    We Are All Different
    We Are All Different

    We are all different.  We come from different parts of the world and have different cultures.  We look different and at times have contrasting opinions on how society should work.  We have different styles and we have different religions.  Unfortunately, many people in our society fear people that are different than them.    We tend to gravitate toward and live in neighborhoods that make us feel comfortable and there is nothing wrong with that.  However, we often fail as a society in respecting ...

    October Ready
    October Ready

    Throughout the country we are starting to see a change.  A change in the air temperature, a change in the length of the day, and a change in the foods we see and eat.  As the season changes so do our activities.  The public pools are long deserted, stores are advertising Halloween candy, and grocery stores are changing displays to sell the current seasonal fruit.  If look hard enough you can even see the first signs of Christmas and the holiday season too.  Now that we realize the world around u...

    Time To Do Our Part
    Time To Do Our Part

    For those of us who follow world news, one topic has dominated the headlines recently.  This topic is more important than talks of impeachment or the latest political or sports news.  Climate change, global warming, and efforts to make a positive impact on our world’s health is now front and center.  Speeches have been made at the United Nations and have been talked about in the news; however, many of us still fail to do our part.  Making a difference doesn’t have to be difficult, we can all do ...

    Cultivating our Communication Skills
    Cultivating our Communication Skills

    A lot of our work headaches are avoidable.  We often make simple mistakes because we do not have the most up to date information or we are given poor instruction.  A lot of frustration can be avoided through good communication.  Now this is a lot easier said than done.  We often forget to relay some important facts or speak incorrectly, and this can lead to very bad consequences.  These errors, although avoidable, still happen and there are some simple steps we can take every day to minimize the...

    Personal Time
    Personal Time

    Who can remember the last time we had nothing to do?  When the house was empty and we had no bills to pay, phone calls to make, children to pick up, or work assignments.  For a lot of us it has been years since we have had this lack of responsibility.  Modern technology ensures that we are always available.  A coworker or family member can call or text us and expect a quick answer.  Jobs are more demanding and the 40 hour work week is mostly a thing of the past.  It is true there are benefits to...

    Unconditional Love
    Unconditional Love

    Unconditional love is tough to find even in the best relationships.  We often get mad at our loved ones and arguments and fights are inevitable.  However, for most of us, we do have a companion who will never talk back and can put a smile on our faces no matter the situation.  This companion is our beloved pets.   Dogs, cats, and other animals can be trouble, but they can also provide us the therapy and love we need at times without having to say a word.

    Technology and the Global Economy
    Technology and the Global Economy

    We are all very fortunate to live in the 21st century for a number of reasons.   We have developed technology to make our lives easier.  Food and water are cleaner, and healthcare continuously makes improvements which impacts our quality of life.  The global economy allows us to obtain more possessions than ever before and gives us access to things that were only available regionally in the past.   It is easy to lose track of all the benefits of life in the 21st century.   Below you will see a l...

    Fall is Upon Us
    Fall is Upon Us

    None of us want to admit that summer is coming to an end.  The temperatures are starting to cool down at times, and the smell and feel of the air is noticeably different.  The good news is we are still a long way away from winter; however, the bad news is the days will continue to get cooler and shorter.  With so much attention given to the summer and winter months, we often forget that fall is a season of its own with unique characteristics.

    It's Fantasy Football Time Again

    It is hard to believe, but once again we are only a few weeks out from NFL football.  As NFL teams near the end of training camp and prepare for a few last warm up games the true football fan becomes focused on one thing, Fantasy football.  Many of us play in at least one league and we are entering the draft time window.  Fantasy football is a great way to enjoy the sport with friends and coworkers and it is a way to create some friendly competition.  So if you haven’t joined a league or planned...
