Once in a While

I Should Know Better

Whoever said you shouldn’t talk religion or politics is totally right. But these hot topics are brought up in many daily conversations. A customer came in and, as is sometimes the case, some political comment came up and we starting talking. I should know better than […]



Emotions and the Sky

Mar 9th, 2018 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I travel west on my way home, and have had the opportunity to see awesome, beautiful sunsets. Sometimes the sun is a gigantic, orange ball surrounded by vivid red, yellow, pink and purple. The scenes often help to remind me that even at the end […]



I Know Somebody

Did you ever learn from an experience that was totally surprising and unpleasant? Kind of a “who would have thought?“ moment? These experiences are often followed by you saying, “Oh, well, live and learn.” Hopefully these gained experiences are  teaching moments and knowledge builders. Life’s […]



Outside — Inside

Ever pick up a piece of fruit — like a nice, shiny apple — and start thinking about how good it’s going to taste but then you take a big bite only to find it’s so tart it makes your eyes water and you spit […]
