As the Millennial Baby BoomerTM, I like to stay plugged in to all the generations. That includes not only Millennials, but Gen X and Gen Z. Staying on their wavelength, as well as my own, helps me to understand how the world is turning and where we are going. We really are all in this […]
Have You Ever Been Cheugy?
Do you wear cargo shorts or Ugg boots? Are you into Disney anything? Do you post memes like “Live, Laugh, Love” or “Girl Boss”? How about spraying on Axe deodorant? Sound familiar? Then welcome to Cheugyland! If you’re 25-40 years old (Millennial) or 24 and younger (Gen Z), Cheugy is a thing. But everyone can […]
Home Is Where the Heart Is, Office Is Where the Work Is
Imagine if your boss gave you a lie-detector test and the first question you were asked is, “Have you been putting in a full 40 hours a week during the pandemic while working at home?” How would you answer the question, assuming you didn’t want the polygraph machine to show your boss you were […]
To Fix America, Start with Micro-America
So What Are We Doing About It? If you follow the news every day, as I do, you know that half of America hates the other half. Or at least that’s what we are led to believe. Pick a topic, almost any topic, and you can rest assured that there are people ready to pick […]
Women in Charge
March is the month we celebrate women. The 8th is International Women’s Day. The 24th is Equal Pay Day. Every day is Women’s History Month. Having to set aside an entire month to remind us to honor thy mother and wife and sister and daughter, and every other woman, feels like a left-handed compliment of […]
Who’s Your Hero?
How about that Tom Brady. The legend of the star athlete who has won more championships than any other quarterback just keeps growing. This year he added a seventh Super Bowl victory to his collection. Number seven came after he left a perennially dominant powerhouse to join a mediocre also-ran. He single-handedly transformed the once-lowly […]
Our Future Needs to Learn from Our History
It started in China. It ravaged the entire United States for months upon months. It devastated families who lost loved ones of all ages. It was a violently divisive political year that fueled racial animus and even polarized Americans into mask-wearers versus mask-deniers. It caused the country’s commander-in-chief to consider political ambition above public health. […]
Mentoring America’s Future
I bet you’ve never heard of Daniel Cameron. I hadn’t either until starting to write this blog. But in the near future his name might become more familiar to Americans who follow politics. Perhaps he’ll be almost as familiar one day as Mitch McConnell or Bernie Sanders. Those two high-profile senators have taken the young(er) […]
Different factions in the United States of America don’t agree on all kinds of things. That’s nothing new. One thing we all can agree on, though, is that 2020 has been a year for the ages. Especially for the younger ages — from Gen X to Gen Z. This is one of those unforgettable periods […]
Are You Ready to Rock the New Roaring ‘20s?!
Are you tired of the isolation? Aren’t we all! But let’s face it. Before we can get our regular lives back, there still is a while to go. It will probably be years before things start to feel “normal” again. First, we need to have an effective vaccine within easy reach of everybody, as easy […]
