    We just hit our first 90+ degree day;  actually - we set a record - 98-degrees.  (This follows a LONG winter - that seemed to only end a few days ago.)  Everything slows down during the summer - offices seem to be vacant on Friday afternoons.  It seems like 1 of every 3...

  • Follow-Up to Last Three Entries!

    I am resisting the strong desire to Blog more often than twice/month.  I now have a Twitter account (follow me: @David_Magy), but this venue seems more appropriate for some things (anything longer than 140 characters). Three Follow-Up Items: Post and Pray...

  • E-Mail Fatigue

    It’s a typical Sunday evening – catching up on e-mails I missed since Friday when I left the office (I try to not access e-mails on Saturdays).  Technology sure has made our life easier (or at least different) – we no longer have to be in the office to catch up on...
