We went to see "The Hunger Games" Friday night. Overall, I found most of the film enjoyable. Early in the film there I had a difficult time following the cinematography and editing. The pictures moved a little too fast and switched too frequently. When did it become the "best" way of filming by moving the camera a little.
Recently I had a conversation with one of our schools that had been approached by a competitor who had offered prices much lower than ours. I asked for a copy of their list (without their pricing) to see what was being offered. Here's what I found:
I had a few random topics go through my head lately. None of them seem worth a whole blog, but I thought I'd share them in one.
SISTER WIFE REVENGE
We're only a few weeks from Daylight Savings Time (Sunday, March 11) followed shortly thereafter with the start of Spring. Which means winter is finally winding down. Although we did get about 5 inches of snow today, the biggest snowfall of the season.
Well, it's about that time of year again when we start looking for summer workers.
Since beginning in 1991, we've hired 244 students, some staying with us for a number of years. And it's hard to determine if Terri & I have learned more from them than they learned from us. I'm hoping it was good for all of us.
Finally (my second surgery for a detached retina was in August of 2011) I was going to get the cataract surgery that would start the return of eyesight to the left eye.
I spent the morning answering emails and in meetings so I was pretty pumped for the 2:30 event.
Just received new about two major changes in the marketplace.
Acco brands, maker of Wilson Jones binders, Swingline staplers and a host of other business products, announced the purchase of MeadWestvaco, the producer of Mead products including 5 Star notebooks, binders and the Cambridge brand of products.
Milwaukee has joined the nation with a teacher being accused of child enticement. Stories are showing up all over the Internet about teachers, coaches, band leaders, scout leaders, just about anyone we've believed we could trust, that are facing charges.
It's starting to be a struggle to see what's best for consumers.
Crayola recently sent us a letter letting us know that any products they have made outside the US will now rise in price by 7.5% to 10%.
Back from of a vacation in La-La Land and settling in for the New Year.
First of all, Terri & I will both be posting blogs in the future. Hence the "From Gene" at the top.
