Learning Stuff

I am learning Microsoft Excel because I need to excel in something. I could not resist that pun. I have a new Job and I have to learn Microsoft Excel. I am getting a lot of help from people in work and by just typing in Microsoft Excel Tutorials in Google I get tons of help. Learning is getting easier and easier. I can still order a CD and learn that way too! Have you learned something new thru Google?

New Job

I just started a new job and I am a bit anxious about doing it. I want to do well and did good the first couple of days. I am not use to working, because I have been on disability and I am just venturing back to the work force. It does feel good to be productive again. I just hope I can keep up with the demands of this new life. The best part is I get to go to Dunkin Donuts more because I am working and now I get Dunkin before and after work. Have you started a new job or adventure lately?

Choir of Angels

I was in church and coming back from communion. The organist was playing up some great angelic song and a good Christian lick on the organ. Unfortunately I bumped into the microphone and it hit her face. I felt terrible and tried to catch the microphone and hit her again. Finally I just backed away and slinked into my pew. After mass I apologized to her and she said to me, "I am a 4Th grade music teacher and I am use to the kids doing things like that." I guess being compared to a 4Th grader was better than being compared to a 1St grader so I apologized again for good measure and trotted out of church. Have you ever had an embarrassing moment in church?

Wrong Way.

People really get irritated with me when I go the wrong way on a one way street. I have driven this one road for years and they changed the street to one way. I naturally approached it and went on it the right way down the wrong way after they changed the way it used to be. I was use to going the other way. Well! People yelled at me, beeped their horns, showed me hand signals and everything. I only went like a quarter of a block then lucky for me there was a parking lot I turned in. It exited the right way down this other new one way street that I went down the right way. People were happier with me when I did that. Did you ever go down the street the wrong way?

In tell i gent.

Sometimes I think I am smart and doing the right thing, or try to look cool and end up looking more like a colon. Like riding a motorcycle and feeling all motorcycle cool and then tip the bike over in front of a couple of hundred people. The smarter I try to be the dumber I end up. So when somebody tells me to just be myself that is a pretty scary bit of advice. Oh well! That is the way life happens sometimes. Do you know what I am talking about? God bless you if you do.

Things Break

My CD Changer on my car broke. I have been having trouble with it. It stuck 3 times before and this time it was a permanent stuck. The door seems to have broken on it. It is just an annoyance more than anything else. I did not like the changer to begin with. Now I have an excuse to get a new and better one. That is not really what I want to do. I also have some damage where my running boards are. I think I'd rather fix that first. Music I have. The radio and cassette player still works so musically I am fine. Maybe this was a wake up call to get my priorities straight on what to fix on my car and what really is important. Priorities need prioritizing sometimes. What are your priorities lately?

How come the more you use your phone the more twisty the phone cord gets? I just had to untwist my phone cord because of it being overly twisty. Things like this do not usually bother me but for some reason the more twisty the phone cord got the more twisted my head got looking at it. Do certain things like twisty phone cords or some other twisty things bother you?

I just realized I posted about going out with friends to dinner twice. Once to a restaurant the other at their home. I have just been getting out a lot lately. That is not all I do with my friends. Like tomorrow we are going for lunch. OK. I am going over their house and visit with their pets. Sometimes I go to a friends house and visit their grandkids. Then there are the times I just go over to watch TV with them or just have a coffee and visit. Then there are the times I get to help them do things around their house like fix a car or something. What do you do when you get together with friends? I may have asked that before. I guess I am blessed with good friends and hope you are too!


I just came back from my friends house. They made dinner for me. I had steak and this wonderful concoction of garlic, carrots, peppers and other veggies. Man it was the best dinner I had since, well the last time I visited them. Have you been to a friends house for dinner? I hope you have.
