Ahhh much better song to have stuck in my head. Do you remember when musicians could actually sing and play instruments? It won't be long before computers sing everything. Everything was better back in my day! Get off my lawn!

74 degrees, mostly sunny.

Herfing A Hoyo de Monterrey natural Churchill listening to a Joe Rogan podcast with my dog on the deck.

Some quality hammock time. Any hammock time after Labor Day is a bonus.

I remember "discovering" them in late '73 when I first heard "Keep Your Head to the Sky". Their vocals were terrific! When "Open Our Eyes" was released, we used to play that album all the time in the store. Lotta people hadn't heard of them so they were "discovering" them too. Also loved their vocals on Ramsey Lewis' "Sun Goddess".

Watched a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral 50 miles away again tonight- from my driveway. Brilliant orange flame with blue and then almost a rainbow-effect. Lasted about 1.5 minutes until we couldn't see it anymore. Didn't see any boosters falling off, which is strange given how clear the sky was and how bright the flame was. Rare to have such cooperative lack of cloud-cover this time of year.

I miss that. Sometimes I could space see shuttle launches from Tampa. I was on base once during an Atlas launch because I was doing consulting work at NASA. The Columbia was on the launch pad. It was the mission where it disintegrated on reentry. As a kid I was on base for Apollo 17. I should try to get down to Vandenberg.

Amazing! If it was the space-x launch I saw on the news, it was a single stick, no boosters. News said they went to a very high orbit, 357 miles, well above ISS and Hubble.

🍹'THRISTY THURSDAY' 🍹... just waiting for the rain 🌧️

Breathing is better today. Just reading CIGAR Aficionado (98 issue) a good interview with Carlos Fuentes Jr. the Kennedy Mystique, Last Resorts (about old golf courses in the south).

Weather here in sunny SoCal is beautiful. 78 degrees at noon with 40% humidity. High of 83 predicted.

A cigar and a beer on the patio might be in order.

Sitting here on the couch watching tv with my wife, still trying to get the sound from the sound bar to synch with whoever is speaking on the screen. Can't adjust the lip synch to correct the problem (I can only delay sound, not accelerate it). Switched boxes and swapped out HDMI cords and that didn't help. Got to see if hooking-up sound bar alone to another tv with a different type of box to see if the problem replicates. If it does, I think it's the sound bar, not the TV or the box.

I had that problem with our old Cable box, TV and sound system. When I connected the sound system with the fiber optic cable instead of HDMI and it worked.

Time for bed. Up again in like 4 hrs. Figure a pot of coffee will spark me while doing homework.. then a cat nap.. then off to the circus for 2:00-11:00

Been doing the shipping/receiving/stocking thing at the circus for the past few days. Doing runt work and gtting my feet wet on that end of things. I'd have to say, Wally World has a pretty good system in place for logistics and supply chain management. Most of the hiccups and pot holes that I see are on the execution side of things.

Most of the stock is held on the floor rather than the back warehouse. In my store the warehouse is about 10% (or less) of the total building. Most of the warehouse (back room) just holds overstock that cant get onto the shelves or is waiting to get onto the shelves. You want the products on the floor so a customer buys it,

Getting stuff off the trucks and onto the floor is very manually intensive. We have three **** stocking the shelves but not enough bodies to (in my opinion) keep the flow going from the back room and onto the main floor.

I've been working the paper and "chemicals" sections: Garbage bags, sandwich bags, freezer bags, paper plates... Cleaning products (kitchen and bath crap), laundry products (holy $hit there are a ton of different laundry soaps). You'd be amazed on how must of this stuff we go through on a single day.

Pet peeve: the (franking) Glade and AirWick (franking) room deodorizer crap... another WTF do we need so many (franking) sent oils and $hit... Just standardize it... Pick one: Glade, Air Wick, Fabreze, WalMart version. Then offer only like 10 flavors. Do we really need 35 different smells (no exaggeration) from 5 different brands? In a single, a two pack, four pack, eight pack... These things will be the bane of my existence....

...along with the 92.8 different sponges. Franking WalMart brand, 3M, ScotchBrite, O-Cedar, Scrub Daddy... small sponges, large sponges... Each one is different and each one comes in a single, two pack, 4 pack, 8 pack. Then some are just plain rectangles, some are form fit to your hand. Does it really matter? Since we are on the topic... SOS pads.. store brand or SOS. Pink or blue... WTF?


Rant over:
One area that I see off the bat is lack of equipment. Everyone stocking should have handheld scanners, but they are in short supply. With the scanners (about the size of a cell phone) you can scan the UPC bar code on any item and it will tell you exactly what aisle, what shelf, and where on the shelf where that item belongs. If you don't have a scanner, you have to rely on experience from people familiar with where things go or (for a newbie) go on a treasure hunt to figure out where it goes. Sometimes locations change - seasonal items get moved around and standard items get bumped to a different place to make way for the seasonal stuff.

Having a scanner to use will help the stock person (newbie or oldie) find where an item belongs on the shelves. It can easily cut the stocking time in by about 25%.
