Boy, it is so easy to get caught up in all of the holiday hoopla … especially with what seems to be a much (much) shorter time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Where the heck have the last few weeks gone? I feel like I’ve been in a mad scramble not only keeping on top of.. read more →

I thought this would be a good opportunity to share some tips on two home office areas that seems to get a lot of people locked up.  I.. read more →
