When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope. Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life.
For the days of Auld Lang Syne, my love
I wanna drink a cup of kindness with you
For the sake of the days gone by
No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity misused.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter’s morn
I turn at last to paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell
With this I sign off
While winter is fading at the house, it hasn’t let go in the park. We have to go out with the Bull Crew so we have people that know what they are doing with bad travel so they can help us if needed.
This house is where we were working setting up a network and connecting PCs.
The snow ended for the ride back to the office.
Back at the office the snow is almost gone as well. Just have to watch out for this guy while walking around.
Today the Montana winter showed up a little. It was 7 at the house and 1 at work.
Met some of the National Park Ranger IT team. Nice guys. They covered the freedom of information act usage by environmentalist that are working to limit technology in national parks. They covered regulations in regards to technology with historical sites. I learned about the technology committee for Yellowstone. I have some documents that I need to read that cover specifically the use of WI-FI in national parks and historical sites.
Had lunch with some guys from engineering. I learned a lot about elk hunting, which I thought would be very easy with them being everywhere. I was informed that the elk know when the hunting season is and you can’t find a single one during that time.
In the office people are starting to discuss a broom-ball tournament. I “think” it involves brooms, a small ball and a hockey net. Not sure, but I am being told I will be on a team soon…..
Lastly I have a shout out for the nice Fed-Ex person. I received a letter today. First off they actually came to my porch, but more importantly they found a good size rock and placed the package between the wall on the porch and the rock. No throw the envelope and run for this driver. Top notch customer service.
