It has been longer than six months since my last blog. I confess, I have been as astounded, shocked, scared, and as surprised as any of us. With no answers, no insight, nothing to offer, I remained silent. In turn, I was impressed with all the new bloggers and podcast/webcast offerings

2018 was a productive year. I hope that your 2018 was a good one; one full of health, happiness and prosperity. My format from October, though brief and written more in the form of “Soundbites” rather than “deep content”, seemed to go over well.
