Lite Notes

The View from Here

Mar 29th, 2021

I don’t always write the lead story for the daily USGNN e-newsletter, but the past couple of weeks have had me pulling double-duty. In addition to my USGlass editor responsibilities, I’ve also been compiling the USGNN lead stories. Sure, it’s added to my daily workload, but it’s also given me a chance to step back […]

Almost a Year

Feb 22nd, 2021

I’ve been thinking about this blog lately, and what I wanted to share this month. For weeks I was thinking about how it would post on the last Monday of the month, February 29 … until I realized today that there isn’t a February 29 in 2021. And doesn’t that pretty much sum up what […]

Good Things in Store

Jan 25th, 2021

Welcome to my first blog of 2021. We’re only about four weeks into the New Year, and things have already been busy. I’m not here to re-hash what happened or didn’t happen, where we’ve been or where we’re going … though I will admit I had a few laughs over the Bernie mitten memes last […]

Planning Ahead

Nov 30th, 2020

We’re nearing the end of 2020—and for most of us, we’ll be glad to see it go, as we look forward to the good that 2021 (hopefully) will bring. And let me add, I hope you all had a happy and healthy Thanksgiving and are looking forward to a safe and festive holiday season ahead. […]

Green is Good

Oct 26th, 2020

Ok, well, the words Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko said in the movie “Wall Street” were actually “Greed is good.” I like to think most of us would disagree with that. On the other hand, green is good. Think about all the things that are green in color that are good for us: leafy green […]

Say That Again. And Again, and Again

Sep 28th, 2020

Today should be “Medal Monday” for me. I should have run a half marathon last weekend, but, like most everything else in the world these days, the in-person event was canceled. Instead, the options were to either run a virtual race or defer to next year’s live event. I chose to defer to 2021. I’ve […]

Virtual Reality

Aug 31st, 2020

September 2020 looks different compared to years past. For many of us, September is a month of travel—to Las Vegas or Atlanta. No one, most likely, is going to either of those cities in September, at least not for a trade show. For many of us, this time of year is synonymous with travel, re-connecting […]

Staying Connected

Jul 27th, 2020

Four months ago if you asked me what I would be working on the last week of July I’d say something like preparing for the upcoming in-person show issues, booking flights to Las Vegas and Dusseldorf, and catching up after a week of vacation. Only the latter is 100% accurate. And while I’m not booking […]

Silver Linings

Jun 30th, 2020

Halfway through 2020 … what a year so far. I know I’m not the first to say that; I’m sure you’ve heard that, or some version of it, from plenty of others. I think we can all agree, it’s been a tough six months on all sorts of levels. But I’m not here to be […]

Better than Normal

Apr 27th, 2020

Lately, I find myself saying things like “when everything gets back to normal …” and I have to stop and pause. Sure, normal is fine. But what if we could be better than normal? While we’re all struggling in our own way with the impact the coronavirus is having, I’ve seen a lot of good […]
