We let sandwich prices get out of control (part 1)
There was a time in America when eight out of ten people were humming the same song. This tune became a national anthem of sorts and was more popular during it’s prime than the peaks of MMMBop, Who Let the Dogs Out, and I’m Blue (Da Ba Dee Da Ba Die).

Growing up, there were kids who were into sports and kids who were into music. Kids who lived for the four-square game at recess and kids who were off doing their own thing with fake swords and magic spells.

Or, not even that, how does a startup holiday climb the ranks to reach the Columbus... Read more »

Please, take these ideas: Italy edition

For this edition of “Please, Take This Idea,” I was going to focus on one idea from the Italy vacation. But I quickly realized there wasn’t enough meat on that bone to fill up even half of a blog post. So today, special for Halloween, instead of one Medium Rare idea, you’re getting five.  And, honestly, these probably... Read more »

Please, take this idea: Search Bar

I saw a commercial the other day that featured a family of four dispersed throughout their two-story house. There was a daughter upstairs on her phone. A son playing a video game on a tablet. The dad typing away on a computer. The mom sets the dinner table and–with this subtle, almost mischievous grin–clicks a... Read more »
