Afternoon gents.  Just finished 5 depositions today.  They were short, but it's still a whipping.  Just when you get rolling your done, then a break, then you have to start all over again with the minutiae.  Hope everyone is staying warm and safe.
 
 
5? that sounds like a pretty productive day!!!  Think you'll wrap things up early?


Doesn't look that way.  Still here, but leaving soon.  Taking the show on the road - more work to do when I get home.  At least there's Weller 12yo at the casa.
 
You get into that too heavily and you'll be apologizing to the boss again...  Hippie

COLLLLD!!!!......... Single digits again this morning with sub-zero windchill.
Was a little surprised this morning to be met with about an inch of fresh snow...  The weather stations all said it didn't happen but I have evidence to the contrary... Loco

Will be windy and 56F today. You know what that means, High fire danger. There were fires scatered all over yesterday. One burned a mile N of the office It took out 2 structures. Then Friday, Ta da another plunge. Best part is a 20% chance for precipitation. Of course that is 80% of no precipitation. Rain Snow or Ice any type of mosture would be nice.

Any type of moisture would be good. Starting the year with this deficit and it should be the wet season. I does not look good for this spring. April with the wind is the worst wildfire danger around here.

Well if that don't beat all...
 
Got finish with a visit from my Engineering manager.  Although we at CDIY (DeWalt) had a banner yeaer and broke all sales records it seems our greedy mergers and acquisitions obsessed CEO and team "F"ed up to the tune of 130 million on one of their acquisitions.... 
 
So what does this mean? you might ask....
 
They just froze all hiring, promotions, raises and capital expenditures for 6 months....
I now have to ask permission to buy thing over $150 no matter how mission critical...Loco
 
  I have been afraid of this since the merger....  Stanley across all their business units are barely profittable running a lowly 2-4% margin...  Dewalt 2013 margin was 15%.  Stanley management has been continueously changing our structure to emulate theirs' and severely running up our overheads.  They have increased the management team by over 20%, tripled the size of the accounting department and gone from division based budgets and accounting to individual accounts for every single Project Engineer!  micro-management at its best and we still turned a 15% profit.  Now we have to take up the slack for their micro-management as well as their mis-management.
 
Never let a weaker company take charge of a stronger one.....it's a BAD recipe!!!

Yeah, too be sure. Too many bean counters is what screwed up (partially) my Dismal career.
