About Me

My photo
For me it is All About Being of Service & Living the Life of the Give-Away....

Being Mindful of those who are unable to speak for themselves; our Non-Two Legged Relations and the Future Generations.

It's about walking on the Canka Luta Waste Behind the Cannunpa and the ceremonies.

It's about Mindfulness and Respect. It's about Honesty and owning up to my foibles.

It's about: Mi Takuye Oyacin

What I Don't Understand #4


When someone has a job and refuses to do it because they don't like it (as in Library Childrens Services & Storytime)...but gets a promotion to do the same job she's paid to do but is NOT doing now?

What the hell am I missing here?

Why is it no one asked about her qualifications?

Defenders of Wildlife

BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling      Deepwater Horizon Rig Explosion (U.S. Coast Guard)

Congress: Stop the Next Oil Disaster

The Deepwater Horizon oil disaster claimed the lives of 11 workers, killed scores of threatened and endangered sea turtles, brown pelicans and dolphins, and devastated the Gulf Coast economy. The long-term ecological impacts of the disaster may not be known for years.
This week, the National Oil Spill Commission released its final report on the catastrophe -- but by itself, a report cannot avert another disaster.

Urge your representative and senators to take action now to protect America’s shorelines, wildlife and regional economies from another offshore oil disaster.

What I Don't Understand #2


Last week a Girl Scout calls the library. She asks me if we will help her with her "Silver Award"...if we will allow her to put a book donation bin for Children's books in the library.

As this is something we normally help with, I ask her to call when my manager is back from vacation, that's today, and I tell her that he'll be in @ 10:00 when we open.

At 7:58 tonight (2 minutes before we close) this girl and her father come in DEMANDING to speak to my manager. The young woman who helped them explained that he left @ 6:00. They continued to harass her, ranting that not only has he not returned their calls, but he didn't respond to her e-mail.

She apologized and expained again, that today was his first day back and he was very busy (We had other cranks to take care of you know?)... They refused to accept her explanation and rudely demanded his contact information (which they already have).

Well, because of their rudeness (attitude of entitlement) I'm going to ask that we not participate in her award.  I thought Girl Scout was a term of honor & represented "good citizenship".  I guess that was back in the "good old days".

What I Don't Understand #1

People who want you to reply to their e-mail(s) IMMEDIATELY....and when you do, Do Not respond back in a timely manner themselves!

Case in point. A long-tim friend wanted to see me this week. She insisted I respond Immediatley, which I did. It's been 3 days & she herself has not responded.

I have made ...other plans!

In the future I'll not hurry to answer her e-mails.
