I Think Purple Is My New Color!

Friday, April 5th, 2013

About a month ago I walked into a conference and the first person I saw was my good friend S.S. who asked, “Where is your red tie?” I laughed a little because that comment came before a hello, how are you or what’s going on?

S.S. knows me well and I do like to wear red ties and for some reason, especially in New York. Not this trip! This trip was all about new ties and a new color. That color is purple. Perhaps it is just a phase I am going through but I really like ties that have purple in them. They seem to be striking and have the flexibility to go with a number of suits. Perhaps I have gone overboard but the last ten ties I have bought have had purple in them!

  • Do you like purple ties?
  • Have you recently added a new color to your wardrobe?

I look forward to reading your comments.

Seriously Mom & Dad, It Is Time To Update A Few Things…

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Last month I had a GREAT time visiting my parents in Florida. I was there with my kids and we had an absolute ball. The trip was filled with laughter and a few funny moments – one of which was my beautiful daughter picking out a movie and asking me to put it on for her. She picked out “Beauty and the Beast” so who could resist? As she handed me the movie, I started to chuckle a little bit.

My daughter looked at me odd and asked, “What’s so funny?”

I responded, “Well, doesn’t this movie look a little different than the movies we have at home?”

She said, “Yes, but I thought it was special since we are at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.”

Well the special she was referring too was a VHS! Yes, a VHS movie – not a DVD!

I can’t tell you the last time I put in a VHS movie.

Of course this got me thinking about other items around my parents’ house that is “old and experienced” technology. I need to check, but I think down the cape they might have a rotary phone! Please stop laughing… A little bit…

Ok, here is my question:

  • What technology do your parents or friends have that needs to be replaced and updated?

I really look forward to reading your comments.
