In this weeks edition:

Another one of those Mondays…
I had high hopes for this week, though I must admit that it’s not getting off to a very good start. I guess I deserve it… At the conclusion of the work day last Friday, I thought to myself… this has been a pretty productive day considering its Friday the 13th.
I came to work bright and early as usual on Monday only to find that our email system wasn’t working. We called our internet provider which did no good at all. I’m still waiting on that call to be returned. By about 10:00 AM panic began to set in. With the use of some of our staff’s personal email accounts we called some of the regular contributors that send material over the weekend and had them to resend their contributions to the alternate address. That helped. As of this writing we appear to be on schedule to meet our deadline for this week’s edition and it should be on time. However it will be next week before we realize what we missed due to the email issue. If you sent something for this week’s paper and you don’t find it here, I suggest you send it again, if it is not of a timely nature.
Technology is great, but its times like this that make me want to pull what little hair I have left out. This is one of the big reasons that we set our deadline for copy at 4:00 p.m. Thursday for the next Tuesday’s paper. If anything does happen, be it with email, or other aspects of our production and mailing process, it gives us more time to correct it or find an alternative. Obviously, we didn’t have that luxury this week. Hopefully we will get the issues resolved and be back to normal soon. I simply am too old for this crap…

Like many of you I had to watch some football Sunday night. I like Pittsburg and Green Bay, so it was nice to see both teams advance. In addition, both games were really good ones which made them even more enjoyable to watch. I don’t watch a lot of NFL games and this year with my feelings toward Kapernick, they have been really sparse. I have made a few exceptions and now that the season is drawing to a close, I guess I will put my feelings toward him aside. I hope drama such as he has created doesn’t exist next year. If it does, I will again be watching cartoons with the grandchildren…
At any rate, next week is sure to provide some more exciting football action and I am looking forward to it. However, I must say I am not looking forward to another Monday like this one. I’m glad it’s almost over.

Will return soon...
