Weight Loss – Week 14 Clearly I’m in a holding pattern.  Gained again this week – but have faithfully gone to Zumba Saturday mornings, today included.

A Glass Ceiling in Social Media?

A Glass Ceiling in Social Media?

I have spent the past 15 years working in a male dominated profession.   During that time I’ve had a front row seat to the gender bias surrounding wage and opportunity differences offered to employees in a corporate environment ~ aka the glass ceiling.   Ultimately the glass ceiling to me is a reflection of men getting…More of this…

Love in the Midst of a Tsunami

Love in the Midst of a Tsunami

Did you see these two dogs that were victims of the Tsunami in Japan earlier this week?  It was shown on Yahoo.  The bond between the two is obvious just through their actions.  No words needed.
