I was leaving the gym this morning when I encountered a trio on the elevator. The young man looking down at sandal-clad feet said to me “my mother has bunions too.” His mother immediately shushed him and turned to apologize as I laughed and said and “she probably doesn’t like hers any more than I do mine, does she?” The mother said so sorry, he has autism and just says things. My immediate reaction was there’s no need to apologize or explain; the beauty of our America is our diversity.

<p>I recently spoke with a chapter volunteer leader who’s willing to give it a try but about ready to throw it all in. Do you want to know why? Well it seems that the bar for getting on the chapter leadership is how many years you’ve put in not performance. When she looks around the table, she sees low performance and hears all about how there’s this issue and that issue.</p>

To split or not to split infinitives … it’s a serious controversy! Not really, but there are people that are adamant that you should never split an infinitive. Say thanks to the grammar gods that the creators of Star Trek ignored the rule – because To Go Boldly just doesn’t have the same zing!

It’s the first Monday of the New Year and many of us have headed back to work, school or whatever routine that is part of our daily lives. It is also the day when we start getting serious about those New Year’s resolutions we so eagerly made just last week.  And it's the day that marks the beginning of the end because we all know we’ll scrap the whole resolution thing – if not most of it – by March.

But don’t despair. We can make it past March if we are just a bit more creative with some fun thrown in.
