Connecting The Dots

Last night I had an awesome event for Loss Prevention Magazine. At dinner, I met a young lady that worked for Kmart/Sears and we struck up a conversation. I explained to her that I had a unique relationship with her company, and asked her if she knew what the K in Kmart stood for. She […]

We All Need A Little Rhinoplasty

Jimmy Durante had a big nose. (You might want to google that.) It was his trade mark. My nose Is normal, and I try to keep my opinions to myself, but this blog will serve as a reminder that the world needs you to be the best you. And fixing others is not in your […]

Missed It by That Much

If you were a child in the ’60s, this was a phrase that you heard Maxwell Smart, or Agent 86, use quite often in the series Get Smart. I can still hear Max say, “Missed it by that much” as he held two fingers close together. In leadership, there is not a great deal of […]

You’re Never More Than Two Feet From Success

two feet from success

…as long as you put your best foot forward! All of us do things in our youth that, upon reflection, might not have been a great idea. I am no exception. It started out innocently enough… A friend of mine and I (who will remain anonymous, but you know who you are) would go to […]

It’s Hard to Get Up with the Get Down Feeling!

Get Up

So Get up offa that Thing and Dance—You’ll Feel Better! Every now and then, I am struck with a conundrum, and whether you believe it or not, so are you. Do I get up? I am not talking about when that annoying alarm goes off in the morning. That’s why they invented the snooze alarm. […]

We’ve Gone Nose, Ear, and Thought Blind!

Dr. Dale Nose Ear Thought Blind

I love a clever turn of phrase, and Febreze has hit a home run with their nose-blind commercial. It makes perfect sense that what is familiar to us, something we’ve grown accustomed to, sticks out like a sore thumb; or, more appropriately, a stinky smell to others. During the holidays several years ago, my child bride […]

Going Down for the Count

Dr. Dale Henry Going Down for the Count

I’m a glass half-full guy! I figured it this way—you can’t fix something until it’s broken. If it doesn’t break, well, we can evaluate it and improve the process. My starter wife, Debra (my first and only wife), has a beautiful weeping cherry tree in the center island at our home. I call it Debra’s […]

If First You Don’t Succeed, You Haven’t Failed Enough!

If at first you don't succeed, you haven't failed enough.

As a humorist, I want to clear up a very important misconception: I am not a motivational speaker. I drive high content through laughter and use stories to help make the point; but, truthfully, you have to motivate yourself. It’s a proven fact that we retain things longer if they make us laugh, because it […]

Shazam – It Ain’t Rocket Science

Well, it’s road trip time. Every month or so, my wife and I love to do a road trip. So we load up our 24 foot Mercedes Sprinter, and off we go. Last week, while driving through Arkansas, we hit one humdinger of a thunder storm, and, of course, it had to be at night. […]

The Duh Syndrome: Differentiating Us Hillbillies

The Duh Syndrome

This is the second installation of things that people say to their customers that sticks in my craw. Every now and then I get surprised. I’m not talking about getting a present from that great aunt who died ten years ago. I’m talking about stuff that happens that you weren’t quite expecting it. They fall […]
