150 years ago today, Lee surrendered to Grant in Appomattox, Virginia. Not the official end to the War Between the States, but pretty close.

Glad, Rabbit, that Fatwa was there for you to call yesterday. Prayers continue for you and BW and if there is anything else I can do, just sing out.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!

It’s that time of year when teaching positions start opening up. I’ve been working on applications and cover letters -- let’s hope something good turns up.

Good luck, Paddy. I’ll second it that something good opens up for you.

Out at my salt mine of employment, two people in our group gave notice this week. I blame it on some “morale busting” employee.

“Morale busting” employee? I think you mean “employee who points out exactly why the morale is so low”.

But “morale busting” is more punchy in a corporate-sounding manner:

• New morale busting paradigm
• Core morale busting competency
• Scalable morale busting
• Morale busting ecosystem
• Customer-driven (or customer-focused) morale busting
• Seamlessly reintermediated morale busting

Because snappy buzz-phrases are the essence of effective corporate communications.

Drive-by Evenin’ Greetin’s!

Just read an email from my sister responding to teh tale of two funerals that I sent to Fatwa. (Copies available from Fatwa on request). She read it to her husband said they lol’d a couple of times. She said “This should be a book!” Ha! She has no idea that I have been chronicling teh Crackhouse Mansion for years. I had to quit writing them when it quit being funny.

The good news is that BW talked to both Sis and Zombie Sis today. both were clear & Sis was really focused on the problem at hand. ZS was clear, attempted to play games, but BW didn’t let her. The message was “bills or pills” chose the path & reap the rewards or suffer the consequences. It got through. For today, at least.

BW’s bronchitis is being treated with a shot, Z-Pack & cough medicine. Uh-uh, my throat is getting sore. I gargled with salt water & hope I don’t have to go to the dr . tomorrow.
see ya later,
(POO-f)
