Hey, gang. This past year, I’ve been thinking a lot about the direction my life is taking. Jobs are being lost every day and even though “experts” are saying the recession is over, it’s going to take a while to recover. And, in my opinion, the jobs lost are not going to be available again. The way I see it, companies that downsized and heaped the work onto the poor remaining souls have likely gotten used to paying fewer salaries while still getting the work done. They really don’t care that each employee is now doing the work of two or three or four individuals for no extra compensation. All they know is that they’re liking not having to pay all those salaries and benefits. Now that the recession is “over,” why should they rehire the people they let go?
Hi, gang. Still working on getting that KHEN interview audio track up here. DJ Andi downloaded it to a CD for me, but when you take something off a CD, it’s a “cda” file, which nothing but a CD or DVD player can read. (I’m so not up on this audio technology stuff.) I can upload the file to the WordPress server, but it won’t recognize the file and I can’t seem to convert the file to something else. If anyone out there knows how I can get around this, I’d appreciate a suggestion from you.
Hey, gang. Looks like my cookbook, What, No Meat? Traditional Italian Cooking the Vegetarian Way, is being pushed to November. So, I have a couple of more months of sweating before it’s released. But I will definitely make an announcement. And for for those of you who have been trying to access my archived blogs, it seems there were some code shenanigans going on in the links. I apologize and it’s been fixed, so go ahead and gorge on my archived stuff—I know you’re just dying to!
