June 1, 2013

State Farm’s slogan hasn’t changed since 1971. It begins: “Like a Good Neighbor…” Good neighbors are great but a rarity. In today’s busy world it takes more than providing insurance for catastrophic events to win the hearts of those living nearby.  If you do want the keys to the neighborhood, to be the neighbor who’s loved […]

The True Believers Among Us

April 20, 2013

A True Believer is someone who is deeply, sometimes fanatically devoted to a cause, organization, or person. I live among true believers – they’re my co-op neighbors. Our housing association does not pay any vendor for maintenance services. Instead, to save money, we each have assigned chores. More than that, we have a monthly work […]

February 28, 2013
