Its important to "know your audience" when talking trying to influence people. This sometimes mean backing off and spending time thinking about what motivates them.http://arianaisstillgrowing.blogspot.com/2015/12/why-cant-we-just-agree-that-something.html

Why Can't We Just Agree That Something Needs To Be Done?
After the shootings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, I made a commitment to use my very small social media presence to beat the drum on gun control. As someone with the highest privacy settings on FB, my reach is not far. But it was, and is still my b...

We Are Collectively Answerable And should be Collectively Angry
About 20 years ago, we took our kids to a free screening of "Angels In the Outfield" at a local theater. Being a free movie the theater was packed with families just like ours. Each child was given a baseball and when the movie ended parents in every row we...

WALKING ON MY HANDS, LIFE ON CRUTCHES: TIPS, TRICKS, AND TANTRUMS
I suppose my time had simply come. I'm a clumsy person, so much so that honestly, I should just bubble wrap myself and avoid hard surfaces. But I'm not that smart, so it shouldn't have come as a surprise when after nearly 50 years without breaking a bone, I...

Parents rarely know when their experiencing something for the last time. We have a lot of "lasts" coming up. Here's my new perspective:

Last Chances
Today is the last day of school. I got up a little extra early to prepare the day since I'm the only parent home this morning. Smartypants got up extra early too, before I had a chance to wake her like I usually do. I was glad, I needed her to be cooperativ...

I can't say enough about my experience with Accurate Auto in Beaverton. I had a very limited timeframe to get my car taken care of, and I was able to bring it in the same day I called. I had a limited budget,my car needed a LOT of work, and when it looked like replacing my car's engine just wouldn't be possible, Carlos did some "out of the box" problem solving and found a way to fix my car within my budget. After coming up with an estimate that worked for me, he stayed within that estimate even after the car took several more days to repair than anticipated. Carlos and his crew did excellent work, making sure that the car would be safe to drive. I'm impressed with the workmanship, but more importantly, Carlos' integrity as a business person. I will definitely use them again,.

I've been a customer at Taglio for several years now and will never go anywhere else. DeDe cuts and colors my hair with exceptional skill. I have very thin, not easily managed hair, and through the year's I've learned that not just anyone can cut hair like mine. DeDe gives me beautiful cuts that look great when I leave the salon, and still look great months later. She knows I rarely come in more than 3 times a year, so she expertly cuts it so that it will grow out well. I was very apprehensive about a professional color job prior to having DeDe color my hair. I always colored it myself, because I hated the "stripey" look that I saw on women who got their's done professionally. DeDe changed all that for me. While it certainly costs me a lot more than doing it myself, the result is a beautiful, natural color. She also will color it lighter in the summer and darker in the winter...because that is what my hair would do naturally. She's a pro, and an expert at her job. The service and friendliness from the rest of the staff can't be beat.
