This [...]
A while back I was doing some work with my Treo cell phone; it is a PDA type phone that keeps my contacts, does email, and has a calendar. I was pushing  too many buttons at once when suddenly it “locked up”. It stopped working; it no longer was doing what I was asking it [...]
When people enjoy something they willingly and naturally tell others about it.  For example, where did you hear about the last good book that you read, or why did you visit that new restaurant? In some cases because someone else who had read the book before you enjoyed it and told you about it, or [...]

In the multivariable equation of raising good teenagers, one of the things that will create a bond of affection between teen and parent is good memories. Everyone’s hearts are endeared to people and places when positive memories are associated with them. Over the years Teri and I have purposely built many enduring memories into the [...]
