    LOL! I haven't checked this forum in quite some time. Nicest subject for a thread in a while. Glad to see your pup and momma are doing well Jeff.

    Not a watcher of this particular brand of TV - though I do know who this guy is.

    About two years ago this was my status among the locals - not that I minded as few peoples opinions are of import to myself. But it seems I was right in my stand though by myself, can't wait to attend a few FT's in the Spring, maybe some of those folks can tell me what crow tastes like .

    Do you understand that little you say means much to me?

    Jeff,

    I haven't been on here in quite a while. I'm glad to see you have a new pup, and it's doing well.

    Sometimes, when you focus too much on what you hoped would happen, you can fail to appreciate what actually did. Sola may well turn out to be one of those little miracles to remind us that the things we didn't anticipate can be pretty darn good. As of this morning, day 7 of her life, she weighed in at 2 3/4 pounds, or 44 ounces. That compares with a maximum weight of 30-31 ounces for the largest 7 day old Lab puppies that I have ever had (out of ~ 80). However, she is not fat, just precocious. She is already beginning to lift her body up in the first signs of walking, and she is hard to hold when you pick her up. Early neurological stimulation is pretty much out the door except as something I do to exercise myself. Sola is quite stimulated enough.



    Still a little early to see signs of Mon and Dad:

    Ken, have spent the last few days on the farm - sunup to sundown - like you, he works hard - only it's harvest time 365 days of the year!

    But in 15 more days I will be posting a POTUS PLACE item on the main forum & will expect all of you who were so critical to support my right to do same .

    Agree!

    Got an email while gone to the farm from someone who formerly worked in our group

I have to admit that in my career I have occasionally felt it necessary to deflate a rookie Engineer's ego for taking too much credit for good work that largely came to him from others. At such times, I would issue a "Sundstrom-esqe snort of" - Good Ore makes Good Operators". Since none of these guys had a clue as to what I was talking about, the required explanation was a good way of getting the point across.
    With it was an attachment:

    The 1st quote is from someone whom I constantly discussed the skills of communication with -

    The 2nd is from a young man whom I counseled to move somewhere where he would be appreciated. I do not give out praise lightly & everyone recognized that.

    So there are times when not saying something that requires saying is also wrong. As you can see from the comments made by these, at the time, young men starting their Engineering careers that required something be said.

    The reason they can say "not in the most flattering of terms" is they now recognize I did not care what they thought, I was interested in molding them into productive adults. Which happened .

    So when JD makes his attempt at disparaging remarks , it becomes water off a duck's back.

    Glad to see you taking the time to post - your side of the fence could use the talent upgrade . Have a nice day!
