Back to basics

March roared into central Virginia this week like a lion.

The snow was heavy and deep. Trees fell and power lines flashed, sizzled, and snapped.

An old shallow fireplace from the late 1700s, now converted to gas logs but once used for cooking and warmth, came back into service.

After the walkways were shoveled there was hot tea to drink.

For ‘snow days’ or quiet times anywhere, we came up with a few ideas of things to do around the FCPA Blog:

Visit our sponsors. Click their colorful banners and find out what they can do for you. The ‘compliance community’ we often talk about wouldn’t exist without these outstanding professionals and service providers. They innovate, solve problems, raise standards, and move us all forward. And for the FCPA Blog, they provide the practical support we need to keep going.

Tour the archives. You’ll find an ‘archive’ tab in the menu bar at the top. Hover over it. There are shortcuts to all the resources the FCPA Blog has to offer.

Tell us what you’d like to talk about. We’ll be starting a series of regular webinars for ethiXbase soon. If there are enforcement and compliance topics you’d like covered, please let us know. As always, we’ll be happy to hear from you.

                                                            *     *     *

By the end of the week, the linemen had again come through. The power was back on, returning the lights, running hot water, and all the other conveniences of modern life.

The shallow fireplace went back to being an historical curiosity. And a reminder to be grateful for our place and time.
