Wisdom, Justice, Fortitude and Temprance

Posted by:

“You wrote to me once of the four true virtues: Wisdom, Justice, Fortitude and Temprance. As I read them, I knew I had none of them. But I have other virtues.” is the line that Commodus says to his father, Marcus Aurelius in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. The film is so beautifully written, acted, filmed and produced, that I think of it often.

When John Piper spoke this Sunday spoke about The Prodigal Son, ...

Nokia’s Treasure Tag

Nokia’s Treasure Tag

Why are they using these larger “tags” instead of thinner stickers? I was wondering – is there a better and easier way? I totally forgot I ordered all those NFC stickers when I got my Lumia 1020. IDK where they are, I haven’t even programmed them, and I think it’s so cool that we have that capability! So am I going to spend the $30 and try it out? Probably. There’s still time to consider it since it’s not really on ...

SharePoint Saturday Huntsville was a Huge Success

SharePoint Saturday Huntsville was a Huge Success and so much fun to attend!

Located in Huntsville, Alabama and held at the beautiful Jackson Center, the event was well organized and very professionally run.

I wish I could have attended all of the sessions and also presented. Why haven’t we learned to duplicate ourselves, yet? 🙂 Cathy Dew and Mark Rackley did a great job organizing the event, and it went very smoothly. I was impressed with the pamphlets describing all the speakers, sessions ...

Business Emails

Posted by:

I have been using “Thank You” as a Complimentary Closing on my emails for some time now, probably about two years. The reason is that I wanted the recipient of my emails to feel appreciated. Whether I was doing work for them, or they were doing work for me, I thought it would be like a subconscious encouragement to them. It is nice to be thanked for what you do.

Recently, I decided to change my complimentary closing. A quick discussion ...
