You know who you are.  The good little boy scout who hid bottled water around the house and converted your kid's old Spiderman backpack into an emergency survival kit as the clock counted down the zeros and ones to a binary holocaust.  And while the Y2K panic has been relegated to the laughable c...
Appraisal.  The word alone is enough to send shivers up the spines of Real Estate agents, mortgage brokers, home buyers & sellers alike.  If you haven’t heard of the recent difficulties in this murky aspect of a home purchase, you just haven’t been paying attention.  Hands tied by draconian new(e...
  My business partner is older than dirt.    Seriously, he's so old that Metamucil takes him in the morning. He's so old that when he takes his grandchildren on his knee and speaks of "The Great War," he is referring to The Crusades. He's so old that it takes 4 hours for his life to flash before ...

You have something to say, some timely tidbit to impart, but don’t relish the specter of an ensuing dialogue.  You’re not interested in the entanglements of conversation, what with the awkward pauses, opinions other than your own and … gulp … small talk.    Too much commitment.  What you want is ...
