The Rating Phenomenon
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  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

Fatherly Advice
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  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 cam

Strolling Down Yearbook Lane
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  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

Do You Hear It?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  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

Do You Respond?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  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

Sniffles

  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?

Fifty-Eight Years
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  They were married fifty-eight years and his wife recently passed away. But, the workers at the local diner weren’t going to let this gentleman eat alone. Take it one step further – they weren’t going to let him be alone.     As he talked to one of the servers, she was asking questions about his wife and their life together. They had been very m

Welcome To The World
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  A new prince arrived yesterday. And the world rejoiced.     I have been a royal follower for a long time. Really, back to Princess Diana whose life, and death, I always followed.   Yesterday, I was taken by the fact that Kate, with a baby just 7 hours old, was dressed, poised and looking great showing off her new son on the steps of the hospi

Spring is Finally Here
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  How do I know? It’s not because the weather is warm and the flowers are starting to bloom. It’s not because the smell of grass has taken over from the smell of snow. Yes, snow does have a smell. It’s surely not because our percentage of meals on the grill has escalated.     It is because baseball is on the television in my house all the time –

Where Are Your Photos?
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I went looking for some photos recently. I wanted to share some memories from when my kids were young with a friend.     When I use the word “share” however, it isn’t intended in the context of social media. I really wanted to sit at a table with old photos, stroll down memory lane, and physically give some to a friend.     But when I started

Social Media for Business
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I have blogged many times over the years about social media, Facebook and related medium. Most of those posts have been about personal social media use.     Here is my question for today.     Do you use social media to help promote your business? If so, what have you found to be effective or ineffective? Inquiring minds want to know.

Teach Your Children and They Will Teach You
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  I think about the lessons that we have imparted to our children.     Work hard and accept responsibility, be considerate and show your love of others, embrace the elephants in your life, speak out if you see injustice, make a difference in the world around you, clean up after yourself, and on and on.     Over the past few weeks, I am convinc

My Favorite Groups
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Social media groups that is  -- an amazing resource if you are prepared to embrace it.     Facebook groups offer communities bonded around commonalities. There are Moms Groups, vacation groups, and food groups. Group members who are perfect strangers become friends in the presence of the rest of the community. It’s quite the phenomenon.

Snow, Shovel, Repeat
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  Today’s storm doesn’t look as if it is going to be as bad as initially predicted, at least here in New York. But with this being the third storm in two weeks, I’m asking this question – are we done yet? I am ready for the spring. Ready to put away my heavy winter coat, ready to open windows, ready to walk outside. So this morning I am sayin

The Route of the Dashing Commuter
Posted By : Nancy Schess

  In 1957, the LIRR created the image of “Dashing Dan” intended to personify its slogan, “The Route of the Dashing Commuter.” Dan was well dressed holding his hat with one hand as he ran to catch his train. Dan lasted on his own until around 1963 when Dashing Dottie was introduced, complete with high heels, skirt and handbag.     The introduction
