I’m a tech geek. No doubt about it.
In my job compiling the daily newsletter for Lehigh Valley Business, one of my favorite parts of the job is finding the “out of the ordinary” story that wraps up the bottom of the email.
I'm 44. That's old. I know it.
A happy ending to a sad snack food story should also mean an end to a record-breaking comment thread.

This year under the Christmas tree, my husband truly surprised me. Really he did.
Monday morning I awoke with a panic. The sound of the wind blowing outside was a roar worse than I've heard in a long time. After freezing temperatures and heavy snow in recent days, I envisioned the worst – heavy snow and blowing winds and...

Delivery drones? Could they be a thing of the future?
We, as humans, weren’t meant to be cubicle dwellers. Our bodies simply weren’t designed for sitting for eight straight hours typing away at a computer. Therefore we quickly get tired and need a pick-me-up, or two – or three –...
Kids, the word for today is “selfie.”
This past weekend, the dog I've been fostering for nearly three months got adopted. While I miss the little schnook something awful, I'm very happy to know she found a great forever home with someone who intends to spoil her rotten.
This blog is going to be a real game changer. It's going to maximize our synergies to bolster the bottom line between our vertical business silos.
You know the saying – about what you make “you” and “me” when you “assume.”
While the bathroom is generally considered to be the most dangerous room in the home, there's little doubt that the most dangerous room in the workplace is the kitchen.
One day in the fifth grade, my class apparently had been a little too rowdy. To disperse the pent-up energy, my teacher – Mrs. Palmer – had us stand up and walk around the classroom a couple of times.
I'm going to take a week off from updating folks on the rebuilding of my house – partly because not much progress has been made, but mostly because it's expo week.
In week two of the “truck through my house” saga, I had to choose a contractor to perform the all important task of patching the gaping hole in what was left of my home.

It was a Thursday evening like any other. My husband and I were heading out to the local watering hole to catch some pre-season Eagles football. We didn't know the horror that was about to befall us.
So you want to get an article about your company in the paper. It doesn't have to be Lehigh Valley Business – although that one is CLEARLY the best. Any paper will do.

I am a non-smoker. Even if I wasn't horribly allergic to the stuff, I find smoking to be a pretty nasty habit and have lost enough people to lung cancer to have no love lost between the Marlboro Man and me.
I have a nine-mile commute to work each day. In different circumstances, it would probably take me 15 minutes to make the trip each way, but it doesn’t.
