Postcard from a Twitter Friend

20 Jul
July 20, 2015

Few things make me smile as wide as when I go to the mail box and pull out a hard written card or letter. A long time social media friend sent me a post card from her adventures in Europe. How great is that.

I love writing handwritten notes and cards. I’m in a little lull at the moment, but I promise to be better

Kids, Do Awesome Things!!! THIS IS AWESOME!

TommyLog – High School Reunions

16 Jan
January 16, 2014

At my local gym the other morning, doing what I do best at 5:30 in the morning… working out. *Cough* I like to workout in the area which is called the cardio theater. They always have a movie playing. The movie that was playing this day was a movie about high school reunions. I usually listen to music so I don’t pay much attention, but it looked kind of interesting.

Made think about my high school experience in the people I had met. I have been away from high school for well over 25 years and I think about the people who were my friends in high school and those who were not. I didn’t run in the circle with the jocks or the theater folk; I was considered more of a geek because I was in the AV club. DO NOT JUDGE!

Which brings me back to my 25th high school reunion. I remember showing up and all the guys that were jocks are now burnouts, literally.  The guy that comes to mind ran a pizza place on the beach and after talking to him it was clear that there’s more going into his system then just pizza dough and pepperoni’s.

With the advent of Facebook many of my high school friends that I had lost touch with for years and years are now closer than ever. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I’m not sure. Though the miles separate us the technological divide has brought us closer together. But it’s interesting how many people are my friends now who wouldn’t give me the time of day back in 1986. Makes you think!

What you think about your high school reunions. Do you go to them? Do people treat you differently?

TommyLog – The Home Life vs Work Balance

23 Oct
October 23, 2013

This week I had a very thought provoking chat with my friend Lisa @lisaredshoespr and Melissa regarding home life / work balance. In this day and age, is there really a life work balance? You have so many distractions, cell, web, TV, social media. is there balance anymore? Is your work just a 9 to 5 job? Can you just turn off work?

TommyLog – NBC Tape Delay Fail #NBCFAIL

13 Aug
August 13, 2012

Is there anyone in the good old USA who is not upset by the way NBC has handled the coverage Summer Games in London? In this day and age of social media and on-demand news, why oh why did they chose to run many of the best events via tape delay? I get the whole time zone thing, but we are way past that! What was the last major sporting event you watched on tape delay? The Super Bowl? The World Series? The Final Four? Even to World Cup? Right? Seriously, what possessed NBC to pull this maneuver?
