Going for the knockout

"Ladies and Gentlemen, in this corner, weighing in at a muscular 200 pounds and a record of 18 wins and 3 losses, we have the up-and-comer, the contender to the crown, the chief servant of the house. He cleans, he mops, there's little he can't fix. And in this corner weighing in at a portly... Continue Reading →

Gifts of Christmas: Faith

Christmas is not what we touch with our hands or see with our eyes, but what we feel inside and know in our hearts. It's the love that a small child has for his or her parents. It's the excitement we feel about getting together with loved ones and trading jokes and stories of cherished... 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 →

The First Noel

I’ve written a lot of content over the years, blogs, newspaper articles, executive presentations and speeches, marketing content, scripts, plays, and even an old, discarded novel to name a few.

Santa’s watchful eye!

My wife and I came down with a cough and cold recently and I went to CVS Pharmacy to get something to help with the symptoms. I wasn’t sure what I wanted, so I was reading the back of the packages to see what would work best. I had been reading the back of one... Continue Reading →

Black Friday craziness

I turned off my alarm. I didn’t want to wake up our kids. I could still see light from a street lamp outside of our house peaking through the window; however, I reached over and gently nudged my wife. She let out a groan and got up to get dressed.   We had made a deal.... Continue Reading →
