Dancing Thru

A Great Quote on Life

Cribbed from someone's sig file on the Mead Lovers list...

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving all
pretty and preserved, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used
up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming---"WOW! What a ride!" --

Yeah, here's to that philosophy. As I am wont to say "Flat out, to the wire!"

Now Wells Fargo IS the Highway Robber...

I only use my Wells Fargo account for things like a wine clubs, which I pay off every time its charged. Well, it looks like I didn't read the latest fine print account changes enough. I get the latest statement, and the $45 charge has a $2 (!!!) "minimum interest payment." Time to stop using that card...

My friend at Sun was right... And the truth about jobs...

He said a layoff was rumored for this week. I just heard 3300 jobs.

Those new job figures from the administration might not be so rosy. It seems that the growth was mostly in the service sector. (Yep, we can retrain those engineers and programmers.) Growth in areas like Indian gaming and tourism are also big. Job growth, yeah, lies, damned lies, and statistics, if you ask me.

I also read a report that said Silicon Valley was the third-toughest place to find work in the nation.
