Post 2574 - Wednesday

Well, that was fun!

The weather was very unpleasant this morning and only became worse. I worked from home this morning, until I learned that our offices were being closed at noon. I hope that everyone made it home safe.

Despite my best efforts, Newbie refused to learn what I was trying to teach him. He remains standoffish, situated above me on one of my bookcases. He is probably waiting for me to go into the rec room and plop myself down on my easy chair so that he can plop down on me. I feel taken advantage of.

The weather has grown worse as the day progressed. It is now at the point where I am hoping that the snowplows have done their work by the time I get up in the morning, so that we can get to work, minus taking the bus. I don't say much about the bus service in Halifax because I was told that if I couldn't come up with anything nice to say about something, then not to say anything at all.

You know, I give out my blog business card to nearly everybody I meet. I am confident that most people who get them do NOT check out this blog. I have accepted that. I have several thousand of those business cards, having taken advantage of quite a few sales offered by Vista Print. These business cards are the only form of traditional direct advertising that I can afford. It's more than what most bloggers have or do to publicize their electronic scribblings.

Back in the summer of 2011, Patricia and I had breakfast in the village of River John as part of their annual festival days. That particular morning, the local radio did their morning show from there. Ann and Gene was the team. I got on the air and won a ten dollar Tim Horton's gift card. Thanks for that.

I gave them both a business card. I shook their hand. Told them about the blog a bit. And that was about it.

This afternoon, Gene left a comment about the resulting blog post that I had written, stating that it was nice to have been mentioned. He had remembered the picture on the blog page as being the one on the business card I had given him.

Gene, wherever you are, thanks for looking me up. I hope that you are still on the radio and having fun. Keep in touch.  And, hey, check out the cool major interview that will be published here tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow...

See you tomorrow!
