About a week ago, my boss stopped by to let me know that we would probably be auditing the newest company that we will be subcontracting with. If/when that happens, he is going to send me along with the auditor. The subcon is in Taiwan which m... Read more

I checked out the book "You: The Owner's Manual" by Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen. It is very thick and I do not have the time (nor the desire) to read the whole thing. My plan was to read the book and figure out what happens inside your body when you... Read more

I've decided I want to get a heart rate monitor. I want one that will monitor my heart rate (duh!) and estimate my calorie burn. I hear that one that straps around your chest is better, but am not married to the idea. I like the idea of the w... Read more

I am not a morning person. Never have been. It's just not in my genetic makeup. Although, if you talked to my parents, they would shake their heads in disbelief that "their" daughter could sleep until noon or later (if they would let her!). ... Read more

My Boise State Broncos kicked some serious butt tonight! They played the Virginia Tech Hokies, a very good, highly ranked team. BSU came out strong and were quickly up 17 - 0! Then, things went awry. VA came back and scored...and scored...an... Read more
