Thank you for accepting my invitation to this meeting.  The topic may be an important one.  In fact, this may be the most important meeting you have attended in a while.  The objective of this meeting is to explain a concept publicized by #DavidGrady, an information security manager, who has started a movement that I would like to encourage you to join.  It is called No MAS.

Protecting Personally Identifiable Information (PII) While Moving Internationally

Perhaps this is why we are sensitive to the unnecessary publication of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Some of our clients have been unpleasantly surprised to see their name and other personal information gathered from their shipping documentation appear in Internet searches. The reaction is understandable given our quest for and right to privacy.

Status Update: I’m Moving.

Moving Tips: How to Move and Keep the Kids Happy at the Same Time.

You’re moving, so these days, you’re constantly juggling. You should be able to pack up your entire house, move and unpack, and still maintain your status as Parent of the Year, right?

And although it may seem like the moving process is packing in all your time, be sure to make some time for your kids, and involve them as best as you can.

Moving Tips: How to Label Boxes

Forget thinking outside the box; today, we actually want you to think on the box. Planning ahead about the way you label your boxes, and actually taking a little bit of extra time to properly label can save you lots of time when you go to unpack. Too often we think, I’ll remember what I packed! In reality, once you have reached your destination, you will be surrounded by boxes that all look alike, going on less sleep than normal, and amped up on caffeine. There is no way you will remember what you packed in each box.

Tips from the Pro: Hang Onto Your TV Boxes.

Your television was designed by top engineers. Did you know that the original protective box and packing materials that come with your television were also designed by top engineers?

After you find the perfect spot in your house for your TV, find a clean, dry, out-of-the-way spot to store your TV box, such as your garage, attic or basement.
