All Rivalries Should Be This Friendly

Paul Ziobro has written a wonderful story in the Wall Street Journal about a game of tag that is taking place between UPS and FedEx drivers. While FedEx Corp. and UPS fight for customers and global supremacy in the delivery sector, a friendlier battle is being waged on streets across the U.S. FedEx and UPS … Continue reading All Rivalries Should Be This Friendly

Could This Be a Sign I’ve Matured?

  Short answer - probably not. But... I had to go to the bank today, and since the lobby was not open, I had to use the drive-thru. There were three lanes open, and a car was already in one of the lanes, so I pulled into one of the empty ones. The teller turned … Continue reading Could This Be a Sign I’ve Matured?

I Guess I Came Across as Too Desperate

Another interesting research report from “Study Finds”. This one looks at something I was never good at; perhaps it was the lack of practice. One of the most frequently used dating tactics is “playing hard to get,” or purposely acting cold and even mean toward the person we’re interested in. But, does playing hard to … Continue reading I Guess I Came Across as Too Desperate

My Apologies – This Could Have Been a Great Post

I was in the middle of my workout this morning, when an idea came to me for what I thought would be a great topic for a blog post. I didn’t have any way to write down or record the idea at that moment, but I repeated it to myself a couple of times, and … Continue reading My Apologies – This Could Have Been a Great Post

Bye Bye, Candles and Vases

I finally got around to some Spring Cleaning this week that was obviously long overdue. One of the things that stood out to me while cleaning out one of our corner cabinets is how many candles and flower vases we have accumulated over the years. We have not burned a candle in our house in … Continue reading Bye Bye, Candles and Vases

Now I Know What My Students Must Feel Like

I’ve always said one of my greatest strengths as a teacher is the ability to take a room full of young, energetic students and within minutes have a few of them on the edge of REM sleep. I get it. For some people, accounting is not the most interesting topic to sit and listen to. … Continue reading Now I Know What My Students Must Feel Like

“Quirky” Must Be the WordPress Word of the Day

My post from last night, Music Monday: Revisiting WOTE (Walk Off The Earth), used the word quirky to describe the wonderful Canadian band, Walk Off The Earth. It’s not unexpected that last night’s post is my most viewed post today, with 40 views so far today (and 20 from yesterday). What is surprising is that a … Continue reading “Quirky” Must Be the WordPress Word of the Day

Music Monday: Revisiting WOTE (Walk Off The Earth)

One of the favorite bands I discovered as part of my Music Monday series is Canadian band Walk Off The Earth, often just referred to as WOTE. I first wrote about them back in September of last year: Music Monday – The Quirky, Creative, and Wonderful Music of Walk Off The Earth, and since I liked … Continue reading Music Monday: Revisiting WOTE (Walk Off The Earth)

This Is What All Recipes Look Like to Me

I’m only about 10 years behind on this story that went viral back in 2010. Apparently someone got wind of the U.S. military’s recipe for brownies, which was, to put it mildly, a bit overboard. The specifications/recipe run for 26 pages! Here are some of the highlights: Whole eggs may be liquid or frozen and … Continue reading This Is What All Recipes Look Like to Me

My view count is running behind schedule this week. I am on a streak of 10 straight weeks with at least 3,000 views per week. That averages out to about 429 views per day. Currently, it looks like I will end today with slightly less than 1,600 views so far this week, which mean for … Continue reading This Blog Post Needs to Get a Lot of Views.
