 And forward we march into 2021. Where is the 2021 tunnel leading us to?  Will it be good? Will it be like 2020? Can we even get through the tunnel? What if this and what if that? On and on the mind goes.... Chill out!  The good news first!  This tunnel is a really fun tunnel. It leads from one h...
A few days ago, Gary and I worked on our separate business and life plans and had a blast doing so.  We discovered that we had a lot of the same plans and ideas for 2021. The other interesting thing we noticed was, gone were the thoughts of 2020 and how pretty much all plans had to shift dramatic...
A sweet older client sent  me this fun little 'ponder' quiz that I thought many of my fellow AR members would appreciate.  Especially Michael Jacobs our resident ponderer.  Enjoy!     The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actual...
 Not My Circus Not My Monkeys! This has been a fun quote to me for many years.  A few years or so ago I saw a cup with the saying on it and of course had to buy a few of them. Why?  Because a good friend of mine kept getting caught up in other people’s monkey business and went on and on about it....

He used to manage the back office including te...
 Guests will be arriving later.  Presents are wrapped. Barney is taking his afternoon nap.  I've been having fun with family and friends. And Gary has been working on his masterpiece for dinner - Prime Rib.  All I can say is OMG it smells absolutely fabulous.  I can't wait to taste it along with ...
 Happy Penguins!  Every holiday season (except this year) our resident flock of penguins prefer to greet our Black-Tie Party guests out front, all tricked out with their Top Hats.  Sometimes we put down a very long red carpet that reaches to the street and the penguins line the red carpet.  I'll ...
Our outdoor alcove turns into a magical holiday room every year.  It is fun to decorate up the tiny little space differently each year and create a theme. That year we had a Naughty or Nice Party! All of these friends we've known for many years through a networking group.  We're all still close t...
Good Morning Rainers!  Santa gave me a call earlier this morning to let me know some challenge participants are not entering their posts per the rules of the contest.   In order to receive your points Santa says you must be a good girl or boy and follow the rules! Santa knows best! All of your Ho...
