What do the holidays mean?

December 6, 2017

After my rousing pod walk on Thanksgiving Day, I was very much looking forward to sitting in our family room, enjoying the sun streaming through the windows, drinking a nice cup of coffee and reading the paper. The calm before the storm, so to speak. We invited our neighbor over for a Thanksgiving meal. I […]

Where in the world are Ken and Nancy?

A bit of a mystery this week. Can you guess where Mr. Ken and I vacationed last week? The only hint I will give is that it is in the mountains and I am now tempted to start saying, “Y’all” instead of “You all.” All will be revealed next week, so stay tuned. In the […]

Boy, times sure have changed. Sometimes I feel that I was born in the wrong century. My volunteer consulting project recently started up.

There are many ways to help.  Unfortunately, times like this also bring out the scammers. Here’s some information on where you […]

Life and kayaking into the wind

September 6, 2017

I love kayaking in the fall.  The beautiful, colorful leaves of the trees look especially nice from the river.  The humidity is a lot less in the fall, but you still get bright sunshine.  The only thing that often comes with the sunshine is the wind.  The other day was sunny and the temperature was […]

New sights in Boston

August 16, 2017

So I have been enjoying my sojourns into Boston to meet with potential consulting clients. I recently was lucky to have a client located right near Fenway Park. Yes, that’s right, right next to the home of the Red Sox. I walked from Back Bay Station to this location. I was fascinated by the walk […]
