Garth Brooks and me in Louisiana!

Did you see the Garth Brooks televised concert at Notre Dame Stadium last week? Over 85,000 country music fans packed the South Bend football field for one of largest concerts ever viewed.
And the crowd’s biggest response, hands down, was when Brooks roamed the huge stage singing: “I spent last night in the arms of a girl in Louisiana.” It was his signature song titled Callin’ Baton Rouge. The crowd went nuts.

Christmas gifts for bosses: Let the stress begin!

Does your workplace have a tradition of employees giving a Christmas gift (er, holiday gift … um, scrupulously secular seasonal transfer of goods) to the boss?
Although many work environments leave it up to employees whether or not to give an individual gift to their superior, at my “day job” of nearly 20 years, we always pool our money and present the head honcho with some token of our esteem.
In such workplaces, most employees are only too happy to chip in. But you have to watch the people on the opposite extremes.

Shop local to grow your economy

You can’t go online or watch TV without seeing ads about Black Friday sales, but I’m more excited by what comes next.
The next day, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, is Small Business Saturday. It’s our chance to support the locally owned stores and restaurants that support our communities throughout the year.
