Working in the 21st Century

October 18, 2017


Boy, times sure have changed. Sometimes I feel that I was born in the wrong century. My volunteer consulting project recently started up. I am very excited about this year’s team since we have a mix of both “older” volunteers (older meaning they are over 50) and “younger” volunteers (younger being under 30). Everyone is […]

October 4, 2017


It really is the small things that make life worth living. As we enter the season of cooler days and longer nights, I find it important to find ways to keep my spirits up. Here are some things that make me happy. 1. Trader Joe’s Cold Brew Coconut Coffee. I treat myself to this whenever […]

Adventures in Quincy

August 23, 2017


Normally, Quincy Massachusetts is not the place for adventures. Other than it being the birthplace of John Quincy Adams and home to the old Fore River Shipyard, there is nothing much of note there. I did live there 26 years ago when I first moved back from New York City. Mr. Ken and I had […]
