But I don't think she ever blabbed because she wanted to maintain her rep. Also was never on a project team with her. If I was, I'd imagine it would be a very awkward day-to-day situation. If anything, I'd clearly lay out the boundaries for the...

I tend to catch any I find including venomous ones. There really is no reason to fear most snakes and having them around tends to be a good thing. I just don't believe it. Sure the snakes eat the mice and frogs but eventually something will show up to eat the snake and before you know...
Don't let a couple hundred bucks interfere with your goals. Years ago an organization I had been targeting for a long time had a recruitment road show. I first flew (at my own expense) to San Francisco to interview. Two weeks later, after being turned down in San Francisco, I flew (again at my own expense) to Washington DC to interview with the same folks. The look on the guy's face was priceless. He asked me, "didn't we just interview you in San Francisco?"

Ann Veronica is about the plight of women prior to WWI and the protagonist's effort to live the life she wants despite those social restrictions. Not a bad read really. 6. Chasing Life: New...

A hero doesn't come home and tell his friends about the time he had to recover body parts from the...
4. True Compass: A Memoir. Written by Edward Kennedy. I am always a bit skeptical when reading autobiographies. I know that if I were writing my own life story it would not be balanced. However, I really enjoyed this book. Ted Kennedy wrote it without trying to lead the reader to any predetermined conclusion. I especially enjoyed his description of his childhood and what it was like growing up in the Kennedy household and, later, as each of the Kennedy sons entered...
