Philosophy, personal choices and responsibility

"One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes… and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility."

Get My Thyroid Fixed.....

Get My Thyroid Fixed  is born and launched today.

Durham/Raleigh Trip

A successful and well received talk at the Bennett Place historic site started the long weekend in Durham/Raleigh and Apex, NC.

Visited with Madison after her dance practice on Saturday and ate at a local Thai Restaurant close to where Mic had his Ultimate Tournament.  Then spend the rest of the day watching Mic enjoy his time at NC State's Miller Field with teams from around the USA participating in this Ultimate Frisbee tournament.

M&M are sure growing up fast....

Boy those kids grew up fast!  Remember when?

1st day of High School....

Mic on the field with his Coach (#14... apparently a semi-professional Ultimate Player just back from World Games)

another Michael... this one is a senior at Jordan and co-Captain.  After a minor injury... I did step in to evaluate his ankle and administer some basic 1st-aid.

Special thanks to Cindy and Michael Goulding... for hanging out with us over the 3 day trip and putting us up in their wonderful Condo.

Dr. Saleeby presents at historic Bennett Place on Adv. in Surgery and Medicine during the Am. Civil War

A decent crowd showed up from the Durham Civil War Round Table.... the director of the historic site at Bennett Place and the park ranger and Jane Eno (the president of the group) were all in attendance. 

After a very nice introduction... I presented over 70-slides from my PowerPoint presentation to an appreciative audience.  Cindy and Sharon were also in attendance.

Watched with great anticipation as this place went up literally overnight.  Parking lot was packed since day one.  Can understand why.  The Food is really good.  Simple menu and daily side specials.  They kept it simple and very tasty.  The owner who prances around and among the patrons is a personable and dynamic fellow and that all lends well to this BBQ "shack" or "joint" place.  Their first week open, the place ran like a well oiled machine... why?  Cuz it is a chain... some 30+ "joints" operating throughout the USA.  Many in Alabama and Colorado and in the Carolinas.

This small chain started up by Three Boys from Alabama in 2001 grew to what it is now.

Crazy about their BBQ and will be back hopefully to face smaller crowds at the counter.  Not too into the sweet sauces, but more a fan of the mustard or vinegar based and will have to ask for that offering next time I'm in.

SaleebScore:  Service (walk up, but they deliver your food to table): 7/10,    Food: (for BBQ): 8/10,     Value:  10/10...

Move over Starbucks....

Not sure why Starbucks coffee has taken off in the country as it has... personally I think they over-roast their beans and perk it too strong.  I think it is a good replacement for Mobile1 motor oil, but that aside, they need to make room for...

... Cafe Du Monde is currently our favorite coffee at the Saleeby household, with a hint of chicory nut, it make for a good morning.  Followed by a close second.... Dunkin Donuts Coffee blend.

Work Play weekend in LBurg, NC

We took the opportunity to visit Mom & Dad celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary and also to hang with Cindy & Michael who were visiting Laurinburg as well.

Before we played, we emptied out both our overfilled storage units and packed everything into a U-Haul to take back to the beach.  Lots of stuff over our combined 100+ years that we need to go thru... YUCK.

Anyway on a ligher note... A wonderful celebration with lots and lots of specialty Lebanese dished for dinner.  Cindy and I cooked up a storm of Kefta, Kabobs of beef and lamb, Majudarah, Lebanese styled boiled chicken in allspice, and Mighley for dessert.

OMG! Who is that Geek in the Jr. High School picture.

Stockbridge Junior High School c.1980 @ the Georgia State Capital Building.  JP is 2nd row far left with glasses and dark blue tie and jacket.  Mr. Covington (Science Teacher) is 3rd from L (2nd row) with eyes closed/brown jacket.  Next to our Principal in the dark blue blazer.  Mr. Covington was a retiree from the US AirForce and was instrumental in getting me interested in the sciences.  I still have some of his extra-credit Coupons.
