Festivus Wishes

Happy Festivus!

The office gang got together to get me the "Butt Station". A most appropriate gift for Festivus.
Holding office supplies in the stool, the man has a magnet on his bottom and to remove a paperclip from the 'bowl' simply lift the man.

What a riot!

Fun with Cookies

Shark attack cookie man!
While starting our annual cookie baking marathon, we decided that not all the Cookie Men should be joyful!

Icy Midwest

Ice storms hit the midwest last night. Warmer temps this AM melt most to slush

Stud Muffin Bakery

In Pendeleton, In. Home to a wonderful food called kolaches! I recommend you visit here for this alone! These are a wonderful yummy large yeast roll, stuffed with goodies, then baked so it looks like a big roll when you get it. Mine had slices of little smokies sausages and a handful of cheddar cheese inside! MMMMM!
The story behind the name is 2 high school buddies wanted to start a bakery business when they got out of school, hence the name. Quite catchy. I would love to do an advertising campaign for them. I can imagine a dark photo studio, with direct light creating a bit of a harsh shadow. Using Super cut, buff male models and they have this tempting food on their abs or something... Yum!

Travel Food in Indiana

We wanted to stop here only because of the name. Random side trip turns into a very fine snack!

Sunset over Wal-Mart

I'm sure that this will be the only place to work in Crawfordsville soon if all of the factories continue to close down.
Talk about working for the company store!

Where can we go? what shall we do now? What future does the newspaper industry have?

Thinking about others

I've been thinking recently about a few things (or perhaps people) in my life. One thing would be the actions of others- and what they mean to me, my community and fellow man in general and even my employment.
Make your own conclusions.

I have found a few words in the dictionary that are apt descriptions of those afore mentioned actions (or perhaps people)

FRAUD: An act of deception carried out for the purpose of unfair, undeserved, and/or unlawful gain, esp. financial gain; Such an act injurious to another; One who performs such an act.

THEFT: Dishonest appropriation of property without the owner’s consent, with intent to deprive them of its use, either temporarily or permanently.

ETHICS: Rules of behaviour made and accepted by business to provide fair and moral practice.

More to come as time and inclination allows

Red sky in the Morn

Red sky in the morn,
Sailor be warn.
Red sky at night,
Sailor's delight.

Morning sun in Indiana. Forecast calls for high in the 40's and a 50% chance of rain with wind gusts 10-20 MPH. GREAT!
