Keeping Tabs

We have committed ourselves to give back to some wonderful, local organizations in our community. One of them is the Hershey Ronald McDonald house. There is nothing we enjoy more than inviting one of our clients to cook dinner with us at the house while the residents stroll through the kitchen to see what is being created that makes their temporary home smell so good.

One of the ways the …

It’s a New Year and I Just Can’t Contain Myself

There’s nothing better than starting a new year. You get to make up fresh spreadsheets filled with hopeful objectives and glance at a clean, white calendar not yet filled with the scratch marks of cancelled appointments or rescheduled meetings.
