Continuity is Essential to your Business! PDF  | Print |  E-mail


Recent winters caused business disruptions in the Puget Sound area. Windstorms crippled both residences and businesses for weeks during 2006. Interstate-5 was closed due to flooding in 2007 and record snow knocked out commerce in 2008.

Why are Airlines So Silly? PDF  | Print |  E-mail

efficiency expert Airline operationsPlanes are late often. Passengers miss connecting flights too often. This issue was brought to mind on a trip to and from Boston, last year. I’m an efficiency expert and I was struck with a brilliant idea the night right after I missed my flight home. I am surprised the brilliant industrial engineers and managers at every airline have not implemented this very simple system to reduce missed connections. I can’t believe this idea has not crossed someone’s mind before.

tribe2I have a small tribe.  Five children, four of them married with wonderful spouses and five grandchildren, so far.  My Mom came from a family of eleven and my Dad from a smaller family, only nine.  That's eighteen aunts and uncles, then their spouses and then cousins.  Every Sunday we were at one grandmother’s or the other.  A small home jam packed with people and a table piled high with food.  Forget about it!  A good Italian tribe spawned in New York City and now spread all over the country.  However, most members are still within 100 miles of the Big Apple.  So what, you say.
