How to Treat Your Co-Workers Like Children and Succeed in Business. Maybe. +City Dads Group +NYC Dads Group 
Kids operate from an unrelatable place, often with no logical motivation or rationale for their behavior. Kind of like your boss. Or your clients. Or your annoying coworker Karen.

The business and tech world has been tripping over itself in recent weeks over word that Apple -- makers of the iPhone, the iPad and iIndigestion – are working on an electric car. Based on the experiences I've had with the company's iGadgets, I predict the following: ...

"Family is family whether you’re a mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, gay, straight or anyone else doing the most important job in the world – raising children." Well said, +Jason Grant. #AmazonFamilyUS  +Amazon.com +City Dads Group +NYC Dads Group 
The late Oren Miller didn't see parenting as a contest between mom and dad, and neither do his fellow dad bloggers taking up his cause. Family is family regardless of who is doing the most important job in the world – raising children.

First timer. Had Sara cut my receding mop today, and I was very impressed with her work, and the whole operation. Clean store, very friendly staff. I'll be coming back.

Been bringing my Lab there for years and never had a bad experience. Always accommodating, friendly and reasonably priced. Plus, unlike many "chain" kennels I've looked at in the Norwalk/Stamford area, they don't charge extra for bringing your own food for the dog (seriously, some places do), giving medications, or letting your pooch out in the yard to play with other dogs once or twice a day. Unlike Camp Bow Wow, they don't make you pay in advance for stays during peak times of the year or not refund you if you have to cancel at the last-minute. Two paws up, Passage East!
