First day back to work since before thanksgiving... wow.  What a stack of junk to take care of... 😳

Don't fall for it.  One of my sage executive managers once told me that they look for guys (gals) that can efficiently empty the incoming box - and the faster you empty the faster they refill. Of course he told me this during a performance review, just before he retired, and after stuffing my inbox on a regular basis 😆.

home sweet (new) home. made sure to get my clubs off the truck and into the basement so they weren’t cold for another night. priorities are definitely in order, haha.   

I've mentioned before that I work for a major auto manufacturer and one of the perks is killer deals on lease cars. I went yesterday and replaced mine with an Audi Q3. I've been wanting to lease

When it comes to groups that involve kids and parent volunteers to help run things, why is it that the parents who do the absolute least amount of work are the ones who complain the most and never have a clue about what's going on? Even when they've been involved for *years*? It baffles me.

Actually Rusty that goes for any organization whether it is in Church , a volunteer fire department or a car club.

That is a cool souvenir. As for the kit it seems crazy now but how many people did buy it for their kids. It was put in everything back when radioactive elements were first discovered, even toothpaste

When I was in grad school, I worked at our research reactor and gave tours on occasion. In order to illustrate that we are constantly surrounded by radioactivity we would test Coleman lantern mantles (contain thorium to increase brightness), which would make the monitors alarm. Ironically, because of NRC regulations, that simple lantern mantle could never leave the building even though you could buy one at Walmart.

When I was active with the adult leadership part of Boy Scouts we were well aware that our mantle lanterns should stay in the Troop storage room when going into Canada because it was said to cross the border with them would set off the sensors at the crossing point.  Having had to pass through military facility checkpoints countless times in my life, I am not about to test that possibility, all lamps were changed for LED lamps and those mantles were never been touched again.

After I graduated in nuclear chemistry in 1969 and before I moved here to the Hanford Nuclear Site in 1970, I stayed on in school at the research reactor to work with the rocks brought back from the moon... because who could pass up on that opportunity!!  😃

My favorite was the demonstration of the Geiger Counter to the NY State Senate Chambers at the State Capitol in the late 70s during the Three Mile Island incident.  As soon as it was turned on it sounded like a popcorn popper on overdrive, being it was in a building made of granite, confused all the news folks who couldn't understand how (1) it wasn't malfunctioning and (2) how the building could be so radioactive and nobody had warned the public. 🤣 I was a high school student and just about died laughing at their stupidity...

I can remember when I was on the County Haz-Mat team we had those counters made in the 60s for Civil Defense. I took one home one night and showed the wife. It went wild when you got near the color TV screen. I think after I left and moved here they got more modern ones

LOL yep they did not know the difference between Alpha Beta or Gamma waves. Believe it or not you have to watch this stuff in the scrap metal industry. All of the mills have radiation detection equipment located at their scales going in. Nucor Steel is really really strict on that sort of thing . We never had any loads rejected but I have seen them reject loads because they set the alarms off

While we're in Ohio quarantined so we can see our new grandson on Christmas, I took the opportunity to walk our course for exercise. I saw that they're draining one of the water hazards and are going to fill it in. There have got to be thousands of golf balls lying in the mud! This is just a small sample.

I also watch the series show "In the Heat of the Night " with Carrol O Connor---- WGN in Chicago does not cut it either which sometimes I wonder these days and times how they get away with it. And often on that show you will see the Old Archie come out too
