Welcome to my home on Hubpages. My Name is Dexter Yarbrough, but most folks just call me Dex. I am a husband, father, son, brother, friend, photographer and manager at a consulting company.

My mission on Hubpages is to inspire, support and encourage others. I will do so with helpful comments, sincere words and heartfelt praise. There are so many great writers here. I am learning so much from so many.

Spiteful critics and haters are not welcome here. There is already enough ugliness in the world. Please take your ignorance elsewhere. Thought-provoking and helpful comments are welcome.

Some of my favorite sayings:

"People who say that something is impossible should not interrupt those who are managing to get it done." - Unknown

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” – Robert Frost

"To those that love me, no explanation is necessary. To those that hate me, no explanation is acceptable." - Steve Harvey

"In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." - MLK

"Like me or love me unconditionally. Otherwise, leave me alone!" - Me

I generally write hubs on humor, health and photography, which is my passion. You will also find my signature series here - The Morning Conversations of Barack & Michelle Obama. This series is fictional and satirical. It follows the private conversations of the President and First Lady. Republicans, Democrats, non-political folks and those from areas outside of the United States find it humorous and enjoyable.

I was voted as one of the Top 100 New Hubbers for 2011 coming in at number 16. I am thrilled that many people like my writings.

Several of my favorite hubbers have interviewed me:
