When I was in the 6th grade, I got a drum kit for my birthday.  My parents, then, apparently wanting to be equitable, enrolled my 4th-grade sister in cello lessons.  Big mistake. Try to imagine one instrument creating its own cacophony.  My sister made that cello sound like (alternatively or in ...

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a combination networking event/presentation hosted by Pure Visibility, an internet marketing firm headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The presentation reinforced just how crucial it is to have an internet presence in order to be competitive in today's b...

Because I have a business development role with Stewart Title Company, I belong to many professional organizations and attend a plethora of networking events.  As a result, I receive a tremendous amount of invitations to attend even more networking functions. So, in today's mail I got a flyer fr...

Election Day!  It's finally here, and with it an end (for a time) to political ads, "robo-calls", lawn signs and politically-charged posts on social media sites.  Yet, no sooner will today pass than the holiday season will emerge in full force.  The political ads will be replaced by sale ads, law...

One night this week I was watching TV with my wife.  Flipping through the channels, she paused on QVC (a 24-hour shopping network) because she is enamored with its Christmas offerings.  I admit I too became intrigued, due to what was being sold: Christmas lanterns.  As someone who works in a mar...

My 7th-grade daughter made her middle school's basketball team this fall, and now she has discovered the unfortunate world of cliques.  It appears that a natural enmity has arisen between the girls' basketball team and the cheerleaders.  The cheerleaders feel they work harder than the basketball...

Recently, I went to my dentist's to have a crown repaired.  Even though my dentist is a nice guy, for many reasons, I don't like to go see him.  I just dread getting the work done.  Plus, he's a good dentist, so he's busy- I've found that sometimes I have to wait around a while at his office.  A...

I was running errands a few days ago, shopping at the local grocery store.  I was just picking up a few things but the checkout lanes were packed- even the "U-scan" section was backed up into the preceding aisle.  However, the express lane at the far end seemed to have no line at all.  So, I hea...

I am privileged to chair the "Best of Troy" (architecture) committee for the Troy, Michigan Chamber of Commerce.  As such, I was invited to attend the Metro Detroit Regional Transit & Economic Development Forum yesterday.  The event was hosted by the Troy Chamber and James Scapa of Altair Engine...
