  • Showing thanks to employees

    As a student, I typically despised collaborative projects. Obsessed with getting good grades, I would inevitably end up doing most of the work myself because no one else in the group approached it with the same level of intensity that I did.

    I began each collaboration with high hopes, helping to divy up all the workload to group members and establishing deadlines for sections of the project. Invariably, deadlines weren’t met, work was shoddy and my streak of straight A’s was in jeopardy.

  • Walks, talks in cemeteries to remain remembered

    I snapped a picture of the black, wrought iron gate and sent it to my family along with the text, “Exploring this old cemetery.”

    My aunt responded, “Why?”

    My question is, why would anyone not want to explore an old cemetery?

    I first spied it while riding my bike through the countryside with hubby. Back during our dating years, he readily explored cemeteries with me. Together, we would point out unusual tombstones, read inscriptions and make observations.

    Two stories

    Two weeks ago I read in The Oldham Era that the school Superintendent could not manage and needed another increase in taxes. School systems seem to have a hard time finding capable managers. The next time you have an increase in expenses just go to your boss and tell him/her that you are just going to have to start taking from the company. It works for the school superintendent.
