wonderful morning

We all need wonderful morning to start an awesome day. Here is some past story of that. As big as my ears are, you would think I would be able to hear everything I am listening to. I like to think I am hearing what I am listening to but I have so many illustrations that prove otherwise. I’m not sure what it is, but I am working on it with the help of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. It was on a Friday and I was very busy…

Super Heroes: Then and Now

Unless stated or identified to the contrary, I presume that buried under any plateful of mythological spaghetti lays a morsel of a really meaty meatball. Alas, our modern superheroes have been identified to the contrary – they are all meatball-less pure mythological pasta. Superman (and Supergirl too), Batman (and Robin), Tarzan, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, The Phantom, Buffy, Van Helsing, James Bond, and multi-dozens more are meatball-less. Modern superheroes, those with abilities out of the ordinary, might also include those with exceptional mental and/or observational abilities as opposed…

Just one more email, one more call, or one more thing before we collapse into numbing exhaustion at the end of the day. Wikipedia defines productivity as “an average measure of the efficiency of production.” Note that it does not say the amount of production but rather the efficiency of production. Just because we are busy doesn’t mean we are productive or efficient. One of the greatest detriments to productivity…
