Don’t you hate it?

After the long holiday break, with all the rain, and laying around, and sleeping, now it’s time to go back to work.  I get up early, so I should be going to bed right now, but I’m not tired in the least.

So break out a nice night-cap and let’s upgrade this website to the latest WP4.4 and make a backup.  I got up early this morning in an attempt to avoid this, and now I’m the first kid on my block to have a Drupal 8 site. At least on local dev.  Did that help?, Hell no……

2016 is going to be so GEEKY

The Wedge Effect

Where I live, we have this weather phenomenon known as “The Wedge Effect”.

A High off the Coast North of us, piles up the ocean moisture against the Appalachians, and we end up with soupy weather.  Sometimes raining hard, other times, just a continuous mist.

Anyway, when this happens, the winds are out of the EAST and that means my Georgia Bulldogs Flag is flying backwards, when I’m standing on the front porch.  I hate that shit.

An Inflection Point

My Grandmother died Tuesday, September 29.

She spent over a week in the hospital, but passed away peaceful, without much pain.

I’m grateful for that.

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.
