Dale Earnhardt Jr. 4th turn of the first lap of the next race. hmm.. what are the chances?Back to work... really not all it's cracked up to be. I much prefer staying home... but then again, staying home just doesn't pay the bills. Although... it might be nice to work from home, perhaps a home business? Hmm... heck of an idea. Oh yeah.. that takes money doesn't it? I figure I really only need about 150k to be my own boss.
Also in the news about work... 8 months ago we went from MediVation to iMcKesson. Ok.. that's was a good thing, a 164 year old 'start up' company... Well... guess what... turned out to be a dot bomb. Conglomo decided to make conglomo even bigger by rolling the i back into McKesson/HBOC. So yay... new org charts... again, another e-mail address, new business cards, more changing of the logo's woo hoo... we even need to rip the i off the logo on the

Ok.. the question here is why did half the text get cut off? I did some upgrades... exported the data, and then imported it again.. it's all there... why ain't it showing? Ok.. so that question doesn't require an answer.Dale Earnhardt.... last corner of the last lap of the Daytona 500.. geesh
It's been more than a week since my last post.. what's up with that? OK.. so I am / was on vacation (vacation from work... ) this week, and I've actually been pretty good about staying away from the computer. I haven't checked my e-mail at work at all.. nor my voice mail... I only called work once.. and it was upon request and totally un-related to work. I could get used to this... oh wait... I've had the opportunity to live my wife's life for the past few days... God Bless her.. I have NO idea how she does it. Hands down hardest job in the world, and dammit she is really good at it.Rules of thumb for DIY Home Improvement (that's Do It Yourself):
You're going to need more of whatever it is that you are buying than you think you do. In my case about 8 more tiles that what I bought the first time.
It's going to take twice as long as you think it is.
The chances are pretty good that the more complex the project, the more un-planned trips to Home Depot or ACE are required.
If you have small children, and you are doing anything close to the floor, the are going to climb on you.
Those same small chilren will want to 'help' too.
When installing tile, take a lesson from Monica's notebook, buy knee pads...
For the record, my new bathroom vinyl tile looks pretty darn good.. and only required a trip to HD for some additional tiles, related to a Math error, and a couple of screw-ups... not bad. It did take twice as long, but really only because I didn't have enough tiles, so I stretched it over multiple days. NO extra trips to ACE, the kids did help, and they did climb on me, and I did buy knee pads.. best 10 bucks I've spent in some time. Extra added bonus.. No blood loss!

So, did you figure it out? Or is it just a bunch of random characters on the screen formed in such a way to make the viewer contort his or her face, and get frustrated that they can't see anything? You decide.Next time a kid tells you that he or sh

Can anyone, EVER, see images in these things?

Bbs says Uh No on 2/13/2001
I though It was just me I tried all sortsa ways to see and and Nuttin. Maybe the management is just trying to see the faces we make when we try. We'll all end up like the CCA!!!

This is to BBS...what makes you think that being the happiest man in the world doesn't include the kids and the minivan...Let's just wait and see...
P.S. Yes the red leather mini-skirt and heels on V-day that year was me (before the kids and the minivan)

OMG IT'S SNOWING! What are we going to do? Nice 90 minute drive home... which was short in comparision to some others. My biggest complaint about the drive home, is the morons in their SUV's. Bunch of A-Holes. First.. just because you have an SUV, it does

He bugs gore??? Where is the Dubaya?

MGMT says Disclaimer on 2/4/2001
Ok... so perhaps we should have left out the Dubya...
Do I need a disclaimer that we only check some facts, and that spelling doesn't count?
