Photo of the Day – Bright Chihuly Bowls

Another photo from the Chihuly Garden & Glass Gallery in Seattle, Washington. One of my favorite parts of the exhibit was these bowls, only lit by bright white light, showed off Dale Chihuly’s imagination and talent with coloured glass. Missed a photo of the day? Check out the entire album on flickr and consider liking…

I Want You To Help Me!

Many times these last couple of days, I’ve seen people scream out into the Twittersphere, begging for customer service, expecting to get their problems solved, when help is just a phone call away. Twitter isn’t always going to help you. Sure, the best companies may recognize that twitter is a quick-response option to small customer…

Quote of the Day – Betty White on Marriage

Today is Betty White‘s 90th birthday. Amongst her many accomplishments, they include 7 acting Emmy awards and the longest span of time between Emmy nominations, and the oldest person ever to be nominated, (she’s nominated this year.)

“Public” Relation….Ship…

The real title of this post is: “Relationships in the age of social media.” I’ve been thinking about this post for a while now. I’ve seen some relationships flourish and flounder from my front row seat on Facebook and Twitter. To get the full perspective we should back up a bit. In the 50’s, you…

Under Every Rock

I’ve been thinking about this post for a while. I spend a great deal of time on Facebook & Twitter. I am a social creature by nature. But I also spend time on various other social networks, what I find most amazing and appealing about them is how often I am engaged on them, in…

…Like the wind

So, if you’ve followed me on Twitter, Facebook, anywhere, you’ve heard me, no doubt, lamenting my decision to run a 5k. Well, I did it last weekend. I just wanted to share some pictures from it. Thanks everyone for your words of encouragement. What I was struck by, was a couple of things, First, there…

I publish a Quote of the Day to my facebook page, almost every day. I pick them by hand and I look for something silly, profound, or just plain interesting.

My Momma Always Told Me…

I was thinking recently about all the advice I’ve ever received both personally and professionally. There is one thing that has always stuck with me; from my mom, who said, “If you want it bad enough, you’ll work hard enough to get it.” I’ve been thinking about that for the last couple of days and…

Recap: Sarah & Wendy

I can’t believe I haven’t written my post about this. At the beginning of the month, I mentioned that my friends @SarahMSalter and @WeightWhat (Wait? What?) were coming to town. I can’t believe I haven’t recapped that for Y’all (That’s for you Sarah). First. It was a blast. I haven’t laughed that hard or that…

Friendship…

It’s funny, I love Twitter & Facebook, I love the ability to keep up with friends at my own pace and as I am able; however, life sometimes becomes really busy and its sometimes hard to keep up with those who don’t reside on the interwebs. I know, in this day and age it seems…
