Episode Reminder: Moho House

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s almost Sunday and the Simpsons are back this week with an all new episode!

So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode of The Simpsons, this Sunday, May 7th, on FOX….Moho House

So what do The Simpsons have in store for us this week?  Here’s the episode information released from FOX:

“Homer and Marge attempt to work on their marriage, not knowing that Mr. Burns and Nigel have a bet on whether Nigel can break them apart. With the successful, albeit unconventional, help of Moe, the couple gets back their mojo.

So FOX didn’t put out any sneak peek YouTube videos this week, so here’s the preview they did offer:

Be sure to tune in tomorrow night to see all the fun!

As always after the episode airs we’ll have a full episode recap!

Are you excited for the new Episode?  What do you think will happen in the new episode? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Friday Filler – Tapping Less and Enjoying It More

Ah...Thank Grog It’s Firday!

This was a running joke that my kids and I had when they were all in college, and admitted that around campus, “the weekend” actually started on Thursdays…or to be specific, Wednesday nights, when a famous U of O bar ( Taylor’s Tavern literally 22 feet off of campus)  had “Dollar Beer Night.”  Don’t get me wrong…my kids were all great students, who all graduated with honors, but they also knew how to pace their work, and get the most out of their play.

And who was I to argue?  They all graduated Summa, or Magna Cum Laude, while I joke that I was ” In Cum Plete” as I never finished my degree after my football, musical career, and partying got in the way.  My kids are WAY better at balancing work and fun than I was.  I was “All In” or “All Out.” And was usually too “Grogged” to know it was Friday…(hence the  Firday joke).

But, I have improved in my old age.  I have learned that doing LOTS of things well, requires balance. And if something becomes obsessive after the “learning curve,” you need to adjust. Rather than do one thing obsessively, which tends to narrow one’s life, I now choose to “Live Wide.”

That has now become the standard for how I Tap. It’s the reverse of what happens when you are truly addicted and obsessed. Remember the old joke, “I”m smoking more, but enjoying it less?”  If you don’t, it’s because the guy who coined that phrase croaked, due to lung cancer. But, for me, living wide requires me to, TAP LESS, to Enjoy it More….

Here’s what I mean.
