Why We Listen

This is a true story. Many moons ago when I was getting married at the “ripe” age of 21, I went to a hairdresser to style my hair for my wedding. I had been growing my hair out for months with visions of it being down and long and wavy. It sounds ridiculous saying it […]

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I do my best thinking while I’m mowing my lawn. I personally get out and push mow it. I have for years, and I enjoy it. There are no distractions, it’s good exercise,  and I have free time for thinking while getting some […]

Technology in Business Have y’all noticed how many things we’ve started doing online as of late that we used to do in person?
