HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

posted on
For all of our AAHAM fathers I want to wish you a Happy Father’s Day!   Some of you may think of Father’s Day as another Hallmark holiday or a Sunday marked by giving Dad a tie, bbq tools or golf balls, but I think it’s important to recognize the contributions fathers make to their families. Fathers today seem much more involved than the fathers we knew from TV when I was growing up. Whether it was “Leave it to Beaver”, “Father Know Best” or &l...

BOGO; The Allure of Free

posted on
 Did you know you can get a free donut from Dunkin Donuts if you complete their quick questionnaire on customer experience? I didn’t realize this but when I learned about it, it made me laugh. Somehow a free donut doesn’t seem as calorie laden or as decadent as the one that you decided to buy. Certainly it’s something to ponder.  My sister Janis loves their coffee, she has so much will power though, she can go to one without getting nary a donut hole, not even a free ...

QBQ

posted on
Starting my spring cleaning, I decided to part with some books that I haven’t read or have had for many years. I found an intriguing thin paperback, “QBQ! The Question behind the Question” by John G. Miller, and decided to read it before I donated it to charity. Miller’s advice is as helpful today as when I purchased the book 10 years ago. His suggestions offer keys to success in business and in personal relationships.The author recommends making a difference and focusing...

Celebrating AAHAM Mothers on Mother's Day
When you start thinking of your Mother’s Day celebration this year; it may be interesting knowing the origin of Mother’s Day.This holiday dates back to 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She had campaigned to make Mother’s Day a recognized holiday when her mother died in 1905. She wanted to honor her mother, Ann Jarvis, and have a day set aside to honor all mothers.   Jarvis’ mother was a peace activist who cared for ...

March is National Craft Month

posted on
March is National Craft Month and since beading is my craft of choice, I think it’s nice to recognize those of us who craft and inspire new crafters. Michaels, Jo-Ann’s and Hobby Lobby will be happy too.I know there is so little time to pursue crafts but I find it satisfying to be able to say, “I made it” when someone pays me a compliment about a necklace or bracelet I’ve made. I also love to give my homemade creations as special gifts to special people. I’ve ...

A sure sign of spring certainly is when we set our clock ahead and this month when I go to bed Saturday night, March 7th, I’ll be sure to do this. It’s also a good reminder to change your smoke detector batteries at home.Daylight Saving Time (DST) means my three dogs (KD, Bear & Crosby) can be walked in the evening after work rather than in the morning. That’s a nice change for me since I’m known for not being a morning person. They aren’t too particular as long...

The Amazing AAHAM Volunteers

posted on
Whenever I return from an AAHAM board meeting; I reflect on the many inspiring people who serve as our executive committee, committee chairs and chapter presidents. Their countless hours of volunteering is simply quite remarkable. They balance their AAHAM commitment with career demands, families and their personal life. It is very rewarding to see people’s growth and their leadership skills develop as they move up the ranks. Are we born to be leaders?Former U.S. secretary of State, Colin P...

Update Your Calendars, And Check Them Twice
I don’t know about you but I have already started updating my 2015 calendar in November. I know, I’m a bit old fashioned, I still use a day timer (and yes, I have a rolodex too) but I did finally get an iPhone 5s, much to my staff’s delight! My calendar is starting to fill up with assorted medical appointments for both me and my pets, as well as various birthdays, milestones, staff days off, vacations, business travel and of course, AAHAM board meetings, Legislative Day and th...
