Bob realized that very day he wanted an office job!
I have it on very good personal authority that office jobs feature the same experiences on a daily basis.

Nope (IIRC it was white plastic instead of black), but it was pretty obvious from the bulk that it was his dirty clothes.

When I left the house about an hour later at 10 pm for some late night shopping the temperature had risen to 12C and I took off my jacket!
In the northern Rocky Mountains and the high plains there is something we call a "Chinook" A warm wind will blow from the west and the temperature may go from 10F to 40F in a matter of an hour. Perhaps there is a British version?

You got that right! Worked for a bank once. It was a far worse experience than today's sewer mud wrestling event with wet TP suprise!

When I worked in civil engineering way back in the Dark Ages we did everything on paper. And I used an HP33C scientific notation calculator rather than a slide rule to make complex calculations.


Sometimes I reflect on those days, and miss them.


Even though the work seemed daunting, looking back it is easy to see that they were much simpler times. No cell phones. No computers. No internet. None of the distractions of today's 'Space Age' life.
In my engineering class there were the users of HP with RPN and Ti with algebraic.

Now all calculators I know of use algebraic, except the simple one on my phone which uses something that looks like algebraic and can do the right hierarchy of operations but does not have brackets - so it demands thinking like using RPN.

I'm not sure what makes you connect Jane with Jena. Besides, when did Shirley become Jane?

I did a little better with these than the ones at Bellingrath. I'll probably go back to Bellingrath with a tripod later this month.

I have no idea how she got up there - and neither did she. Nor how to get down. My friends who grew up with cows assure me that a cheeseburger is actually smarter than the bovine it came from.

I worked on a dairy farm for 6 weeks. Milked 300 cows a day. Your friends are right.
I've been told that sheep are even dumber, but I can't believe how they could be and still remember to breathe.

Maybe I'm calling you an equine of some sort... Or maybe not!

Those particular equines are supposed to be smarter than horses. My sister has a mini, and she's the boss of the barnyard! (Before anyone asks whether I mean my sister or the miniature donkey, it probably goes: my sister, the donkey, then everyone else.)
