Choosing Sides

While it is winter on the calendar, it is a bit hard to tell around here. We have flowers poking through the ground in mid-February when they aren't really supposed to show themselves for at least another 6 weeks. Much of the folks I...

Shower Curtains & Chatter

Have you been traveling much recently? If so, you have probably noticed the propagation of those bulging shower curtains of late. Bathtubs are a pretty confining place to take a shower, especially when you throw in those nasty safety bars on the walls. However,...

Football & Opportunity Management

Death threats! A dropped ball and a missed kick led to death threats. Last week during the title matches that produce the participants for the Big Game in American football, two players suffered season-ending miscues. As a result, two teams went on vacation. Those with...

To Be or Not To Be (centralized)

We just finished a presidential primary race in our neck of the woods. It is interesting to watch, but the television advertising gets quite fatiguing. Another interesting element of the process is that it will eventually end with one winner – first for the...

Your Requirements Aren’t Good Enough

Motivational speakers have a great job. They get paid wicked amounts of money and have no accountability. Plus, people listen to them, actually listen and heed their advice. I had the wrong major in school, so did not get the training for the motivational...

Just Get’er Done

We had our first snowfall in Southern New England yesterday. Yes, they have had snow in the mountains but for the rest of us flatlanders we finally got our punkins frosted. When this happens around this time of year you can hear the clock...

Social Business For Business

The leaf peepers are out. New England, as happens this time of year, is awash in color and the tourists are here in droves. It drives some to Burlington and it lures some to North Conway. The Duckboats in Boston are jammed. Mystic is...

Bananas in the Wind

It was a hurricane weekend, literally. Irene was making her way up the Eastern Seaboard, and she had her crosshairs on New England for the last good weekend of the summer. We were to be housebound for two days seeking refuge from the waves...

Hunters versus Farmers

Berry season is just wrapping up for me and while I was out in the patch for what may be the last harvest I got to thinking about paleontology. I seem to recall different articles, probably from National Geographic, or perhaps maybe the History...

Who’s Calling The Plays?

While watching a baseball game the other night, the discussion between the two announcers during a lull in the game turned to the concept of game pace. Obviously the pace of the game was resulting in the lull and, interestingly, the MLB administration wants...

Social Sandbox

This week is the sand castle building contest at our town beach, an activity that brings in tourists to gawk at the crazy things that sand castle builders can make with tiny granules of quartz and calcium. It is a very interesting and enjoyable...
