FRIDAY FAST ONES



1.) Our domestic energy sources of power are not looking so cheap lately - especially to the families of the now 36 workers lost this month alone. We need to be willing to pay more for such a dangerously extracted commodity.


2.) In a telephone job "pre-interview" I was asked what my personal motto was - I went blank. My family just laughed at me because I had just had this saying made for my license plate holder: We are made kind by being kind.


Instead all I could think of was something I used to say to my kids "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." which is a way of saying Do the Right Thing. Which would have been a better personal motto. Geez. Hope that isn't why I didn't make it to the interview stage for that job!
Do you have a personal motto? (That is appropriate for a job interviwer?!)


3.) We keep having a few days of warm and sun and then a few more of cold and rain. It is making me a little crazy. Today is a sunny day so I am out to plant a few things that didn't get into the ground before the last round of rain. Hope it is spring where you are!

"Personal motto" would have stumped me, too. I love what you had made for your license plate!

A personal motto? I would say, "you've got to be kidding," but obviously you aren't.

Personal motto? for a job interview? God, I would kill. (oops, no that isn't my motto). I do have an inner voice that sounds just like Ellen Degeneris in Finding Nemo..."Just keep swimming, just keep swimming." Does that count? Or is it just me heading for the funny farm?
