The straw that breaks a camel’s back is significant only to the camel.
Facebook, Pretty Please?
My poor Facebook friends. I put up with their incessant quiz results. They get to put up with my whining about it. One Facebook friend of mine (Hi, David!) questioned whether Facebook is even aware of the issue. Ha! Okay, time to make sure. Do I get bonus points for asking on Twitter? I said…
Big Three: We Don’t Need to Compete
Don’t forget to read the fine print. And I’d apologize for the language, but it’s mild compared to how I feel. It’s like buying a car, but without getting the car.

Nordstrom: No More Pianists
Nordstrom will no longer have live piano music in its stores, claiming its customers “compliment canned music more often than live musicians.” Ignoring for the moment Nordstrom’s laughable excuse for wanting to save money, this is sad news. My children take piano lessons. Their piano highlight of the year is to play at Nordstrom during…
