Notes from Steve

Every time the show Hoarders is on TV I watch it. I think for validation purposes. “If they and their house are that bad, I have nothing to worry about” I tell myself. In reality, I have nothing to worry about anyway – I don’t have hoarding tendencies but sometimes...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

I am doing ok. I have only cried twice today…so far. Once was this morning when senior leaders presented me with a bracelet that had Jack’s signature engraved on it. It’s beautiful, but I want to be holding the hand that wrote it. We used to call him “puppy paws”...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

Uber is a competitor of taxicabs. Interesting thing about the Uber model is that it is pure capitalism combined with social media. So – you need a cab in a large city? No more flagging down a car – Tap your Smartphone, an Uber comes, and you’ve already put in...

Amy's Reflections

We are in the world to support one another. ― Lailah Gifty Akita This past week I hit my breaking point and had a meltdown. With the hectic pace that this time of the year brings, it is difficult to keep up with everything and continue to smile through it...
