Social Media


I have a couple of dudes on my Christmas list. You know? Dad. Brother-in-law. And I always struggle with what to get them. I usually find a cool, soft t-shirt to replace the ratty ones that have hung on a few years too long. Or something for the bar. Liquor. A decanter. Wine glasses. You know because bars need to be stocked. Or I get them accessories for their electronics. Because who doesn’t need accessories for their...

I’ve Forgotten Why


Posted By on Sep 4, 2013 in Social Media | 55 comments

I used to love all things social media. But lately I’ve forgotten why. Blogging. Instagram. Twitter. Facebook. Slowly over time they’ve all made me weary. So much so that I can hardly remember what I loved so much about them in the first place… I think I loved how it allowed me to connect with people.

Not just because I am home again {and it is great to be home again}. But...

Last week I posed a question on here about boys and girls, men and women, friends forever or a recipe for disaster. The comments were fascinating. People told stories and shared opinions. A beautiful dialogue was created. So today I want to pose another series of questions on something that has been nagging at me lately and let you guys impart your wisdom once again.

Posted By on Jan 31, 2011 in Social Media | 59 comments

Lately I have noticed that we (yes, me too) sure tweet a lot of lies. We tweet a lot of untruths, falsehoods, fibs, fabrications, deceptions, inventions, pieces of fiction, falsifications, half-truths, exaggerations, and tall tales. Plainly, we tweet lot of crap. Call me a skeptic BUT was that sandwich REALLY the best thing you have ever put in your mouth or did it not taste nearly as good as it looked in the picture? Was that 2.5...
