Monk will be back for a seventh season. It isn’t an even number, a fact that would irritate the OCD detective to no end, but it is a lucky one. USA Network has ordered 16 new episodes of the idiosyncratic mystery series which has turned character actor Tony Shalhoub into an Emmy-winning star. USA has plans to run eight of the new episodes in July and August; then the other eight in January and…
Drew Mackie of Back of the Cereal Box blog did something so amazingly genius that I was surprised that it was never done before. He took the intro of The Simpsons and stitched the scenes into one continuous panorama:
Technically, in every episode of The Simpsons that begins with the un-abbreviated intro, Milhouse appears. So too does Nelson, Dr. Hibbert, and even Maude Flanders, who overcomes the considerable handicap of being dead.
As you know I’m looking for a new job. We are looking to stay in the Orlando area first simply because we are so well connected to friends and our church. However, we are open to relocate.
Since my family is in the Greenville, SC area and much of Patricia’s family is in the Washington, DC area, we are also looking from Atlanta up to DC for opportunities. We are East Coast people, but if we needed to move off the right-coast, then we wouldn’t mind Denver or Seattle!
So who was in the coffin at the end of Season 3? I’ve got my thoughts. What are yours? Share them at dailylost.com.
When I put all these pieces together, I begin to think that the profile for the person in the coffin can’t be one of the [Oceanic] 6 (too popular for no one to show up) and someone that Jack would have some sympathy for (he wants to go back and probably help the islanders). However, it’s someone that Kate is repulsed by despite the battle to protect the island.
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.

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.
