Your Feets Too Big July 24, 2010

So I walk on to the campus and one of the guys working here, we’ll call him Stanley, is wearing sandals. It is well over 95 degrees so that is not completely unreasonable. It doesn’t belong in a professional environment, but we’ll be flexible. So I am getting ready to leave and “Stanley” walks into the room with myself and four other guys, “Stanley” proceeds to take off his sandals and rub lotion on his feet.

Not the thing to do……………….I nearly fell over.

So after 2008’s little scare I have been avoiding a revisit to the doctor. Well,  next Monday morning and I’ll get another blood test, which means Tuesday may or may not be a nice day.  Waiting for next week is going to be rough . Hopefully, next week will be easy. Not looking forward to it.

I saw what I am convinced was a dead coyote on the Highway this morning during the drive in.

The Stock Market is Down April 1, 2008

So that means it’s time to start investing in the market. Of course as soon as I finish my annual portfolio adjustments the market will plummet like a meteor. But, I have moved some things from bonds to stocks, made my annual retirement contribution and bought some shares in some companies that have spent the past month or so buying back shares of their company. I changed brokers so I am going to go on the assumption I will get positive ju-ju out of it.

Ask me in a year if all these changes were the right thing to do.

I have posted before that I used to work for a large Blue Machine Company during the eighties. That they were some of the dumbest people I have ever encountered in one place and had created a culture of dumb. Well, the Times has written a article that expands further the sad and pathetic behavior that I encountered. Read it here and make sure you mention to the frightened people I used to work with that,  I still don’t respect them.

Saying Goodbye September 17, 2007

I have come to the not so unique conclusion, that a large part of life is saying goodbye to people that have value to us. Maybe it is having lived a few years and just experienced it enough times. But as I think of it, I have said good-bye to nearly everyone who I have ever cared about. As I get older, I assume this will happen more and more.

In Heaven, the cooks are French, the lovers are Italian, the engineers are German, the bureaucrats are Swiss and the police are English.
