More than being smart is required in this day and age and especially if you happen to work remotely, rely on a very high EQ.

Daily improvement is the strategy of making constant, incremental improvements each and every day in order to feel and achieve impressive long-term gains. While many see it as a short-term event, it is much more powerful when an entire workforce engages in daily improvement efforts and stays focused.

We mailed the grandkids presents and hope they arrived by today, but the way USPS is operating these days, one never knows.

On the heels of a #NASA quietly stellar year, from the James Webb Space Telescope to the Perseverance rover comes this comedy.

My wife and I watched Netflix's Don't Look Up, from writer/director Adam McKay, of Network fame, which features a star-studded cast playing out a satire about the end of the world.

Resolutions are never kept and overrated, so we decided to offer our list of solutions for every possibility that may arise in 2022.

The pandemic may dominate global attention in 2022, along with the #USA Democracy struggling and the #Republican party race to the bottom with its continuing disgraceful actions.

Happiness starts with telling yourself the truth, even when it hurts.

Make sure you always have your own money.

Americans may wish to seriously consider canceling all their New Year’s plans: Omicron and Delta are coming to crash your party.

The problem is that The party will go on, because not enough of US care. Public health officials are warning party animals to stay on a short leash because #COVID is still out on the prowl and ready to howl.

Confucius was the first teacher in China who wanted to make education broadly available and was instrumental in establishing the art of teaching as a vocation. He also established ethical, moral, and social standards that formed the basis of a way of life known as Confucianism, which is not a religion, as much as it is a global philosophy.

Latinos make up over half of the USA population. This is reflected in larger cities, small towns, neighborhoods, and prairies.

Also, the culture and use of language are being woven into the American fabric and melting into a Spanglish mixed salad.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through la casa,
Not a creature was stirring, I wondered, que pasa?

I was hanging the stockings with mucho cuidado,
In hopes that old Santa would feel obligado,

To bring all the children, both buenos y malos,
A nice batch of dulces and other regalos.

All We want for Christmas is that our friends, neighbors, and family members are vaccinated and receive the booster shots ASAP.

Is it right or wrong to pursue personal happiness? Are Christians supposed to be joyful even when surrounded by suffering? Does happiness make us better people, or does it just feel good? 

News headlines: Christmas can go ahead and get tested before you go to see and gather with anyone this holiday season.

Thanks… We have received many cards in the mail and expect more to arrive in the next few days.

Scrooge aka Murdoch

How well does FOX Rupert Murdoch compare to Ebenezer Scrooge, the protagonist of Charles Dickens' 1843 A Christmas Carol?

At the beginning of the novella, Scrooge is cold-hearted miserable. The tale of his redemption by three spirits has become a defining tale of the Christmas holiday in the English-speaking world. Scrooge is a mean and miserly person.
