Do not need a plan. Will just pick a few and move on …

March is Women's History Month, but it was just a coincidence that my favorite Banter Bites this month were all related to women and women's empowerment (think about the fact no one ever refers to "men's empowerment").

  • March 2: Gendered Potatoes? (Not A Recipe) – I do not know about you, but I never thought potatoes had genders … but apparently, many people do.
  • March 8: Celebrate Today. Change Tomorrow. – Given my experience as an executive in a male-dominated industry, it is no surprise that my perspective of women in leadership is very different from Red's.
  • March 18: Is Feeling Safe Too Much To Ask? – A horrific event in London brings home the fact "being safe" is different for men and women, and explains why I sold my Ferrari?

Wishing you a merry everything and a happy always!

This is one of Red’s favorite Banter Bites in large part because of Black’s “corny” puns, but also because fresh corn is a summer staple – whether cooked on the grill or in the microwave, whether eaten on its own or as a primary ingredient in refreshing summer salads

This may be one of the corniest things you’ll ever read.

BANTER BITE BACKSTORY: Red already fights technology at every turn, preferring to keep her ostrich head in the sand, plus, she finds Artificial Intelligence (AI) scary; whereas Black knows ignoring reality merely postpones the inevitable, so she’s started playing with AI to understand it better …
