Paper or Cloud?

June 28, 2013

Unless you live under a rock, you most likely have read the front page news about a 29 year old computer technician named Edward Snowden, a whistleblower of epic proportions. 

The hot topic? Cybersecurity, leaks, and intelligence secrets.  People watching people; people getting your data; people listening in on your conversations- whether you like it or not.

Father's Day

June 21, 2013

Conversation Starters

June 14, 2013

Lucy had what appears to have been a stroke.

My Bucket Runneth Over

May 3, 2013

Have you ever experienced that uneasy sensation in your physical being and the rattling going on in your mind? Those uneasy signs of being completely overwhelmed?

Do you ever go to sleep at night and worry yourself into a frenzy about all the things that are happening to you and to those around you knowing you don't have any control over what's going on?

Is your to-do list a mile long and your inbox overflowing?
