With our boys out of school for Christmas break, I’m taking advantage of time with them, with friends, with family.

Last Thursday I was all fired up over something that knocked me off my rocker. I was lied to. I really don’t like liars. Nonetheless, it was by a major corporation. If you know me, you know it is the principle of the matter that really got to me. Here’s what went down. I had an appointment scheduled in the morning with the …
