Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

Work and Real Life

Today marks the end of the first trade show of the year. We are at the Consumer Electronic's Show in Las Vegas. The challenges are mostly centered around our health this year. Between the dry, dusty air and the casino stench, we are suffering headaches, nauseousness, overall bad feelings.

After several shows in Las Vegas, I've invested in a portable humidifier. It has been the best money I've spent for travel gear in years. It's a simple device about the size of box of thin mints. Every night, I turn it on high and set it on the night stand and point it at my head. With out this, I'm sure I'd be miserable here in Vegas.

I am grateful for working with Charley from out Atlanta office, he understands the needs and demands associated with working a trade show booth for our company. However, the stench has just about taken him down this trip.

Tonight will be a long drive home, one my husband is not happy I am making as the highway between here and home is one of the most dangerous in the country.

One of our demo's has U2 in concert and after two shows listening to them, I am no longer a fan...
