(Black and) Blue Christmas

Gather ’round, boys and girls! Here’s a true story about Christmases when I was a little girl. Back then, Santa brought toys without warning labels and the phrase “Buyer Beware” meant someone would get hurt before sundown on Christmas Day, and that someone was probably you. In those days, no one had a right to a non-hostile work environment –…

Celebrating the Change of Seasons

Outside, the wind is howling and the leaves are flying off the trees in a colorful blizzard. The first true cold snap of the season is on the way (and two hours overdue according to the forecasts, but I’ll cut the meteorologists some slack – can’t win ’em all). It was 80 degrees today, and I’ve got my flip-flops lined…

Giving Thanks for the Memories (and Making More)
