Hello Monday! I hope everybody had a good weekend. The weather here in Enola was warm and dry while severe thunderstorms battered the area around my little suburb. Because of this, I had to drag out the hose last evening and water my plants. No rain is scheduled in the foreseeable future. It's almost as if we're heading into the dog days of summer without the heat.

One of the higher-ups in our region is in a world of shit. We were told there was an install promotion going on for vinyl and laminate surfaces, and signs were posted. A number of measures were done before it was discovered our store was not included. As a result, because people are now buying those installations, our store is having to do some major markdowns. The kind that curdle the blood of any accountant looking at our books. This type of mistake brings out the worst in customers.
Here's a bit of hilarity. Evidently production of the new Barbie movie had some trouble getting enough of the right color pink. If you've seen the trailer, you will realize how much pink there is in the movie. If you haven't, well, here it is. I think this movie is going to be a blast.
And here's a little bit of the NYT: Ad revenue for Twitter is down 59% from last year. I don't know about you, but I find that fascinating. This is how Elon Musk learns how pricey his opinion of what constitutes free speech is going to be. Oh, and advertisers are not flocking back. They are taking their revenue elsewhere. Of course, Elon doesn't understand how far his ego has led him astray. Instead of changing course, he's going to continue down the same path, Everyone is learning that even though Elon sold the idea to the world that he's a smart man, in real time it turns out he's dumb as a box of rocks.
