Seat 8

I got a geeky request the other day (my favorite kind): a fellow O'er wanted to swap blog links. I proudly now invite you to take a gander at Seat 8 where I'm sure you'll find something interesting to ponder.

Holiday fun

  A co-worker and friend of mine sets up a Christmas train display each year in the office. Their department has recently moved allowing for an elaborate setup where the train travels the length of a long row of cubicals. Lee, the train's "engineer" and owner, even set up a timer to allow the train to run for a variable amount of time.

What's the annual holiday decoration of choice in your office? Posted by Picasa

I hope everyone has come through the Ozark's first big winter storm in three years ok. If anything I got a chance to take some neat pictures and use the 4 wheel drive.

I haven't been able to attend any of the recent Springfield Blogger's activities, the local camera club meetings, or many of the other extra-curricular activities I would usually attend. Things at work have been busy with new challenges and end of the year activities.

On the home-front winter only slows down how fast chores can get accomplished. I've also started teaching some classes at OTC. My first class was last week and went well, I think. I think we all learned a little. I know I came away from my first engagement as a teacher with some lessons learned and hopefully I can apply those lessons in future classes.

I've also had a few lessons to learn outside of the classroom. I'm committed to making sure I learn from mistakes on those fronts.
