Your VBA Administrator – that’s me – has been absent for a long while. Essentially, I’ve been writing novels and not paying much attention to WordPress as a result. Also, the editing face of WordPress has changed and I am still making my way around. Figuring out how to find and approve comments took about six minutes!
So, I apologize.
I will try to do better.
Thanks for visiting.
Also, I want to apologize to those who have received “poor” star ratings on your wonderful blog posts — I have a “troll” who has followed you here from another of my blogs. Don’t let it bother you too much — he/she has a heart of stone.
Writing letters that are fun to receive
Who writes letters any longer? I haven’t received a letter in the mail in forever. Of course, I’ve not sent one either — in forever!
Receiving a letter should be fun. Last time we talked about my mother’s and grandmother’s conversions from hide-bound traditionalism to more creative thinking in the letter-writing department. This time I’d love to share the little tips we collected over the years about making a letter special.
We’ll drop everything to read a letter from loved ones.

- Write on pretty stationery. (Bet you knew I was going to mention that one!) Whether you love vintage papers you find on eBay or at the antique store, get something that expresses your personality. You may be the little kitten type or the abstract type or the gold-border type. No matter what your personality, let it shine on paper as well as in daily life.
- Coordinate the ink color. Now this may sound silly, but some colors just don’t go together. Can you imagine brown ink on lavender paper? Blue would be a…

Power Plant Men Take the Corporate Mainframe Computer Home

A find… I especially like the “Old Man” application mentioned late in this post. Enjoy.
When the Coal-fired Power Plant in North Central Oklahoma downsized from 218 employees to 124 employees in 1994, everyone was scrambling to figure out how we were going to complete all the work that needed to be done to keep the plant running. We had become cross-functional teams which seemed to help right away, but we needed to know what jobs were the higher priority jobs, because it became obvious, at least for the short run, that we were not keeping up with the workload.
That was where the “Planners” came in. In other industries, we may call these guys, “Project Managers”. They planned the work, and gave us the Maintenance Orders when it was time to work on them. At first, this was a daunting task for the four planners at our plant. The planners were Mike Vogle, Glenn Rowland, Ben Davis and Tony Mena.

Displayed for you here are a few of the utilitarian forms of fencing I found skirting the yards of some homes here in Truth or Consequences (T or C), New Mexico. Fences that, perhaps, go beyond form and function to be…..something else….something imaginative, something expressive, something more.
