Packing is a skill that can be mastered in one simple lesson.

Pack on Paper. Write a list of all the things you are planning to take, and add and subtract and amend, until you have a refined list, that you use when you actually pack your bag...the night before leaving.

That is the formula I use for packing for travel. I travel frequently, and now there is a list added to my Diary, so often I don't ned to create a new list, I simply use the standard one.

The Basic List incudes: toiletries, footwear, formal clothing, casual clothing, camera, laptop, and books.

I guess this is a part two from when I wrote about The Californian on Wilshire a few months back. http://www.broowaha.com/article.php?id=2311

The situation hasn't really improved much. Actually, it's gotten worse. Most of the good employees quit or were fired. They were fired for something stupid and it's best not to go into detail about it because it's unnecessary drama that shouldn't have happened to begin with. When the employee(s) were dismissed or left on their own will, the management takes their sweet time in finding a replacement. So do you know what that means? It means that... Read More

It took long enough and a trip to another website where people meet and discuss the topics of the day but I have finally pushed a liberal to reveal her true nature. When a liberal finds him or herself staring straight into the unvarnished and irrefutable truth, the result is a response much like the following which will be laden with profanity and name-calling. This person took it upon herself to “cop a ‘tude” and proceed to tell me all about myself. Of course, what posts such as the following reveal is that this is a person who is seriously lacking in any kind of education or other social... Read More

“I’m sorry, I don’t work on personal PC’s. It’s nothing personal, I promise”.

Have you ever heard these words come from the lips of your company’s in house IT guy? Have you ever asked and been rebuffed? Well don’t fret. Rest assured dear user, it really isn’t personal. A lot of us computer guys just don’t work on personal PC’s.

“But why not?” you ask. A computer is a computer right? If it’s broke you can certainly fix it and maybe make a little money on the side. It shouldn’t take you long, you’re an expert.

As tempting as tax free money on the side sounds, it usually just... Read More

Bullshit in Washington still stinks. Well is this new book “What Happened” by Scott McClellan. Is not anything we and journalist (if there are any left) don’t know. This book is just skimming the surface and yet the White House pretends to be so distraught. It is all so bogus.

He was called a coward and yes maybe, but is he any worse than the rest of us? How many other news agencies had this same info and kept quiet, for fear of corporate /gov’t retribution.

Well anyone who has been in corporate America, knows just how things are done. Truth is on the down low. Words are used... Read More

"Let's go in", she says."To the scary Mexican Bar?""Yes"

12am. We're standing outside Carlos', the perpetually raucous Mexican bar/discotheque next to 24th st BART. She must be drunker than I thought. Or maybe just too new. Having moved here from London five days ago, she hasn't yet realized that the many Mexican bars dotting the Mission—most so authentic their interiors are sovereign Mexican territory—are strictly off limits. Heavily guarded fortresses on the front lines of a red hot culture war between the Mission's indigenous Mexican culture and the invading hipster hoards (aka us).... Read More

Flashback 1983: An urban school: Thirty or more children sat attentively in precise rows; walls were decorated with Spelling Awards adorned with Scratch-n-Sniff stickers (Mmmmmm skunk). Armed with basic credentials, teachers marched in with a passion to teach that outweighed any advanced degree. Typical assignments consisted of tissue paper Mexicos, celebratory pen-pal letters attached to balloons, and the quintessential state reports culminated with a potluck of the regions' native foods. Traveling to field trips in the back of the teacher's Datsun replaced any memory of where the field... Read More
