One of my favorite things to do is to sit around a table or in someone’s living room and just visit.
After we had our first son, Conley, we wanted to show him off, so we visited a lot of our family and friends, and it was not unusual for us to spend a couple hours at someone’s home talking about kids, life, work, etc.
I hear my elders talk about “the good old days” when congregating on the front porch on a Sunday afternoon was a routine experience. It’s easy to say life gets in the way, or we just don’t have enough time to visit anymore. I know, though, that there are plenty of times when I sit at my house and watch TV when I could be spending time with loved ones.
Just like everything else, it usually is not whether we have the time, but whether we take the time to visit. I think I will set a goal for myself to be sure to make time to visit more often with my family and friends.

The Football Forecast contest may be over this year, but the college football season still has a ways to go. This weekend features several conference championship games and a few notable regular season games.
First, the best of the conference championships:
ACC: Virgina Tech vs. Boston College — BC beat Va. Tech 14-10 in the regular season, scoring both touchdowns in the final three minutes. The Hokies looked impressive against Virginia last week and I like them to get revenge on the Eagles.
SEC: Tennessee vs. LSU — I like LSU to bounce back from their loss to Arkansas and beat the Volunteers.
Big 12: Oklahoma vs. Missouri — I’ve been impressed with Missouri’s offense all season. Oklahoma beat Missouri in a close game in the regular season. I pick the Tigers to even the score on Saturday.
Most of the regular season games are traditional rivalries.
Army vs. Navy — Perhaps the most storied of all the rivalries in college football. It doesn’t matter that neither team has been much of a factor on the national stage for years or that neither has contended for a national championship in decades, the game is still one of the great events of the college football season. Navy has dominated the series in recent years and that trend should continue this year.
USC vs. UCLA — One of my favorite rivalries in all of college football. The Bruins shocked SC last year and prevented the Trojans from playing for the national championship. USC will avenge that loss, bigtime.
Cal at Stanford — Cal has been one of the biggest disappointments in college football this year. The Bears started 5-0, but have lost five of their last six. Stanford is only 3-8, but they pulled off the biggest upset of the season when they beat USC. Still, I gotta go with the Bears in this one.
For the record, I went 9-6 in the final week of the Football Forecast. My final season tally was 133-38.
