I hate feeling left out of conversations about some of today’s high tech stuff that I just don’t know much about. I ran into a couple of friends today and we decided to grab some coffees at our local Starbucks, one of my favorite places to get a nice hot full flavored mocha, topped off with a big blob of whipped cream. Well, it seems that my friends are very high tech and their conversations were full of m&a deals, Hedge Funds, Life Sciences, legal translations and a bunch of other stuff about corporate high finance. I felt so bad sitting there sipping on my mocha and spending most of my time looking out the window and at the floor, like a big fat out of touch dummy.
I do remember them mentioning a merrill virtual data room and I jotted it down so that when I got home I could look it up online and see what in the heck the big to do is about. So after taking the time to look it up I’m still pretty much in the dark, I’m sad to say. I mean I’m no dummy, but somethings just are out of league and I’ve got to own up to that I guess. I’m glad that I ran into these folks but I can tell that we have pretty much grown apart and I most likely won’t be doing much socializing with them in the near future.
The scott kay engagement rings that my friend and coworker Shannon and I have been looking are simply drop dead gorgeous. I wish that the Internet was available back in the day of my engagement and wedding planning. These tasks are never easy but the Internet can certainly make these chores more fun as well as giving you more options. Shannon has it made in comparison, but it is still nerve racking at times.
I really don’t know how we managed to do anything without the use of our computers, at home as well as at work. I know that it wasn’t all that long ago when we used to communicate, shop and pay bills the good old fashioned way. But that was back in the eighties, when you do the math it has only been a few decades ago that are lives changed forever because of computers.

The memo that we all received today at work, concerning this year’s “office party” broke it all down for everyone to read and learn from. We have all been
asked instructed with at least one task in order to share the load and to try and keep the cost as low as possible.
This year we will all be meeting at the local VFW on the Thursday night before Christmas, December 19th, at 6:00. I was asked to buy printed tablecloths with the company logo. Of course the company will reimburse me. They are always prompt at reimbursing any of us.
With this in mind I guess I need to get started. It shouldn’t be too difficult to find and order. The sooner they get here, the sooner I get reimbursed. I don’t need to
If anyone deserves a break in their lives it is certainly our military personnel who have gone above and beyond and put their lives on the line for us all back home in the land of the free and the home of the brave, right? Most of us know or are related to someone who has or is serving our country, so we know how hard it is for them in so many ways, so any assistance that they are entitled to is a good thing. The Post 911 GI Bill is designed to help them in many ways, one of them being their education.
My brother-in-law is planning on taking advantage of this Post 911 GI Bill and is looking into taking some classes online with the well known Ashworth College that has a huge selection of online courses at very affordable prices. So along with their low prices combined with the benefits offered with the Post 911 GI Bill he should be go to go in a few years with a degree that will help him get a better job when his time is up in the military.
He is looking forward to taking classes online, which will be better than having to attend regular classes that would interfere with his very busy schedule on and off the base. I’m so proud of him and wish him all the luck in world in this challenge that will forever change his and my sister’s lives forever. I can’t wait for graduation, I’ll be the first one to be there to show my support and love for this man who my sister has placed so much trust in the last couple of years.
The pedal power 4×4 at musicians friend that I ordered last week came in today. I hope that my nephew will be impressed with this Voodoo Lab Pedal Power that he will find under the Christmas tree come Christmas morning. I wish that I could be there to see the look on his face. My sister has promised to take plenty of pictures to post on Facebook, so that will just have to do.
It’s a shame that my family just keeps on spreading out farther and farther with each passing year. I can’t image getting the whole family together for Christmas or Thanksgiving any time soon. I don’t think it would happen for a wedding either. And let us hope that we don’t have any funerals to find out how many would be able to attend.
