Thankful? Do Something Positive!

For this Thanksgiving Day, instead of simply listing all the things for which I have been thankful (there are many), I decided to take action and do something positive to express this thankfulness. This year I decided to register with the National Bone Marrow Donor Program There are many ways that you can take a positive step to show your thankfulness with being a bone marrow donor only one of them. I hope you will consider stepping up and move … Continue reading

Westin Saint Francis Hotel Glass Elevators

I’ll admit it — I felt a little dirty and devious heading to the glass elevators at the Westin Saint Francis hotel in San Francisco (335 Powell Street in the heart of Union Square) since they are used for hotel guests and aren’t technically supposed to be a tourist attraction.

We were going … Continue reading

45 Things Everyone Should Do This Year

Apparently, I am always talking about all the things that I want to do, but never do them. At least that is what my sister thinks.

My sister immediately pointed out that last … Continue reading

Experiment Blog

Welcome to Experiment Blog. The genesis of this blog comes from a sibling rivalry between me and my sister and the bets that we make. While we have had many of these bets over the years, I actually recorded for the world to see the last one when the bet was that I couldn’t Eat Well On $1 A Day. This blog has been created to document any future bets that we may have…
