Adrian Elementary

Friday, September 30th, 2016


First of a kind father/son school program took place today. I’m so proud of my son Peter and the great job he did with the children of Adrian Elementary School in South Euclid, Ohio. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this a very special visit.

Kindness in Business

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016


Thank you to the Business Referral Network of Northeast Ohio for the kind invitation to talk with them about the importance of kindness in all facets of their business this morning. These fifteen business leaders inspire each other to be the best at what they do and also to help the local community.

Bogart’s Second Book is Now Ready for Sale

Monday, September 26th, 2016


Bogart’s second in a series of eight books is now available for sale.
I am really pleased with this book. The story follows Bogart as he goes for a walk and chases away every potential friendship that comes his way. He gets up the next day to make amends with these newfound friends.

City of Independence Fall Festival

Saturday, September 24th, 2016


We were at the City of Independence Fall Festival. Of course Bogart is a huge hit to the hundreds of families in attendance.
The four puppet shows which began at 1 PM and were performed every hour were loved by children and adults alike. The puppet show, “In the Beginning, Middle and End, It’s Always a Good Time to Make a New Friend” was met with rave reviews.

Losing a father and a sister to Alzheimer’s, Bogart and I were joined by my sister to walk in Oberlin, Ohio to help put an end to this disease.
What a nice crowd of people on a perfect autumn day in Northeast Ohio.


Peace on Top

Wanting to finish off the top of the Kindness Bus just like he did with the original bus, my son Peter is making sure “peace” can be seen throughout the universe. I certainly hope it has that effect.

Much Needed Break

Sunday, September 18th, 2016


When you love what you do, you don’t necessarily need to take much of a break. It has been 7 1/2 years since I started One Million Acts of Kindness and have never gone away on a vacation longer than a day or two. This week I decided to do just that. I completely relaxed for an entire week to regenerate my batteries. I loved it’s so much I might try it again in a year or two.
