We’ve all felt like a fool at one time or another, some of us maybe more than others. Yet we proud fools of western culture have a rich history dating all the way back to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in 1392. "Syn March Bigan Thritty Dayes and Two" the story begins in the "Nun's Priest's Tale" with...
I love talking about Social Media and lately I’ve had some great conversations that started with the question: “What is social media?” With that said it went suddenly quiet and I looked across the room of concerned faces staring back as if to ask, “Is that a trick question?” No, I laugh. Not at a...
I was grilling some marinated steaks for my son Jeff and I this past Friday night. We splurged! After a busy week it was fun to be home. I had a little more energy than some Friday’s. Instead of dead tired I was inspired to make a “real” dinner with all the fixings, tune out work, and watch a mov...
Wishing you all a great St. Paddy's Day... These things I warmly wish to you- Someone to love Some work to do A bit o' sun A bit o' cheer And a guardian angel always near. Irish Blessings and Sayings, author unknown.

Stuff is blowing sideways all over the place and you can see the wind bucking cars back and forth. I got home a few minutes after 6:00 pm and looked off my deck to ...
Last weekend I got to be “Mr. Domestic” as I like to put it. Everyday the week before was about major events. Network meetings, conference calls, a sales meeting, the Northwest Video Summit, RE Barcamp, and we ended the week with Mike Mueller doing a couple of great Facebook Business Page worksho...
I missed this one. We had a closing last Wednesday (March 2, 2011) just as I was leaving for the Northwest Video Summit with Frank & Brian of Think Big Work Small. A young couple was closing the purchase of their new home and had their 5 year old with them. He was a really cute, intelligent, and ...
As the old saying goes, March, in like a lion, out like a lamb. I'm thinking that might qualify this year. I'm looking forward to the lamb as the month goes by. I know this is only the evening of the 2nd day and already I've seen sun, wind, rain, hail, and snow. I love the kaleidoscope of it all....
