We've been having a rash of thefts from people's mailboxes over the last six months. I was told this morning that a couple guys up the street caught one of the culprits red handed. They apparently thwarted his attempt, locked him in his own trunk and called the cops........eventually.

Use to work with a guy from Fairbanks Alaska. He was telling me about an old guy that lived just outside the city limits, where they no longer plowed. Apparently the guy looked outside (in winter) and saw 2 guys trying to steal his 4X4. He shot them both. The state police came and took the thieves and that was that. Apparently in Alaska, at least at that time, taking a guys 4x4 in winter is thought of as attempted murder so he was justified to shoot them

I'm totally onboard with that. Alaska is not an easy place to live.

And the fun continues today....Whaddaya mean you dont have time to read 50 pages of documentation we sent you with the new system you now have to deal with, amongst the other 500 you are currently responsible for.... and after that interaction...it took them all of 2 minutes to answer my question and give me all the info I need..... I'm thinking reading a 50-page document would take a bit longer....

Marinating salmon and tuna steaks in a little soy, citrus, and light brown sugar brine. They don't need much, so full of flavor, about 3 hours soak and then an hour on the smoker.

I don't do much with tuna, but don't forget to get that pellicle on the salmon. Super important step that so many people miss.

Well it is nice to see my days in the office in IT this week are consistent....ly bad

It is great when someone is having an IT issue, and they ask for help from the wrong people. Just happened, they asked asked another administrative type, who told them what to do....most unfortunately it was wrong, I was standing there, and told then what they needed to do...but the person that told them first, although not in my chain of command, is hire up the food chain than I so...they are listening to them...and the original person insists I am wrong.....nothing is working, and it is not going to..but then....everything I need is working today...for a change...so...Whatever...

I love a good cigar. Haven't had any cigars in three years or so. Off I went to get a handful, only to find the store out of business. There's very few places here that have cigars, period, never mind quality cigars.

I immediately got on the coconut wireless. (local slang term for putting the word out)

Heard back on where to go, called the place, and shall go in the morning.

Damn, if that ain't right and just I don't know what is.
