Are we in San Antonio or Seattle?

I’ve been away from home this weekend. My wife and I have an agreement that when I travel, I won’t blog about it before I go. Something about the entire planet knowing that I’m away from home… Anyhow, through the mighty power of WordPress, I’m setting this post to publish automatically at approximately the same […]

Missed It

I flew to Chicago on Saturday afternoon to visit with my friend Scott… at least that was the plan. It never happened. I missed my flight. I suppose I can look at it only having been a matter of time before I missed a flight. It always seemed like something I would be capable of. […]

San Antonio 101

Things I learned after 8 days in San Antonio, Texas: Only tourists pronounce the “io” in Antonio. It’s San Antone to those in the know. If there’s not a hefty portion of pepper in your food, it’s not done yet. Apparently the rules of southern hospitality prevent a waitress from simply taking your order, bringing […]

Being away on business always has a way of putting things in perspective for me. I’m away from my family and friends, my home, my pets, my comforts – being away on these week long trips heightens my appreciation for these things and more. I was in Atlanta, Georgia the past two days and, nothing […]

Looking out from my pink stucco terrace toward the Atlantic Ocean on another sunny 80-degree day, I gaze at the white 10 million dollar yachts docked in the ICW…. and something flashes to catche my […]

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho

The local Indian tribe were named “Coeur d’Alene” by the French settlers. It means “Heart of an Awl” reflecting the local tribe’s sharp trading practices. The 25-mile lake is home […]

2 Big Introductions

The last few days I had the distinct pleasure of meeting two very important people. The first, as you can see, happened this afternoon. I was in NYC working with a client’s sales meeting and their keynote speaker was Olympic speed skater Bonnie Blair. She competed in four winter olympic games in 1984, 1988, 1992 […]

Lake Placid

Shot in downtown Lake Placid, NY. Lake Placid High School is to the right and the Olympic Ski Jumps are off in the distance, in the heart of the Adirondacks. Directly behind me is the ice hockey arena where USA defeated Russia in the 1980 Olympic Games. If you’ve seen the movie Miracle – this […]

5 Days

I just handed Erin off to her mother for a quick snack before bed. She gave me a big hug around my neck and I left the room. I immediately ducked back in and said, “Erin!” – to get her attention – “I love you.” I then slipped out. It’s important to me that “I […]
