What’s for Dinner? Conversations with a Colleague

I have a colleague whom I adore, admire, and try to emulate. Not in a creepy way, but in a “she’s so good, I’m inspired to do better” kind of way. She’s positive, energetic, upbeat and optimistic.

Hoo Hoo Boo Boo

Hoo Hoo Boo Boo WARNING: Some of you may be squeamish. You should avert your eyes or put on Netflix and just casually scroll through this while you decide between Orange is the New Black or Daredevil. This is not about what you think. Owls. You think this is about owls and there you’d be wrong.  From …
