It wasn’t that long ago when it seemed like it was necessary to have a PhD in order to program the remote. I remember thinking I had recorded some show only to discover I had failed to do step 7 of the 16 steps required to record it. Now it’s just a matter of pushing the button or just telling it to do whatever you want it to. (Love the Genie in the remote!)
Fortunately the days of needing 5 different remotes and 9 different devices to just plan a playlist are long over. Technology…Continue

If I were to tell you that to truly move forward in your life, all you had to do was move the ugly parked car in front of you, would you move it?
Most would say Duh! Of Course! How silly! But most of us do not move, no matter what. We don’t see that dirty car in our path that keeps us stuck in the mud of life.
Most of our lives, however, do move freely except in one or two key areas where we seem have a resistance or a different take on a Neil Diamond song, “I’m stuck forever…Continue
