Did the lottery winner get his prize eventually.

There are eagles on NASA property. Hub saw one onces. We have tons of Hawks, nearly always one in view, and ibises whom ping on bugs in the front yard. I know we have snakes because I see their shed skins while gardening. Not to mention the turtles. Or alligators. I guess the pythons aren't newsworthy any more.

That was chomping.
Not confefe! Or covfefe. Keep the covfefe meme alive!

The lottery winner got their money.

That live feed looks like Madigan at his desk. Sorry, cheap, gratuitous IL tax/budget joke....

Liz, after the holiday Thursday is like Wednesday and Thursday combined. Lots of busy.

The condor chicke is getting active now.

Suffering through disasterous vendor demonstration... Not ready for prime time... This is an hour and a half that I'll never get back

Cinco-X said...

I onces saw an eagle too

As a teen in New England I saw a Fisher Cat. There's a checkbox few can claim.

Cinco, is your real name "Dilbert?" ;)

Cinco-X said...

At every high tech job I've ever worked at my co-workers were sure that Scott Adams worked there... That's his genius

Cinco-X said...

BTW, my middle name is Wally...

UMDan said...

Got your doctors RX that says you have meeting induced narcolepsy and you are allowed to sleep in meetings yet?

Lawyerliz said...

The fisher cat looks like a cross between a cat and a bear.

Lawyerliz said...

Hahahahaha.

Reading about the interactions of Hamilton and Adams. Both had feet of Clay.

I've been out of the rat race for a few years now..what is the protocol for playing with your smartphone during meetings/presentations these days?? Is that frowned upon?? Seems like that would be a good diversion for the long boring ones..

It is considered polite to use a Bluetooth earpiece when playing Battle Cats.

A preview of CA single payer:
A recent state Senate analysis pondered a 15% payroll tax as a way to raise the estimated $200 billion needed in revenue to cover the program’s costs. The analysis assumes another $200 billion would come from existing federal, state and local funds.

The nurses’ union paid for their own study of the proposal, conducted by economics professors at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Assuming federal waivers, the analysis suggests $225 billion could come from repurposed Medicare and Medi-Cal funds.

An additional $106 billion would have to come through new revenue. The study suggests two new taxes: a 2.3% gross receipts tax on businesses and a 2.3% sales tax coupled with a tax credit for families that currently qualify for Medi-Cal.

Liz, even Hamilton would cringe at the extent Federalism has grown.

UMDan said...

Too many people think they can multi task with their phones and pay attention at a meeting. Hint - You can't. There is no such thing as "multi tasking", you are either paying attention to your phone or the meeting, not both. Invariably the person on their phone is asked a question, and then you have to repeat what you were asking about because they were "multi tasking".

I wish I had a portable cell signal blocker for meetings. Besides, it is just plain rude.

Rob Dawg said...

Dan, you describe one side of a two sided coin. Cannot tell you how many times I squirmed in a seat while people argued about PERT chart margins of error when I wanted to be on the floor breaking $100k parts with $10m machines.

Rob Dawg said...

Oh, and a new post.

Cinco-X said...

Working on it 😋

Cinco-X said...

Ya... Spent awhile on it during that disasterous demo... If be embarrassed to go into a presentation like that

Cinco-X said...

True... But when your biding your time waiting for some clown to figure out why his circuit board doesn't work it's okay... FWIW, he never got it running...
