Michael, please. Not Mike.

I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!).

Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like.

When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Reply All? Please Don’t!

I'm sure this happens in your office: someone sends an e-mail to everyone in the organization asking a question or making a statement of fact. Then, instead of replying back just to the sender, too many people send their comment or answer by hitting REPLY ALL.

Are You One Of Those?

Every office has at least one. You know the person I am talking about - the one who takes the last something-or-another from the box, and leaves the empty box for someone else to throw away.

How Many Times Will You Hear The Monster Mash Today?

It doesn't make sense to play "Monster Mash" any other time of the year. So everybody is going to get as much mileage out of the song on this one day.

  • I woke up this morning to "Monster Mash" playing on my clock radio.
