Today is my last day at my Thinkwrap. I leave with happy tears in my eyes, moments I will treasure, abundant joy in heart and gratitude I can't fully express. If ever I could recommend a workplace that you should at least experience, this might just be it.
There is something about ignorance being bliss that people like. I'm not sure what it is really but this idea that out of sight, out of mind allows a lot of people slack off on issues that can literally change their geography for lack of knowledge.

It was Father's Day weekend last weekend so before go on, Happy father's day to all dads everywhere. I believe fathers, in the eyes of their children, are the first example of what men are like.
