Best Job Ever!

(0)

With everything that’s been going on in the world these days, you’d think I’d be tempted to post something about a serious topic. Elections, Health Care, Registries, Global Warming, Israel, United Nations, Guns. These are ALL issues worthy of discussion, and, although highly unlikely, some of you might actually be interested in my opinion on […]

I Wanna Go To Florida!

(0)

Under the heading of “You can’t make this sh*t up”…. If you’ve never spent any time in South Florida, then you probably never understood why the Seinfeld Florida episodes were so funny. It’s not that the writers were so good at making up funny stories, it’s because it was all completely accurate. It’s that time […]

Need some more Thanksgiving advice?

(0)

We’re officially into the holiday season. Thanksgiving is just a few days away. There are huge Norwegian spruce trees lit up in every major city. The Halloween candy has been eaten. My car will be loaded on a truck tomorrow, and I’ll meet it in Florida in 12 days. Call it efficiency, or insomnia, but […]

Healthcare Isn’t All Bad

(0)

It’s been a long time since my last post, and I know that’s had a lot of you very concerned 🙂  Not to worry, I’ve been a little busy, and kept finding other things to occupy my time. Several months ago, I posted about the challenges of being a “Professional Patient”. Last week, I was […]

I Never Met Them…

(0)

When a family member or friend passes away, the feelings of loss make complete sense. You knew the person and the impact you feel is logical.  But, what about someone who you never met? Why should that bother you? Over the years, I always marveled at people I saw on TV leaving flowers for a […]

The Planets

(0)

When we last left our hero, I was working at Sun Microsystems Computer Corp. (SMCC). This was the hardware division of Sun, where we sold the high-powered SPARC family of computer workstations. I was working out of the Norwalk, CT sales office. It was 1992, and I had been a Sun SE for a little […]

The Olympics

(0)

I’ve been watching a LOT of Olympic coverage these last two weeks (mainly because Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune are on summer break, everything else is a repeat, and the new Red Sox play-by-play guy sucks). My first Olympic reaction is that I want to find a doctor that is as good at his profession […]

Cancer Free for 35 Years!

(0)

Next week marks the 35th anniversary of my last radiation treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma!!! For the next several days I’m going to try and focus on the 35 years without cancer, and not think about my current health issues. In December, 1980, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s on my 21st birthday. Editorial note: I was […]

Karma is an Interesting Thing

(0)

Do you believe in Karma? I do. Karma is a nice word for admitting that I can be a vindictive SOB, and not have to apologize for it. In the business world, and more specifically, in the world of Sales, believing in Karma is the only way you can get through many situations. Customers, co-workers, […]

Happy Fourth of July!

(0)

It’s hard to believe, but July 4th weekend is upon us. For some reason, it seems to be early this year. That must mean that Christmas and Hanukkah will be late? I think that’s how it works. If you’re hosting or guesting this weekend, and wondering what wines to serve/bring, I have some favorites for […]
