When Thank You is Just Not Enough …

Saying thank you is just not enough … Last week, I stopped in our local Jewel Foods store in Bourbonnais to pick up eggs and a few other items. As I was approaching the entrance, I saw a well-dressed, older man with white hair and a moustache. He was wearing a military-style cap, while holding a change collection can in one hand and a bouquet of artificial red flowers in the other. Our eyes met and I instantly understood who he was and what he was doing. I felt I knew this man, even though I am sure we have never met. I smiled and said, “I’ll catch you...

“Playing with the Enemy”

“Playing with the Enemy” The Award Winning Bestseller by Gary W. Moore Synopsis: Warren Eugene Moore IT WAS TRUE IN THE 1940s, and it is still true today: if you have talent, someone will notice.

As a teenager, when he wasn’t in school or helping his Pop on the farm, slopping the hogs and doing other chores with his older brother Ward and five sisters, Gene was playing baseball with the guys on the town team.

Father of My Father

I am blessed. My second grandson was born this month. His name is Noah. Like his older brother Caleb, he is perfect. People have told me for years that grandkids are different from your kids and they are right. I can’t speak for others, but my grandchildren are perfect. Having two grandsons has caused me to spend a lot of time lately thinking about my grandfather, John Bert Moore. John was married to my grandmother, Allie and they had seven kids, two boys and five girls. My Dad, Gene Moore, was the younger of the two boys and fifth in birth order. John and Allie raised their family in a three room home at the corner of Matthew...

Remembering Steve Jobs …

I would not have been considered as part of the ‘target market’ for Walter Isaacson’s new biography of Steve Jobs. I knew very little about Jobs. I am at best a point and click MicroSoft computer user and really only have a vague idea of what an operating system is. I began reading this book because over the last 4 years, I have been told I look like Steve Jobs, maybe a hundred times. I was actually pulled out of line by the TSA last year at Seattle-Tacoma Airport and brought through a special line. I thought I was going to be searched but as I was walking through, the TSA agent said, “I am praying for you,...

Only eleven months until Christmas! Can you believe it? 🙂 Being an author is fun and exciting, but it takes as much discipline as I can muster to stay on schedule and get things done. I am an extrovert and writing is something you do alone in your head, so I am not able to sit for six hours or more and write. If I did, I’d lose my mind. So instead, I will write several times a day for an hour or two at a time. I’ve been writing a bit this morning and decided to take a break and chat with you! The beginning is writing the book, but the work of trying to sell it goes on and on and on. So in that spirit, I am excited to share with you that from now through February 5, Hey Buddy is on sale for Kindle at...

A Hero Lived Among Us …

A Hero Lived Among Us …

posted on: Jan 8, 2012 | author: Gary

A hero lived among us in Kankakee County, Illinois. Most of our residents were unaware, but how could they be? He did not brag about his exploits or flaunt his medals. He didn’t write a book or go on a tour to talk about himself, although his life and experiences are the kind of material that makes bestsellers. Like so many members of “The Greatest Generation,” he lived a quiet, unassuming life. After saving the free world, he returned home, went to work, raised a family and didn’t talk about it. The word hero is tossed around in so many ways and applied to so many people that it often losses its meaning. But when someone referred to John Neville as a hero, it is applied with the highest honor and the greatest purpose. John Neville, of Bradley, Illinois, passed away this week. I personally know of no other...

What is your 2012 Success Plan?

What is your 2012 Success Plan?

posted on: Jan 1, 2012 | author: Gary

Happy New Year! There is nothing like the beginning of a brand new year to refresh our optimism and hope. For centuries, people have set goals and made resolutions for the coming year. The prospects for a happy and successful future are always highest on January 1. Then what happens? January 2 arrives with the realization that this new year will be just like the old year unless you personally do something to make it different. Yesterday, in my blog, I talked about success and said I would post more today. First of all, allow me to share with you that I do not have all the answers. When it comes to success, I do not believe there are experts. So please, take what I say as opinion and the thoughts of a guy who has enjoyed a few big successes in life and a few failures. I do,...
