My first entry 12-30-09

 Wow, this is year is almost over, I am really looking forward to a new start in the New Year!. Our whole family is ready for that.  I am going on to doing new adventures this next year, I have always wanted to write and have had some things published when I was much, (much) younger.       I know this is not a normal post but it is my first one on here. I am just really trying to get the feel for this blog.  I like the concept of the blogher.com but now I just need to figure all the ins and outs of it. ...more

Reminiscing on a Corporate Christmas Faux Pas

Amid a deadline at work, I have the need to write about something other than work-related news items. If you'd asked me a few years ago that I'd be writing for a living, I'd have smiled and hoped you were right. I've changed the course of my career and am happy--for now.
