Final Thought: Stressbuster

Final Thought: Stressbuster

I’m finding ‘feel-good’ endorphins and a healthier me in ways I never imagined.  Extra work assignments from new projects were coming in (great for the company), yet it was causing a little anxiety, stress and self-talk concerns among me and…

FINAL THOUGHT: A Hot Issue

I’m a creature of habit, especially during my lunch hour. I don’t often stray from Chinese or fast food. But if I hanker for Tex-Mex, I go to Tijuana Flats in Leesburg. While I wait for my quesadillas, I peruse…

Last month, as lights dimmed in the Ruth Eckerd Hall auditorium, I flashed back to Aug. 24, 1983 when a slightly off-kilter 24-year-old drove 126 miles one-way to see one Declan Patrick McManus in concert. You probably know him as…
