I purchased a lot of part number OM99023 from OfficeMax and was unable to find a suitable template for printing. So I made one myself. Here it is to download.
Don't print Page 2, and you should test/tweak it to your needs before printing
We use these three-hole tabs for marketing purposes in large-ish customer presentations. Index dividers or binders tabs, whatever you call them - they make a HUGE difference in presentations. Some more keywords associated with these are gold mylar reinforced, eight (8) multicolor tabs, buff sheets and three (3) sets.
I saw an advertisement for an African safari. Right now I have zero interest in ever going on a safari. Sounds boring and hot.
That being said, I see a lot of wildlife outside of my window (our office building is next to a wooded area). Birds like robins, cardinals, finches and bluejays are daily visitors within a few feet of my desk. A few times each week I will see a rabbit in the morning, but today I saw a baby rabbit! It is truly Spring.
Not like I follow American Idol, but did you see that tall crazy guy? He is great - an A+ human - and reminded me of Adam Winck from college.
I had steamed hashbrowns at Waffle House for the second time this morning. Undecided - they are lots healthier but terribly bland.
The amount of marketing that our little company does is really impressive. It keeps me busy (but obviously not busy enough if I can blog right now, right?).
I got my new Symphony 2.2 kite and it is really great. Flew it on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of last week. She needs consistent wind to stay up - but the pull is like a pit bull dog. Lots of fun and really scientific.
My little sister graduated from high school last week. She was Class President and got to tell all of the students to change their tassels. Such a proud moment for the Gray Family - our little tassel turner. She and her girlfriends went to Walt Disney World in Orlando for their senior trip.
Emily and I are going to see Zach, Ricky, Josh, Jake et al. in NYC from June 8th - 12th. Any suggestions on what we should do? It is her first time in the city. I've never been to the Statue of Liberty.
I wrote some new book reviews on Amazon, you can read them here. This is a quote from Ogilvy on Advertising -
Cosimo de Medici persuaded Benvenuto Ceillini, the Florentine sculptor, to enter his service by writing him a letter which concluded, 'Come, I will choke you with gold.'
One more quote from that great book -
PERFECTIONISM is spelled PARALYSIS - Winston Churchill
It is pretty expensive to get a microwave inside of a business jet. You could buy one from Wal-Mart, but it would cost a lot to certify it.
A commercial off-the-shelf microwave may sell for $99 at the local Sears. But by the time the item has been put through the entire program required by the FAA certification- burn, environmental, vibration, crash, altitude, even fugus testing- the cost might be in the $40,000 range.
Whew! Busy week. I'm feeling great. My goal is to be able to work 12-hour days like it is nothing. Oh! Tomorrow I get nice big stunt kite. I literally cannot stop thinking about kites. It is so windy here right now. Should be good weekend fun. Pray I don't fly away - the kite is taller than me!

Nice airplanes have to be stored in large warehouses called hangars. These hangars are usually heated during the winter.
Each time an aircraft enters or leaves the hangar, the large hangar door must be opened to the cold outdoors, thus releasing all of the warm air inside. It can cost up
to $10,000 just to open the door!
Hundreds and thousands of hangar doors are opened every day.
Including file extensions within your file name is NOT redundant. In fact, it helps make life easier. For example, "Customer Pricing - PDF.pdf" and "Dealer Pricing - Excel File.xls" are good nomenclature.
Your most important files should ALWAYS begin with the number '1', or a series of 1s. For added emphasis, add urgent-sounding words after the numerals.
For desktop folders that you will only use, its OK to get a little personal sometimes.

I forgot to mention that I went power snorkeling in Cozumel, Mexico earlier this month. We used a Seadoo Seascooter - they are totally awesome. The battery lasts for about 45 minutes of continuous use, and you can use the Seascooter to help you power-dive. Mostly we used it for surface transportation to get from reef to reef - I found that my attempts to power-dive were better au natural. Retail cost is around US$600.
"How embarrassed I'd been if you knew what I was thinking" is a line I like from the song "Desperate Guys" by The Faint (via ZAK). Shady? Probably.
We're hiring again at work! Things are really moving quick now and we're making serious progress. I love the feeling of getting LOTS OF STUFF done every day. Even though we have been in business for seven years (and selling product for five years) it is still very much a start-up company.
