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!
