I am a big fan of sending and receiving snail mail even in today's virtual world. Say what you will, but sending an e-card is NOT the same as receiving a handwritten physical card from someone. The convenience of walking to the mailbox to receive client payments or magazine subscriptions couldn't be easier. At $.45 (rising to $.46 in late January 2013) for a first-class U.S. stamp, you can't beat it. So, for a system so crucial to our life and business operations, how could it get perched on the edge of financial disaster?
This past weekend Peej and I headed to Pittsfield to be showered with baby...think 'It's Raining Men,' but with pastels. Delicious food, adorable [teensy] presents and a couple dozen of the East Coasters I like best. Also- more than five instances of "I cannot believe how HUGE you are," to which I reply: a) Believe it.
Although FedEx announced it was dropping the Kinkos name a couple of weeks ago, I just learned about it today. I have been working way too hard.
Many of us work hard 90% of the time. But sometimes we put in such incredibly ridiculous hours with so many back-to-back deadlines that even war horses have a point when they have to say " no mas."
I'm at "no mas."
