Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience both physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at two in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience but it made it quite difficult to sleep at my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.

If confronted with a snake, it is our goal to have control of our dog to ensure a snake bite does not follow.

Identity theft. Two words that all of us are becoming increasingly aware of with each passing day.
It seems that more and more often, I encounter numerous clients, friends and associates who have been laid off or fired and many others who for one reason or another are out of work and looking for a job. If you are in this group of individuals and looking for employment, it can be a tremendously stressful time as you try and figure out what you are going to do to survive and pay your bills. It becomes even more worrisome to balance survival with the lengthy processes companies implement in their hiring practices.
