The roost is full at Cam’s house. And on this week’s Keepin’ It Real, Cam shares that it may never be this way ever again. —– My wife and I had thought our summer would be quiet and a bit boring. Two of our four children would be living away and the other two would be at home but either working during the day, away at camp for a few weeks, or playing sports. Plans changed, though, and they’re all back home for the summer. Our house is packed. The roost is full. Our four kids are between the ages… Read More

Am I My Brother’s Dog’s Keeper?

Posted On June 21, 2024

On this week’s Keepin It Real, Cam is having a harder and harder time walking his dog due to his neighbor’s dog that won’t go away. —– “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain asked this of God after his brother Abel went missing and God asked Cain, “Hey. Where’s Abel?” Cain claimed he didn’t know. Cain had killed Abel, by the way, and was trying to hide it.

On this week’s Keepin’ It Real, Cam is board so he’s thinking about paddling across the Pacific. Or planting a few ferns. —– I’m bored. And that’s a problem. Somethings been nagging at me for a few weeks and I now know what it is – I’m bored. There’s little adventure in my world right now. Very little discovery. And when boredom sets in get panicky and a bit rash. Too often, I over compensate. This morning I spent way too much time on the Molokai to Oahu web page. It’s a 32 mile stand up paddleboard race from the… Read More

Tenaska Takes Greenhouse Gasses from Plant Emissions and Safely Buries it 10k Feet Underground

Posted On June 10, 2024

Tenaska has created a method for capturing the greenhouse gasses emited from industrial sites and pushing it through pipelines to a hub where it is injected 10,000 feet under ground. The diposal site must have a top layer of impermeable rock and the CO2 ultimately turns into an inert stone. The process requires a significant investment and Tenaska (the biggest privately held company you’ve never heard of) has what it takes. Tenaska rep Brett Estep leads me through how it works.

On this week’s Keepin It Real, Cam says we know we’re all busy, very busy, but are we doing what it takes to flourish? —– What does it take for a human to flourish?

The guest pointed out that, in his opinion, everything being promoted as valuable in our Western society today is detrimental to human flourishing. What is being promoted, he said, actually leads to loneliness. And he might be right. So,… Read More
