I spent one summer during my college years working in a meat-packing plant. My job was to stand adjacent to a conveyor line, wearing multiple layers of clothing and gloves, and pack stacks of frozen hamburger patties in a box. As long as I kept up with the feed of burgers traveling toward me interminably, I was doing a good job.
While summer typically is the season of family trips to national monuments, lazy days at the beach and camping, winter is tradeshow season. There’s still time to make plans to attend to AHR Expo and the annual conference of Cooling Technology Institute.
This spring, I was delighted to see my hometown, which lurks on the western shore of Lake Michigan between Milwaukee and Chicago, take a page from those metropolitan areas and add an outdoor biergarten.
Some people may actually finish their to-do lists, but I’m not one of them. Don’t get me wrong — I would love to climb into bed knowing I did every last thing I wanted to that day. And I guess, to some degree, I do, but my to-do list is not done.
When it comes to computer security, my friends think I’m a Chicken Little. I use robust, unique passwords for every Internet-facing entity (websites and email accounts), aided by a secure password manager program that syncs across multiple devices.
