Best Friends: “Extremely strong interpersonal ties with each other.”  This is Webster’s definition.   Mine is two people with comparable hearts whose minds and convictions strike a balance.  Do you have a best friend?   I know we would all say that our spouses are our very best friends.

I have had some setbacks in my professional career over the past few months and I guess it is only natural that I would ask myself some hard questions.

It took me over two hours to clean out my fridge and freezer last week. I do not want to talk about the level of disgusting that was going on in there.  After I emptied every drawer and threw away unrecognizable leftovers, I went to the grocery store for the first time in months. I would run into the store for a loaf of bread, milk or a...
