That Lovin’ Feelin’

DavidValentine’s Day is this week, and I would like to take this opportunity to discuss that special relationship we all have with our significant other – yes, our job. Are you singing, “whoa…whoa…you’ve got the best of my love”? Or perhaps it has become simply a J-O-B and you’re singing more along the lines of, “you’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’.”

FriedaGroundhog Day is recognized each year on February 2. It was originally adopted in the United States in 1887 by the editor of Philadelphia’s Punxsutawney Sprit, Clymer H. Freas.

You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Continue reading ‘Make Today a Day “On” Rather Than a Day Off’

Hiding in Plain Sight

JoAnn KawamotoReality shows turn me off. In particular I loathe reality shows with predictable stereotypes. The shows that are purposefully staged for conflict, televising dysfunctional people behaving badly.

There is one reality show that I do fancy… Continue reading ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’
