Late February 2007 I’ll be in Europe. I will update as the details are solidified.
A tree trimming company hired by the power company to trim the trees away from the power lines on Fremont Ave came by today. Not a big deal. My colleague watched them just outside his window and told me the following:
Thursday 21 December
- 9:00am Men Arrived and asked to have a car moved. Car was moved in 1 minute
- 10:25 am Men position truck and start work.
- 11:25 am Men leave for lunch
- 1:00 pm Men position truck and continue trimming tree
- 2:00 pm Men clean up and leave.
Work accomplished: 2 trees trimmed.
Work to still left to complete job on property: 1 tree.
Wow – nothing like a full days work. I imagine we are paying for this type of work ethic and giterdone attitude via our fees.
It saddens me to see such half assness.
We updated the look and feel as well as some key features of BnA Travel Gear section today.
Check a product page: for example this Eagle Creek 5 piece adapter set. We have the beginnings of a comparison shopper on the site. Check it just below the fold – the product on a few different vendor sites with prices. For us, this is pretty hot being able to dream it an execute on it. Congrats to all involved on it on getting it done.
Happy Christmas and Merry Channukah!
I’m 33 years old and will be 34 in another month. In November ’98 when I got what became BnA started with Moreth I was 25. Ugh…I thought Nick was old at the time (he was 35 at the time). Anyway….
The BnA party was awesome this year. We scaled back from the 300+ person party we had in ’05 and didn’t invite as many folks this year. About 150+ folks showed up and downed 2 kegs, 3 cases of wine and an unknown amount of mixed drinks. I got to talk to more BnA travelers this year. Last year was fun, but just chaotic enough to not be able to talk to anyone for more than 1/2 a minute. This year I got to talk to loads of folks who just recently traveled RTW or are about to go. Next year we’ll ramp it up again with a game and prizes hopefully.
South Africa Logue is back with a new writer. Philip B (not Blazdell – wonder how he is doing now that I mention it) is the new writer. I met him on my trip back to Cape Town back in January of 2006. Seems like ages ago.
Check out his piece on Sharks. He has a good attitude and loves South Africa. Just what you want from your online travel guide, eh?
Another post coming soon with my impressions and sharing about some of the awesome folks I met this past weekend from the BnA party.
