Not my usual weekend post. Just thoughts and good vibes sent to France. It is sad to me how terrible acts bring out the best in people, here and around the world. I wish these people were more visible all of the time.
Thanksgiving is coming. Most people and families have lots of traditions that go along with special holidays like Thanksgiving. For me, on Thanksgiving I like to watch the WKRP In Cincinnati video clip about the “turkey drop.” I will post it here on Thanksgiving day, again this year.
Arlo Guthrie recently appeared in our area (I was not able to attend, but I wanted to). His most famous song, of course, is Alice’s Restaurant. On Thanksgiving 1965 he visited a friend, Alice Brock and her husband at their home, a church in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and did them a favor by taking out their garbage. What happened during that thoughtful event inspired his famous 18-minute song.
My friend, Bonnie Buol Ruszczyk, President of bbr marketing, and her team love to help their CPA firm clients GET AHEAD. Perhaps it is time to explore some outside marketing assistance to help you, so you can help your own clients get AHEAD.
Thus, their creative, humorous and unique Halloween Card. I love it!
Here is a picture of their card that I received in the mail last week. How on earth did they end up in that frightful situation?
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
OK, it does go somewhere if you consider ending up where you started as going somewhere. It’s called the Den Uendelige Bro, which means “infinite bridge”—a fitting moniker for a structure that leads you round and round in circles.
I hope you do not have an “infinite firm” – one that leads you round and round and you get nowhere!
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
Do you know about the current stress reliever? It’s coloring books for adults!
I loved it when my son, and then my grandkids, were very young and I had the opportunity to color with them. I have always loved coloring books and coloring, in general. Maybe it’s what led me to painting in water colors and oils as an adult.
Anyway, walk into any craft store or book store and you will see tables filled with these coloring books with designs of all types and shapes targeted to adults who need some “clear your head” time.
Here’s my current project: (Lighten-Up and color, it’s the weekend!)
I have always loved poetry. This time of year, one of my childhood favorites comes to mind. Here’s the first stanza of one of James Whitcomb Riley’s most famous poems. Click here to read it all – it will certainly lighten-up your weekend.
When I received a copy in the mail, it made my day. It begins with, “you’ll never believe what my client said…” – continues with “And then my CPA said to me…” closes with “What she said….”. It will make you smile.
