This year may have started out well for some, but ended not so well for most.  The tentacles of this pandemic changed our lives in so many ways.  We had to get creative in order to survive, literally. I kept hearing the word pivot, mostly from companies in terms of their business models. Early on, as the cases started to rise at alarming rates, the mandate came down for businesses to close that were not deemed essential, to try to stop the spread of the virus. This caused a cascade of issues mostly related to businesses closing, at first temporarily, [...]

Well here we are again, approaching Thanksgiving with thoughts of turkey, dressing, pies, parades and football. It’s a great holiday that enables us to give thanks for the many blessings in our lives, to share a feast prepared by family and friends, and perhaps to nap after lapsing into a turkey coma. I always wear pants that stretch to allow me to eat, eat, eat, and then eat some more! But I digress. Thanksgiving also marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season and retailers have been advertising Black Friday deals for a while now. It seems that the stores open earlier [...]
