When you call “managers”, “coaches”…

I remember getting to see it, many years ago at a plant that worked in.  It occurs to me that the word “plant” is  gone from the lexicography.  But that’s another story.

At first the managers the resented the title change, but then the wisdom captured by Deming:

The aim of supervision should be to help people and machines and gadgets to do a better job

How many times have I sent, or been sent, out onto “the playing field” without really calling the play, or everyone knowing what the play was?

Summer rolls on

We’re a third of the way through summer, and this morning, the cicadas are singing.  It feels peaceful.  There isn’t much to be done, and its nice to just sit on the back porch and pitter.

Real Freedom

It’s been a very busy year.  I’ve had the pleasure to be paid for covering the Daytona 500, March Madness, The Masters, and tomorrow, The Coke Zero 400.  We’re only 63 days until kick-off of Georgia Football.

Today we celebrate Independence Day, so I will remind you and myself that real freedom comes through Jesus Christ, who has the power to reconcile us to God, that we might obtain the fullness of Life that was created by Him.

Have fun and don’t blow off any of your fingers!

A Merman I should turn to be

Hurray I awake from yesterday
Alive but the war is here to stay
So my love Ramona and me
Decide to take our last walk thru the noise to the sea
Not to die but to be reborn
Away from the lands so battred and torn
Forever forever
Oh say can you see it’s really such A mess
Every inch of earth is A fighting nest
Giant pencil and lipstick-Tube shaped things
Continue to rain and cause screamin’ pain
And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red
As our feet find the sand
And the sea is straight ahad
Straight up ahead
Well it’s too bad that our friends can’t be with us today
Well it’s too bad
The machine that we built
Would never save us that’s what they say
That’s why they ain’t comin’ with us today
And they also said it’s impossible
For A man to live and breathe undrerwater
Forever was A main complaint
Yeah and they also threw this in my face they said
Anyway you know good and well
It would be beyond the will of god
And the grace of the king
Grace of the king

So my darling and I make love in the sand
To salute the last moment ever on dry land
Our machine it has done its work played its part well
Without A scratch on our body when we bid it farewell
Starfish and giant foams greet us with A smile
Before our heads go under we take our last look at the killing noise
Of the out of style
The out of style out of style oh yeah

So down and down and down and down we go
Hurry my darlin’ we mustn’t be late
For the show
Neptune champion games to an aqua world is so my dear
Right this way smiles A mermaid
I can hear atlantis full of cheer
Atlantis full of cheer
I can hear atlantis full of cheer
Oh yeah
