FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS! BuySparklers.com is a lifesaver! I forgot to order sparklers for my send-off and they were able to get my sparklers to me quickly. The staff made sure they shipped the sparklers out the same day to ensure they would arrive by my wedding date. The sparklers were a huge hit and were beautiful! I am so thrilled with how the sparklers made my day extra special! Highly recommend them to all brides!

“To Serve…With Love”

"To Serve...With Love" - Classic film buffs, and people of “a certain age” fondly remember a touching Sidney Poitier movie from the 1960s – “To Sir, With Love” – which also featured a memorable title track performed by pop star Lulu. For those unfamiliar with this cinematic gem, it’s a story about a person who had a distinct career path in mind, which got derailed fairly promptly in the first act of the movie. Of course, it wouldn’t be...

That cool snap in the air tells us one thing…it’s time for fall planting!

Obviously, a...

Re-Ignite The Spark In “Day Of The Dead”

First, let’s set the record straight – although they both DO involve costumes, treats, skulls and, of course, “otherworldly spirits” – Halloween and Day of the Dead are NOT interchangeable or just one big days’ long autumnal holiday! (And, just to get a head start, Hanukah is not the “Jewish Christmas”…BUT, we’ll get to that one in a future post.) And while they do share many similarities, most people had no idea exactly WHAT Día de los Muertos was about...

Make This Halloween Night LIT!

Let the “holiday season” begin! Yep…we’re about to kick-off the beginning of the holiday-packed last quarter of the year: Halloween, Día de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, and then we cap-off the whole extravaganza with New Year’s Eve. And we’re pretty certain MOST people are counting down to the end of 2020! However, have you ever given much thought to the actual word “holiday”? Once reminded, the majority of people DO recall that it’s a simple amalgam of “holy +...


MILLIONS Celebrate It… And Chances Are YOU Never Heard Of It!

MILLIONS Celebrate It… And Chances Are YOU Never Heard Of It!  At the end of last month, many around the world celebrated the beginning of the Jewish New Year, marked by Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. And we’re familiar with the Chinese New Year festivities that fall in late January or February. Then, OF COURSE, we pull out all the stops for our traditional December 31st welcome of the New Year…something MANY are eagerly anticipating this year in particular! Yet,...


Football PROVES It…You CAN Go Home Again!

Thomas Wolfe famously wrote: “You can’t go home again.” And in quite a few instances this actually holds true – with one MAJOR exception. HOMECOMING! If we’re being honest, you may dread those visits to and from distant relatives, and genuinely avoid those uncomfortable reunions with past coworkers. BUT… when it comes to our school loyalties, we eagerly look forward to every chance we get to gather at our alma mater! Those high school and college allegiances run DEEP. And regardless...


Diez Y Seis De Septiembre

Ahhhh…September! The beginning of that special time of year evoked so poetically in the movie “You’ve Got Mail”: "Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send  you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." Such a powerful metaphor, it works its magic on our heroine. And September DOES hold the promise for a number of things – students returning to their schoolwork, cooler mornings and...

They Call Them “GRAND” For A Reason!

“Once upon a time, boys and girls, there was a sweet little old lady and an adorable little old man. They lived in a magical cottage where treats and hugs and coins were liberally distributed. And this wondrous place was known as ‘Grandparent Land’!” See,  the word "grandparent” used to mean some frail little old man or woman, who sat in a chair and watched the "Weather Channel" or baked cookies all day...but, TODAY’S grandparents continue to rewrite the book on the...


Give YOURSELF A Pat On The Back – You EARNED It!

We’ve previously discussed the true value of “bribes” to facilitate virtually every aspect of our personal and professional lives. C’mon, can you think of a single person who DOESN’T like to be rewarded or recognized for an accomplishment?! We do it for our kids and friends, good leaders do it for their team, schools and organizations do it for their students and participants. So, the question begs, do you do it for YOURSELF?!?  You earned it! Most people have “mental”...
