    No, I didn't hit the lottery so we're stuck in Florida. Molokini is a great dive spot. I'm jealous. On your way to Hana, will you and MW be stopping at the Seven Sacred Pools to skinny dip?

    You remind me of the best consulting project I ever had. It was almost a living. I was to determine whether the dive boats (and whale watching boats) at Maui were engaged in humpback whale harassment. It involved going out on dive boats to see what they did when whales were around. So as not to blow my cover I had to dive and dive and dive and dive. Molokini and elsewhere. Hated that. All the creatures you mentioned plus a manta ray and sharks.

    Huh?

    What's the deal with the job posted by Dandy?

    Director - Southern Tier East Regional Planning Development Board - Binghamton, NY

    EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:
    A) Graduation from a regionally accredited or New York State registered college of university with a Bachelor’s Degree in planning or related field such as architecture, engineering, geography, public administration or social science and 10 years of experience in state, regional or local planning; OR
    B) Graduation from a regionally accredited or New York State Registered college or university with a Master’s Degree in planning or related field such as architecture, engineering, geography, public administration or social science and 6 years of experience in state, regional or local planning;


    Requiring graduation from a New York College/University or Regionally accredited school? I thought that place loved carpetbaggers???

    Did you get 2 weeks from the secretary? Good luck. We have been hiring two positions (Zoning Inspector and Zoning Secretary) over the past months and we have received over 250 apps for each...

    We issued a warning to lay off of his favorite topic until the end of the month, for his own sake. I sympathize with the snark, but let's give him a break for a bit.

    Separate departments actually. But the vacancies may result in a merging, which is going to ruffle feathers in the short term, but will hopefully prove beneficial in the long term. And I've been asked for my "wisdom" in how this plays out. Due they want the truth, or the easy way out?

    Wouldn't it just make more sense to move Bessie's remains to the "Large Animal Isolation Facility"?

    I can take a guess, but that might be considered sexual harassment from my chair..
