Finally! A Drink With Natural Essence

Thank you La Croix. Finally! A drink with natural essence! Finally, a drink whose essence is naturally harvested from real fruit-flavor. This is very important news for anyone who has any idea what "essence" even is. Oh, how many times I have cursed my beverage's unnatural essence. Yes, it tastes great, but at what cost?! For so many years, essence has been harvested unnaturally. So often it's treated no better than animals, raised inhumanely, in some small cage, never to enjoy the light of day.  But, thanks to the brave efforts of La Croix, those dark days are done. Gone is the barbaric era ...

The Weird Dreams We Have: David and the Angry Terrier

Weird Dreams: I have this weird dream I’d like to confess. I love dogs and after having to give away our dog a few years ago, I’d eventually love to own another. But, because of all the downsides of dog ownership, like actually having to care for the dog, I’m not pushing to purchase one anytime soon. But, I have this dream. I’m pulling in my driveway and a dog randomly walks up to me, kind of like God is specifically sending me a dog. I take it home and it turns out to be the best dog ever! It ...

What is Thorne Inc.?….from my weird family to yours: part 1

What is Thorne Inc.? I'm working on a Master's degree in Leadership and Management. As I consider the different ways to make use of all  the things I'm learning, one ever-present source of application is my family. I noticed that  over the years I've worked very hard applying leadership principles and skills to my work-related goals. But, so often, the people I love more than anyone else receive only my leadership leftovers. Two months ago I began asking the question, "What if I treated my family like a company and began applying all the best leadership principles I'm learning to them?" ...

Stuff My Kids Say #3

I've continued collecting some of the things my kids say. Kids may drive us crazy sometimes, but there is no question they keep life interesting. For perspective: Caleb- Age 8  Logan- Age 5 Micah- Age 2  Dad- Hard to say Wife- Ageless 1.We want our kids to know they're smart, talented, good-looking and loved. So, at dinner one night I was joking around and said about Jess:  David (to Jess):  You're smart, talented, pretty, loved....and you have the best husband in the world. Caleb: You're not the best husband in the world. You are the 50th best husband. David: What? Who ...
