(Ron) When you go down to the rodeo, there’s folks that you see as part of the show. They’re a vital part of the rodeo’s plan: I speak of the bullfighters and the barrel man. They wear a painted smile and a goofy hat, suspenders and floppy pants at that. Their humor makes you smile. It’s not deadpan, those funny-lookin’ bullfighters and the barrel man. But when it’s time for the rough stock events, it’s them down inside the arena fence. If a rider’s hung up or a cowboy’s in a jam, he’ll get saved by the bullfighters and the barrel man. Those bullfighters put their lives on the line, to buy a downed cowboy some precious time. They’re praised by the cowboys and loved by the fans, those professional bullfighters and the barrel man. Comedian and athlete, rolled into one, They help the cowboys as part of the fun. If they can’t dodge a bull, then no one can. I speak of the bullfighters and the barrel man. So let’s salute this brave hero who displays his skills at the rodeo. Thanks for protecting cowboys since rodeo began:
Those brave bullfighters and the barrel man. Happy Trails.

  4. I just want to say I am just beginner to blogging and truly loved your web site. Probably I’m going to bookmark your blog . You definitely have really good articles and reviews. Thanks a bunch for sharing your web site.

    • Thanks for sharing. The interview with these 4 young disciples was exciting. And the really cool thing is, these are just 4 of the youth that gathered — 4 of the 60 leaders that came together to talk about faith, life in the church, leadership, call and diphlpiescis. What a blessing to have them in Nebraska and to have them as leaders in the ELCA. We are blessed. I would love to hear more from this group about their passions, yearnings, hopes, dreams and faith!

  5. The presence of the Mets bullpen in this game is good news indeed.So I guess our fear that this new kid might have been another, shall we say, Ricky Nolasco proved unfounded.

  6. Thanks. Yes sure the terms are overlapping. Active listening for example is mirroring primarily. It involves the feelings. Paraphrasing steps deeper. It scrutinizes the meaning behind. Both is dedicated to synchronize communication and understanding. Precise listening goes still more deeper. This is not just to secure correct understanding but also reflecting the validity of information. So it is not just giving feedback but scrutinizing the logic behind. So it is synchronizing thinking and mind also.

  7. Good point. I hadn’t thought about it quite that way. 🙂
