Random Thoughts

Well, here it it Tuesday afternoon, and things at work are very quiet. I think that today is some kind of holiday in Europe, and since that is where all of our work comes from, we get to have a quiet day. Now -- that was very handy this morning as we were using a newly updated tool for our processes and it was (and continues to be) laced with multiple errors and omissions. Thankfully, we've all been doing this work for long enough to be able to say, "That's just wrong! Here's how it's supposed to be." But, even with that, it is frustrating.

The dog is at the groomer for the day -- she will look lovely this afternoon when I go get her, and she should be very quiet and sleepy this evening. My car has to go into the shop later in the week -- the cruise control that I had installed last summer has decided to work intermittently and now -- it seems -- not at all. At least it is supposed to be under warranty!

Today is Super Tuesday -- voters in 20 states get to voice their choice for President. I say, "Enjoy that privelege. If you are a Democrat in Michigan or Florida, your primary vote doesn't mean squat." I threatened this morning to form a new party -- the DEMs - Disenfranchised Electorate of Michigan. It sounds good, but where we can raise the billions it would take to make a noticeable noise in the electoral process? Ah well, maybe they will work out this primary stuff before 2012 -- maybe.

Tomorrow is the beginning of Lent, and I expect it to be one of the busiest times of my year -- I am working forty hours a week plus leading a church through an interim ministry. That, along with the usual church busy-ness of the season will wear me down. I feel a few needed days off from church stuff coming just after Easter. Just six weeks away!! HOORAY!

Well, now I've managed to burn a few minutes of company time on this post. Perhaps I will give Free Cell a whirl for a few minutes. Have a great day and hug someone you love.
