Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

[I’ll get back to writing about my life after HR tech, about the murders I’m encountering along the way (as in murder mysteries), and about my increasingly portfolio life style, on Monday. But before we get to 2017, here’s the last reflection for 2016, on my childhood in the 50’s. The memories of those early […]

Belated Reflections For Thanksgiving 2016

[If this post looks familiar, you’re not imagining things. I’ve done an annual Thanksgiving post for several years now because giving thanks and counting my blessings becomes more important with each passing year. As the body gets creakier and less obedient, and as pain levels become ever more challenging, writing this post is therapeutic. […]

Prep Now For Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, And The “Days Of Awe” — 5777

[Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday, 10/2, and continues through sundown on Tuesday, 10/4. And thus begins the Hebrew year 5777. Yom Kippur beings at sundown on Tuesday, 10/11 and continues through sundown on Wednesday, 10/12/17.]

Last year’s Jewish High Holy Days occurred right when I was celebrating my 70th birthday, so I […]

Women In Tech, ‘Firing Line’, And Naomi’s World

And We Still Need A “Village!”

Some of you may know that I started my professional career in 1967 as a programmer trainee at then John Hancock Life Insurance in Boston. I was part of a trainee class that was made up primarily of new grads from Ivy League universities with degrees in such […]

Annual Reprise — Father’s Day Thoughts: Remembering Jack Samuel Bloom

[When I wrote the original version of this post for Father’s Day 2010, I never planned to update and then reprise this post annually. But as each Father’s Day approaches, my sense of loss increases. With no family members of my father’s generation still living, my own sense of mortality grows.

I […]

From Human Resource Management To Worker Management Or ???

If you’ve read even a few of my posts, then you know I focus pretty consistently on an issue that lurks, quietly but dangerously, waiting to sabotage our best efforts to achieve improved organizational outcomes through improved workforce performance. The villain of this piece is the sloppy, inconsistent, ill-defined and rampant misuse of terminology. The […]

A Bloom’s Christmas: Inventory Management And Retail Retold

[I’ll get back to writing about #EnSW, especially #HRtech, right after the New Year, but my recent strolls down memory lane have been part of my celebrations and reflections on turning 70, something you only get to do once. I also hope to make a lot more progress in the New Year on freshening my […]

Reflections For Thanksgiving 2015

Being both Jewish and American presents me with two major opportunities each year (so on Rosh Hashanah and now on Thanksgiving) to reflect on how very fortunate I am to live in this amazing country and on what I can do to make it and myself better. For all the problems we’ve got, and […]

Reflections On Turning 70 — I’m Not Going Quietly!

Naomi & Cousin Ronni Circa 1950

I’m turning 70 this week — yes, 70 years old — and that milestone, combined with the natural period of reflection that I always observe around the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, has reminded me of just how truly blessed has been my life, how […]

Reprise: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, And The “Days Of Awe” — 5776

Not only does Yom Kippur begin at sundown on 9/22/2015, but my birthday follows immediately thereafter — 9/24/2015 — and it’s A BIG ONE, 70. It’s the age I always thought of as really old, but of course I’ve now redefined old age to start at 90. It’s another decade of my life coming to […]
