It's Hot In Texas

Thanks Amy for the pic!

Third Finger On My Left Hand

After 14 years of marriage about 2 months ago my wedding ring began digging into my finger. About a month ago I actually stopped wearing it and it took about 3 weeks for it to look actually healed. Yesterday I decided since I was going to be on Plano this week (meeting mostly people I didn't know) I should put the ring back on signaling that I was indeed married.

I'm not happy, less than 24 hours later my finger is inflamed again.

Playground Instructions

Adult Supervision is higly recommended
Dogs are prohibited
As for glass beverages, they are discouraged.

I wonder if there is someone assigned as the "official discourager" or if its handled via peer pressure

I Didnt Dress Her

This may become a series. In this photo we have summer tshirt, diaper (I know, I know, if only an SLA was assigned to potty training it would be complete. It's now intermittent however we are approaching Sev 1 status and I have just opened the problem ticket), and two different high heels.

You can read the whole article here, but a word of warning you are only going to become more disgusted.

Things I Learned Today

(As a reminder, I work for Dell)

95% of fortune 500 companies choose Dell
All of the G20 governments choose Dell
3 of 5 hospitals in the US choose Dell

and some things I already knew:

Newsweek rated Dell as the #1 Green company in the United States
120,000 Dell devices are shipped per day

Go Dell!

Good Morning, Doug!

It's The Thought That Counts

Tonight Jane and I are both flying out of Burbank airport, our flights are 40 minutes apart, I am at Gate A1 she will be at Gate A2. While waiting for my flight I saw this cute little book in the gift shop (no clue why I wandered in there) and thought I could circle the bff on the cover, have SWA page her overhead while she was waiting at the gate and have them present her with her surprise gift. fun, huh?

Then I remembered.....she probably would not be at the gate long enough to receive the gift or because she was late it would cause more confussion than anything. Oh well, its the thought that counts.
