“Hey guys, we have something new on tap today, Angry Orchard Crisp Apple.” “Thanks Cheryl, I’ll have a Yuengling.” “Yeah, as good as that sounds, I’ll have a glass of…” “Meomi. You guys are changeless. You might want to mix it up now and then.” “We prefer reliable.” “My young friend makes a good point… Continue Reading →

If We Were Having a Beer

You would take a sip of whatever you’re drinking, look over at me and say “how many friends of a different race did your parents have?” “Whaaa?” “Seriously, that was one of the questions some bonehead in Seattle wanted your barista to ask you while she was messing up your coffee order.” “Fortunately, I avoided… Continue Reading →

If We Were Having a Beer

The first thing I would tell you, if we were having a beer is the startling discovery I made earlier this week in our office. I don’t use the word “startling” lightly, I really do think this is right up there with “the best way to peel an orange.” Of course, if I tried to… Continue Reading →

Timing is Everything – #1LinerWeds

While the title could be the one-liner for today, I prefer: “You snooze, you lose.” Or perhaps, “The early bird gets the worm.” Or maybe, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.” On the other hand, sometimes, we need a nap.
