We still teach a lot of myths in the intro to economics course, myths that spill over to conventional wisdom. Human beings make rational decisions in our considered long-term best interest. Actually, behavioral economics shows us that people almost never...

Things we usually talk about: The weather, celebrities, our mood, random memes, the cat video of the moment, television, gossip, politics. Things we don’t usually talk about: Tough decisions, dreams, challenges, books, lessons learnt, ideas that inspire us. What if we flipped these around?

All that checking isn’t helping. No need to read that piece of news now. Maybe ever. That email? Deal with it later. It is quicker to deal with them in groups anyway. And, those notifications don’t care if you check them. They’re just designed to for you to keep coming back. Few things of consequence ever …

It may not be ideal work. But, we have to earn our stripes. There are rare moments in time when we can bypass concepts like expertise and tenure. A one-of-a-kind opportunity might come your way. Or, you just might find yourself in the right place, at the right time, and create one for yourself. But, …

There are many fundamental requirements for a win-win deal to work. We need to take the time to listen to what the opposite side are really saying. That, in turn, will help us understand their key priorities (and ignore their “positions”). But, for them to work, we have to be willing to accept the risk of …

YouTube Marketing Strategist!

Been there ... done that ... always morphing to be able to try something new.

Have to admit that this profile is for both Pat & Scarlet. We are soul mates and can  not be separated!

Currently, we are both excited about business social video! The many opportunities web video can be used to connect with others. Pat is leveraging her business strategy and business architecture experience and helping businesses develop a successful strategy on how to incorporate video to engage with others. If you want to know more ... visit . It's new and building. So come grow with Scarlet and Pat in our new venture.

Pat's other passion is for parrots. Parrots are beautiful with a colorful personality. Scarlet (a Solomon Island Eclectus Hen) and Pat had a greeting card company featuring all of Scarlet's gorgeous friends as models. We flew to the next big thing but left our designs for other parrot-loving people. Feel free to visit Scarlets Feathers to see stationery items with Companion Parrot Attitude! 

So yes, this profile is for Pat Ferdinandi (the chief thought translator) ... but Scarlet (the princess who must be obeyed) is never far away...and usually on Pat's shoulder.

As others have said, the service is top notch. The food is good as well. We do like a spicier marinara sauce. We just added a shake of red pepper and it was perfect. A really, really nice touch is how they provide a cup of marinara sauce to dip the pizza crust in. Truly enjoyed the eggplant rollatini. The eggplant has few bread crumbs (which is preferred by us). The atmosphere is so welcoming. Add a little extra time as they do not rush you.

Fab burgers. The brazen and grover were trued today. Excellent. Best onion rings i have ever had. Reg fries were good too. Looking forward to trying something different each visit.

Dr. Crupi is fabulous. - Very knowledgeable (avian and dog). - Doesn't push when you are more holistic. - States the truth (like if your pet is overweight). - Expresses the pros and cons. - Has a great bedside manner. We have a parrot and a dog. This is our 6th avian vet for our parrot. We are glad we finally found a great one in time for when we now added a dog.
