Cathy’s Corner – December 2018

Cathy’s Corner – December 2018

From the desk of: Cathy Coloff

I’m often asked about our newsletter and who does it for us. I’m always proud to answer with the exception of a few guest articles now and then, it’s developed and created entirely in-house by our own IT Radix team. As you can imagine, this is no easy task, but happily, we have a number of creative individuals that make each newsletter happen. You may have noticed that each quarter we play off a theme that helps get our creative juices flowing and allows us to have some fun in the process. Of course, this quarter was no exception. Who doesn’t remember silly Halloween songs like “Monster Mash” or the theme song to Ghostbusters?

Our intent in creating these newsletters is to educate our clients and prospects about all things IT. From my perspective, it’s a labor of love. I love learning new things and sharing that knowledge. I’m a sucker for a corny joke, and I particularly enjoy visually interesting things—be it art, a document or a simple image. So, as we wrap up another year, I thought it appropriate to ask you what you’d like to read about in one of our upcoming newsletters. Have a topic that interests you or that you’d like us to dig into deeper? Let us know by emailing us at [email protected]

While my son discovered the secret of Santa last January, he’s still compiling a wish list of Christmas gifts. What’s on your wish list? As I’ve grown older and our house has filled with stuff, I’ve come to realize that it’s not the stuff that matters but rather it’s the moments. Try explaining that to an impulsive eleven-year-old. I keep trying and occasionally I see glimmers of success; for example, when he suggests a family hug instead of me suggesting it. Thankfully, he’s not too old or cool for hugs yet; but I fear it’s coming!

Let me wrap up this quarterly with the corny line—at IT Radix we make beautiful music with you...our readers, clients, friends, and family. I know each of us has our own spiritual beliefs and customs, so I’m going to honor mine by saying, Merry Christmas to you! I wish you all the best during this holiday season and the new year to come.
