How do you feel about them?  I travel a lot, and have used them when I really needed some work done.  Now that I'm trying to be better about the shoes I own and how I treat them, I'm not sure I want…Continue

I work with a lot of really bright people, and we all have a bad habit of talking over each other.  I think it is due to us being able to understand the other speaker's point before they are finished…Continue

What I learned on my trip...

Posted on February 22, 2010 at 3:06pm 1 Comment

Sometimes stereotypes are dead wrong.

If you make an effort to speak the language, most locals are nice. Yes, even the French. They were great!

Sometimes, even if you speak the language, the locals can be insufferable. I'm looking at you, London.

And, of course, I'm not capable of blogging every day when I travel. Too much else to do!

Sometimes you get lucky...

The hotel is near the lake, though my window looks the other way.

But I can see the old church from it, and can almost look down into the plaza.

There is a festival going now with bands and costumes. We picked a good time to be here. It's all in the plaza.

Which means I can forget sleep, because they will be going all night, I've been told.

Nothing left for it except to join them...

Switzerland Day 1

Up at 6, hit the road. Crossed three countries, have arrived in Zurich. Great scenery along the way, will share pics later. Weather is a bit brisk (@4 C) but not bad. OFf to scavenge for food...

Epinal Day 3

Posted on February 5, 2010 at 4:26pm 0 Comments

Close to being recovered from jet lag, though not quite there yet.



I've learned quite a bit in the last few days. I've picked up a lot of French for the short time. I've gotten enough that I could get by at dinner in a restaurant where no one spoke English and no English menu was available. Went with paella, darn tasty.



The team here has been very nice to work with. Many of the stereotypes of the French could not be more wrong. I'm sure there are some who live them to fullest,… Continue

Hi Dwayne,

Thanks for the kind invite. I'll definitely check out the book club. I'm currently reading Steinbeck's "Travels With Charley" and will start "East Of Eden" next week.

After that, I'm definitely looking for some good reads.

Thanks for the group invite. I'm writing a book that requires a lot of research so I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to participate for a long time :/ I bookmarked it for future reference, though!

Mr Lay,

Thanks for your invitation to the BookOfTheMonth group. I'm not
sure I could create the time, will keep it in mind though. I'm
ogling also at the SciFi group, may have a look at it (as time
permits).

Before considering chatting about (fiction) books, I need to
connect on an intellectual level. So I want first to look and see
if I can tease out a discussion (i.e. link minds) on your
"Philosophers" group (which I was very pleased to find).

I have seen the (fiction and nonfiction) book lists on
ArtOfManliness.com, had already distilled out of it quite a
sizeable shopping list ...

Are you a full-time discussion group manager at ArtOfManliness.com ?

PS: Today, when I tried first to register at your "Philosophers"
group to post a new topic, a popup appeared asking me to type in a
message to you -- however later it seemed to me somehow that this
may have been superfluous. Not sure. (I've been on a lot of
email-based discussion lists, but this is one my first web-based
fora.) If it was superfluous, then my apologies for my awkwardness
and for the confusion.

With best Regards,

Menno Rubingh

Many thanks. Will look into.

As a matter of fact, I just started a biography on Alexander the Great. I'll definitely look at the book club.

Thanks for the birthday wish.

Namaste',
