in Food for Thought Friday, Learning

Earlier this week we were away on a family vacation getting all smart and stuff, courtesy of the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Case in point: who knew there were so many uses for the word “wahoo”? Not only is it a shrub or a large makerel, apparently wahoo might also mean:


Extract of WahooA tonic for people with digestive problems, circa 1860 . . .

(Um, maybe this is where the phrase “out the wahoo” originated?)





sign with camp wahoo on tent. . . or a place to go camping.







While we were away learning these amazing facts, there was some good edification happening online too.

Also, I’m pleased to have been asked to submit a guest post on Building Trusting Customer-Consultant Relationships  for the AEA365 Tip-A-Day by and for Evaluators blog. Thanks to June Gothberg, Senior Research Associate at Western Michigan University (go, Broncos!) for inviting me to share a few trust-building tips with her professional colleagues.
