I don't normally post, but a buddy sent me this gem. I thought it was quite amusing:
"Recruiter called yesterday told me she had .net developer position doing work in "The C Pound". Now, normally, I just hang up on recruiters, but when she said "The C Pound", I needed to know more. So, I politely corrected her and said "it is just called C sharp, but it is written as the letter C with a pound sign." She continued on with her little phone talking points but through the whole thing she kept calling it "The C Sharp." I declined her request to know more but I did ask where she attended school, and yes it was "The Ohio State University." This made my day."
And someone responded with this gem:
"Someone asked me the other day if I was looking to relocate to the Columbus OH area. I had to decline her and let her know that nobody is ever actually trying to relocate there..."
Happy OT Season!
Edit: C# is a computer programming language - the recruiter kept calling it "C pound" instead of C-sharp and she kept adding "The" in front of it.
The SB Team continues their tourney in Tampa today. The Team lost to Floriday 2-1 in 10 Innings. Megan Betsa get the loss by pitching all 10 innings. She finished with 6 hits, 12 Ks and 6 BB.
Kelly Christner had 2 hits, while Aidan Falk (RBI) and Courtney Richardson each had 1 hit.
Overall it was a hard-fought game that could have went either way. Florida scored was able to score in the 10th with a single to CF. We SAC Monte over to 3B with 1 out. However, we just could not come up with the key hit in the 10th.
In the 2nd game today, Team 40 dropped a duece against #25 USF 6-4. Tera Blanco was the starting and losing pitcher. She gave up 6 runs (4 ER) on 9 hits. She struck out 2 and walked 2.
Kelly Christner went 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored and a BB. Abby Ramirez went 1 for 4 with a run scored.
Gents, hope you are all enjoying your Saturday.
My fiancee's aunt is dealing with some health issues and started a GoFundMe to help cover some of the cost earlier this week. I know these get old on the blog, willing to take a bashing to make her happy. Husband in training, right?
Thank you for anything, go blue
Experts are training these vicious, wild animals to rescue avalance victims... without mauling them to death.
“They only think it’s impossible because of the reputation wolverines have,” he says. In the future, it seems, the most difficult part of his plan may not be training the wolverines, but instead convincing humans to reevaluate Alaska’s cuddliest “killing machine.”
Team 40 opened their season today with a 7-0 thumping of an over-matched Delaware squad. Just missing out on a run-rule win, the Wolverines got production from all up & down the order. Newcomers to the line-up Natalie Peters & Courtney Richardson both impressed. Meanwhile, Megan Betsa was absolutely dazzling in the circle, getting 15 of her 21 outs via the strike-out. Game 2 against Illinois State just now getting underway.
Season preview will be up soon - technical difficulties with the photos have it delayed at the moment.
Update: Michigan wins game 2 over Illinois State 4-2 behind a solid performance from Tera Blanco. The offense was a bit sluggish, but Courtney Richardson's 3-run homer put Michigan up by multiple runs, and Blanco made it hold up. One mistake by Blanco turned into an ISU 2-run homer, but outside of that, she did an excellent job shutting down a tough line-up.
My Daughter is a Freshman and will be leaving Mary Markley for independent living. very soon Without going into our conflict of where she should/wants to live I would like to hear your thoughts on the Pro's and Cons High Rise living vs Single Family Home life. With these projects building up ever so fast is the single family a dinosaur? I would love hear opinions from those who have lived in both dwellings or a parent like myself
