The Ups vs the Downs
I'm weary of listening to "ideal leadership traits" and "what makes great teams" and all the rest of this nonsense, as though there are answers in the back of someone's book. Let me simplify: If you're not growing, your declining. There
High Resolution Boredom
We bought a honking big, new TV for the master bedroom, but its capabilities were beyond the Apple III TV I have hooked up. So I went online, ordered Apple TV IV and received it a day later (of course).
The Never Giving
I've determined that the Ever Given, the ship stuck in the Suez for all that time, must have actually been Noah's Ark. Every shortage I encounter is blamed on that vessel. There aren't enough chips for auto manufacturers, we're short on
