PeKu and Playdough

Over the past few months I have spent a good amount of time making changes to PeKu. These changes have been bigger than typical site redesigns or article additions.  In fact, as I reflect upon the changes I've made it makes me think of using playdough with my children when they were little.  Sitting with them at their preschool-sized table, we would take the warm playdough that we had made and create a variety of items. What I liked it about it was that you could imagine anything you wanted, shape, and reshape until your form was

Moving On

My first article of the month usually is a highlight of what to expect in the coming month.  This month I am taking a different approach to the column, as I want to focus on two members of the PeKu team.

In April's Highlights column, I wrote that we were adding three new columnists to assist with upcoming transitions.  The first of those transitions occurred at the end of April when Bea V. and Louise v. d. H. wrote their last articles for PeKu.  These two writers are special to PeKu (and me) for several reasons.

Marathon Monday

With the start of the elite women's group, the 118th Boston Marathon began approximately half an hour ago.  Sitting at the office, the marathon is playing on the television instead of the regular business news shows.  As it does on many Marathon Mondays, conversation turns to running.

A colleague at the office asked if I ever had run a marathon.  I laughed politely.  Even though I workout faithfully, six days a week, I don't consider myself to be a runner of any form or fashion. I haven't even run a 5k.  I use running as a part of

PeKu News- April 2014

On this mid-April morning, I can barely find the words to explain my excitement at today's weather.  The sun is shining, the temperatures are supposed to reach the upper 70s, and I am wearing open-toed sandals (without shivering!).  Additionally, yesterday was the first day that I spent working in my yard this season- transplanting shrubbery, cleaning perennial beds, and removing the winter's accumulation of sand from our garage.  These first few tastes of warm spring weather have been delicious!

Just as the sun puts a smile on my face, so do some of these noteworthy items:

  • New tagline- For
