It's really hard, because they indoctrinate you with the idea that "LEAN" will solve all your problems. Sigma 666 (done that 666 part on purpose, ha ha Very Happy ) will solve anything in the world.

And anyone who does not accept 100% of lean is evil and stupid and will not succeed.

Understand it. They preach that the companies who fail at lean.... FAIL because they took certain parts of it and left the rest.

The horrible part of it is that a giant percentage of it works, and people think it's butter on sliced bread. The other 20% of it is total bull**** and it is enough of a percentage that it totally screws your company, unless it is super rich enough to put up with it.

So....some good ideas mixed with poison. Hard to decide what is good in it and what is bad.

Maybe at first. The first salvos of a war against the message board.

Now cell phones rule and Facebook and twitter will be killed off over the years.

Twitter is a fad. Facebook has the world wrapped up in it's grippy fingers.

Cell's will kill all that with it's apps and games.

Selah....

My excuse is that I haven't had internet for three and a half years, so I only get on the computer when I'm at the library, like right now.




I'm so out of the loop.

Whidden brings up forgotten Library memories from the past:

1. Forced to learn something called the dewy decimal system. Spelling on that is wrong. Never did learn it, it was numbers and fractions and screwy stuff. I went in alphabetical order for books, which I could deal with.

2. Teachers at school in the library were mean. The local government library people were very nice and wanted you there. Totally the opposite of any government agency I have ever dealt with before or after that for sure...

3. I rode my bike (I'm 14 to 18, around that age) in North Fort Myers up to the library and did not like to check any books out. I would sit in the nice air conditioned room and read them there. I liked the classic science fiction books.

It was good times.


End of Whidden nostalgia.

So, the thought of internet at the library is a bit alien to my memories of what it was.

That's a good deal, that you can get the net at the library.

----Sorry Pippin, I'm drunk. Sorry you don't have the internet at home. Sad

The local fair is going to be next weekend. I'm stoked. There's something different every year. Two years ago the big event was a greased pig chase. Last year it was a lawn mower race. This year there's sheep herding, a kid's chicken chase and a pie tasting competition. I'm guessing that's to see how many different pies a person can eat from in an amount of time.

Your local fairs sound more fun than our local fairs.

We don't have local fairs.

I never want to be one of those people who just talks about their kids all the time. Nobody cares beyond a cursory "they're well" and stuff like that. As a result, I have absolutely nothing to talk about with people anymore. I'm with my kids so much that I can't think of a single bloody thing to say when I chat with people, except to say that I can't think of anything to talk about except my damn kids.

I live in the library for most of the year. SDSU's library has a bunch of graffiti on the tables on the 3rd floor about guys getting blown by other guys in the desk sections. Makes you grab for the hand sanitizer. Damn, grad school sucks. No I have roughly 15 or so days until I have to start back for my second year. The other grad students are mostly immature asshats (some of them well into their 40s at that) and I'm generally not liked.

Whidden, you are alive! I miss your humor. Pippin, what have you been doing? Grant, your girls are beautiful.

You should be in bed shouldn't you? It's like twenty-five o'clock at night there (sorry, we use metric here in Taiwan so I don't know if that's right).

You are. We already established that in California. Buffy is chopped liver. We even got your name legally changed.

I don't need to work for the next 6 months. I thought I'd feel free, but I'm pretty depressed. For one thing, they had to hire two people to do my job and neither of them are great. I'm a little worried about the mess I'm going to return to. Also, I'm just a little stressed about having the kids with me so much. I need a break.

well, Pippin, I'm a fan boy, so when the trailer came out, I was a little horrified by it. I dig eldras elba, unsure of his name. He was cool as the gate keeper in Thor. And Matthew M. is cool, liked him in Interstellar.

HOWEVER!!!! It just felt all wrong, that trailer. stupid CGI on the gunslingers bullet loading was the worst part.

so I didn't go see it. then it got horrible reviews and tanked as a stinker.

I am going to watch it when it shows up on netflix, but from what I have heard it's a bad stinker movie. which is a shame, cause Dark Tower deserved better dammit!!!!!

Oh no! What a shame. I was hoping it would be good, since I'd heard such good things from you about the books. If the movie was cool then I could watch it and pretend I read the books.

Pretty much the only thing I've been reading lately is the Bible. I've never read it, but I like history and I like Jeopardy, and it's just a historically important book and such a common source of Jeopardy clues that I figured it's high time I read it. I'm almost through Exodus. It's gonna be a looong read.

I have read the whole book with the exception of psalms. People love that book, but I find it boring.
