Royal Wedding Royal Schedding

I posted something in Facebook that I can not back up with anything online. It was something I read in either Sports Illustrated, Sporting News or the Vancouver Sun sports section.

Let me set the scene. It is in the middle of NFL training camp. Dick Vermeil is coming off a season where his Philadelphia Eagles  lost the Super Bowl to the Raiders. Just to put that in context it would take another 25 years before the Eagles appeared in another Super Bowl and 38 years before they would win one.

He was asked his thoughts on the Royal Wedding and he replied ( to the best of my ability ) " The royal what???? "

Good news I tried finding any proof of this happening after I wrote the introduction and no I was not smoking something. I found this on Twitter.

The Tweet That Is Forever Relevant

It Is Better To Have

It is better to have love and lost than to sit at home and watch Laverne and Shirley.

Earloop Blues

 I am a recent owner of   Bluetooth earphones. There were no real instructions and I attached the supplied hook to the main earpiece. I thought I had a 50% chance of getting it right. Which of course means I also had a corresponding 50% chance of getting it wrong. Guess where what side of the coin fell for me?

I Googled " how to remove ear loop plastic bluetooth". It was clasped tight and I tried for a bit to dislodge it. After some attempts at a search and trying to loosen I got nowhere. I guess not damaging that cheap piece of plastic was victory enough. I even tried inserting the earpiece without relying on the hook. It was a lame attempt.

No idea why it took so long . All along I was putting the main earpiece on my right ear like it was preordained as such. I put it on the left ear and bingo! If only other problems had such a direct solution.

Wide World of Jobs

Every job you ever had helped to get you where you are today. Experience is a great thing. Experience is a name we give our mistakes. Above are just about every job I ever had that I held onto for a decent amount of time. Not all of them you will find in my resume or my LinkedIn page. I even forgot my sandwich maker in a small deli in Marpole back in 1986. I made that slide back in 2002 or 2003 so my actual stay in Percom lasted till 2014. You have to live a little before you can write. Well my work experience proves that I have lived more than a little.
