I just replied to a posting by Loreena Yeo in which she asked `Is a balanced life a mediocre life?` I think this topic is worth some discussion, so I am posting my reply to her as another blog, and I would invite your responses. ***Hi Loreena.

My schedule and my wife's are a bit too active for a vacation right now, but we both felt like we needed one, so this week we opted for a cottage rental about 1/2 hour from work - but a full hour away from our home with the adult kids, multiple cats and one very patient dog.

Truthfully, I am not an early riser. So, it was something of an exception to my daily routine when I was unloading my trunk yesterday morning at 7:15 a.m. to set up a display at one of our Farmers' Markets. I should explain that this took some negotiating. I wasn't selling carrots or crafts, and ...

One of the featured articles today is by Stewart Penn and it is titled "Higher Taxes make for the Happiest People on Earth". In it he points out that citizens in the Scandinavian countries are among the happiest in the world, but they are also the most heavily taxed, and he speculates on whether ...
A broker was dismayed when a brand new real estate office much like his own opened up next door and erected a huge sign which read 'BEST AGENTS.' He was horrified when another competitor opened up on his right, and announced its arrival with an even larger sign, reading 'LOWEST COMMISSIONS.' The ...
I need to put something on here for Mothers' Day. Don't get me wrong, I had a great day visiting with my own Mom and spending time with my beautiful wife who is Mom to our four kids, but I still enjoy the bit of twisted humour in this story.A small boy is sent to bed by his mother...
