My wife made this awesome cake. There is going to be 10 9 year old girls in the house for my daughter’s birthday party here in an hour. Pray to whatever gods you worship for my sanity.

I cut the shape since scouts can’t use power saws, but she sanded and painted it, smoothed the axles and wheels, put in the weights and tail. I mounted the wheels to the car.…

This Is Good This Is Good

They showed this video during our company leadership meeting yesterday. We are a big multinational business with all kinds of people in our workforce. We serve the entire spectrum of humanity in our customer base. It was one of the best examples of diversity and inclusion that I have seen.
