Christmas music

Have you noticed that some radio stations play non-stop Christmas music from the day after Thanksgiving through the end of Christmas day? Some of you may think this is fantastic. I like Christmas songs, but round the clock for a month gets to be a little much for me. I happen to find a couple […]

Lakawanna

Pennsylvania has some very strange town names. When we used to travel through PA, one of the town we passed was Lackawanna. (I spelled it incorrectly on purpose, I know nothing about the town and don’t mean any offense to those who live there.) We often passed the sign for Lackawanna College. We would tease […]

Not showing up

I have written on the topic of promise, agreements, commitments before, but I still find all too often that people think nothing of just not showing up for something they said they’d show up for. I find it very frustrating. Posting this as a reminder to keep your commitments (and if you don’t think you […]

Reflections of Thankfulness

My typical Turkey Day has always been crazy busy with cooking and socializing. So much so that I probably never took the time I should have to truly reflect on the reason for the day. Thanksgiving is a day to stop our busy lives and reflect on all the blessings we have and be truly […]

The world is your ashtray

Many years ago, before people really understood the dangers of smoking… • lots of people smoked cigarettes. • cars had ashtrays, sometimes multiple ashtrays. • people emptied their ashtrays into a trash bag and threw the bag in a trash can. WHAT?! Cars had ashtrays? They sure did. There was always one in the front […]

What are you silently telling everyone?

Your non-verbal body language speaks loud and clear. From the driver who aggressively flipped the bird at the car in front of me, to the very subtle tweak of an eyebrow by the person eavesdropping on a conversation… What are you silently telling everyone? I might even suggest that non-verbal communication is more effective than […]

Be safe on Halloween

Since I post my blogs on Friday, Halloween will occur before my next blog. SO, I thought I would take this opportunity to share some good information… Tuesday is Halloween.

“Are your “seeds” producing the desired “fruit”

I have to say, I am quite pleased that I am still able to pick fresh fruit and vegetables out of our garden. With that in mind, I got to thinking about the question, “Are your “seeds” producing the desired “fruit?” You’ve probably heard the term, “You reap what you sow.” Let’s face it, if […]

Get Over Yourself

What did I just say? You heard me, but I could phrase it maybe a little nicer. We need to get over ourselves. I could even make it very personal, I need to get over myself. No matter how I phrase it, the fact remains. I was having a conversation with a friend when they […]

Wondering leads to learning

I recently posted a PINTEREST picture/quote by Gandhi that says, “Persistent questioning and healthy inquisitiveness are the first requisite for acquiring learning of any kind.” What types of persistent questions are we asking to gain understanding? Typically… • What • Why • Who • When • Where • How Your basic questions for information and […]
