Thanks for Listening!

One of the things I am most grateful for is being heard.  Sad, isn’t it? In a world filled with noise, we don’t listen to each other. For me, I feel I am heard so infrequently that it actually shocks me when people get what I’m trying to say. For example, this month is employee … Continue reading

Take the Stress out of De-Stressing the Holiday

I get it. You want to impress. So this weekend has been spent shampooing carpets and cleaning the bathroom tile crevices with a toothbrush. If you haven’t already, you’ll begin your food preparations today or tomorrow. You’ve already decided whether to go with something new or the tried-and-true holiday favorites. Turkey or alternative meat-free roast. … Continue reading

Showing a Little Gratitude for My Natural Surroundings

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving! Time to rest up for Wednesday night- the biggest bar night of the year. Yep, it surpasses New Years’ Eve even!

A Word of Thanks for Those Who Make it All Possible

Forty-five million. That’s how many turkeys have been slaughtered, processed, frozen, and shipped to grocers across the country for Americans to buy and prepare for their Thanksgiving celebrations. I know you’re already aware of the bird’s path from egg to frozen ball in your refrigerator, so I won’t waste your time going there. If you … Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving US Friends!

Oh Dog! Today is a super-special holiday here in the US. It’s Thanksgiving! The Puritans were not big on holidays; they didn’t even celebrate Christmas or Easter. But they did celebrate days of thanksgiving when things were going well, such as after a bountiful harvest. So really the first celebration didn’t happen in Plymouth in … Continue reading
