    I expect YouTube to be my friend. Need to get the floor down, so I can put all our "stuff" in there.

    I just bought shares today in a company that makes routers.

    We are having the floors done this summer...while we are on vacation. The tool I am most skilled at operating is a checkbook.

    Any job worth doing is worth paying someone else to do it.

    I live by that and "Never put off until tomorrow that which you can put off until the day after tomorrow".

    Time to make the donuts, ummm, I mean Pop Tarts.

    Still interviewing for my replacement. My coworkers all agree on the same person...and I have my reservations. Which means we will definitely hire him. I made them mad when I suggested that they all have the tendency to like people who are like them but that we need some fresh ideas and we need to make an outside the box hire because we tend towards ideological purity. This was NOT well received.

    Do they still have Little Vermont over near or on 9th St? There used to be a Ben and Jerry's and a Brueggers, maybe even a Green Mtn Coffee spot?

    Nope, they closed it and put in a Supercuts, or something. The landlord would not renew B&J's lease. Still don't understand that one. Loved free cone day!

    Bruegger's is still there, but not what it used to be. Just not as good, IMO. The coffee place changes hands, and the old Francesca's spot is going to be a Starbucks.

    This is such an important lesson in life. Understanding what you can/should do and when you should pay for someone to do something.

    I wish there were more things I liked and had the inclination to do but handiness isnít my jam. I do like to cook and do garden work but house systems, fuggetaboutit.

    Iíve also discovered I enjoy dad stuff and go splitsy on all the baby duties, which my wife appreciates to no end. She comes from an old school Scottish family and dad has never changed a diaper, done laundry, cooked a meal, etc in his life.

    Friday, Friday
    Gettin' down on Friday
    Everybody's lookin' forward to the weekend

    We so excited
    We gonna have a ball today

    I have known several older men who lost their wives or their wives were no longer able to do for them as they had, and they were totally clueless. Did not know how to heat a can of soup, use the microwave, make a sandwich. Sad.
