The Kitchen Drawer

If I find something interesting or have a passion for it, I throw it in this drawer – like your Kitchen drawer, there probably is some junk which you will never use , that’s OK…..

1 Mission, where we build homes and hope for families in Mexico/Latin America

Paso De Amor (Steps of Love), where I try and maintain an orphanage filled with the greatest niño’s you have ever seen.

207 Miles,  My son Ian’s passion , a yearly 207 mile bicycle ride from Phoenix to Puerto Peñasco, Mexico to raise money for homes in the barrios of Latin America – last year they raised over $65K US.

Countries Lee has Travelled to

Earthquake Monitoring, they happen every day……lots of them

CCV (Christ Church of the Valley) where I worship and usher every weekend

Cato Institute      The Cato Institute seeks to broaden the parameters of public policy debate to allow consideration of the traditional American principles of limited government, individual liberty, free markets and peace. Toward that goal, the Institute strives to achieve greater involvement of the intelligent, concerned lay public in questions of policy and the proper role of government.

Organ Donor Site: Are you an Organ Donor? In the US, 47,000 people are waiting for a Kidney transplant and every 14 minutes a new name is added. 3046 people died last year waiting on a transplant that never happened. This is a great site that explains how you can become a donor – the best thing is to tell your family your wishes. A live organ donor (my Wife!) saved my life!

i6Eight: Friends  Scott & Shannon Swartzentruber help run this ministry to the barrios of Puerto Penasco, Mexico.

Colorado Rockies and the Denver Broncos – the only teams I track and watch.

EconLife, very interesting articles with an Economic bent – also, many more examples of unintended consequences for me to highlight.

 

 

 

In Memory of my best friend of over 23 years, Walt Sharp,  25 Sept 1947 – 4 March 2004   I will always cherish the time we had together – we enjoyed traveling together, good food, good books and a discussion on about any subject. Walt’s favorite poem was The Man From Snowy River  (Banjo Patterson) which he had memorized and would occasionally recite for friends.
