So tired Tonight....

I got the privilege of leading a team of specialists in the "decommissioning" of one of our offices today. Good work guys! You know who you are. What a professional team. I have mixed feelings about it because it was one of the first field offices I got to help do a major network technology upgrade at as a "newbie." Now many years later we are pulling it down. The staff are all getting relocated to other offices so I guess it seems ok for them now.

There is a small Jewish family cemetery next door to that office I looked out over during my many service visits to the location. It always looked so nice and peaceful. I never stopped long enough to go over and see how old it was, but seeing how it is squeezed in between some major-big office buildings on some prime real-estate I always guessed it had been there for a very long time. Going into cemeteries where I don't have a family connection always made me feel like a trespasser for some reason. I don't know why. I had a buddy once who liked to go to one of the nicer very large ones around the area during his lunch hour and eat lunch. Said it relaxed him....Hmmm. Don't know about that, but I must confess I can relate to the sense of tranquility and peace.

Speaking of tranquility and peace, check out this Japanese garden. I'm feeling better already!

I'm thinking about going to work for these guys! They do stuff. I figure I can do stuff at least as good as the other guy, so maybe I have a chance here. Seriously, this is a spoof website. It looks very professional, just read all the fine print..."Our main consulting strategy is to convince clients that we do stuff they can't do themselves, and that we deserve lots of money for it. The best way to do this is to always look good, and always sound like we know something you don't. Because we do."

See you in the skies.
