Anthem Security Breach May or May Not Affect You! What Do You Do Now?

The security breach at Anthem Blue Cross can be a very disturbing issue since our insurance companies have so much data about us.

Free Therapy # 56: The Meaning of My Pain

I am in pain.  I am not the only one. I feel like a self-absorbed baby even writing about it.  It is not “manly” to admit I hurt.  I know better of course.  I am well-acquainted with the heavy burden men carry in our culture to be tough.  Or at least to appear tough and [...]

Matt’s Chats with Mike Cullen: Neighbor to the North

Meet my friend Mike Cullen, a neighbor to the north in Ottawa Canada.  He’s a multi-talented go-getter with drive and pluck and a rather astonishing ability to write a new novel every year.  Seriously, every year.  If I wrote a book a year, you can believe they would be about five pages long and the [...]
