Beef and Boards kicks off anniversary season with brilliant comedy
Beef and Boards — you surprised me yet again.
I have never seen the 1941 movie, Arsenic & Old Lace, and didn’t know much about the show prior to media night.
Resolutions begin with ideas, realized with actions
Big shock, it’s the beginning of a new year and the fitness guy is talking about resolutions.
Have a little dialogue if you want to connect
Two and a half hours of Les Miserables convinced me of one thing — spoken words matter.
A little family history, a lot of sewing
Eldest and Middlest received sewing machines from their dad for Christmas this year.
Here’s a little help with those garden resolutions
Gardeners are among those closest to the earth’s moods. Because even slight changes in weather can affect our garden efforts, we sense the breath, the heart and the temper of her tone.
She’s got a bad case of the earworms
Middlest is seriously considering a career in music. She is understandably concerned about her ability to support herself if she follows her bliss. A few weeks ago she confided that she is afraid that music will become extinct. I assured her that music is part of our human experience and isn’t going anywhere. As sure as I am that pursuing a career in music will be difficult, I am equally certain that music will survive.

The experience of holiday shopping
I visited Castleton Square Mall last week for the first time in well over two years, maybe three.
It was my first time in any of the grand shopping malls since the middle of the great recession. I was there for a specific gift at a specific store. Their online website had clued me in that there were still a few left in inventory. I picked up the item and one other while traversing the store. Mission accomplished.
The name is new, but it’s still a party
It’s time for holiday office parties again. I started working in the days before political correctness and the annual party was referred to as the office Christmas party. Times change, though, and I am completely happy to go along with the term holiday party. Then the thing became known as a year-end party. Still OK, but last week I was introduced to the year-end meeting. To fully understand my reaction, I must share a moment from my past.
Is it enough just to have a vision?
Last week while thumbing through a magazine, I came across an advertisement for a vision board training session. Until last summer, I had never even heard of a vision board, and now I find that I could make my own.
