When Good Things Happen…

Sometimes good things happen to good people. I know, I know... it's hard to believe. Well, sit back, Blogtropolis, and let me tell you a little story... I work with a lady, let's call her Terry.

Another year…!

Where does the time go?   I started Waiting on a Word four years ago. How did it get to be 2017?  I'm sorry I haven't been around much because WOAW is still my favorite corner of my cyberworld.

If I Ran the World, The work week would be four days. People would be more efficient because they'd know they only have four days to get their work done, and they'd be grateful for the three-day weekends. Think about it. Grocery stores would be designed so you'd walk into the dry foods section, then … Continue reading If I Ran the World
