We all spend too much time complaining about the "other" generation. For instance, we Boomers call Millennials the "Me" generation, a cohort of young 20- and 30-somethings that would rather leave their desks at 5:00 p.m. for a yoga class than stay late to finish a project at the office.

March is Women's History Month and seems to be a good time to honor and increase our awareness of the women who have made history.
You can hardly get through an article or news story about technology without hearing about the cloud. It's one of those buzzwords that's impossible to avoid. But what the heck is the cloud? What can it do for you? What if the cloud "breaks"?
At lunch the other day with two of my oldest -- but definitely not OLDEST -- friends, one of them asked: 'Do you have days when you just can't get out of bed?' Well, yes. As a matter of fact, I do. There are also days when I just don't WANT to get out of bed -- and therein lies the problem.
