I remember when my friend Jamie Grayson first started his Facebook page. He didn’t have any formal training in social media, but he had his sparkly personality, his wit, his kindness and his honesty.

“Are we there yet?” Whether you are driving or flying, the little ones get antsy sitting for a long time. When I was younger, I always played the license plate game, but that can only last so long. Ideally, a travel game is absorbing enough to keep kids busy for a while, without a ton of small pieces that can ... Read More »
