COVID-19 Personal Update

It’s a strange time and I hope everyone is doing what they need to do to be safe. Linda, Chris and I are all doing well. Adjusting to staying home (I’m still going into the office but I don’t know how long that will last. Since I’m only 5 minutes away and we have some agents who can’t work from home, I’m there helping out) most of the time. Linda and I are making a list of things we want to do once this is over. One important item is to see more of our DFW friends in person over a good meal and beverages.

For those of you not in the DFW area, let’s figure out a way to catch up via the podcast or just to chat.


For now, remember life is a journey and these are better days. Stay safe, be healthy and Keep Hope Alive!

This is your Sword, this is your Shield

There are some dark times out in the world. People are afraid, they are frustrated, they are angry. I get it. But remember we are in this together. Remember the words from the man himself, This is the power of love revealed. We will get through this, together. I love you all!

Brothers and sisters listen to me
These are the few things that I leave to thee
This sword of our fathers with lessons hard taught
This shield strong and sturdy from battles well fought

This is your sword, this is your shield
This is the power of love revealed
Carry them with you wherever you go
And give all the love that you have in your soul

The times they are dark, darkness covers the earth
But this world’s filled with the beauty of God’s work
Hold tight to your promise, stay righteous, stay strong
For the days of miracles will come along

This is your sword, this is your shield
This is the power of love revealed
Carry it with you wherever you go
And give all the love that you have in your soul

In the days of despair you can grow hard
Till you close your mind and empty your heart
If you find yourself staring in the abyss
Hold tight to your loved ones and remember this

This shield will protect your sacred heart
This sword will defend from what comes in the dark
Should you grow weary on the battlefield
Do not despair our love is real

This is your sword, this is your shield
This is the power of love revealed
Carry it with you wherever you go
And give all the love that you have in your soul
And give all the love that you have in your soul

March Madness

It’s a new Month and we are starting to see signs of Spring. I hope everyone is staying safe and taking the appropriate precautions against the coronavirus. I need each of you to stay safe, we need all the goodness we can find in this world.

On a less serious note, here is my monthly request for feedback. I love doing the podcast but at times it feels like I’m in a vacuum. Please email (setlustingbruce@gmail.com) or tweet your thoughts on episodes after you listen to them. Please go to what ever podcast player you use to listen to the show and leave a review/rating. On iTunes I currently have 71 ratings and 43 reviews. The last review posted was back in October 2019. I’d love to see my ratings to get to over 100 and over 50 reviews.

Listener’s Choices for Mount Rushmore of Rock n’ Roll

As we mentioned on the podcast, we reached out to our listeners about their choices for the Rock n’ Roll Mount Rushmore
Here are the top 5 vote getters for the individual category.
Bruce Springsteen 16
Elvis Presley 9
Bob Dylan 8
Elton John 7
Chuck Berry 6

Here are the top 6 (we had two groups tied for 5th)
Beatles 10
Rolling Stones 7
Beach Boys 4
Led Zeppelin 4
E Street Band 3
Fleetwood Mac 3

The E Street Band would have placed higher but I counted anything that said Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band as a vote for Bruce.

Job Search 2020 Update!

I was given a verbal offer on Friday and on Tuesday (1/28/20), I was sent the official offer letter. Pending drug test and background check (which won’t be a problem) I will be the new Contact Center Director for Coach-Net starting on February 10th. This is a great company with an outstanding team. There are so many wonderful things about the role and I’m excited about the new challenge. One of the nicest things about the new gig, it’s less than 3 miles from my house! Everyone, please know that I appreciate your kind words, good thoughts, and encouragement. The new year may have started off rocky but it is quickly shaping up to be a great one. Now we just need to hear about a new album and tour dates! #jobsearch2020

Thank you to everyone for your kind words and encouragement. You made this latest bump in the road much easier because of your love and support. https://setlustingbruce.libsyn.com/job-search-2020-update
