I once thought the bridges at the Outer Banks in North Carolina had to be the longest bridges ever, but none of them made the list of the Ten Longest Bridges in the World. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge pictured is #4. Link -via the Presurfer
Coffee Klatch Roasting’s two California retail coffee shops will offer free coffee to customers on Tuesday, February 26th from 5:30 PM until 8:30 PM PST “in celebration” of Starbucks’ planned 3-hour closure for espresso training. “I’m not sure why it’s going to take them 3 hours to learn how to press a button,” says Coffee Klatch Roasting owner Mike Perry. OUCH! (Read the Coffee Klatch press release ||
Stew Leonard’s has a similar deal)
Yesterday’s post led to some good email about Human Resources.
Understand that in days of yore, factories consisted of people and machines. The goal was to use more machines, fewer people, and to design processes so that the people were interchangeable, low cost and easily replaced. The more leverage the factory-owner had, the better. Hence Personnel or the even more cruel term: HR. It views people as a natural resource, like lumber.
My name is Logan and I live in Orlando, FL and I’m 9 years old. I love seeing the videos of the children in Africa when my Dad goes on his trips to Kenya. I would like to go to Africa to tell African kids about God, to help Hope Academy and the kids there, and to…
everything orangejack related got a little bump in the night and a few of the recent posts were shaken loose and they are out running around in the interwebs as we speak. i’m working on wrangling them back up and put them back where they belong. that may be why your rss went wonky for all things orangejack. sorry. so far i found the wanderers for orangejack.com and patricia’s place. my posts are a little more free-spirited and love to roam free.

I’m going to open up a bottle of a fine merlot and serve it up with some goat cheese on some fine wafer crispbread crackers with a little drop of honey on top. I think I have the right food for a NASCAR viewing, right?
Some have asked about the word ‘retirement’. The way we see it is there are many different words to describe “not working for someone anymore”. We have these different words to describe motivation, context, and emotion. We decided this was the best word to describe it.
The Marc and Angel productivity blog drums up 10 useful cell phone numbers to keep in your contacts list—the kind of numbers you don’t use often, but you really want to get at fast when you do. Among them, they make a strong argument to do a little research ahead of time and find a reputable, affordable, and, most importantly, available locksmith:
There’s nothing worst than being locked out, especially at night. Save yourself the hassle of trying to find a reputable locksmith with…
I’m home sick today. It’s that bug that makes me really tired, then makes me cough one day, then makes my throat hurt another day, then makes my nose run another day, blah blah yuck.
So, here’s some random thinking…
Barack Obama is going to be our next President. It’s not necessarily who I’m endorsing, it’s just my gut feeling that he will win. I just feel that the country doesn’t want — 1. Another Republican, and 2. Another Clinton. Like I said, it’s just my gut feeling.
MyBytes is like a trimmed but online version of FruityLoops or Adobe Audition. This service lets you can create MP3 ringtones and original songs inside your web browser without requiring any downloads.
To use MyBytes, open the Music Mixer tab and just drag any number of music loops from the built-in loop browser to the individual tracks.
When you are done composing the original music track, set the usage rights or download the song as an MP3 file.
On its first episode, Jon “Jonny Fairplay” Dalton essentially quit the show, and now he says that between his injury and his impending fatherhood combined to make it difficult for him to play the game.
Now that the writers’ strike is over, watercooler talks shifted from “when will the strike be over” to “what shows will come back, when, and for how many episodes.” One show that fans were extremely looking forward to (mostly after seeing the video after the jump) was 24. The series, first set to return in January 2008, was shelved by FOX so that season 7 could air uninterrupted.
Variety is reporting that the strike is indeed over. I think I speak for everyone at TV Squad when I say, “Yay!” to this news. The WGA West president announced that almost 93% of the guild members have voted in favor of lifting the strike. The total vote tally was 3,492 members for yes and 283 for no. The vote, held over 48 hours, allowed members to vote in person at the Writer’s Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills or the Gotham Crowne Plaza…
Starbucks is teaming up with AT&T to give Starbucks Card holders two hours of free wireless access per day beginning this spring. After that, it will cost $3.99 for a two-hour session. (Most Caribou stores offer one-hour of free access.) Also, all Starbucks partners will receive free AT&T Wi-Fi accounts allowing them to use the network in Starbucks company-operated locations offering Wi-Fi access. NOTE: There’s some confusion on the comments board about what kind of card is needed — the…
This weekend, I learned the best possible reason why tornadoes do not have names. According to Jim, hurricanes are named because you watch them develop, you track their path, then they come knocking at your door. You’ve got a relationship with a hurricane. A tornado? That’s just a one-night-stand.
