By the way, last week I wanted to talk about ESPN’s ESPY awards but ran out of time. The two things I wanted to share with you were (1) the piece about Lauren Hill and the speech Jimmy Valvanno gave when he won the Arthur Ashe Award. He died a month after giving the speech and it was for him that the Perseverance award was named – the Jimmy V Award. Here’s his memorable 1993 speech: Jimmy Valvanno
Emily Post was my quotable woman today. Think about this the next time someone is texting in a meeting or gabbing on their cell at lunch:

Nothing is less important than which fork you use. Etiquette is the science of living. It embraces everything. It is ethics. It is honor. Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.”

Talk to you next Friday at Happy Hour – have a fabulous weekend!

What are the Maine Diaries?

The Maine Diaries is a fun look at my annual adventure to New England where I unwind from normal life and reconnect with myself.

I was captivated by the Maine Coast on my first trip there in the late 90’s. In the years since, I’ve traveled up and down the coast from Kittery to Calais but I spend most of my Maine time Downeast. I love the adventures I have and the chance to unwind from the world and restore my inner clarity. I chronicle my experiences in The Maine Diaries.
