Once you’ve finished scratching your head over this title, we’ll begin…
You good? Okay, here we go.
The rain has stopped falling in Niagara Falls – for the most part – and while we have emerged unscathed compared to many of our neighbors, the dark skies have not left us. In fact, they have acted as harbingers of the cold, dark winter that lies ahead.
Niagara has the Festival of Lights and the natural wonder of our parks and waterways to attract visitors, but for those of us working in the hospitality industry winter is an annual challenge that chills us to our frozen cores.
Before you ask, this isn’t actually a negative post. I’ve just returned to work after two glorious days off and let me tell you, folks, its The Walking Dead without the zombies around here. Then again, there was an insurance agents’ conference here today, so there were a few creatures that feast on human suffering around…
A brief recap:
- Insurance agents appear to have a better grasp of math than their banking counterparts. I know, I had trouble believing it too.
- Many of them, however, have the same “I wouldn’t spit on this bellman if he was on fire!” attitude going on.
- Strangely though, insurance agents tip better than bankers – but not by much.
One last thing, the hotel’s management held their annual “Town Hall” meetings to fill us working-class drones in on new developments and to assess where we are as a company and where we need to be. We’ll be revamping most of the rooms this year, which is always good, especially when you consider the beating they endure at the hands of the Modern Traveler – and his crazed rugrats after they’ve been hopped-up on Red Bull.
Sadly, my suggestion that we build a “Red Room of Pain” wing was rebuffed, but I still maintain the concept has merit…
TIME FOR OTHER BUSINESS..
A shout-out to my blog buddy, Kristen Lamb and her best-selling tome, We Are Not Alone: The Writer’s Guide to Social Media. Give it a try, folks. You won’t be disappointed…

ONE LAST BIT OF NEWS…
The next chapter of my first foray into fiction is up and running at Wattpad. I have a long way to go as a fiction writer, and I could use all the constructive criticism I can get, so help me out, okay?
