Major deployment of new applications at work is completed, as well as most of the "clean up" afterward. I may actually get to relax this weekend!


Then an Irish seven course meal - a six pack and a potato. Grab a six pack, a bag of chips, then sit down and watch a game . . .


A few beers (Octoberfest season), some pretzels, and a hockey game were all consumed this weekend!

Thinking of you and your Orioles at the end of this regular MLB season, USS Mike. It looks like the Tigers are positioned to get into the record books again with >110 losses. With 6 games left, your Orioles are standing at 105 losses, but will probably not supplant Detroit as the worst team in MLB *this* year.

You should have taken my bet earlier this season.

ETA: Hey Kansas-how about them Royals?

Oh, great... What a horrible, but wonderful Monday it is.

Just over a year ago, I hired this great employee who went the extra mile, did everything we asked. He wasn't perfect, but he was a great asset to our organization. Now, after a huge salary bump this last year he has been offered and accepted a position out of state for 50% more and doing less. Happy for the guy, it is where his family is and all his friends. But, man, it is going to be hard to replace him. We have been able to get him from where he was a year ago to be able to be qualified for this great position. A true bittersweet moment in my career.

I had to put that somewhere, and you guys are a great sounding board.

Maybe he'll come back some day. Or maybe he'll be in a position to help you.

Yeah, weren't we talking about 115 losses for the over/under?

Less than 2 weeks until Opening Night for the NHL and my Carolina Hurricanes!

Yeah, bittersweet is a great description. Send him out of the nest to fly on his own.

Yeah, I hear ya. But if someone is offered 50% more-for doing less-they'd be foolish not to accept it. Especially if the location was nearer their 'home'. If he's leaving after a huge salary bump to get 50% more somewhere else, that's probably also an indicator that he was substantially underpaid previously too. I'm happy for him, but it's a let down for you and your organization.

Sorry man. I cut it back to 105 over/under after you hesitated. Too bad you didn't take the bet. Sucker.

I had that experience constantly in my Regional Manager position - the best employees got promoted out of the operation because I made honest assessments of their potential and performance. But I smiled and said, what comes around, goes around - good karma.
In return we got a lot of new recruits who were interesting people and our recruitment process screened out any truly negative people. I put a lot of time and effort into that too.
So we chugged along with some rookies and some steady but average workers and mostly had very good morale among the troops. When their union went on strike my operation had the fewest problems with vandalism, etc. and the least interpersonal bitterness when everyone returned to work. I take that as evidence that looking after their hopes and asperations pays off in other ways.

I have noticed an increasing arbitrariness in the categories of sentient beings being greeted. Accordingly, a political correctness adviser has been dispatched to educate our brother Orm.

But the point is well made. The dead are completely under represented. This is another minority group deserving recognition. Or maybe even a majority group ...? Let us not discriminate against the non-sentient!
