First of all, I am on record for not enjoying training conferences by in large. I’m also not a fan of Laughin, Nevada mainly because it’s a run down city on the other side of the Colorado River from Arizona. However, I have bandwidth for the computer (quite a change from the status quo at the White Wolf Mine).
Sometimes I wonder why I volunteer to do things like this.
There are a lot of people at this conference whose identities are completely wrapped up with their service in rural fire districts. Lots of ego. Lots of fire logo stickers on four wheel drive pick ups in the lot. And part of me is glad that they derive such pleasure from self-identification in the way that they do. They’d run through a burning building to rescue me…maybe. Maybe not if they knew that it was “me”…
But yeah, the conference is a bit boring.
The New Sig
Because you can’t have enough toys. I’d really like to have one, but could I afford to shoot it? The answer is that I’d end up selling almost all of my other toys if I had to, just to buy ammo to feed this bad boy. We need to open up the laws in Arizona… Nothing says love like an MG338. Share with those you love that this would be THE PERFECT Valentine’s Day gift.
Thought of the Day
I was thinking about stellar black holes. They (and dark matter) are the glue that holds galaxies and star clusters together. And if you’re not quite familiar with how they work, this may not make a lot of sense to you. Memory is like an event horizon. What is caught in it is gone – but it’s always there. Until you get old and then there is no telling…
