full circleEarly in June, I took a #10 Western Avenue bus downtown, then a #18 bus to Delmar to see my podiatrist at 8:20. When I caught another #18 bus to go to my doctor’s office to get a shingles vaccine, it was the same driver; not really a great surprise.

I took another #18 bus back to Albany with another driver. That same driver, about 15 minutes later, then took me out to Corporate frickin’ Woods, the #737, which I did find interesting.

As I may have mentioned, this past 109 months is the second time I’ve worked at CfW, the first time at Blue Cross/Blue Shield for 13 months in 1989-1990. The return there in 2006 did not make me happy. At all.

I don’t think I have. I did this with states – I came up with Vermont – but not countries.

Part of the problem is that I’m just lousy with languages, so it’d have to be a country where a lot of people speak English.

The default answer for a lot of Americans is Canada. Read the rest of this entry »

“Each week, TIME Magazine designs covers for four markets: the U.S., Europe, Asia and the South Pacific.” Often, America’s cover is quite, well โ€“ different. I had noticed this before. I don’t know that it’s “stunning,” but it IS telling.

Here’s an easy question, or maybe not. How many times have you moved? I recall my Internet buddy Amy noting that she lost track after she moved 30 times. I’m in the same situation.

Oddly, after moving from upstairs to downstairs in the same house when I was about six months old, I spent the next 18 years at the same address. Read the rest of this entry »
