Driving in the South can be a challenge! Here’s a real sign near Athens, GA

Driving in the South

Those of you who’ve driven around in the South will appreciate the below highway sign.  Imagine cruising up on this sign doing about 80 (if you go slower you’ll be run off the road) and trying to figure out what road you’re supposed to take.  I lived there for 2 years and I still can’t make heads or tails out of this sign.  LOL

Driving in the South

Yep driving in the south will definitely keep you on your toes!

Linkedin recommendations for the unworthy…How to NOT recommend someone

linkedin recommendationsI get requests for LinkedIn recommendations from connections on an almost daily basis.  Being someone that is honest and believes we should stand behind our word I have a hard time writing recommendations for people that I don’t believe cut the mustard.

Years ago I read  Sleeping dogs don’t lay from Richard Lederer.  The book was a true gem for anyone that loves the idiosyncrasies of the English language.  He had some great examples of writing double-meaning recommendations (below are a few ambiguous recommendations.)  Great, cutting humor!

 

LinkedIn recommendations

  • You’ll be lucky to get this person to work for you!
  • I cannot recommend this person too highly.
  • I recommend this candidate with no qualifications whatsoever!
  • She has made immeasurable contributions to our firm.
  • Nobody is better than this man!
  • I found myself frequently raving about her work!
  • We were teetering on the threshold of bankruptcy last year, and her efforts pulled us through.
  • For the services he has rendered to our firm over the years, we find ourselves deeply indebted!
  • I would place her research on the cutting edge.
  • She is now ready to strike out in a career.
  • Whatever task he undertakes, he will be fired with enthusiasm!
  • I would place this student in a class by herself.

Now you’ll know how to write that next LinkedIn recommendations even when you don’t want to!   The next LinkedIn recommendation you write you can be sure to be honest!

How to cook an egg when you’re at work -Funny Picture

I love to be creative and think outside the box!  The other day at work I wanted to fry an egg but I didn’t have anything to cook with (or so I thought).  Suddenly I realized that I did, in fact, have a “hot plate”. It was disguised as my coffee maker!  The below funny picture image shows how I “MacGyvered” it.  It took about 10 minutes, but hey, I wasn’t that hungry!

Good luck Hillary, Don’t blow it!

Best of luck Hillary; Just don’t blow it!

They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words.  In this case I think I find that statistic a little “hard to swallow”…  LOL!  Then again, in case you have no choice in the matter, this might help!

don't blow it

Good advice from an old friend.  I wonder if any other scandals will come to light in the coming months before election time.

Then again, what does it matter anyway?
