I hate automated answering services when you call up a business. The last one I called I heard the computer generated, very calm female voice say, “State your problem after the beep” and then 2 seconds later there’s a beep....then she gets back on and says, “That is no...

It’s time to celebrate the New Year!! Every year you have to decide how to celebrate, and it all comes down to your level of enthusiasm for it versus your ability to stay up past midnight. When you’re really young, you look forward to staying up past midnight…it’s a hu...

Went on another business trip with Russ...I think he’s not going to ask me to go anymore.  It was in April in Orlando, so this time Lauren and Thomas wanted to go...Mike couldn’t take off work for a week unfortunately.  Gone are the Mickey Mouse days and putting them o...

Considering I’m a sixth-generation resident of Susquehanna County whose ancestors came straight from Ireland, naturally I have a lot of green in my closet for St. Patrick’s Day, “Wearin’ o’ the Green” tradition. Unfortunately, most all of the green clothes I bought ove...
