How Do You Do Me Time?

I have been in tech hell this week.  I won’t bore you with the gory details, but let me just throw out a few terms that I have been dealing with: DNS, DMARC, firewalls, 404 error codes, 502 error codes, and spam filters. Now if you’re tech-y, these might not seem so scary. But for…

Golden Globes

I haven’t been to the Golden Globes since my last year as a television executive in 2016. That was the year when “Mr. Robot” won Best Drama Series, and I was honored when the show’s creator, Sam Esmail, gave me a shout-out. The Globes is a wonderful mixture of the most celebrated stars from television, movies, and music, and…

What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?

Whether it is losing weight, getting healthier, finding love, getting a new job, or some other kind of change.  But here’s the thing, I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions!…

How Was Your 2023?

As this year comes to an end, it is natural to look forward to the upcoming new year. The promise of a fresh start.  But if we have had any hardships over the past year, our focus can easily go to the things that went wrong.  We tend to chalk it all up as a “bad year.”…
