Like many of you, I was scrambling at the end of the year to get my finances in order before the new tax law changes. Part of this was donating to charities. One of the charities is my church. On December 28, I personally dropped off a rather substantial donation check to the rectory. I […]

Just some random thoughts this week, I’m still relaxing from Christmas break. So, I ordered some things from Amazon. And me, being the cheap, er, frugal person I am, never want to pay shipping so I had to order more stuff to make the required minimum. I think if I did the math, paying the […]

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 […]
