Amen, Dr. Pyro. Amen. May their souls find peace. Brave men.

And you can say the same thing next month at Gettysburg and Vicksburg. on July 4, no less. May they all find peace. Including Bill, who was a Korean War era ski trooper in Alaska.

May all veterans find peace.

Well Fuck. We have been under a compensation study at work to try and "fix" issues created by past management regarding salaries etc. "position" includes classes, so say you are a Computer Tech, all grades, I, II, and III are considered "in position" so if you have been "in position" for over 10 years you don't get a raise because:

"The purpose of the time in position adjustment is to differentiate salaries between employees with less than two years and those between two and ten years. Based on input from compensation professionals and industry standards, an employee typically reaches their maximum level of learning in a position within three to four years. However, the management team team decided to expand the scope of the adjustment to ten years in recognition of the efforts of our longer term employees?"

So the fucking idiot sitting next to you that you still have to tell what to do got a time in position raise, but if you have been here over ten fucking years, you don't get one.

Basically, our senior management just told voting employees "why yes, we do want a union."

I'm still shaking my head and laughing. I can't fucking stop.

Fuck.
Gonzo and I had just been befriending a local burner named Tom or "Eye-Full". He had a 40' swing that he'd set up around 5:30 for the last 5 years. He had been meeting with us frequently about volunteering for the Pottie Project this year on a full time basis. He was very enthusiastic.

Last Wednesday 6/5, a few hours after gonzo and I met with him,he hit a tree at a tight turn and flipped his porche. He is no longer with us. He was a very kind man and a new friend that we were bonding with exponentially with every meeting.

We will be going to the Temple this year for him.

Fuck.

Wow, Robbidobbs

Really sorry to hear about your friend! Remember the good times and the blessing he brought into your life.

Even though I can't get to the temple, I will certainly remember those who have been lost along the ways.

...or it could have been independently conceived. Plus they are substantially different, they are doing a 3d cube with art that is sent in to them prior to gate on canvas with the submitter's vision of the future while yours is a quilt done ad hoc, on playa, on a 2d (more or less) crochet square with fabric marker and is meant as a reminder of the people you have met. Notwithstanding the fact that BRC is big enough to handle multiple variations of the same theme even within the same year.

In 2011, I did over-sized alphabet blocks for Rites of Passage and there were at least three other variants on that that I'm aware of (probably more).

Of course, mine was a biting commentary on twitter and was brilliantly placed on Kindergarten but I may be just a tad biased

But fuck! anyway just 'cause.

Thank everyone for support over Eyefulls accident. Was just trusting a classic Porsche too much on a lousy, poorly graded turn but now we are down to about three burners in this half horse town. I will miss him but we have nobody to talk to anymore. I miss him. Will get offline and get over it. Neveer lost close friend before. FUCK!

I just received word that a 4th extended family member has passed. He was 46 years with cancer and tonight had a massive heart attack!

Guess I'll be heading to another memorial within the week!
