Over the weekend I saw the movie "Kick-Ass."  It's a highly controversial film because, aside from the general violence and strong language, one of the characters is a 13-year old female crimefighter who swears like a sailor and kills like an angry ninja.  Suffice to say, its "R" rating is deserv...

On Friday night, I was running errands.  My wife called and asked me to pick up a Diet Coke on the way home- she told me she was in the mood for fountain pop ("soda" for my East Coast friends).  The closest place happened to be a Dairy Queen, which is a soft-serve ice cream chain. Apparently, the...

Lawn-mowing season is upon us!  My dilemma this year is whether to use the service I've engaged in the past, or to do it myself.  I have mixed feelings...

I love buying books at the dollar store.  The one by my office sells all kinds: biographies, political thrillers, mysteries, business, self-help, humor, travel... They don't have everything all the time, but if I stop in every couple of weeks there's usually a completely new batch.  Yesterday I g...

Yesterday was beautiful, and so it was "outside clean-up day" at our house.  We all raked and weeded, while the kids also picked up pine cones and cleaned up after our dog.  At first, my wife and I worked in the backyard and our two daughters were in the front.  What I quickly discovered, however...

This time of year- the transitional time from winter to spring weather- is when I start my annual "gearing up" to exercise: running, biking, taking the dog for longer walks... I guess I use the cold as an excuse, because I could exercise more, but I just don't. This past winter my wife and I talk...

I have been interviewing this week, looking to hire some new sales representatives.  After setting up a time to come in, one of the candidates took a very professional measure by sending me an e-mail to confirm our appointment.  Unfortunately, this candidate was (in my opinion) very unprofessiona...
