I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about cloud computing. The buzz is growing, so I started to dig into it to see where this cloud thing is going. Seems that it’s not such a new concept as what I had thought. I actually was faced with a “cloud computing” choice a couple […]

Sue and I did a free webinar this afternoon, “Questions You Have About Blogging.” It was an opportunity for people to ask questions and have us answer.

Ebb and Flow of Energy


WOW! The blogging challenge is over, and yet here I sit, late at night, writing a blog post. I’m actually physically tired today as well as a little brain-tired. Just like the ocean tides ebb and flow, so does our work and our energy. We have to learn to recognize where we are in […]

A New Word – Kaizen


Anyone who knows me knows that I love words and I am absolutely thrilled when I find a new, useful word. This happened yesterday. It’s a Japanese word – Kaizen. It means “gradual and orderly continuous improvement.” WOW! What a meaning.
