  Interesting  twist on something we don’t talk about enough – who is really right?

Customers sometimes forget we do have the right to choose who we do business with.

Bemis Union Workers vote STRIKE – You freak’en crazy

16 07 2009

Terre Haute, IN  – Workers at Bemis voted to strike cause their upset over the planned “Health Risk Assessment” employees must participate.   Labor Relations Board feels the company failed to bargin in good faith.

Why can’t someone picket / strike / the INSURANCE COMPANY that is behind this whole thing?   Convince me the agent DIDN”T tell the company where to save money?   The truth, they would rather insure clients that DON”T use Health Care Benefits.  

But just the concept, regardless what the hell is going on, of Striking in this ecomony is this side of plain nuts.   Why don’t you people take a 200 mile drive NorthEast to Elkhart and get a real taste what BEING OUT OF WORK DOES FOR A COMMUNITY.

Whisky – Going Green?

23 01 2009

whiskyBusiness Green – That’s right Scottist Distillers have taken the term ‘Environment Friendly” to the level even I can understand.   An the local government was happy to endorse their efforts.

The plan calls for expanding the ideas toward using by-products for other sources.   A Whisky based envirnoment, what a dream come true…. 

Someone send a message to Kentucky and Tennesse.

Chicago – most stressed city – No kidding?

19 09 2008

Those of you (in chicagoland) drying out from last week’s late season rain, coupled by the endless construction on the highways with the first month of kids back-in-school, certainly understand stress.

Gas prices, all over the map from $4.10 (today) to whatever.  Unemployment figures keep inching higher, foreclosures in Kane County still rising.  Bensenville about to be eliminated with the exspansion of O’Hare.  What else could happen…..

Tomorrow I just plan on taking a break from everything and go fishing all day with my wife.  The picture you notice on the top is actually that of Meacham Grove in Bloomingdale, IL   With the rains we when through our garden an dug up plenty of worms for our little get-away adventure.   Plenty of bluegil, bass, catfish to keep us happy and busy till sun goes down…

One interesting note, here @ wordpress the blogs of note are changing.  Changing in the fact the content or story lines are becoming more “Social”.  Religion, health, family which is fine but obviously this pushes me to seek other outlets.  

Blogs about “business” and the Buisness of Social Networks are being swallowed by traffic driven events like your cat or which God saved the life this week.   Which only verifies the fact people are using blog to escape the Stress from their normally mondain life.  

Which is why I’m going fishing…..

I want to see My Doctor…
