Tough competition

The National Football League Conference Championships will be played on Sunday. It's down to the final four teams. They've fought through 17 games in 18 weeks, two rounds of playoffs, and now the big prize, the chance to go to the Super Bowl. All four teams have a lot on the line, but the hard...

Facing St. Peter

I’ve cut people off on the highway. I’ve told a white lie or two. When I was in college, I didn't return the $10 the convenience store cashier handed me thinking it was a dollar bill. When my day comes and I get sent to the Pearly gates and Saint Peter asks me why he... Continue Reading →

Time’s a wastin’

The early bird gets the worm.  Time and tide wait for no man. Time is money.   Time flies. Okay you get the picture. I’m hyper sensitive to wasting time. I’m very much an achiever, I'm restless until I'm able to accomplish something -- both big and small goals -- each day. I need to be... Continue Reading →

Good things are coming

Whether you’re religious or not, there’s something I love about the Christmas week. I love that work is usually lighter and easier going. (It wasn't this week for me, but at least, now I get to regroup and get my head back on straight.) Coworkers are willing to help; nobody takes themselves too seriously.  People... Continue Reading →

Gifts of Christmas: Joy

When I think about the best moments in my life, they have not been about physical presents and gifts. Those joy-filled moments have instead been about walking down the aisle with my new wife, holding our babies close to my chest and then watching them grow into mature young adults, and celebrating a million other...

A doggie breach of contract

Nittany, our Lhasa Apso - Bichon Frise dog, broke our agreement. We had shaken hands and paws and everything. How did she reward me? She ripped up the contract and laughed in my face. Here's how it happened. Nittany was laying on the bed in my office. It's really just a spare room, but I... Continue Reading →

Gifts of Christmas: Hope

Christmas is a time of celebration and gift-giving as christians celebrate the birth of the Christ child. We tend to focus heavily on the consumer aspect of presents and gift giving. We all seem to be in search of the perfect present for family and friends. We run ourselves ragged, forgetting about the things that... Continue Reading →
