Excellent post on protecting our work

I just finished two very long and intensive days of legal continuing education. This always jump starts that legal part of my brain.
One of the topics in the two-day legal fest is always estate planning. So, I come home from Day One and find the current issue of MORE magazine has arrived and has a very timely article on “digital estate plans.”
Fate? Karma? Obviously, the universe is trying to tell me something.
To be honest – I never thought about my digital assets and what would happen after I’m gone. And I should have. Lawyers worry about shit like that.
So, since I needed a blog topic and since you, like me, are hooked into the Internet world, I’m sharing what I have learned and plan to put into effect in my own estate plan.
All of us who are tied into the technology of the Internet have…

At our small, fast-moving nonprofit company, everyone does a couple of jobs — and productivity apps help us manage roles that shift between coding, writing/designing and running a full-scale conference twice a year. We asked the TED staff what apps they can’t live without. And beyond the classics—Instagram, Google Maps, Spotify, Uber, Seamless—we found some great apps that might help you too. (A star denotes that the app is free, or at least has a free version.)

A weather app with startling accuracy, its interface tells you things like: “Light rain starting in 22 minutes.” It also shows you beautiful weather maps that let you play local-news weather expert. “It’s like a wizard,” says our CTO, Gavin Hall. “If this app were available in the 1600s, it would have been burned at the stake for witchcraft.”

Every so often I look at the things people were searching for on the internet that brought them to this blog. Then I shake my head at humanity. Then I copy the least offensive but most baffling searches and share them here with you. Because I’m a giver.
What people were searching for on the internet this week that led them here:
- “How to know I’m not in a coma”
- “accidental lesbian”
- “u didn’t have to hang up on me you shuld have told me u dont want me to call you poem”
- “monkeys kissing people walk on the vagina” (It feels like there should be a period here, but I’m not sure where.)
- “Miss Johnson you’re amazing”
- “I want to eat you down into the belly.” (Wow. English is not your first language, is it? Because this is not a good pick-up line.)
- “Our cat had 4…

A gentle reminder.

I hear a lot of complaints from girlfriends and other women online about being in a slump. A sex slump. Everyone has a slump and every slump is different. If you normally have a solid sex life, a slump for you could be only having sex 2 or 3 times a week. If your normal is 2 or 3 times a week, your slump could be once a week or once every 2 weeks. My husband and I are freaks or so we’ve been told. We had a slump that lasted a few months and our slump meant sex only 5 or 6 times a week. We were both working like crazy, under tremendous stress and strain and shit happens. Our normal is around 16 times a week, often more, rarely less.
Barring a medical condition that is causing some sort of sexual dysfunction, here are some ideas to try…

As a “wings girl,” I loved reading another point of view. Hilarity ensues, people.

The other day ..I had to call the husband at work and ask him to please stop at the store and get some pads. The monthly mofo had shown up and I was out of feminine products. My husband has always been pretty good about stopping and picking up those things if I need them. He is pretty secure in his masculinity that it doesn’t bother him. Also he almost always brings chocolate on those days because he knows by now that it will definitely make it a better night around here if he does.
Except this time!! Now let me just say, …I have been with this man for close to 28 years. He knows me!!! He knows everything about me! Probably better than I know myself. And this man that I stood before God and all of our friends and family and vowed to love through thick and…

Great post today from Kristen about sacrifices, choices and compromises we make on the road to defining success.

This post is not a Plate of Cupcake Lessons. It’s a Bowl of Spinach and Kale Lessons. These lessons/habits are probably going to feel very un-fun for a while, but they’re essential for any kind of success. So many want to make success more palatable with sugar-coating and sprinkles. We live in a world of “effort-free, guilt-free, payment-plan options that require no work or pain on our part.”
And like P.T. Barnum once said, There’s a sucker born every minute.
First, we need to define a few key ideas before we dig in.
What is Our Definition of Success?
Before we can apply any “lessons” we have to accept a castor oil spoon of TRUTH. If we don’t make our own decision, we’ve still made a decision by abdicating making our own decision. If we don’t define success or happiness or what’s important, we leave a…
