Most people don’t write about the death of a loved one before it happens, but here I am, nursing her, and writing about what’s going to happen.

My beautiful wife Debi has been the sun and the stars in my life since 2005. I knew her a little before then…

Although I love my job and the company I work at…. my personal assessment of corporate America is that 90% of corporate america is shit. 90% of jobs in corporate America are horrible, toxic, go-nowhere jobs and most people in these jobs know it. 90% of managers in corporate America…

Lots of interesting articles on Medium about the great resignation, how work sucks, bosses suck, and how many people simply refuse to go back to work. As usual, it gets politicized. The red people say shut up and get a job, and they say we should cut all unemployment benefits…

I’m one of those annoying multilingual internationalists you love to hate. I was born in Kenya, spent my childhood in Rome, my teens in London, and my twenties in Switzerland. That’s not all. We’re Irish, both parents from Dublin area, and we spent Christmases and summers in our ‘home’ home…
