Cinco de Mayo

May 7, 2008

Yesterday I started work at an international explosives company. I learned that I am not allowed to use their name in writing, so don’t think I am trying to be mysterious by not mentioning specifics! It really is quite an impressive organization, so I’ve been puzzled as to why they hired me. That became apparent early on yesterday. The company has a huge emphasis on safety. I also have a huge emphasis on safety. How many times have I personally admonished you to be safe? Most of you sneer and discard my counsel, but I remain undeterred. At work, we spend most of the first day learning about safety strategies, reviewing an extremely comprehensive drug and alcohol policy (I left not entirely sure I am in compliance, that’s how comprehensive), thinking about safety, identifying possible safety hazards (in an office environment, mind you), and just being safe. I didn’t see any helmets worn, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

My job there is to do the taxes.

My fantasy team is still going strong (2nd place currently). I HIGHLY recommend the song “Eyes” by Rogue Wave. The boy is leaving soon for the mission, and Knab dog turns twenty something today.
