Yesterday marked the 43rd anniversary of one of the great "plays" in baseball history.  :great

I had no idea.

Thanks for sharing that piece of history.  Evil was defeated that day some 43 years ago.

So I am back from my Canadian tour.

Must say Montreal is a beautiful city.  Quebec City and La Chateau of Frontenac ( the castle of Frontenac for the less cultured in this hood) was an experience.  I ate like a big Puerco.  Have to say
Tight pants may prove lethal to my beloved tweens at this point.

People in French Canada are very welcoming.  Learn a few phrases here in there.  However I thought the Ingles was hard, French is just weird. 

Back home and slowly getting back into things, which is not a good thing

You got back in time before Philippine declares war on Canada.  :rolleyes  And you'd be the foreigner stuck in the middle with no allegiance to either.  :shocked

Btw do you know that independent Canada still pledges allegiance to the Queen of England

It is weird in that way.

Today HR emailed me 16(?) resumes for prospective candidates for two open positions in my crew. I skimmed through them and I feel really bad for these people. I think the department is leaning towards one of them in particular (maybe not the best candidate, but a known commodity), so in reality there's probably only one spot open. I feel bad that 16 people are looking to this with hope. Wishing they get this awful low paying job, I feel bad for them from that standpoint. I also feel bad that all 16 of them are undoubtedly, sight unseen, better options than 14 or 15 of the people I have now.  That really sucks. It's hard rejecting people that are much much better than what you already have.

Also bad, is to genuinely liking a co-worker, knowing well he/she is about to be fired and realizing there is nothing you can do to change that; or influence him/ her in any way to improve their chances.

Oh I don't have that problem, just the opposite.  I dislike most of them and they won't get rid of them! lol

I counted yesterday... it's 21 applications.  Luckily I found out I don't have to do 21 interviews. (actually many more because there's other spots open).  They told me to make a short list of 4-5 I'd like to interview. They do the same. Then we start picking. New department with a new way of doing things.

 We often can't get anyone good, generally you interview, make your choice and then they find out how little it pays and refuse the job. You end up with your 3rd or 4th choice.

Is it me, or does it seem to be raining an awful lot lately?   :thinking

I was upstate last week/weekend, to turkey hunt.  Didn't work out too well, I ended up bed ridden I guess with the flu.  Monday it didn't rain.  That was the first day in 10 days without rain.  Tuesday when I left it was raining again.

This is because I decided to buy a telescope to observe them planets and all. The moment it arrived there has not been a clear sky night ever since.  My fault
