Global Swarming: Holiday Mania

Let me start by saying I'm not a Scrooge. I was raised in a family in which we celebrated Christmas, and I still enjoy many of the related traditions, particularly because of the memories they bring to mind. I also relish the general disruption of life that takes place during this manic season. The mundane routine, especially at the office, goes right out the window as we focus on parties, ...

The WWWild World of Goblins, eBay and ISS

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Elaine Foxwell.] OK, I'm the first to admit that surfing the Internet is not high on my list of extracurricular activities. I'm a bibliophile. I’ve had a love affair with books since I was about eight years old and read Edgar Rice Burroughs’s The Cave Girl. I have nearly 600 books stacked in bookshelves. Now, the collection is starting to pile onto my ...

Keep It Clean

[A guest blog spot by ISS Editor Drew Whitney.] I just returned from a trip to Florida and a visit to a self-storage facility where my mother-in-law stored her belongings. While rifling through her unit and moving things around, one of my kids, naturally, had to use the bathroom. No problem, we’ll just ask to use a restroom. I tapped gently on the office door but there was no answer, so I entered ...

Back From the Big Easy

I return from a week-long sojourn in New Orleans to find the new ISS website is alive and doing well. Response, so far, has been positive, with users expressing gratitude for the ease in navigation. While I endorse the organization and simplicity of the design, there's something about this new page that seems antiseptic to me, cold. But so long as folks can find what they need when they need it, ...

You’re Living in What? A Self-Storage Pod!?

[A guest blog spot by ISS Managing Editor Elaine Foxwell.] Example of dry British humor: Two men are leaning against the bar having a drink. The first says, “I buried my wife yesterday.” The second says, “Oh, that’s too bad.” The first replies laconically, “Had to. Dead, you know.” OK, so not many folks on this side of the pond may find that hilarious, but I do. Recently, I read about a new ...

Storage Spooktacular

What I'm about to tell you will come as a total shock. Be seated. Have a fan at the ready. I'm a freak about Halloween. Yes, really. Those of you who don't know me are thinking, "So what?" Those of you who do are probably chuckling to yourself, because you know the above is really an understatement. Freak doesn't cover it. Fanatic? Maybe. Think of it this way: If Halloween were a person, I'd be ...

Self-Storage Potluck

[A guest blog spot by ISS Editor Drew Whitney.] At the end of last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Greater Northeastern Conference and Trade Show, sponsored by the Massachusetts Self Storage Association. Despite the higher than normal autumn temperatures, the winds were blowing and a torrential downpour set the scene for a dull, gloomy day. Nevertheless, inside the Sheraton Hotel in ...
