Congratulations 2016 MLB ALCS Champs: Cleveland Indians

| October 20, 2016

It was a great series for the Cleveland Indians and #believeland fans. After only a moment of doubt (last night), the team effort by the Indians made both the series against the Boston Red Sox (3-0) and the championship series against a power hitting bunch from Toronto … the BlueJays (4-1). Tuesday afternoon’s 4th win […]

Ugly election, Middle East unrest, Economy – October surprise?

| October 18, 2016

Maybe it is just me being a little nervous, but there are a lot of potential triggers for panic. The craziest presidential election I’ve ever seen, a stock market that has risen longer than average between recessions (with tepid economic growth), unrest in the middle east (of course always on fire) and both the Chicago […]

Loving postseason baseball – Indians sweep 3 games

| October 10, 2016

Great to be a Cleveland Indians fan this postseason. They swept all 3 games (3-0) over Boston winning tonight’s game 4 -3. Go Tribe!

Watching Hurricane Matthew and Cleveland Indians

| October 7, 2016

Hurricane Matthew is blasting up Florida’s Atlantic coast at this early morning moment. I’ve been back and forth between baseball and the Weather Channel which spent much of the night broadcasting from all places, Fort Pierce, FL. I exchanged text messages at midnight with our friends riding out the storm there and will stay up […]

Neil Zurcher packs his bags for a final farewell tour

| June 16, 2016

It looks like a farewell “again” for Neil Zurcher from WLW in Cleveland. I remember ‘One Tank Trip’ from our 13 years in the Cleveland area as we often looked for things to do when our time off was short (well it still is!) His trips were a highlight of things to do when our […]

Obamacare will impact NE Ohio and the Cleveland Clinic

| September 22, 2013

The Cleveland Clinic is a bright spot in medical care for those of us living in Ohio and for people from around the country (and world) who need some of the best medical care available. The Clinic was even touted as a role model of health care by President Obama when pushing for his Affordable […]

Obit: Earl Gerber (1921-2013) — part of my extended family

| September 6, 2013

When I first started my company, I had the privilege of learning about "taking care of customers" from Earl Gerber who was a long time business and sales professional in northeastern Ohio. Earl passed away at 92 in Cleveland this past week, and even through all his age related ailments, I never heard him complain. […]

Seminar, workshop and networking for Taylor

| January 7, 2013

My travel schedule this week was modified slightly to include a couple more cold calls in the Cleveland area that I’ve been putting off until the new year … not really my choice … but it works out so that my son Taylor will be able to go to a seminar and workshop while he […]

Hall of Fame Bob Feller Dies at age 92

| December 16, 2010

  One of my all time favorite baseball players and Cleveland Indian star, Bob Feller died on Wednesday night. We had the opportunity to meet and talk with Mr. Feller back when my son played youth baseball and appreciated his signing my son’s ball glove and a photo. He was a remarkably healthy senior well […]

Was great to see the Browns beat the Patriots on Sunday

| November 8, 2010

Maybe I’m still in shock and still need to slap myself in order to believe the Cleveland Browns gave the New England Patriots a “shellacking” on Sunday afternoon – CLE 34, NE 14. It was a great game to have enjoyed watching with my daughter, a Browns fan now that she has spent 17 of […]

Homegrown LeBron James leaves the Cleveland Cavs for Miami

| July 10, 2010

I’m merely archiving another disappointment for Cleveland, Akron and northeast Ohio when it comes to sports … although basketball this time. The roundball super-star Cleveland Cavalier forward LeBron James announced his free agency move to the  Miami Heat NBA franchise on Thursday night. Clevelanders were hoping against hope that James would stay with the Cavs […]

Enjoyed the Reds/Indians Ohio Cup ballgame in Cincinnati

| June 27, 2010

Thank you Taylor for taking me to the Great American Ball Park where we baked on a hot summer Sunday afternoon with excellent right field seats. The Ohio Cup is a favorite game of mine,  pitting my old American League Cleveland Indians (lived there 13 years) against my hometown team the Cincinnati Reds. It really […]
