually get done.
You say you’ve got a list of financial planning things you need to do. Great.
