    Skeptical... certainly possible, but in the history of human interaction is as likely to make things worse.
    Hah. Yeah, this may be true. I mean, weíre all team CD but sounds like thereís a lot of animosity there.

    I hope you enjoy drinking from your half empty cup! Kidding. Some of this is on me actually. If I don't handle this promotion in the manner it should be handled, then I will give them an opening to complain. I think their deepest, darkest fears are that I will be a self-promoter and they will be marginalized. To defend these guys, my predecessor could be a little bit like that. And he is the reason I came to work for this company. Just a beloved and legendary figure and for good reason. Best speaker I have ever had the pleasure to witness. But he was so incandescent that those guys felt marginalized. They lived in his shadow and felt he got all the accolades.

    The first lesson of management consulting, never commit.

    Yeah, I could have been more detailed. If the audience perceives the big boss's endorsement as a diminution of their own standing, then it's not likely to be helpful in building/mending bridges. But if she/he were artful, other paths appear.

    So the boss is really well-liked and very much trusted by those guys. And I knew what you meant. I just thought it would be fun to bust your chops. And you know what? It really was.

    I find lamb to be a touch gamey unless it's in a pretty strong sauce. Lamb curries are superb, but I had lamb skewers the other day and I didn't love them.

    Deck repairs completed, and I have a huge deck (even without trimming the bushes around it). Now itís time to stain, so of course the rain season starts this afternoon.

    Elliot in the Morning (DC shock jock) used to do this segment about celebrity hook-ups and now my wife and I canít listen to Kenny Chesney without laughing.

    And not because of his music!

    Withdrawal from Duke sports can be difficult.

    Got blade replaced on push mower along with basic service. Got about 2/3rds through mowing, the bolt holding the blade on broke in half.

    Now my lawn has a reverse mowhawk and I have to take it back on Monday.

    Escape (The Pina Colada Song) is not a happy song. Like, theyíre actively trying to cheat on one another by putting out want ads.
