Last month I attended a conference in London, Ontario about sustainable communities. Since then, I've put a lot of thought into what sustainability means for our 'tiny towns'. These are my thoughts, I would love to hear yours: 1. Many of the people who live in small towns make a lot of assumptions about how much money is brought in through their taxes, and how far their tax dollars really go. Show me a person who bellers "I pay taxes!!" at any town meeting or at any administ... More...

Every where I go I hear how our volunteer bases are dwindling down to nothing.

I am just starting to get the value of "linked in". It is, as I understand it, a sort of a 'facebook' for those who are serious about business. There are rules...never would I post what I am making for supper on the linked in site...(but in case you are curious I have a meaty soup bone simmering on the stove, and will set the bread to rise sometime after dinner...), but by joining the groups that interest me, I'm finding all kinds of reading material to help me in my business and re...

If the goalie plays great, the team gets the credit. If the team loses, the goalie gets the blame.

Well, Christmas is almost here, and I'm probably as excited counting down the days as the wee pajama-clad munchkins are, but for an entirely different reason. You see, January 1st for me marks a new beginning in my life. I'm going for it, and launching Solomon Matthewson Consulting. I consider this the next step in the continuum.  I think I have something to offer.
