Yesterday I was able to participate along with Morris Partee, Trey Reeme, Robbie Wright and Fred Brown on the CUWaterCooler internet radio show. The one and only problem was it was too short! We just seemed to get going and time ran out. We had some interesting discussions surrounding a variety of topics. Hit the site to hear the session. Congratulations to Matt Davis for starting the project. It is a winner!
Yesterday I was out and about and purchased a gift for the staff. This last year, 2009, has been a little stressful with the economic conditions and redefining some of our jobs. We’ve worked pretty hard, have met or exceeded our targets and are all looking forward to next Saturday’s Christmas party down at the Granville Island Hotel. So what can you do for staff that never seem to take their coffee breaks and are always giving 110%? Buy them a deluxe Royal Professional Saeco Espresso/Cappuccino machine. So far today everyone has had at least one very enjoyable cup. The downside in this is Starbuck’s, they won’t be seeing us very often. And someone said it would be really nice to be able to offer our members a fresh Cappuccino when we are sitting down discussing something with them. That is exactly what I mean about the people who work here — they are always thinking about the members.
