    Happy birthday zman

    So much post election activity going on we almost lost track. Happy birthday!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Hoppy birthday, bro. Hopefully you'll check in at some point...
    I found you a new motto from a sign hanging on their wall…"Drink coffee: do stupid things faster and with more energy"

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Thanks Guys... I have been inactive for so long, I wasn't sure if you all remembered.
    I do lurk though and I will try to check in a bit more.

    I will celebrate today with:
    - An internal meeting to choose new employee insurance.
    - Drafting a white paper outlining options to sever ties with a local non-profit
    - Weekly one-on-one yelling match with the Dept Head
    - And a nice disciplinary meeting with my Enforcement officer whom I sent home this week on admin leave...

    No rest for the wicked...
    Tonight, we drink Boddingtons and Scotch!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

    Happy (belated) Birthday!!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
