Lost In Space

By |January 19th, 2016|

Zinnia was lost yesterday. I’ve been missing in action on this blog since December. Blame my absence on an unplugged kayaking vacation in Costa Rica between Christmas and the New Year. Blame Zinnia being lost on the desire to get grass on the other side of the fence. Zinnia is my chicken. Zinnia is also […]

Ugly Holiday Sweater Day

By |December 18th, 2015|

I don’t own an ugly holiday sweater, but I am featured in BuzzFeed’s 2011 holiday photos that will give you holiday cheer. (See photo 20. Don’t laugh.)  However, if you do own an ugly top, today you can get media coverage. I always think of that scene in “Bridget Jones’ Diary” where her future boyfriend […]

Get Fit, a Bit

By |December 7th, 2015|

My new FitBit Charge works a bit and doesn’t work a bit. Corporate survival of the fittest games can make for big headlines, like this article in the Wall Street Journal. What new tools are you using today that could get you media coverage? Just write about your experience and share your thoughts on social […]

Bust A Move

By |December 4th, 2015|

My mother is visiting me and said this morning, “I’m washing my hands because I just touched the dirty laundry in the hamper and I don’t know where you’ve been.” At the same time, the news was on in the background reporting Charlie Sheen’s ex-fiancée lawsuit because essentially she didn’t know where he had been either. (I […]

#Childrensday

By |November 20th, 2015|

November 20th, 2015 is Universal Children’s Day. So, today I’m choosing to speak about children and my commitments to provide environments that support the full potential growth for them. I bypassed commenting on some news this week because well, the events left me speechless. Let’s focus on the positive, though. Children. What I want to […]

Stop Thief!

By |November 13th, 2015|

Notice food drives everywhere? Someone stole the organic, gluten-free brown rice farina I left at my gym’s food drive for the needy. I kid you not. I was talking to the gym receptionist and she said, “Yesterday a lady grabbed some food and said she didn’t know where to get that item so she’s going […]

All The Single Ladies

By |November 11th, 2015|

Today in China it’s “Singles Day” and stores give discounts to people wanting to “treat themselves.” It’s a great idea, I think. Especially for single ladies. Hold that. For ladies. In fact, holidays are a great news hook. Whether it’s Veterans Day, Black Friday or Singles Day, the media covers holidays and more.

I represent “Take […]

Lick Your Chops

By |November 3rd, 2015|

My mother’s visiting me and my Siberian husky licks her chops every time my mom walks by her. My mom noticed this lately and I said, “Could it be you give her a treat every time you look at her?” My mom laughs. We’re all this way, though. When we get conditioned to ‘lick our […]

Go Royals!

{{Singing to the tune of Carly Simon’s, “You’re So Vain.” I recommend listening to this song while you read this blog entry today.}}”You walked into this blog like you were walking into TV. And you probably think this blog is about you, don’t you” … Kansas City Royals? Well, it could be about you, sports […]

Look Ma, No Hands

By |October 26th, 2015|

Who is in the driver’s seat of your life? Recently I drove my nephew and three of his teenage friends from Louisville, KY to Cincinnati, OH to visit the Halloween-decorated amusement park, Kings Island. My nephew drove my father’s old Toyota. It’s a stick shift. So, I didn’t need an amusement park by the time […]
