Death Burger At Alices

Due to my becoming less active and working more, I now have high cholesterol. Not deadly, but not good. But even armed with this knowledge, I still chose the Harley burger today when out at lunch.

This burger has 1/3 lb sirloin, 4 pieces of sausage, 2 slices of bacon, cheddar cheese, muenster cheese, grilled unions, lettuce and tomato on a bun. If you go to Alices, ask for it by name… the Harley!

If your wife asks, tell you had the turkey and avocado and man up to the chest pains when shes not looking.

A Homeless Guy Saved My Life Today

I ride my motorcycle to and from work along the same route every day, rain or shine. This morning I approached one of my usual stoplights. At this light, there are four lanes of traffic flowing in both directions, intersected by the same number of lanes crossing at the intersection. To handle the amount of traffic that flows through this intersection, there is a delay for people turning left across the traffic with a left turn light.

On a normal morning, all oncoming traffic comes to a stop, the left arrow turns green, and our two lanes of traffic proceed through the turn… but this morning was unique. I was the first one waiting at the light, and as it turned green I accelerated into the intersection and into the turn. But before I could finish crossing, a homeless man with a shopping cart started crossing the road. I came to a stop and put my feet down as he crossed the intersection about 10 feet in front of me. And just as I came to a stop, a truck ran the red light and sped through the intersection a few inches from the front of my bike! He was so close that the wind from him speeding by nearly blew me over.

So, today was the first time a homeless man has done anything I am thankful for. If he hadn’t stopped traffic by ignoring the traffic signals, I would certainly be dead this morning. So, thank you homeless guy for breaking the law by crossing illegally instead of writing your name with your own feces in front of my apartment this morning. You are an angel.

Attracting the twentysomething Worker

theFerf, Hard at WorkThis is one you will not want to miss. A great representation of my generation and an article I believe truly defines us (at least me) pretty clearly. There are a few things in it that I don’t agree with, but then again… that’s what we do :)

From the Article:
“This is the most high-maintenance workforce in the history of the world,” says Bruce Tulgan, the founder of leading generational-research firm RainmakerThinking. “The good news is they’re also going to be the most high-performing workforce in the history of the world. They walk in with more information in their heads, more information at their fingertips – and, sure, they have high expectations, but they have the highest expectations first and foremost for themselves.”

Just a quick note…. It feels great to be home and working again, at least for the short time I will be here. I am back in Tennessee for the next week or so to relax and maintain the house a little bit. It’s kinda hard to believe that this is where Podcast Alley and my 2+ year journey with podcasting and PodShow all started.

You should smell the fresh air and feel the warm breeze…there is nothing like it. Plus, I’m working wirelessly from my front porch drinking coffee from the v1 Senseo coffee machine!
