Whether you ride a motorcycle or drive a pickup truck or anything in between, one thing all our vehicles have in common is a thirst for fuel. Some have a pretty voracious appetite while others are sippers but if you're going to go, you need to feed the thirst.

I keep seeing illegal Facebook contests from businesses in the local area and it's time to address it. I would hate for anyone, especially someone I know or have worked with in the community, have their their Facebook page shut down. Not to mention it's not fair to the businesses that are conducting their contest correctly.

What is Cloud Computing?
By now, we've all heard about the subject of Cloud Computing. Working in the Cloud simply means that you are accessing servers, software and technology via the Internet.
It's something that most of us are already using on a daily basis when we access our bank accounts and pay our credit card bills online; or when we use Facebook and other social media websites.
That's the infamous Cloud — you access it with a browser from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection and you log in to use applications that you do not own and that are stored elsewhere to retrieve your data.

Most small businesses operate too often by the "seat of their pants" and don't have enough policies. Last week, we heard all over the news channels about a nurse at a senior living facility who refused to offer CPR to a resident. I know the story is complicated at best. What I am sure of is that it set off a firestorm of controversy about the topic. Should an employee always follow protocol, even if they find it objectionable, immoral or deadly? Mind you, we don't have enough information to form a final opinion in this specific case. Then we heard a new headline about Tim Hortons restaurant refusing to let a teenager use their phone to call for help during an asthma attack – again, quoting company policy. In the marketing game, managers quoting policy does not work as a defense of the policy.
