Less Is More

As stores began to reopen after this springs’ shutdown, I was surprised at how much my shopping experience had changed.  The typical overflowing shelves, narrow aisles, and abundance of options had been replaced by wide aisles with sparingly stocked shelves and racks.  The stores seemed so open and empty, and my first reaction was dissatisfaction.  […]

Do the Fans Matter?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers played their first game a few weeks ago.  As I was watching the game with my husband and my boys, I noticed that there were no fans.  I knew that this was already something that had been happening at other sporting events, but at the first Bucs game, it really stood […]
