Easter: A time for new beginnings

      2 Comments on Easter: A time for new beginnings

So, other holidays seem to have a grateful theme to them. Easter seems like more of a time to be hopeful, a time to start over. OK, Easter has always been about candy for me. Those Cadbury mini-eggs and cream eggs are addictive! But, seriously, I know most of us have totally forgotten any New Year’s resolutions we made, the… Read more »

Career women and career men

      2 Comments on Career women and career men

Is part of that title weird to you?  Well, the whole title should be weird to you.  Why do I say that?  Because I read an interesting article on Forbes.com about how it’s OK for women to not want to be a CEO.

Is it just me or is downtown Sacramento fairly empty? On my usual walk around Capitol Mall, I passed maybe 5 people. Normally, I’m annoyed by masses of people walking 4 abreast, bike riders who think the sidewalk is the road and the flow of traffic is similar to that in the United Kingdom, and a horde of gardeners with… Read more »

Holiday Fever, Do you have it?

      1 Comment on Holiday Fever, Do you have it?

Is it just me or is anyone else having a tough time concentrating? I go into the office and I just want to listen to Christmas music, eat cookies and shop for presents. All of my Christmas shopping is done and I have work to do! What is wrong with me? I’ve got visions of sugar plums dancing in my… Read more »
