The grown-up edition

Catching up

We avoided the Super Bowl this year. We object to the idea of every sporting event (and every awards show, for that matter) having to Make a Statement. Jim served in the military for the right of football players to take a knee, but also for his own right to boycott the NFL this season because they continued to do so. ‘Nuff said. But congratulations to the Eagles on deflating the Deflatriots.


Jim’s commitments prevented him from accepting a role in a show he auditioned for, but there’s good stuff on the horizon. He starts his new job on Feb. 12 and is continuing writing sketches for CCW and working on other creative pursuits.


Put Yourself In There! storytelling workshop was a huge success! Barefoot is Legal activism continues, with the new newsletter being published and events forthcoming. She will be hosting two webinars in the spring for Lorman Institute, BUSINESS GRAMMAR FUNDAMENTALS and ESSENTIAL COMMUNICATION.
