The Twist from a Twisted Sister!

Some Personal History with an Interesting "Twist"!

Some Personal History with an Interesting "Twist"!

Back in the Dark Ages ('80s) I sold for Exxon Office Systems.... Their major technological break through was Qwip, the first fax machine and Qyx, the first electronic typewriter. I'll never forget demoing this duo to Levi Strauss for the first time. It really seems hokey now but at the time it was magic. The demo went like this. Type a contract needing a signature on the Qyx and print it out then put it in the Qwip and fax it to my secretary and minutes later the Qwip would ring and the contract would print out with a signature. Walla!I remember looking at...

This number also ends in a zero and it's not 10 or 20.I have visions of one gutter ball after another. I can't commiserate with my niece as she will just tell me to look it up on YouTube. Her answer to everything. My Hubby is...

How a little ole Tiny word can set me off!

How a little ole Tiny word can set me off!

This weekend I must have heard the word Tiny a 100 times? So what is the big whoop Carol? When you are a big person words that never apply stick out in your mind. Now granted this word really rubbed me the wrong way as women were using this word to justify why they don't wear jewelry. (Ridiculous in my opinion!)Being Wobble Jaws I had to explain that the only time Tiny was used in reference to me was when I had a root canal and the Dentist said I had the Tiniest Canals he had ever seen. Lucky me! I...
