Hello Alaska! (Part 3 of “How we made a loser year end like a winner with trips to Hawaii and Alaska”)


This is the third in a series. Welcome back if you have read the first two blogs and for those who haven’t, you may wish to first check out Part 1 and 2 here.
Now to continue the story…

Nothing seemed more apropos on how to end a year that was “not stellar” than to see the Northern Lights. So, Alaska was the third of three stops on our journey to throw 2016 a “good-bye party”. By now we are “supercharged” to switch gears from being in a tropical climate to one that could be freezing.

Meeting Professional WWE Women’s Wrestler- Lisa Marie Varon


It is the most unlikely of pairings! A social media correspondent expecting to just snap a few photos at an ESPY gift suite and a professional woman’s wrestler. But, somehow we bonded over a few laughs, high fives and realizing that life is good after your 30’s (and for me a bit beyond that.) Lisa Marie Varon is a class act. I instantly thought she was fun, funny and truly engaging.

Am I too old for social media? Survey for those who dare to answer


I am getting the sense that my “mature” demographic is not necessarily the one desired by brands, unless it is for medical equipment or pharmaceuticals. Maybe I am just having a bit of “post- birthday blues”. But, in all seriousness, lately, I have had more than one overt signal that I am too old to be a viable media specialist. I won’t lie – that stings a wee bit.

Should I write the post or not?


Recently, I have become a bit agitated by events going on around me. Our political arena seems to be topsy-turvy. Some people in my sphere are not making the best of choices and seem to be posting their very strong opinions and photos carelessly and without regard to whether or not they are experts in a field or being sensitive to the feelings of others. Some things are just not making sense.
