Days 318 & 319 - Breaking Up the Band
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      12 comments

When a favorite band breaks up it can be hard for the fans. I remember when the Beatles decided to go their separate ways. I thought the world was coming to an end, because I wouldn't hear any of "their" music again. What I didn't realize was ho... Read more
Day 317 - The Voice
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      12 comments

There are days when you know that you have to take an opportunity and grab it and use it for all it's worth. The Judge's Breakfast today was a great experience in networking and engaging with the community. I actually had to convince someon... Read more
Day 312 - The Walmart Thing
Thursday, October 08, 2015      9 comments

Thanks for all your comments about my blog yesterday and the meeting at City Hall. There is a lot of emotion over Walmart as a company and an employer, and I've heard lots of opinions. Most of them were very valid. I had a conversation at t... Read more
Day 311 - Expansions of another sort
Wednesday, October 07, 2015      14 comments

I had to go to a meeting at the city hall today. The Walmart that shares our southern border on campus is expanding, adding 40,000 square feet, more food, and changing their hours from 7am - 11pm to 24/7. It will mean a lot of safety issues on c... Read more
Day 310 - At the Core of the Matter
Tuesday, October 06, 2015      13 comments

The past three days my exercise routine has focused on core work - both with cardio and strength training. For the past month or so, I've noticed that my abs are tighter and firmer than they've ever been in my entire life. Because of all this fo... Read more

We had a great evening with our friend Bill tonight. Our contractor Danny came over, and he managed to flirt with all of us. He and I have the same birthday, and we're both expert at flirting, so I can't say I'm surprised! Still, it was a fun ev... Read more

Today was the meeting with the Interim Director of the program that includes my team of women who don't like each other and don't get along. Suffice it to say that it was a great meeting, and everyone was on their best behavior. I've given my sp... Read more

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      16 comments

I had a meeting this morning with one of my teams that supports students who need a little extra help with college - a lot of single moms and low-income youth. It's a great program, but the team running it is incredibly dysfunctional. There is a... Read more
