It’s not often I’m impressed with customer service. And, impressed with customer service from a cable company? Get real. An avid Tivo user, I found that Tivo could no longer switch channels on the cable box to record. For those who don’t use Tivo, this is a major feature that ceased to function. The Tivo […]

Look me in the eye!

I consider myself a quiet person, but not necessarily shy. I mention this because I think shy people sometimes have trouble making eye contact. I don’t have this problem. If anything, I may lock onto people’s eyes for too long because I want them to know I’m listening. During college summers I taught kids how […]

The well of blog posts has run dry for a few days. But, here’s a sports thought that seems to be endlessly bandied about. The New England Patriots were once again accused of running up the score in the latest thumping of an opponent, this one the Bills on Sunday night. Yes, they won by […]

Forever Heroes

You won’t see their last names on the backs of team shirts. They don’t have shoes named after them. They aren’t discussed on ESPN. Still, they are the true heroes. The first was Jacob Parrott. Recognize the name? Me neither. The most recent was Michael P. Murphy. How about that name? I didn’t know it […]

Politics Abound

Maybe it’s the month. November, after all, is election time. So what if there isn’t a presidential election this year–politics and their players are everywhere. They even popped up on several blogs I read. John over at Ronin Marketeer wrote about how the presidential candidates are (or aren’t) using podcasts in campaigns. Susie talked about […]
