Quote of the Week

“In the business world, a sheepskin is the jacks or better ante to get in the game—to get hired. It means you persevered for four years. I rarely care what the job applicant majored in. I’m going to train him. The degree tells me I’m getting the right material. He persevered for four years.”

- Brian Doran, VP for Quality Assurance, Landstar Systems, Inc.
In “What employers say they want,” The Greentree Gazette,
May 2005, p. 28

I noticed the glaring absence of posts on January 14. Too busy celebrating to be remotely concerned with faithful readers who quite literally hang on the witty and wisdom-ful(?) blogicisms that emanate from the literary icon and author of this site? hmmm?

Well, I guess you don't turn 48 every day. I hope you had a great birthday. Love and kisses, your much older friend
