Selling the Dream

"Sometimes the things we can't change, end up changing us." The times we're living in are certainly character building. Things are changing faster than ever before. It's almost a palatable hum. The kind of hum you'd find in a Stephen King novel. Most of it being generated by technology. From…

Keeping Up with the Kepples

Happy Holidays My Friends!

It's hard to believe as I look at the fog, that one year ago we were buried in snow. 14 inches of snow that broke a 40 year record and paralyzed our city. What a difference a year makes! As I reflect on the past year, I realize that much…
