Here’s a video of that storm in Maysville, NC. Made it back inside before the downpour. It was fast moving and short lived.

Approaching storm coming through

Here’s some pictures of a nice looking storm hitting Maysville, NC right now.

 

In cases of gun violence, why do people blame the gun, and NOT the person?  Why is that?

And in DUI cases which may or may not result in deaths of other people, why do people blame the PERSON, and NOT the booze or the car?

Can someone explain that to me?

My new job

About a month ago, I got a new job.  I will be working for American Express in the Membership Rewards section, doing phone support for the card holders redeeming their points.

The first month of training is over and I’m happy to say that my 3 tests went pretty well.  94 on two of them and a 98 on the final one.

Tuesday we start the phase called Nesting, where we are on the production floor taking calls from card holders.  That portion lasts 6 weeks, then we are considered tenured agents and are officially out of training.

I really don’t anticipate much of a problem here.  My last job was in a call center working for Hilton, taking reservations for hotels all over the globe.  I really enjoyed it.  And honestly, I’d still be doing it if the job was in another state.  I hated Florida.  It is a silly place.

JoJo taking a shower

Here’s our new family member taking his first shower in his new house. He looks a bit nervous as he’s only been in the house for a few days. He normally squawks and flips everywhere in the shower but …

Welcome to the newest member of the family!

His name is JoJo, he’s a 5 year old blue and gold Macaw. We adopted him for $500. He loves people, loves to talk, and dances to music. He’s quite the character.
