Day 4 – 365 Days of Thanksgiving Challenge

It’s the 4th day of my 365 day Thanksgiving challenge.  After another long day in the office, this was an easy one for me to think of.  My wife is very supportive of my career and professional life.  Without that support, it would make my workday difficult. Continue reading

It’s the 3rd day of my 365 day Thanksgiving challenge.  This one came to me as I was sitting in church listening to our pastor give his weekly homily. Continue reading

Day 2 – 365 Days of Thanksgiving Challenge

It’s the 2nd day of my 365 day Thanksgiving challenge.  It would be too easy to say thanks for the UNLV win over North Carolina in basketball or the USC win over UCLA in football as both schools are my alma mater.  However, that’s not the spirit of this challenge.  I want it to be more than that.

I don’t know, there is something about getting information from a source that is dependent upon the accuracy of the public to update and maintain the integrity of the information that bothers me.  I have met many people who have found discrepancies on the site.  Since I don’t use the site very often, I don’t know of any discrepancies off the top of my head that I can point out.

So, I am curious if you find Wikipedia to be a trusted source of information.  Would love to hear your feedback.
