Work and Charity

It was an early call for me today, 6:00 a.m., as I had our now biweekly finance council meetings for the church. We're trying to implement purchasing procedures and prioritizing repairs to be made. It's been the most beneficial work we've done as a committee and we seem to be clicking. I ALMOST don't mind getting up so early.

After a mid-morning nap and a conference call with lawyers, I had a networking luncheon with a banker. I could clearly hear the review this banker had from her supervisor: "Our goal is $x million in new loans and you didn't meet last year's goal. You need to network more!" As far as easy people to network with go, I'm a sales person's dream. I may not provide a ton of business, but if you're looking to go through the motions, I'm your man!! :-) That said, I actually DID refer her some business early last year.

Catfish, acorn squash and potatoes for dinner tonight. Mmmmmmmm.

Things I'm grateful for:
#73 Steve Sabol's football films including the Super Bowl highlights that he and his father were in charge of shooting and which they edited. It's great to see the footage of Super Bowls past.
#74 Pretzels. Baked bread with salt.....but I love them so.
#75 Electricity. Damn, it really makes life easier.
