April 2018 Packing School

Great school this spring – had some students that made the class exciting.

Also one of the tools I got to use was this wireless camera. it really did help in seeing in the bottom of the stuffing box.

The Caine Mutiny

I have seen this movie many times and it is such a classic. I think it is Humphrey Bogart’s best movie ever. The point I want o make is how it handles team dynamics. So to give you a quick synopsis, Captain Queeg was a mentally disturbed man and probably resulting from shell shock over the years. His crew during a typhoon relieved him of duty because they thought he was delusional and putting his men in harms way. The guy who took over was put up for court martial and the clip below is how his attorney was able to get the cray cray to come out of the captain.

After the case was dismissed the attorney got drunk and felt terrible about what he was forced to do. He gave a great speech about who he feels is responsible for all of this mess in the first place.

Polar Plunge 2018!

Well completed my 2nd Polar plunge and was dressed up as the Grinch that stole Xmas. We had a Dr. Suess theme.
It was much warmer then last year but still not a great time to take a dive into the water! I raised over $1000 dollars this year also.
Here are some photos of the day:

The quote about Technology and age that rings true

Well I was watching this great youtube video from Adam Conover presentation on “Millennial’s Don’t Exist” and it is my new favorite. Not only does it blow away the whole generalizations of generation thinking – it also had a quote in it that sums it up perfectly from Douglas Adams – the writer of the famous Hitchikers guide to the Universe series.

The whole “Dang Kids, get off my lawn” meme makes much more sense now! It shows that your own bias of being left out of new tech that younger people have gravitated to makes them seem out of sync with the universe.
I will always look at Tech differently after this!
