Is there a guidebook for people who are deciding whether to shame or not?
- •Parent of 3 year old at Cincinnati zoo. Shame.
- •Parents of Omar Mateen. No shame, yet.
- •Affluenza Texas teen. Shame. Deserved. She was complicit.
- •Stop referring to every new company as the "uber" or "netflix" of something.
- •Stop crowdsourcing judicial sentences or verdicts.
- •Stop comparing sports teams of today to sports teams of yesteryear.
- •I don't have time for your petty grievances.
- •I don't need your opinion on every freaking news story.
- •It is and has been a massive time suck. Life is too short.
I do lots of presentations at work and at conferences. I used to be scared to death the audience woyld think I was a poser or fraud. my time in grad school at the Conway School gave me all the tools I need to give effective presentations and have fun doing it.
- •Don't bombard with meaningless facts, figures, and percentages.
- •Do tell stories and personalize them.
- •Don't talk TO the audience. Talk WITH them. Ask them questions.
For 7 or so years, this town was home...or at least a stop on this journey. during that stop I discovered some amazing food.
- •Homeland Dairy - their milk, the butter, and, definitely the ice cream. I always looked forward to getting our milk on Saturdays from Bryan at the Curb Market.
- •Neese's Bacon. Second to none in my book.
- •The "Homemade Biscuits" from Town & Country Market. The market itself is a gem, selling mostly local products, but them biscuits are the best since Grandma's.
partial list, of course. these are just top of mind.
