I'm Really Sorry I Took The Time Out For Myself

I'm really sorry I took this time out for myself..said no one. Ever.

I go to my garden several times a day. Usually during 10 minute breaks. That gives me time to water parts of it. It usually takes two breaks to get all of it done. Sometimes three if I water the flowers too. I take pictures of the vegetables and post them. I like it. It makes me feel good about things I do other than work. Its time that I take out for myself.

How A Meat Thermometer Increased My Focus

Smoking chicken and grilling chicken are two different things. Grilling requires close proximity to hot coals. The cook eyeballs the chicken to determine if it's done or not.  Smoking has lower heat and longer cooking times. You can't really eyeball a smoked chicken for doneness. Looking at the chicken won't tell you anything. The skin may be crisp, but the breast meat isn't cooked. It takes time to smoke the meat to the right temperature. If you don't smoke it long enough the meat will be raw. Raw chicken can carry Salmonella. I can promise you that you don't want to have, or give your guest  salmonella poisoning. So the only sure way to avoid it is to use a meat thermometer. That's why I have one.  I was smoking chickens and needed it. Fortunately, I knew exactly where it was.

Stopping Hangout Invites From People You Don't Know

How To Stop Hangout Request From People You Don't Know

Disruptive Technology At It's Worst

You know the deal  You're in a groove. All the pieces are there, and things are falling in place. You used 25 Pomodoro minutes to plan the project. Then you took a five minute break to catch up on your circles. Time blocking is working as it should. Online everybody says hello, and there's been no evident shift in the world's rotation. All you have to is implement your plan. It's a sure thing. You thought you heard someone yell "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner".  Your phone vibrates, or you notification bell rings. Either way, you look up, and it's someone requesting a hangout.

Don't Go Towards The Light Jim!!

Instead of averting your eyes elsewhere, you stare at it. Just like the train wreck it is. And you pick up.  Even though you don't even know who it is.
