      Facebook recently announced an algorithmic change that will significantly reduce the organic reach of Facebook Pages for businesses. Simply put, this means that reaching potential customers via the Business Page has essentially become pay to play.

      She is gone, but her cookie recipe is not.

      Hubby and I are experiencing what I call the ‘holiday upheaval.’ I don’t know what happens at your house at this time of year, but at our house, bins and boxes deck the halls, and the kitchen is a factory with a production line of cookie tins and ribbons, where we sweatily cook by the gallon for potlucks and parties.
