One man's advice to his son:

"Hard work wins. You get out of life what you put into it. You can't control the outcome, but you are 100% in control of the effort. And before blaming other people, go to the nearest mirror and ask yourself, 'what could I have done to change the outcome?' "

- Larry Elder quoting his Dad Randolph Elder (as told in PragerU video, "Black Fathers Matter")

"Comply Now. Contest After."
(Eric Broyles - Author of Encounters with Police: A Black Man's Guide to Survival)

This should be our first thought (I call it "first-frame thinking") when confronted by the Police on ANYTHING. Not complying with an officer's orders can only end in negative consequences ... and certainly could be fatal.

I don't believe you'll hear much about this man's passing elsewhere. One of the great icons of the aviation world, and a principle architect of some of the amazing technological advancements in flight that we enjoy today.
Boeing engineer Joe Sutter led a team that designed the 747, a hump-backed behemoth almost as long as a football field that can pack in nearly 600 people. He died Aug. 30 at 95.

Transformed and loving life, people, and my Creator. Personable consulting & coaching pro.
Who am I??  Well, let me "define" myself:

First and above all, I'm a follower and lover of my Lord and Savior, Jesus. He changed my life ... my nature has been transformed, my heart renewed, and I'm experiencing healing. He's my forgiver and leader, and I'm on an wonderfully adventurous journey with Him headed toward home!

Second, I'm married to a great gal named Mary Beth, the love of my life for 33 years now and the fantastic mother of my children.  Those "children' are daughter Lauren and three sons Tyler, Alan and Kyle; all great kiddos out of the nest and moving forward with their own lives.  Lauren is a graphic designer and branding specialist (Lauren Hanley Design ... see link below if you're interested!), Tyler is a transportation designer (with General Motors), Alan a Creative Marketing Account Executive (Mission Staff), and Kyle is a graduate student and Assistant Volleyball Coach at Elmira College (Alan and Kyle were also former Penn State Volleyball players). And now there's daughter Lauren and husband John's two children and our grands, Jacob and Nate Hanley!

Third, I'm President of Graywolf Productivity Solutions, serving the Greater Rochester, NY business community, and beyond, with great professional business finance and accounting services.  I provide QuickBooks consulting & training, Life-work productivity coaching, business back office and virtual office integration services. You can find out more about what I do to "earn a living" at

Fourth, I'm a "rainbow-man" when it comes to heritage and culture. My ancestry includes a variety of nationalities and colors ... Native American (Narragansett Tribe of Southern Rhode Island), African-American, Euro-American (English and French) and traces of others.  Though I understand the reality and importance of cultural and social distinctions in my own life and the lives of others, those distinctives always take a back seat to the spiritual reality of who I am and how my Creator views me.  I can truly say with the Apostle Paul:

"... you have clothed yourselves with a brand-new nature that is continually being renewed as you learn more and more about Christ who created this new nature within you.  In this new life, it doesn't matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbaric, uncivilized, slave, or free. Christ is all that matters ..." (Colossians 3:10-11)

I enjoy road bicycling, walking, golfing (working on my game feverishly!), model railroading and a rail-fan of the real thing, reading widely, growing spiritually and professionally (and helping others do the same), and watching good football, basketball and volleyball.

I love, love, love to listen to a mix of good smooth jazz and contemporary christian music tracks (sprinkle in some good R&B and country tunes too!), and taking in the sights and sounds of the beauty of nature (and enjoying great pics from those who capture it by camera).

I'm headed for an eternity with THE Creator of the universe ... will I see you there??
