Is this the Akwesasne casino in New York? I've spent more time there than I care to admit. Unsure if it's a Radisson, just going your demographic of being in the north east. I've never paid attention to the surroundings enough to know if there's an airport nearby

first question immediately after i finish saying all of that:
"but, then what do i do with the yellow wire?"

this morning, i held a mini-seminar on how to strap a ladder to the ladder rack of the work van specifically so that it would not end up in traffic on the highway.

before i left the jobsite tonight, i had them strap the ladders up.
it was like the morning never happened. they looked shocked when i reached up, and pulled the 'strapped' ladder off the rack and re-explained how that's not supposed to happen unless they want to talk to highway patrol.
The thing that bothers me is when a company is insistent on calling your working group a team. They hold events specifically labeled as "team-building" events. They work towards having you basically dependent on your teammates.

And then said teammates are so wrapped up in their egos or self-competition or just plain soloists (if that's even an apt way to describe them) that they can't be arsed to work with you when you're having trouble. It's aggravating and kinda mind-boggling.

I think in most cases if your working group is referred to as a team, then there's a reason, which winds up being that a lot of the work the "team" is given will be work that, to be done properly, needs more than one mind to solve.

I had my issues with my team at my previous job, but for the most part everyone on it was pretty good about having each other's backs and making sure slack was picked up. It's crazy but I actually miss it, lol.

Heh, it's possible. Won't know more till I meet (or call I guess) this manager and learn about the team, because the dumb listing just has a super generic org label and searching the internal wiki for that label is useless.

But, if I am about to start writing code for robot cars? Yep, God help us all.

Nah I'm in Green Bay, WI it's an Iroquois casino called Oneida. Most of these small native casinos have a similar look though.

This week I found a local beer that isn't an IPA or ale. Nice lager.

I hate that about OR. Hard to find anything good that isn't an IPA that taste like they squeezed the juice from 100 pinecones into it.

I can't wait for winter to be over. I really hate cold weather. I miss car meets, driving with the windows down, washing and waxing the car and then just admiring the finished work. I need to move out of this state, could be way worse, but it just sucks.

I like having 4 seasons. I wish we got actual snow down to the valley floor this year, nothing yet. Just buckets of rain.

I used to like having winter, I'm more of a short and shirt type of person. But over the years of doing cold weather training with the Army I just dreaded every winter because I knew it mean camping and freezing my nuts off in VT. Pplus I hate getting shocked at my house every 5 minutes because of layers of clothes and touching handles and what not.

They said we were going to have a bad winter, but so far this winter has been pretty mild. It has snowed a couple times, but gone by the afternoon except in the shadows. This is our second winter here and I have yet to use the snow shovel I bought, or the salt.

Well that blows, I was lucky that every car meet that either I organized or I went to, people followed rules and what not. Even attended Broke. East which was amazing.
