With that said, starting in late November when school ball starts up the opportunity to work increases […]

Ch.. ch… ch… Changes…

If you visit this site you may have noted the following Look and feel is pretty tired. I’ve been doing this site for the better part of nine years and haven’t changed it. Nine years might as well be nine hundred years for a website. Stability has been an issue. A friend has hosted on […]

Why bother with my job search in December?

December is not a big hiring month, and I’m busy getting ready for the holidays. I won’t get any interviews, and I certainly won’t have any offers so why bother?

Earlier that morning we lost a husband, a son, father, uncle, friend. It still doesn’t seem real. I am thankful for the years we had and it […]


Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of the death of my close friend and colleague Jeff McMahill. It doesn’t seem like it’s been a year, and I’m grateful that I can still hear his laugh in my head. I’m especially grateful for the lessons he taught me both before and after he was diagnosed. His wife […]


A caller to a podcast I listen was upset about being passed over for a promotion because the owner of his company hired his nephew and put him in a job that the owner had promised the caller. He said the nephew wasn’t at all qualified for the position and was looking for advice. The […]

White Supremacists Need Not Apply

Earlier this month Cole White, an appropriately named white supremacist, traveled across the country and took part in the now infamous rally that resulted in the tragic death of Heather Heyer. Pictures of these bigots flooded social media and someone recognized Mr White and his place of employment – a hot dog stand in Berkeley California. I’m […]
