Daily Commute

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 7:15 am

My normal gas station is currently closed for renovations. When I came home last, I decided I would stop for gas on my way in to work. No big deal, I pass several gas stations on the way. I know I have often said that by leaving 10 minutes earlier, I can get to work 20 minutes early. If I leave 10 minutes later, I can get in 20 minutes later.

It time for St. Baldrick’s once again. Wow, another year gone by. I participated in my first St. Baldrick’s event in March 2004. This will be my 8th year participating in local St. Baldrick’s events. To help kids fighting cancer, I’m a volunteer my services as a balloon twister and face painter at locals St. Baldrick’s events.

Pollen Season

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 8:39 am

I have known it was coming for weeks. I am not sure the exact cause, but each year I suffer from spring time allergies. The usual symptoms have been appearing for the past few weeks and I know they will just get worse over the next several weeks until the trees are covered with leaves and a few good rains come and wash away the pollen.

Thinking and problem solving

Filed under: entertainment, Life in General, eLearning — Mike @ 12:17 pm

I went out to lunch and was standing behind an elderly couple having their order filled by an obviously new employee. The husband and wife ordered “the same thing” with a few minor differences. The husband wanted grilled chicken, the wife fried. The husband wanted gravy on his potatoes, the wife didn’t.

Too many coupons

Filed under: entertainment, Life in General — Mike @ 9:26 am

I like to save money. There are some stores and businesses that send out coupons on a regular basis, either via email or in the newspapers and bulk coupon mailers that I use.

One week until daylight savings time begins

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 9:14 am

The days are getting longer. The sun is rising earlier each day and setting later each night. A month ago, I was able to get to work before the sun rose. Now, it is starting to get bright when I leave home and I find myself driving into the sun. A few months ago, I would leave work and drive directly into the setting sun. Now, I only have problems if I leave work later than usual. But with Daylight Savings Time beginning earlier, things will change next week when Daylight Savings time begins. I will once again leave home in the dark but will have no problems getting home before the sun sets.
