Family Coat of Arms

June 4, 2010

I decided to make a family coat of arms for me and my future family.  The words mean virtue, diligence, honor, and faithfulness.  I was inspired to do it after I was stabbed in the back last fall.  I’ll never forget that and will always use the events to motivate me.  It reminds me how I should live my life, even though I was already living it that way.  Consider it like a rededication.


Mike or Michael?

October 5, 2009

Today I made an appointment and the lady on the line asked me if Mike was short for Michael.  Isn’t it safe to assume that?  There have also been a lot of times when someone says to me, “Mike…no, that name is not in our system.”  Then after a while they figure out that it’s under Michael.  They always seem very surprised.  “Oh, it’s under Michael.  That’s why I didn’t see it.”  If your job was to make appointments, wouldn’t you try Michael if it’s not under Mike?
