It happened again this morning.  I was lining up to enter the gym right behind this lady who, like me, appeared to be struggling with pre-dawn mobility.  She got to the double doors at the 24 Hour Fitness Center in our community, pulled it open, stepped through -- and let it go. I was less than ...
I came across a thread Stephan Swanepoel started in the Real Estate Trends group on Inman News. The subject of the thread and the title of this post were one in the same. While Stephan's article was insightful by itself, I was also intrigued by some of the comments. In response to an underlying ...

I'm normally loathe to follow the crowd into a scene. But I was compelled. I had to see what the commotion was about. My god! It had ...
Sis and I were shootin’ the breeze the other evening.  She’s the Operations lead for a small company.  They’re growing fast.  They’ve got a pretty impressive online model for training aspiring animators.  If you think: “Toy Story,” “Nemo,” “Monsters, Inc.,” you’d be in the ballpark about what ani...
