200 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, California - (760) 864-9293
Perfect for missed deadlines, natural disasters, and for the onset of any crisis where you need an extra moment to think, just before screaming. This new feature should come in handy this morning and for most of today. I'm expecting another long weekend handling a new crisis. We'll see how the day goes....wish me luck.

So if you know Todd, then remind him that it's "Kick Butts Day"
and if you don't know Todd, and you smoke...why not consider quitting???
This falls under the "OH WHY NOT" category:
And one other note. While I was searching for the correct spelling of gluteus maximus so I would sound terribly clever, I came across the definition from wikipedia:
The gluteus maximus is the largest and most superficial of the three gluteal muscles. It makes up a large portion of the shape and appearance of the buttocks. It is a broad and thick fleshy mass of a quadrilateral shape, and forms the prominence of the nates. Its large size is one of the most characteristic features of the muscular system in humans, connected as it is with the power of maintaining the trunk in the erect posture.
The muscle is remarkably coarse in structure, being made up of fasciculi lying parallel with one another and collected together into large bundles separated by fibrous septa.

Thanks to djbenwu for passing it along...
PULLMAN, Washington (AP) -- A man was charged with theft and burglary after police said they found 93 pounds of women's panties, brassieres and other underwear at his home.
Investigators believe Garth M. Flaherty, 24, took as many as 1,500 undergarments from apartment complex laundry rooms before he was caught, police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said.
A man was seen taking underwear from two laundry rooms Saturday, a witness recorded his license number, and Flaherty was identified from photographs, Tennant said.
Police found enough underwear in his bedroom to fill five garbage bags, Tennant said.
"He said he had a problem," Tennant said.
Flaherty has been jailed on 12 counts of second-degree burglary and one of first-degree theft.
Police had previously received 12 reports of underwear thefts in the northeast part of town, where Washington State University is located.
"We were kind of concerned about how to match up bras and panties with victims," Tennant said. "Based on the unique descriptions from a couple of women, we can tie him to those thefts."
The underwear will be held as evidence until the case is resolved, after which their disposition is uncertain, Tennant said.
"Would you really want them back?" he asked. "I would say not."

No one answered until little Mary stood up, angry, and said, "You should not be asking 6th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal, who will then fire you!" With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.
Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, "Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?" Little Mary's mouth fell open; then she said to those around her, "Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!"
The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class, "Anybody?" Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, "The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye."
Mrs. Parks said, "Very good, Billy," then turned to Mary and continued, "As for you, young lady, I have three things to say:One, you have a dirty mind, two, you didn't read your homework assignment, and three, one day you are going to be very, very disappointed."

above: A Beauty & Bikini Contest at the Palm Springs Racquet Club in 1963 attracted it's share of sexy, scantily-clad bikini chicks. They were long-legged lovelies competing for a free dinner, no doubt!
Sharon Lawrence (left) was host and emcee, Carol Burnett (right) presented an award to Frank Gehry. Lauren Hutton, presented an award to Dennis Hopper. The evening ended with the extraordinary talents of singer/dancer Maurice Hines, who was the main entertainment.

Lucky for me, I work with a talented group of people who help keep things moving. We managed to get a lot of the recall stuff organized and ready for an update meeting. I was busy pulling together information for the website, the company blog, and several internal memos. I always try to do too much myself. I'm always multi-tasking and doing five things at once....I really need to slow it down...one of these days anyway.
If you are concerned about the pet food recall thats all over the news, first let me say that DRY PET FOOD IS SAFE! The recall is only on certain wet food products. We have everything updated on www.petco.com including the details by brand, with the "best by date" and production codes for you to check out by product.

#1 Ernst Stavro Blofeld: You Only Live Twice. That scar, that cat...the sinister volcano cave...he was very convincing yet a tinge of camp. Loved the pirhana fish he used to kill people.
#2 Ernst Stavro Blofeld: Diamonds Are Forever. Over the top and camp as can be, this guy made an impact on me at an early age and I always liked him for some reason. Maybe it was the fact that he had several body doubles...or that cigarette holder...or was it when he disguised himself in drag and walked out of the casino unnoticed...
#7 Mr Big: Live and Let Die. He was street tough, but this dude was smart. Evil genius drug lord who ruled over pimps, gangs and poppy fields in the Caribbean. Great scene when he pulled off the rubber mask having been his alter ego "Dr Kananga". This guy was so slick, he had his own psychic Tarot card reader on hand at all times.
