Another Hot Rod Cowgirl Post


GOD BLESS AMERICA

Apologies


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!

Lovely Reflections

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.

    • 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.

    Power Plant Men

    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.

    This was a new…

    Six Months Of Spew!


    And what is the verbal slew? Check it out.

    The Verbal Spew Review

    Ace Ventura Celebration

    It all started six months ago with a throwaway comment made by my brother. Shortly afterward I started spewing and The Verbal Spew Review was born. I had no clear idea of what I wanted this blog to be and no clue what I was going to do with it but here it is six months later, my brain’s little baby, doing its thing. I still don’t know exactly what that thing is precisely, but it’s doing it and I like it.

    Six months isn’t a long time in the grand scheme of things. I follow blogs that have been established for years, and in comparison to those behemoths The Spew is merely a drop in the ocean of blogdom. Knowing, however, that I have the attention span of a gnat, I am delighted to have made it this far. This is no doubt largely thanks to you, the readers…
