I missed the closing ceremonies of the Olympics last night. I was traveling to my speaking engagement today and wasn’t able to get in front of a TV set in time, but I did love reading about them. Sounds like it was the best closing ceremonies to date. And now we have today… …and the […]
So I made a quick run to Starbucks yesterday before my flights to Seattle. I did a fairly standard order for me… Egg Sausage Breakfast Sandwich No Cheese and a Tall Peppermint Mocha. Nothing too fancy. A minor change here and there, but nothing too crazy. The baristas were incredibly nice, and I had my […]
