Yesterday turned out to be quite the nice day. The temps only climbed to a comfortable 82 (F) and there was a bit of a breeze to help dry out all of the rain. That was a lot different then the forecast, which had been calling for a 60% chance of rain. In fact, for the next few days they're forecasting no rain. In the 'what used to be normal' summer weather, July and August were dry and sunny. The pattern changed last year, and so far this year the change seems to be holding.
And I do get to go back to work today. Not surprisingly, I'm not 'a flutter' with excitement. A return means having to call customers and dealing with issues. That's one thing you can bet on, issues have cropped up. Being forced to provide outstanding customer service to people who don't always deserve it is a real pain in the ass. I really do wish we'd just start saying 'no' to the entitlement so many feel. People are not as special as they believe.
I've found the reactions of people to Bezo's trip to the edge of space fascinating. Quite a lot of chatter is going on about New Shepherd, his rather phallic looking rocket. Let's be honest here, rockets, in general are phallic, Jeff just added a little pizazz to his. Let's be honest, it does look quite a bit like a billionaires sex toy, and I'm willing to bet Jeff was feeling some really strong 'good vibrations' on his 11 minute ride.
