  We spent last week in Florida visiting family, including my mother in law. She recently celebrated her 96th birthday. Think about that. She was born in 1922. World War I was over and she would be a young girl when World War II broke out. She was born during Prohibition (which didn’t end until 1933) and lived through the Great Depression. Her body may be starting to show some wear and tear, but her memory and recollection are pristine. As a result, sitting and just tal...

  It’s such a small thing, but so powerful and so noticeable when absent.     When someone says “thank you” it means that they appreciate something you have done. With two small words, they show gratitude for something large or small. It could be as simple as a cashier saying thank you when your transaction is complete. Or if someone gets up to give you their seat on a crowded subway, a thank you is certainly called for.     I remember a parent teacher conference when J...

Sometimes I wish I had a blog in the box ready to go. Here's how Monday night goes in my house.  At some point late, I turn around and a loud curse word escapes from my lips and whichever family  member is nearby says out loud -- "You have to write a blog". Yes, yes I do.   Today I ask for ideas.  What would you like your bloggers to tlak about?  Let's come up with a list.   You start....

  My daughter and I were having a conversation the other day about college professors. I was kind of astounded by the process she was describing in choosing a course to take.     She was explaining to me that part of choosing a class is vetting the professor. For most professors, there is information available on professor rating websites to see student experience.     It’s a new world. ...

  With Father’s Day just having passed, I think about the type of wisdom and advice that passes from father to child.   My father was all about honesty, integrity and doing the right thing -- alongside a corny joke. He was very free with his advice. To this day, I continue to hear stories about advice my father gave family and friends when it came to handling difficult times in their lives. And, in every situation, it was about making sure to do right.   Your turn . . . w...

Before a series of firsts.     Today was my son’s last day of high school class. He has one test before graduation next week, but for all intents and purposes his high school years have ended.     Two weeks ago we had his last Spring Concert, the last time he will arrange and perform with his acapella group. Then of course, there was prom this past Friday night.     See what I mean? It’s a series of lasts. Don’t get me wrong. Each “last” has been a celebration of accomp...

  My house is in the middle of two graduations. It’s the thing that happens when your children are four years apart. But, that is not the subject of my blog. I promise, much to follow on those subjects.     As I write this blog, I am sitting here perusing my son’s high school yearbook. I intentionally ordered doubles of both yearbooks. I decided that when I was old and grey (next year . . .) and my children were no longer under my roof, I was going to want to be able to rem...

  I need some help understanding a phenomenon running through the radio. Do you hear Yanni or Laurel?   I have listened at different times on different channels and pieces of equipment. I hear Yanni (sorry, Laurel). But the rest of my family definitely hears Laurel.   We have seen things like this before. Remember the dress that was either gold or blue?   Can someone please explain this to me? ...

  I’m noticing lately that I am receiving more and more email soliciting my business. These emails don’t read like spam necessarily. They are coherent and pointed descriptions of a service.     I don’t like these email solicitations. They clog my inbox and I am not likely to engage someone through such a “cold call” email but maybe I am missing something.     Have you ever done business with someone who “cold called” you through email?     ...

  It’s allergy season. Runny eyes, sneezing. You know the drill.     I suppose on the other side of this season, we know that spring is here and that’s good.     But until then, I just look forward to that daily dose of Zyrtec.     Anyone have any allergy secrets to share?   ...
