    It's one of those great Roger McGuinn/Byrds hits that really didn't get alot of commercial airplay. I love the story line of the song.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Second, I got a job offer. Last night, around 5PM, a recruiter called to tell me to expect an offer for a 3 month contract position with (a food company). This morning, I got the call, and an email with the "onboarding" documents to be filled out, scanned, and returned. Criminy! Fourteen pages for the contract company and four pages for the client!!! It's a food company - not the DoD!!

    So, I'm scanning the docs, and the phone rings. It's the owner of a company I interviewed at yesterday. He offered me that job at what would be 16K per year more base, plus year end bonus, plus full bennies, plus 11 paid holidays, plus 15 PDOs. And, it's a half hour from home, instead of an hour and fifteen minutes.

    I was out 7-1/2 months, used up my unemployment payments the first of April (jerks in Congress playing games), and couldn't get a bite all that time. Feast or famine, eh?

    There were a few in there I wouldn't mind dying with. But I had to pee, so I escaped to the Men's.

    The whiskey was good. Left my pint on the table, so i need another glass to go with it. Paddy, this round.

    I'm not asking what happened. Just glad to be here.

    A mix of milk and seawater. Didn't taste it.

    In Sitka, I did set out some hemlock boughs at low tide, weighted with rocks, and they were heavy with herring roe- delicious!
