Today I want to focus on serving others and following the amazing example of Clara who is away at MDA camp. This made me think on how much better the world would be if we just put others first!

This week Clara was inducted into the Little Chute chapter of the National Honor Society. I am so proud of her amazing accomplishment. I started thinking about the 4 pillars of the NHS, Character, Leadership, Scholarship and Service and how each of the kids shares these qualities.

Madeline, Tommy, Emma and Drew, like their sister Clara all posses similar qualities. I love you all and Congrats again Clara!

TommyLog – Strong Work Ethic

Ok kids, for today’s TommyLog I want to first congratulate Clara on getting her first job. How exciting is that?!?! I could nto be more proud of her and her accomplishments. I actually am very proud of all my kids and everything they have accomplished.

When I was 12 years old I got a job a a newspaper carrier for the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle early morning newspaper. With the exception of a time while a freshman at college and my full time mission, I have been gainfully employed ever since.

Which leads me to talk about strong work ethic and how blessed I am that Clifford kids have such a great work ethic.

TommyLog TECH – Verizon 4G LTE Rocks #VZWBuzz

So as I try to fit the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 into my digital lifestyle, one of the features that I immediately found I’m falling in love with the most is the mobile hotspot. Verizon 4G LTE is simply amazing!  An example of this was a trip I took to western Wisconsin last week. My daughter Clara was in the state dance competition in La Crosse Wisconsin. The drive from Appleton La Crosse is three hours. I used my Galaxy Note 3 as my Wi-Fi hotspot for the entire trip. About 45 minutes into the trip, my AT&T signal dropped off. I had no service. Zip, zero, nada! Not true with Verizon 4G LTE. It worked all the way through. Both my son Tommy and my son Drew were streaming Netflix and YouTube the whole way.

For those of you who are interested, six hours worth of Netflix and YouTube streaming is about 8 GB worth of data. The more you know! ☺   While I was at the local Buffalo Wild Wings, I happened to run a speed test on the network. I got over 65 Mb download speed — WOW!! The network speed on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is totally “Tommy Approved”!!
