Pearl Harbor VS 9-11

Kids born Dec 7th 1941 were 19 when I was born. I think about Pearl Harbor but don’t remember it. Kids born Sep 11th 2001 are 15 now. They probably think about 9-11 in a similar way that I think of Pearl Harbor. Being aware of this makes me think  of Pearl Harbor differently.

My grandfather was born in 1895. He possibly knew people born in the 1700’s He definitey knew people who knew people born in the 1700’s.

Life is short, but at the same time, history really didn’t happen that long ago.

 

All Show & No Go?

After my post yesterday, I was so busy at work that I hardly was online at all all day. We have training this whole week and half the next for a new system that was installed. So I probably won’t be online much during that time. Seems like I picked the wrong day for my Gung Ho! post.

Woke up 15 minutes early  this morning, (4:45) and did my normal walk, and actually got to swim this morning. The north has been rough and the ladder has been out at the dock, so I haven’t been swimming in the mornings, but this morninng, the hotel staff wasn’t there yet so I swam in the pool. Although I’m sure it’s OK, I don’t like swimming in the pool with the staff there.

After the dust settles, I’ll post a post about the job I applied for, got, and probably won’t take.

Have a great day!!

Different Turn

I love this blog. Every morning before work, I post. But I’veb een seriously boring, I think. All I talk about pretty much, is the weather and other boring crap. 

I remember the days when I spent a lot more time on this blog, scouring other blogs, leavig comments, and trying to get comments on this blog.

All of my blogger friends are very old friends, and I haven’t made any new friends in quite a while.

I am going to spend less time on Facebook, and more time on this blog.

That being said, I mowed the yard this weekend, I think the last time I mowed the yard, we still had the boat (we’ve been using landscapers. And it was a crappy football weekend. Redskins lost.

You’ll be seeing and hearing more from me. 

Have a great week!

Perspective

It’s Friday finally.This week went quick. That’s nice for a change. Usually, the workweek lasts about a million years, and the weekend is a few nanoseconds. Although week before last a co-worker took vacation, and while the week seemed very long, my co-worker came back this week, and it didn’t seem like  he was gone very long at all. Explain that to me.

Today Cayman Airways is christening a new plane, I can get off work early to attend the ceremony. Sounds like a plan!

Have a good weekend!

Coulda Fooled Me

I got home yesterday and I thought it was a Monday . I was thinking “This is a long week already, and it’s only Monday”. Then I started thinking about it, and finally asked the wife.

Sooooo today’s the ol’ Hump Day, and that’s a good thing.

In other news , I  got a serious job offer yesterday , but the salary is too low and I’m going to decline , unless the salary goes way up.

That’s it, have  great day!

Broken Toe

Several weeks ago, I dropped a glass bottle of water on my foot. Hurt pretty bad, bruised and swelled. Saturday, I stubbed my little toe on the same foot  Dang, it hurts bad now, and is swollen again, making me limp with shoes on, flip flops are Ok.

Pretty sure something’s broken down there. Oh well.

Doesn’t look bad, but hurts like the dickens!

Monday. Bad football weekend.

Every football game was a disappointment . Except Kansas City beating Denver.Skins lost to Dallas..

And it’s Monday. I  was just getting started in weekend mode.

I cleared the bush outside our fence. I  was going to mow the yard, but it rained and I  didn’t. You shoulda seen me clearing bush, ripping trees from the ground with my bare hands, roots and all!

Oh I don’t want to go to work today. 

Have a good week. 

Iceland Supermarkets In The News

LINK On the BBC this morning, there was a story about a chain of grocery stores called Iceland interfering with business of Iceland, the country.

They are currently preventing the real Iceland’s department of tourism from advertising, because they hold the trademark for the name ICELAND. Among other things over the years.

I say screw the food store. They can’t hold a trademark on a proper name.

The first word of this post is a link to the BBC article.

In other news, IT’S FRIDAY!! And payday!

Have a good weekend!
