We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.

Ray Bradbury

One of *those* people…

“Oh… you’re one of *those* people.” I keep hearing that phrase. It inevitably pops up when I’m asked about what I do, and where I started out, and what a long, strange trip it’s been. One of *those* people, in this case, means...

So long, and thanks for all the… well, you know.

Douglas Adams died yesterday… a heart attack. He was just 49. All I can think to say is… thank-you. For Arthur Dent, for Marvin, and Zaphod and Dirk; for the dolphins and white mice and Life, the Universe and Everything. You revealed to us all the ultimate...

Gack.

Despite my very best efforts, today is turning out to be an episode of South Park.

Easter Dinner

I’ve been talking with Mom about Easter dinner. I want to bring a roasted rabbit. She doesn’t seem to think it’s such a good idea. Something about the...

Spring!

Ah! Spring! In Kansas, you know the season has turned when you get the first hailstorm. Yeah, it’s ice, but it’s a new kind of ice. And, of course, the dog wants to go for a walk in...

The Day After…

Vacation’s over! Here we are, a few days into the next millennium (the real one, not some phony, made-for-television version) and oddly enough, it feels like nothing more than the day after...

Call it, The Santa Wager

At some point in my childhood I faced the decision of whether to believe in Santa Claus, even in the face of a growing body evidence to the contrary. I chose to believe. That belief may have been simple, as in “Of course there is. Mommy said so and besides look...

Happiness is…

Happiness is… working from home on a snow day. …and a warm puppy.

Giddy

It’s a definite maybe for snow in Kansas City tonight. Jessie, the abominable snow-pup, is giddy with anticipation. Me,...

Be Heard.

Be heard. My wife and I prove the theory that opposites attract. As such, we often take a different view of things political. I won’t go into the details of who supports what… that’s not important here. Suffice it to say that we’ve often...

Busy, busy, busy…

Busy, busy, busy…I’m still populating the Articles area, most recently with a blast from the past, circa 1987 or so. I could claim that it represents something like an argument for customer experience… the fact is, though, it’s just for fun....

Happy Halloween.

In the office today there are a number of people who are dressed in Halloween costumes. There are at least two others that I thought were dressed in Halloween costumes, but I’ve since decided that no… they just dress that way. 😉

What’s in a name, part deux.

One intrepid reader (maybe the only reader) asks, “So what’s a bloggle?” A fair question. When naming this site I tried to convey it’s purpose, it’s attitude, and something about the atmosphere in which it lives. It’s purpose?...

What’s in a name?

Last week, after a three month effort, Anderson Consulting announced they’d settled on a new name… Accenture. [Rhymes with adventure.] The organization is planning to spend as much as $170 million in an aggressive global re-branding campaign....
