Had an interesting time this morning visiting a radio station as part of my new job training.


A good first day at a new job

Monday, November 02, 2009

Started a new work assignment with the American Red Cross of South-Central Michigan. I am now their Community Relations Coordinator. Off to a good start, I thought. It will be educational and fun!

Trunk 'r Treat

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Several people have asked me what a Trunk 'r Treat is. I guess they must have started about 20 or 30 years ago because of the danger of having kids going door to door to get candy. Well, a Trunk 'r Treat is an organized event held mainly in a parking lot - could be at a church, a YMCA, a fairgrounds, etc. Known participants park their cars / vans/ firetrucks / ambulances / police cars in rows and hand out candy (from their trunks) to costumed kids as they parade by. The cars may be decorated, and the people handing out the candy may be costumed, too. Sometimes sound effects may be included, and parents (often also in costumes) usually accompany their children. Then there is usually some sort of "Witches Kitchen" - or nearby church social hall - where refreshments such as hot dogs and hot chocolate are handed out as well. It's basically a really big Halloween party, and lots of fun.

Going out for dinner again tonight

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Tonight will be a catered event, and there won't be menu choices. However it will be a buffet line, so I can at least select my own serving size. And at the social hour after church, I ate dessert for lunch, so I can manage without it tonight. Sigh ... .

    Eat something healthy and filling before you go and drink a large glass of water when you get there. That might help you make wiser choices and keep portions in control :0)
