A Special Hello to Wiley, Rein & Fielding

A special hello to Wiley, Rein, and Fielding who still visit my blog. Today someone at WRF actually Googled me by name. W00T! I’m sure they know they’re leaving digital footprints that are recorded. One would hope so, but judging from their high quality research in their first Nucor filing, perhaps not. I think Nucor […]

The Return of Alan Price — and more on Kenny

For those of you who wanted to find Kenny Hill, I only remember his icon was ‘red’ and he was from Detroit, Michigan. He’s blocked so I can’t see him. But it’s “Kenny Hill” if you want to look him up. Yo! Kenny! Speak up, I’m sure you’d like to share your side of the […]

One Day Down

Today was a busy, busy day. Sleep? I do not understand this word and wish someone would explain it to me. The day started with our first meeting at 830 am and we moved it to another venue due to crowds but were done in by service. I got a really, really, really awesome gift […]

Hello There

First, a special ‘hello’ to Nucor Steel’s corporate office in Charlotte who’ve made several visits to my blog in the past few days. Guys, you know I actually check my logs, right? I’m not looking for you specifically, but I do see you – you folks leave a large digital fingerprint every time you visit. […]


Today my experience that all women are clinically insane on some level was confirmed. I will not relate the story, but must point out banging your head on a concrete wall is far more productive than trying to understand women. I know it’s a cliche, I know it’s dinosaur-era thought, but it’s still true. So […]

Kiss Alive 35 Concert Review, Nucor (Brief), and Announcements

Disc versus Disk. I covered this in my blog well over a year ago (see here) and now none other than Apple Computer has weighed in on the same subject. They pretty much mirror my explanation with one notable exception. Nice to know they agree with me. I want to plug this post called 121 […]

Zagat (and Nucor, etc.)

First, I spent nearly an hour voting on the Zagat airline survey. Then, the survey crashed eating all my votes. I’m really, really, really pissed off. I won’t do it again. I had given Virgin Atlantic top marks with DL and CO next, followed by Dragonair, BA, AC, AF, Air China, China Southern, with AA […]

Why am I up at 348am?

OK, it’s 452am as I start this post, because beforehand I checked my credit card receipts against my statements,  made a post over at the Panthers Hockey Message Boards,   filed my medical receipts for the week,  had a drink of water (twice 4x),  turned on the TV looking for something and found the last […]

A busy day

First up, an update on the Nucor saga. Next week our State Representative is coming to have meeting with me at our office to see what we’re about, why our industry is upset, and then to decide how involved he may get. I’m working on a presentation — I’m missing that laptop right now, let […]

Disturbing Stuff and Other Stuff :)

My blog started 17 October 2004. That is five years ago almost. I’ve never restricted access to my blog. Until today. There has been some very unusual activity coming from a very specific IP address. That IP address has been blocked. I won’t share the IP but I’m sure the person will figure out he/she […]
