Pear Harvest

0 Each August for the past 6 years that I have lived in the Rogue Valley, my mind has turned to the pear harvest. What is pear harvest you may ask? It is one of the highlights of my year.

Begin As You Mean To Go On

0 In the nitty-gritty of your business life, you can lose track of things. Things like: Why am I doing this anyway? Whose idea was it to use that software? How are we supposed to ‘scale up’?

Good Neighbors

0 “Good fences make good neighbors.” – from “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost During the long, hot days of summer there’s more time to work and play outside and more opportunity to interact with neighbors. Mostly our lives are enhanced by this close contact. Sometimes, however, this interaction isn’t always so neighborly. Sharing fences can cause stress and total exasperation. Over…

This Joint Is Jumpin’ – Definitely!

0 That was the headline of Roberta Kent’s review in the Mail Tribune. “AIN’T MISBEHAVIN’, the high-energy song-and-dance revue at Oregon Cabaret Theatre for the summer, is a joyful tribute to the music of Thomas “Fats” Waller, the exuberant jazz pianist and composer of the 1920s and ‘30s. (Director) Jim Giancarlo has again assembled a remarkably talented cast of singers and…

The New Anti-Aging Treatment- Microcurrent

Truth in the Garden

0 When I first became a contractor I quickly realized that the word “contractor” and the word “truth” were considered an oxymoron by many. It seemed to me people automatically believed that contractors were not only expensive but dishonest and not forthcoming. Perhaps that is not true for all clients but it seemed to be the standard I was introduced to…

Know Your Interest, Tame Your Position

0 There is a Russian folktale concerning the fate of two goats that met each other at the midpoint of a narrow bridge. Each demanded that the other retreat in order to let it pass. Each refused, standing its ground. Well, as things often do in these circumstances, the conflict escalated. Finally a fight broke out and the goats ended up…
