We’re blessed with these wonderful ears and jaw and lips that flap endlessly but man’s communication is still the poorly practiced in so many areas of life, both professional and personal that it’s a crying shame.

We have all these wonderful tools to help us communicate and we still can’t get it done. Don’t get me wrong. I’ve got a great number of communication failures in my history, but when I compare myself to my professional and personal groups, I do fairly well.

What set this tirade off is the fact that something important wasn’t communicated again at work. I must still care because it pisses me off when it happens still. Such is life. Well, I’m going to go cool off with a fine beverage and hope for the best tomorrow.

I’m sitting here trying to figure out how to communicate and get answers from my power company BG&E. I’ve tried over the phone today and got nowhere. So I just wrote them and lets see where that gets me. What spurred this on was losing power for the 3rd time in 5 days without a weather related event any of those times. I’m hoping to get a reply because when I’m disrespected it tends to push the A-hole buttons I try to keep hidden.

I don’t know why they wouldn’t communicate with a customer on a rash of outages with the exception of telling me when the latest one is expected to be restored.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Sorry about the cranky Post. Still not feeling my best.

It saddens me that the University of Maryland is going through another issue with sports. It saddens me much more that it took a young mans life to maybe bring things into the light. I sincerely hope some of the things I’ve been hearing aren’t true, but like our current leaders, where there is smoke, there is fire.

I started out to work today with the top up and in a rain storm. Half way in it was sunny and dry so I put the top down. So all I need now is some sun in the morning and I’ll be a happy camper.

I saw some of those dreaded school buses out doing test runs I guess. Pretty soon traffic is going to explode.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
