Today Was A Good Day For Seeking A Job
Mood:  caffeinated
My wife, Irene, had one interview today and five telephone calls from prospective employers. All in all, it was the best day yet as a job seeker.

Summarizing her credentials is very easy:
She has over ten years of HR and payroll/benefits experience. This includes ten years with a plastic manufacturing company and two years with a major retail outlet. Obviously, she possesses strong leadership and communication/learning abilities to handle the challenges of different positions.

I get the feeling she won't be unemployed very long, so if you want to hire her, the time to do it is now.

Bobby Vinton's Concert At Casio Rama
Mood:  a-ok
At an age when most people are drawing "Social Security", Bobby Vinton(age 70)is still going strong with his family(two daughters/son)and his big band.

It's hard to believe that Bobby played in his father's band during the early 50s, but when he starts blowing on the saxophone or clarinet, you become a believer. His tribute to the big bands of the 40s was my personal highlight of the evening.

He did most of the musical styles and his own hits from the 20th century.

As well as the music, Bobby liked telling dumb jokes(like the inventor of the mini-skirt)"Seymour Heinee". His voice needed some electrification to meet the demands of a large audience but with all the adoring female fans in attendence. Who cares?
Three and a half stars:

It's Hot. It's Humid And It's Stinks
I'm talking about the weather and the garbage strike in Brampton, Ontario. Something should be done about these problems.

Call on the great weatherman in the sky or Brampton City Hall to get the show on or off the road.

What do you think of garbage pickup from Rocky Racoon and friends? Cheap but not efficient, eh?

B.S. Doesn't Baffle Brains When The Router Won't Work
A couple of days ago, I thought I set up a wireless network with my wife's new laptop with keen precision. When I got the router humming, the internet worked well and the notebook even printed from the next room.

Humility soon set in when all of my dynamic connections started coming apart. The internet disappeared and the bloody #$%&* machine couldn't find my printer or any common network at all.

Then I realized it wasn't as easy as it looked, so I sent for a computer technican(Adrian)who helped me before. Within an hour and a half, he had all networks and connections running smoothly including my wife's e-mail that I had screwed up majorly.

Adrian worked quickly and only charged $70.00 Canadian.

Finding a tech geek who isn't full of B.S. and confusion is a real treat. This is his webpage. Check it out.

It's My Birthday And It's Good To Alive
Mood:  celebratory
My wife is still looking for a job. I'm still trying to sell a story. I'm still working at Canada Post, but, gee, it could be worse. I complained about having no socks until I met a man with no feet.

We should always count our blessings every day. I'm still in good health and I still like a good laugh. Also, there's some overtime in my workplace where I can pull in some gravy for my mashed potatoes.

The road to fulfilment is longer for some than others. If you're following a lowly pilgrim's journey through life, this might be good place to start. Sometimes one's progress is measured in inches rather than miles.

Visiting Haunted Houses In Ontario
We visited two during the day. One was in Churchville, Ontario where Indians massacred the citizens in a local saloon. The other was in Bolton Ontario where a young girl and a middle aged man died under mysterious circumstances. We didn't go in there either. Lots of paranormal activity reported. Noises, creepy hands on the body, lights and TVs turning off and on, etc., etc.

The owner left and rented the house out to a bunch of potheads. Nice spooky places to visit but you wouldn't want to live there.

Working Stiffs Need A Break Sometime
Over the last two weeks, I've worked 32 hours overtime. I'm looking forward to two weeks off where I can relax a little and sleep in.

Deep Throat Revealed. Who Is Next?
After three decades, the mystery man/whistleblower/rat behind "The Watergate Coverups" is revealed.

Thirty years is a long time to keep a secret. Nice job Woodward and Bernstein.

The second biggest mysterious being on the planet has to be "Deep Monk" from Hotel California. Where is he hiding and who is he anyway? The clues are there, but can you put them together?

Play Review: The Tempest
If you ever visit Canada, make sure you see a Shakespearean play in Stratford Ontario. Over the years, I've seen Richard the Third, Henry The Fourth-Part One, Macbeth, Hamlet and finally the Tempest starring the great stage actor, William Hutt, as Prospero.

The play is full of magic and spiritual highjinks.

Mr. Hutt gave a multi-dimensional performance, at times cruel and violent, but also forgiving, loving and very poetic.

The play, however, lacks a major adversary to Mr. Hutt's mighty magician and therefore suffers because of it. Three stars.

Living On The Edge
Mood:  hungry
When my wife was laid off three weeks ago, it was a setback for both of us. Our routines changed. Our comfort level decreased.

However, our belief in each other never changed. While sending out tons of resumes in all directions, we are also looking into a home-based business where my wife can use all of her skills.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Sometimes, you have to depend on your own street smarts and experience to get by.

Victories in life often go to the hungriest teams.
