Question for January 5, 2019

Have you ever used a CB [citizen band] radio?

 

I used a CB back in the early nineties when I was working at a canoe outfitters so we could contact base.  These days I regularly use FB radios to keep us together when hiking/kayaking in areas without cell coverage.

For January 6, 2019

 

What other hobbies do you have?

 

Top few:

 

- Silver and gold smithing

- Fishing

- Bird/Nature watching

- Hiking/kayaking/anything that gets me away from people

 

I have eliminated a great many hobbies that I used to list, simply because, although I still do them as time permits or requires, they are no longer passions.

I work for a company that has created a few.  I have only recently been promoted to the Project team for a larger role.  I do not feel I can say I have created a project.

 

I have backed a single digit number of projects for myself and have been added to the company projects as a backer for work related reasons.

Right now, "stupid is as stupid does." Keep having recurring issues with a couple people that aren't idiots but you wouldn't know it from the way they're behaving.

I believe this is called "Hanlons Razor". I don't know much about Mr Hanlon, but it is used a mental tool for finding simple solutions to complex situations. (In much the same way as Occam's Razor)

 

Oddly, I've also heard this saying attributed to Napoleon.
