Enjoy the weather

Mid 70s yesterday, suppose to be the same today, with a small chance of rain. If you can get out of the office, go have some fun.



The Tigers baseball team won their district opener at West Mesquite 10-0 last night. Great start to district play. They have one more tournament that starts tomorrow in Rockwall before their first home game next Tuesday against Mabank.
I think everyone knows the US Census takes place this year. Its been all over the television, ten questions, 10 minutes. Why is it necessary for them to send out a letter this week letting us know that next week we will be getting the Census form in the mail? Whats the cost of that? Couldn't they at least send a bulk rate post card? Oh well, its not like its my money.........oh wait, it is.

I wondered the same thing about the notification letter. Apparently research shows the advance notification boosts mail-back rates, and every one percent increase in response saves taxpayers 85 million in additional costs that would be incurred trying to get the info... Who knew?

Jim, you are wise beyond your years.

Maybe the rest of the government is trying to help out the Post Office...you noticed, I assume, that when the Post Office went "private" it started losing money and now wants to provide fewer services.

Ah, capitalism.

Looks like this youngster is enjoying your nice weather! Unless he falls on his keister, of course, and then he has a problem...
