Trying to take a break from politics but it won't leave me alone

Brian LilleyArchive

I tried to take a break this week at a lake but the politics won't leave me alone.

That's okay. I'm getting in some fishing and canoeing and am surrounded by interesting people.

In addition to taking a look at political scandals, I also speak to a mother of 10 about what it is like to raise a family so big in a society that seems to value smaller families. And I speak to a priest that looks like he stepped out of another era but who runs his life and much of his ministry off of an iPad. How to find balance in a digital age.

Dan. You lost me. How is now deceased blues singer, Amy Winehouse’s song “Rehab” an ad for anything?

Love your gun ad. I don’t keep a gun but I carry pepper spray in town, bear spray in the woods, keep a heavy flashlight by the door and keep a really big dog.

That back-country priest sure was an interesting fellow. Maybe you could do a regular thing with him, something longer, maybe with spiritual questions from the audience. And that mother of ten was certainly well spoken and – is there a word for ‘intelligence hardened with experience’?

I hate ads!
I don’t even see them any more on the internet – training and discipline – and since I don’t have TV, listen to the radio, read newspapers, magazines or any book from the NY Times bestsellers list, I mostly don’t see ads.
For some reason I clicked on your link…and watched it…all the way through…did I mention I hate ads?
So I offer this ad just for you…enjoy.
Oh and number ten – I live it!

Brian, glad to hear you are relaxing with some loons. But seriously, dude, that’s one mean politics addiction you got going.
