There is a management mantra know as K.I.S.S., Keep it Simple Silly. I live by this. Don't make things so complicated for yourself that it's either too difficult to manage or simply just no fun. Life should be fun. I know that we all have difficult times and face many challenges, some more than others, but don't make it harder by making things convoluted and confusing. Keep it simple.

When I started writing about beer, I had to do it the hard way. The internet was in its infancy and virtually every shard of information I got about beer came from chasing it down, visiting the breweries and talking to the brewers. Of course, I miss the tight-knit connection I developed with our local brewers. I still remain firmly in touch, despite gleaning most of my information from brewery websites, social media and the like. I didn't even have a cell phone back then; they weren't invented yet. Fast forward to today. The internet has made it easier to find information, be in touch and stay in touch.

I am a big fan of Theatre in the Rough's productions of Shakespeare, and this new production of "Henry V" does not disappoint. A sometimes brilliant director, Aaron Elmore knows these plays better than anyone else in Juneau and always seems to uncover new facets to Shakespeare's lines. So let me say right off the bat: Go see this play. It's one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, and our Theatre-in-the-Ruffians do a good job of bringing it to life.

Conductor Jeremy Briggs Roberts' career path took an unexpectedly sharp turn during his first year in graduate school. At that point in his life, he had completed a double major in politics and music at the University of Puget Sound, and though playing the piano was a big part of his life, he had decided to pursue a career in law. Then he came face-to-face with a force of nature: Hungarian-American conductor Peter Sandor Eros.
