Sometimes you just can't help but to laugh

Before I dive into this blog post, let me just say that it is not my intention to throw anyone under the bus. Some things are beyond our control, and sometimes there are a series of events that previously were thought to be unrelated which conspire to create a perfect storm. In other words, THINGS HAPPEN!

I share this as a reminder of Murphy's Law, and in this case - Murphy's Law for SIDs.

For those uninitiated into what Murphy's Law for SIDs is, it is the belief that whatever can go wrong will go wrong ... ON GAME DAY.

Why I love social media, especially Twitter

If you follow me on Twitter or a friend of mine on Facebook, you know I spend some time on these social media platforms.

OK, I spend a great deal of time, especially when you consider that when I'm on my laptop I have my TweetDeck up and running the entire time. (And yes, I have switched back to TweetDeck. Might ought to update you about that but been busy. Still would like to try out HootSuite. But I digress.)

I'll be honest, I was very hesitant about signing up and joining Facebook and Twitter, especially the latter. Yet, the more time I've invested in social media, the more I see some very good benefits.
