Cat Wakes Me Up
Monday, April 21, 2014
Occasionally, but not often, one of our kids, ages 5 ½ and 3 ½, wakes us up in the middle of the night. Now, we don’t have a cat – our two kids plus one dog is enough activity   –...

Two men dressed in dark suits and sunglasses walked stiffly into our Pick of the Litter secondhand shop on Chula Vista Avenue in Burlingame.  “We want to buy all your luggage,” they said. ...

Tree Trimming
Monday, April 07, 2014
The opening of our Center for Compassion led to a new, popular volunteer position: greeter. Many are retired folks; my Mom dutifully takes the Tuesday afternoon shift! ...

Nuisance Wildlife
Monday, March 31, 2014
I like those articles and online posts that start with something like “You know you grew up in the 80’s if…” and they list the things you undoubtedly did or had if you grew up in the 80’s like you ...

Pet Loss for Kids

Monday, March 03, 2014
During my morning commute last Friday, KNBR’s 6 to 9 am hosts were broadcasting from Giants Spring Training in sunny Scottsdale, AZ.  They spent time with first baseman, Brandon Belt, called the Baby Giraffe for his size, long loopy strides and general awkwardness on the base paths. ...

Adoption Readiness
Monday, February 24, 2014
I’m proud of and happy for my niece, who made what she called “the biggest decision of her life” and adopted a cat from PHS/SPCA last week. She did everything right.  First, she got approval from her landlord.  ...

Get a Job
Monday, February 17, 2014
It’s been six years since I hired someone.  I’m ultimately responsible for about 50 of PHS/SPCA’s 110 employees as well as our volunteer program, but I have just six direct reports and each has been ...

Miss Behavin'
Monday, February 03, 2014
Of all my PHS/SPCA co-workers, the one we call Miss Behavin’ is among my very favorites. She’s fascinating, actually. One week, she’s a dirty blond from the Southwest. ...
