Graduation Events

A little over a week ago, we received an invitation to the Awards Ceremony from TCD. Jordan was to be rewarded with 2 awards. TCD is a vocational school where high school students spend 1/2 their day at school and 1/2 their day at vocational school. the vocational school teach, cosmetology, fire science, nursing and culinary among other thing. Each subject at TCD gave out 2 awards, Superior Senior and Effort Award. Jordan received the Effort Award and the received a $1000.00 scholarship.

We are so proud of his hard work that he had done this year, not just with TCD but also with his overall grades his senior year. He really took this year seriously.
Since this is a holiday weekend, we decided to have Jordan's graduation party this weekend a week before his actual graduation. It really worked out for the best, the the weather was awesome and we had a really good turnout. Jordan also received some really nice gifts.

Another Session of Training Starts Today

Today I started another session of training Temps that were brought in to help us catch up on work that we are behind on.
Training 5 temps to learn a system is not all that easy, but we will get through it.
Hopefully they will catch on quickly and won't need much supervision.

I now have 9 people that I over see their daily work. (Kind of makes me sound like a supervisor even though I'm not even close to having the title or pay of one).

My Experiment Week 1

My experiment week 1. Ace Hardware Tomato Tower.
My tomato bushes grow great with hardly any production. Here is my $29.99 plus the cost of dirt and plants experiment.

I have one Big Boy tomato plant in the middle and one side I have a Cherry tomato plant and on the opposite side I have a Plum tomato plant. On the top of the planter I have 4 Geraniums and 1 Vicca plant. It looks kind a bare now but I am sure as the weeks pass by the plants will fill it out.
I will post as often as I can with updates.
