December Highlights

December feels like it arrived early this year.  With a Thanksgiving that was as late as the calendar allows, it isn't surprising.  So, we quickly shift gears from Pilgrim decorations and cranberry sauce to candles in windows and cookie baking parties.  While this year's calendar may make the entire holiday season feel more rushed, it also makes everything seem more festive.  At least for me, I enjoy having the family-filled Thanksgiving and proceeding immediately to holiday parties and shopping for presents.

Try Something New

How often do we encourage others to try something new?  If you're a parent, it can be a common topic of discussion.  From the early years of "Try a bite of cooked squash" to the older years of "Yes, you should try doing pole vault", we tend to spend a decent amount of time encouraging our children to be open to new ideas, activities, and more.  We do this also in our work roles, advising and helping others with new tasks and responsibilities.  Personally, I like to have team members try something new.  If it doesn't work

Thankfulness

Later this month we will celebrate Thanksgiving.  Named as such, amidst all of the food, family, and festivities, we usually find time to give thanks.  Whether it be a quiet reflection, a note, or a conversation, most of us spend a moment thinking about all the things for which we are grateful.

November Highlights

Every month brings its own changes.  Here in New Hampshire, the temperatures are more consistently cold, which means that the windows are closed until spring and the furnace is running.  Halloween decorations are down and have been replaced with Thanksgiving items.  Fall sports seasons have ended for our student-athletes, and we await the beginning of winter sports.  At PeKu there are new happenings also.

  • Couch Tuber has a new look and article format.  We begin each week by highlighting the top shows for the coming week.  During the week we also make recommendations for one show each
