Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

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 […]

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. […]

Remembering 9/11/2001: Let’s Give ’em Hell!

For this 15th anniversary of jihadist Islam’s declaration of war on the United States, I wanted to express my anger at what this war has cost all of us in the loss of privacy and freedom as well as in human lives and treasure. It’s a war whose enemy combatants wear no recognizable uniforms, dwell […]

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 […]

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 […]

Grand Passion Is Essential To Both Great Wine And Enterprise Software

Hunter Valley, Australia

Ron and I spent mid-Feb to mid-March 2016 traveling in New Zealand and Australia, spending most of our time visiting with much-loved friends in both countries who we see far less often than we’d like. Although we have tons of modern ways to keep in touch, there’s just no substitute for […]

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 […]

Israel and Jordan: A Traveller’s Tale

The Bloom Girls And Husbands In Israel

[It’s been three months since I did my last direct client consulting, and I’m loving the transition to industry observer and kibitzer. I’ve got two major blog post series underway — one on persistent errors I see in the underlying object models of far too much […]
