1 day only?

My bit of stuff for Mandela Day?

Thinking. Thinking what will it take to turn everyday into a “Mandela Day”

Just listening to the country jump through hoops to get recognized for doing their

Mandela bit and feeling sad. Hundreds of stories of people cant wait to broadcast in whatever manner possible a tale of how

wonderful they are by doing their “bit” be it on the radio , tv , or interwebs.

Name after name all bragging or pushing thier business and saying i did this!

Where were they Yesterday? and the day before that ? and the day before that?

Imagine how it would be if these same people just on their own, decided to perform some random act of kindness?

Without having their name splashed all over the media?

Now wouldn’t that be wonderful?  Everyday is Mandela day? Everyday when someone seems something needing fixing , they fix it?

Just imagine NEXT year when the next Mandela Day rolls around and 5 gazillion people stand in the street saying “but there is nothing to fix”?


Taking the lead of a great man and working with it everyday  fixing the country , step by step day by day WITHOUT CRAVING RECOGNITION  until one day ,we can take his hand on a hilltop and say “Look Madiba . We did this for you”

Now that would be an awesome Mandela Day


SEATTLE here i come

This is sooooo INCREDIBLY AWESOME!!!!!!!! i HAVE to get into this team…..
soooo tired of doing business programming IT’s going to change with the
accelerator program


7 minutes of terror

how can u not stand and cheer at the end of this? its INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why is it funny?

I don’t get it.

Why is it kewl to laff at Barney the Disnosaur an his “i love you” song?

It seems to me it took one mentally retarded dumb-ass of an excuse of a “man” who was/is uncapable of love to laugh at the show of a beautiful human feeling and the rest of the world cant wait to jump on the bandwagon like sheep and point and laff…………..”its baaaaaaaaaaaaad” ooh lets laff at the word love …..hahahahahaha

Well then he wasnt really human or a man or anything was he?

Because im pretty sure that babies are born with the ability to love built right into them

So something happened to this…….thing…..cant be human if it cant love

Again on the radio today a huge campaign laffing at the Barney song and awarding fathers a medal for suffering through hours of this song?  I’M SORRY BUT I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF BEING WITH MY DAUGHTER SINGING  AND DANCING  WITH THE PURPLE DINOSAUR AND I WOULD GLADLY WATCH HER DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN!

I really don’t see what is funny in the words “i love you, you love me were a great big family”

It seems to be the acceptable norm to laff and scoff at the terrible Barney song

What sort of message is this sending to the children of the world?

On one side they see this fun purple dinosaur telling them its nice to love everyone but here is

my DADDY telling me its unkewl?  Which do you think is going to stick in the childs brain?

I say NO . Its time to stop . Its UNKEWL to laff at Barney Its time for the world to join hands and sing


“I love you, you love me were a great big GLOBAL family, With a great big hug and kiss from me to you

wont you say you love me toooo”?

I know what is wrong with the world

World wide shortage of painters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If we had more “happy face” tank painters, everything would be fine

Immediate cease in all hostilities everywhere.

If tanks had great big smiley faces on them, No one would shoot

So Do your patriotic duty and paint a smiley face on a tank today


Maybe its just me . Maybe i ahve  zero respect for Coff “authority”…coff coff

But why does this first video remind me sooo much of the second one?


Dunno, maybe im wierd?

The Receptionist


A paradigm shift in how to treat the problem of company perception

((wow i eventually used one of them buzz words i hate so much))

I was either:

– cutting the grass


– renewing the endless struggle against the oppressive green growing invading plant matter

this evening    (( I prefer the second description,  but i’m just weird))  🙂

When it struck me. Well no nuthing struck me but i did get an idea. How about this?

You know how every company hires a receptionist to answer their phone? You know how every company complains about how they wish they could improve their company image?

Well how bout this?

STOP hiring some poor person out of school who doesnt really want to answer your dam phone, cares less about your company and only wants to leave as soon as possible!

LETS implement this policy.

EVERYONE and I mean everyone has to get a chance being the receptionist. You dont get a perfomance appraisal if you never did your “stint” answering the phone.  When it’s your turn your will put your “real” job on hold even if you are the CIO and for that week  BE the recptionist. You will answer the phone in a polite and curteous manner, within 3 rings TAKE owership of each and every problem you become aware of and work at them untill they are resolved

You will put your other job on hold for the week , reschedule your meetings etc etc

Nooo dont make your eyes GLAZE over. Think bout it!

Savings in salary…..hehe

Your staff will know more about what it is exactly your company does. John from Marketing will speak to Bill from Sanitation BECAUSE HE HAS TO deliver his messages etc etc

I’m not going to elaborate . You’re all big business people, think of the opportunities!!!!

This keeps me motivated

Yes is a video and yes its a concept and yes its not solving huge world crisis-es

BUT I find it uplifting , It motivates me to be better and makes me once again so

grateful for being in IT

For keeping the eyes moist

The progress is slow but promising

As can be seen the graph is wobbly BUT

Ive stopped going there as much as used to

That is indicated by the high page count early in the month when there was obsessive checking to see that all worked correctly

Lately i havent been checking every two seconds so the count is lower Howerer there is still a daily page count which means that

Someone is listening. Woohoo.  I’m not fooling myself I still have a long long way to go before its anything likeit should be

But for now at least i can still

Keep the faith


Short, to the point and perfect
