My Note to My Daughter’s Teacher…

😉 lol,

I LOVED my reply to you. It was ALL me.

Kat has to maintain a B to ; B- average in school and I’m FINE w that. A C+ and the world ends until MY WORLD (Bs) is back in Place.

But beyond that….I have Plans for Kat! I can Work Anywhere in the World I want! China. Russia. France. Istanbul. Japan.

I need Kat to EXCEL in MY WORLD….the world of People….but I also insist on a solid “B” for K-12 education and at minimum a 4 yr degree in a Vocation, like Teaching or Accounting like mom.

I’ll take care of the WORLD part…just need you to help me keep her on the B part of my World.

Steven Palange, Katerina’s Father.


Hero Again Today…

My co-parent was sick all weekend.

I told my 8yo “Let’s stop by mom’s before school so You can see how she feels”.

Mom called tonight to tell our daughter “I Love You Soo Much for this morning”. Kat accepted the Love. Looked at me…and we smiled.

I’m a badass Hero today…to my ex, my daughter and now my gf who will see this and Gush w love…. Hero.


I was a Hero Today…

I woke up and said to myself, I can be a hero right now. I can save a damsel in distress. Bring Joy to someone’s Life. So I did. Does it matter what I did? I don’t think so. Is that how you bring Joy? Ok, “I brought Joy to a single mother of two young adults who raised them on her own since they were Toddlers. I sent her about 8 hours of Joy today…but then I kept it HIGH…

How to make a call….



😉 I now take every caller who calls my phones….work and personal. Most of the time they are Salespeople…..sometimes GOOD, sometimes BAD….

This one was Good! In the first 3 seconds she explained why she’s calling (I filled out an online form for something free) and in the FIRST THREE SECONDS….I knew that…..

  1. She was Professional. I was SOOO glad she wasn’t unprofessional, couldn’t speak properly, etc.
  2. She told me WHY she was calling – and I had no interest.
  3. She politely and IMMEDIATELY agreed to DNC me, but then ; ) pushed a little by “asking” (again, professional) if she could send me some information via email (an ad for her and her company).

We thanked each other. Hung up. I was Happy. She didn’t make a sale or even has a chance at a Prospect….but she handled it Professionally, Quickly and Smoothly!!!

I went away happy. She went away happy. She’ll make 10 calls like this. Hopefully the will all go this way. On her 10th call!!! Someone will be VERY glad she called! Wished she had called WEEKS ago….

But she had to call those 9…to find that 1….

I Bench Press 315lbs…often…

I can bench press 315lbs. I’m 5′ 8″ and 135lbs. You impressed? You should be damnit. I worked Hard to get where I am today. Most days it’s only 135lbs I play with. It’s easy. It keeps me in shape. Some days I do 225lbs. But whenever possible I throw UP the big weight. No Pain. No Gain.

How about 405lbs? 500lbs? No. I’m not built for those #’s… I’m just not in That League. Or at least I can say, I’m not there yet.
