But, but...I thought those courses WERE work? See, you were working before you were there! Just so long as you didn't show up at the office in jammies...

In Mass. emergency personnel HAVE to respond to every call. That is the law! Almost every town and city in this state has 911E. The "E" stands for "Enhanced." It means as soon as their phone rings, the home owner's address shows up on their screen. But only if you have a land line. They can switch screens and see who lives in the home also. If one of the occupants has an arrest record, the information shows up "RED" on their screen. Then certain licensed 911 operators can switch to another screen to see if this family has a history of violence in the home. Then regardless of what the emergency is for, they will send more than one police vehicle along with other needed equipment.

How do I know all this? Because I have been trained and certified as a 911 and 911E operator. I also worked for a company that developed and installs the software for both programs.

When they were rehabbing this building, the front door of the school was located on Moore Street. They moved the door around the corner to another street. But the legal address remained the same. What used to be the front door is now a two story plate glass window in my small room with three steps leading up to it. I can't tell you how many times the ambulance, fire and police have walked up the steps to my window.

For those who work in this part of Boston on a regular basis, they now know where the front door is located. I no longer have to stand in the window and point to around the corner.

I'm recuperating after a trip to Costco. The trip to Costco was after meeting dragnlaw for lunch. I really enjoyed meeting her. We went to an Indian market afterwards. CWS will know which one we went to. They were still selling "guva".

I think I'll go back to doing what I was doing before I logged into DC to goof off. I'll be busy with a very serious and important job for a while. What is that? Why scratching my cat, of course!

My SIL stopped by with a big helping of eggplant parm for me. Of course you know it was a bribe for me to do his resume. I seem to be the keeper of family documents in the computer.

I think my daughter is going to have to quit work. She is not handling it all very well. It is just too stressful for her. So he is going to come out of retirement so he can earn more money.

Bea, I don't think I have a lock that needs a master key... or vice versa.
I had another key made this morning and that one works in all my doors, so I have no clue what's up with that other key.

It's probably a case of the devil is in the details. It might not be filed quite enough or one notch may be off by just a teensy bit. Last keys I had made wouldn't work at all even though they looked identical. The locksmith filed them a bit and now they work fine.

Hah! I wish, nope on my own time. I don't need any hours anyway, have them all for the year already, but no problem, I read the articles and lessons, may as well take the tests.

Yes, probably one pin or notch that's off just enough...
