  • I am heading to Boulder, Colo., for a Slow Money National Gathering Conference and at writing they are melting a record April snow fall; a warming trend occurs before my arrival, thank goodness.
    Our cold spring met with a blizzard in my destination that is the one opportunity I have to get away for some continuing education this year does not sit well.

  • One of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult.
    She writes love stories mixed with some controversial issue — stem cell research, faith healing, euthanasia, teen suicide — usually with a lengthy courtroom drama at the end.
    Her books are impeccably researched. When she tackles an issue, she knows her stuff.
    In her latest book, “The Storyteller,” she writes about the Holocaust.
