|David Bradford||I am glad I don't deal with the public as part of my job. Listening to my wife and kids after a day in retail I wouldn't last 10 minutes in retail.|

Well guys were unemployed again , thank God. Just wasted 2 weeks of good weather in the process . |
Took the buy out from work and started with our contracting company two weeks later .
I tried it, but am already sick of working 13 hour days at my age. A lot of that was driving ,but your tired just the same .
I pretty much quit without notice ,but it’s not like I worked their for long .
They want me to train another guy, but I want to opt out of that to. I am really sick of this industry in general,and would rather starve to death than do this crap anymore .
I almost forgot how much I hate the public ,as this job brings out the worst of the weirdos .
We needed to park on the the easement of a woman’s property to access our Fibre,all the while shes going psycho and throwing fits and hurling rocks at the bucket truck .
We’re not even blocking here driveway ,as there was lots of room . Pretty bad when this company had to get a police escort in two different instances that day .
I have no idea what’s in the drinking water in the west Kootenays , but you can keep that valley

I think the Japanese also eat soyeans. Edamame is a little different, because it is made from immature soybeans, steamed. Very healthy stuff. Don't know where you can buy them for home consumption, but all Japanese restaurants have them. I really love eating them, such a nice flavor. A client I had back East had a home in the sticks, and on the way there, were huge fields of Soybeans. |
On another topic, my daughter came back late Sunday night from delivering her portion of our institute's beginner course in Charlotte. I realized we really need to get her swamped with business. She has a third client in the works from that course, and maybe one other in the works. We're getting together today to work on some flyers for courses through Spring of next year. Get her busy. She's part of my retirement plan, you know.
We used to be published regularly in one of two journals, which really helped our reputation. That journal stopped publishing practice development articles, but the other still does. Our documentation now consists of 10 notebooks, so we can run bits and pieces for years without repeating ourselves. Means more writing and a little less energy/time for other pursuits.
Some of you older guys, do you find that you are only good for a few hours of work at a time, then you're done, maybe even wiped out for the rest of the day? Breathing is a problem especially with the heat out here on the edge of the Mojave Desert. We're also at about 3000 feet altitude (we're in a low spot). Happily our weather starts cooling off the first day of each season. In the low 60s just now (15 C) at night. Fall is my favorite season up here. Winter gets seriously cold, even occasional snow. We're just 40 minutes from several major ski resorts and we get some nasty cold winds then too.
