As we all know in our business especially these days there are always characters who are willing to spout off unsupported opinions and they are always ready confront your statements no matter how factually supported your statements may be.  So this past week I decided to make a point of practicin...

Maybe I'm just becoming a feisty old geezer or what I've been noticing lately is that people just don't seem to be as aware of common courtesy as I remember they were from my past.  Back in the dark ages (1950s & 60s) when I was a kid my parents frequently said it doesn't cost me anything to say ...

The morning after our latest snow storm I woke up to the sound of my neighbor digging his car out of the pile of snow and ice that was dumped on us this week.  I heard the crunch crunch of the shovel the sound of the engine revving and whining of wheels spinning in the ice.  This went on for some...

Just as I recovered from a nasty winter cold the other day we were slammed with yet another snow storm.  There was at least another foot of snow to shovel out of my driveway and walkways with almost no where left to put it.  Like all my neighbors I was out as soon as the snow had stopped falling ...

Earlier this week a very dear old friend whose husband had recently passed away called and asked me for a favor.  I was happy to help her in anyway I could since she and her husband had always been very generous with their kindness to me and my former partner.  My friend inquired if I knew of a g...
