Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

a work in progress

Conference Attendee Tips — Illustrated Journaling, Golden Age mysteries, Boat Shows and More

Naomi & Cousin Ronni Circa 1950

Yes, I’m retired, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped learning — or attending conferences. Whether it’s the annual Florida Watercolor Society convention, and Urban Sketchers event, Emily’s List conference, or the Agatha Christie International Festival, much of what I learned about making the most of my time […]

Life Explained: A 3-Legged Stool

I’ve never understood people who take full credit for their accomplishments, as though getting top grades, running the fastest mile, being the most productive developer on the team, exceeding sales targets or alphabetizing by author and within genre your thousands of physical, wonderful to hold, books was a solo performance. And I’ll admit to cringing […]

Moving On: Tying Up The Loose Ends Of My Career

It’s A Start!

After several years of winding down my career gradually, I’m finally ready to pull the plug 100%. May 21, 2018 will hereafter be known as my retirement date.

I’ve had a really wonderful time, done my best to make a difference, and made some great friends along the way, but now […]

Naomi’s Christmas: Restorative Aloneness And A Childhood Spent In Retail

A Page From Bloom’s Camera 1950 Catalog

Ron left the house this morning before dawn, headed to Redmond, OR to spend Christmas with a range of Wallaces. Time moves more slowly when I’m alone, and it’s a very rare treat. Having a few days at home completely on my own hasn’t happened in years, […]

Reprise: A Great Miracle Happened Here!

Take Your Chances, Win Some Gelt

Chanukah 2017, With My HR Tech Wishes For 2018

Have you ever played the Chanukah game of spin the dreidel? With or without the modified rules derived from “spin the bottle?” Did you know that the four letters, one on each side of the dreidel, make up […]

A Layman’s Thoughts On American Healthcare

At the end of 2009, as the ACA was being born, while I was recovering from a fully insured (but dreadfully painful post-op) rotator cuff surgery, I shared my two cents worth on the coming of the ACA. With the healthcare debate now front and central in the GOP-controlled Congress, which is committed to […]

Strategic Planning Is A Mindset!

Strategic planning is a mindset which can be applied to great swaths of your life. If you’re willing to do the heavy lifting, just like in business, strategic planning provides much improved outcomes.

With all of my exciting plans for Christmas and New Year’s taking a back seat to my second head/chest cold of […]

Death By Lousy HRM

Preface

I don’t know what got into me. Without any planning of plot or characters, without any outline of key points chapter by chapter and, quite frankly, without knowing what the hell I was doing, I just started writing. The first chapter was posted 12-6-2016 (the finale on 12-30-2016), and then the fat really […]

Death By Lousy HRM — Finale

[Chapter I, Chapter II, Chapter III, Chapter IV, Chapter V, Chapter VI , Chapter VII, Chapter VIII, Chapter IX, Chapter X, Chapter XI, Chapter XII, Chapter XIII, Chapter XIV, Chapter XV, Chapter XVI, Chapter XVII and Chapter XVIII in case you missed them.]

And there it was! DCI Fritz saw the way forward. Without forensic […]

[Chapter I, Chapter II, Chapter III, Chapter IV, Chapter V, Chapter VI , Chapter VII, Chapter VIII, Chapter IX, Chapter X, Chapter XI, Chapter XII, Chapter XIII, Chapter XIV, Chapter XV, Chapter XVI and Chapter XVII in case you missed them.]

There was silence as each of them absorbed the implications of what had just […]
