You’re Welcome!

I’m a big baby about going to the doctor. I recently had to bribe myself into going. One particular doctor is in Springfield, so I asked Big Al if we couldn’t stop by a certain restaurant after my appointment. He agreed. It’s one of his favorite stops; mine too both for the food as well as watching the behavior of a specific waitress. Before that last statement settles in and reads as incredibly creepy, let me point out I’m obviously not the only one. She has an entire restaurant of… Read more You’re Welcome!


“Hey Lori!” I heard a girl yell across the parking lot. I turned to see an old friend coming toward me. We hugged and talked excitedly back and forth. Within minutes she laughed and pointed to my hand. “I see you’re still using the same notebook.” I’m a bit of a gadget geek. I love my iPods and now my computer tablet. I’ve had many versions of PDAs and electronic organizers. Regardless of how organized and synced across various platforms I am, I always write my most important notes for… Read more Thumb-worthy

The marriage of technical and paper notes

I’m a techno-nerd. There’s no denying it. I love my iPhone. I’m deeply attached to my laptop. My Kindle accompanies me everywhere. I was introduced earlier this year to the Evernote application.

Having just described my… Read more The marriage of technical and paper notes

My True LinkedIn Skills

Do you remember when LinkedIn, self-described as “the world’s largest professional network on the Internet” was hacked? A Russian techno-thug managed to obtain 6.5 million of the over 161 million users’ passwords and uploaded them to a website. For a couple of days news groups that cover social media and people who are active on LinkedIn were busy updating their information and encouraging their contacts to do the same. Of course I was right in the middle of it. As I’ve written previously, after my email hacking experience last year,… Read more My True LinkedIn Skills

Photographing The Way We Live

New Year’s resolutions when followed out for a time have a wonderful way of reordering our personal experience. Since agreeing with myself that I would “knit the sky” each evening, I have both spent more time looking up than looking down and been able to carve out just a few minutes each evening for my favorite pastime. This past Monday the sky was a beautiful shade of almost perfect blue. I kept being caught up in the vastness of the space above. I had great spans of time in which… Read more Photographing The Way We Live
