Willie Nelson and filtering our reading

The big news is my son, David Estill, has a blog.

Early and busy day today. Arrived at Ronson about 7:15 (and it a 45 min drive to get there) and found out my card to the gym does not work that early on Sunday. No problem though - it worked when I tried again at 1. I was inspired by one of my friends who is competing in the Penticton Ironman. I know I do not have time for that kind training right now but that does not mean I cannot be inspired to up my normal training a bit.

Of course my problem is I tend to become over inspired to train and that can lead to injury. I still have a bit of a sore back and sciatica today (on the other had, I ran 5 miles so perhaps I should expect a bit).

Then back to Guelph for tea with my oldest daughter Laura. I do not see her often so that's good. She is preparing to move to Windsor where she will commute to Wayne State to take her PhD.

Then to a Willie Nelson concert in Hamilton tonight. It is his 73rd birthday today. He was still great on stage. Lots of experience. When they introduced him they said how many CDs, songs, etc. and it was amazing. He has accomplished a lot. NOt only that, he uses Biodesiel on his busses. My brother, Lyle Estill, even sold him some.

The warm up group was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. They were just as good.

Awesome evening.

And for those readers who want business advice. My refrain is always filter what you read and make it yours. 2 quotations from Forbes magazine I read today. I will let you guess which I believe:

"Ambition is a poor excuse for not having the sense to be lazy" Milan Kundera

"Education...has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading." G. M. Trevelyan


(hope this does not reduce my blog readership)
