I'm Claude Rains and I approve this message

If you’ve ever tried to wind a wing nut or fiddle with a fastener with those thin, sticky gloves you know what I mean. With Invisible Glove, I can work with my hands directly on the job in front of me.

Sentence of the Day

Chunk was from nearby Hemel Hempstead and drove a gold Vauxhall Cavalier Sri, the type of car favoured by substitute teachers and people with gambling debts.

Thought for the Day

A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth – some obvious truth he isn't supposed to say.

Apprenticeship

Charlie Dunn was a remarkable man. He was from an Irish family that were shoemakers and bootmakers. He was born in 1898 on a houseboat in Arkansas, moved to Paris, Texas in a covered wagon. I always felt that working for Charlie was like working for history. He had made cowboy boots and shoes all his life, and if I wanted to know about styles or what it was like in the 1900′s, all I had to do was ask him.He was an incredible artist and used cowboy boots as his medium. All his life, he keep himself educated, reading always.

RTFM

Emergency physicians, on the other hand, had a better than average work-life balance but the highest burnout scores. The inconsistencies began to make sense when a team at the Mayo Clinic discovered that one of the strongest predictors of burnout was how much time an individual spent tied up doing computer documentation.

It won't be a children's birthday

Things I love about rooting for a team with a non-English coach. Literal translation of idiomatic expressions to English.

Katy bar the door!

Kids - when you're considering a mate-for life ...

Legend has it that during the King's stay at a Dominican chapterhouse in Perth, a group of men led by Sir Robert Graham came to the door searching for the King in order to kill him. The King's Chamberlain, Robert Stuart, aware of the plot against his life, had taken the precaution of removing the bolt from the door of the room in which James and his queen were staying.

Catherine sprang to the door and placed her arm through the staples to bar the assassins' entrance. However, they forced the door open anyway, breaking Catherine's arm, and discovered and killed the King. From that point on, according to the story, Catherine took the surname of "Barlass".

Education is a passport to the real training.

The “real training,” as I’ve already explained, primarily occurs on-the-job. By doing. You don’t learn how to fly a plane by listening to lectures on flying theory – or deploying the “critical thinking” skills you gained by writing essays on Shakespeare. You learn to fly a plane by getting in a flight simulator (or later, a cockpit) and listening to a flight instructor tell you what you’re doing wrong. The same goes for almost any job… except Shakespeare scholar.
