Wednesday Hodgepodge...

1. What lesson has failure taught you?

To not make the same mistake again...:-)   I don't like to fail but I have learned more from my screw ups than I have from my successes.

2. What decision are you glad you made?

To move to Charleston is a great one that we made.  We both love the lifestyle that the city provides.  It really is an incredible place.

3. I've been a little bit surprised to see fully lit and decorated Christmas trees popping up for the past several weeks in friend's Instagram feeds. So tell the truth-is your tree up and decorated, and if so when did that happen? If not, when will you be decking the halls?

I am not a big Christmas fan.  I would rather avoid the whole thing but with three kids, I kinda have to do it.  We will probably put up the tree December 22nd or so.  Heather should be returning from her Canadian sojourn with my parents - so we can do it then.

4. Solitaire-Poker-Rummy-Hearts-Go Fish-Old Maid...which game of cards would you most like to join? 

I don't necessarily like cards either but I will play Poker as a social element.

5. This question comes to you courtesy of a Facebook friend, who once upon a time had a blog...When you're feeling stressed do you snack a lot or are you more the 'can't eat' type?

As my waistline can attest, I do tend to eat more.

6.  Have you ever reviewed a product or service on line? Was your review favorable or less than favorable? 

Heather does reviews all the time.  I on the other hand very rarely do so.  Though I do write text book reviews for journals.  They do tend to be extensive and contain suggestions for improvements.

7. What was the best conversation you had yesterday? 

I did a talk on my future trends in hospitality and tourism.  I will post the slides here tomorrow...

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

We are going to be adding some new additions to the blog in the New Year.  First and foremost we will have a new look.   Further, we will be adding a couple of new features.  Heather and I will also be making a point of writing more together.   If you have any suggestions as to what you would like to see let us know...
