Yesterday, Beverly and I had lunch with two good friends, Duke and Nancy Okes. Duke had recently sent me an autographed copy of a book he had written, Root Cause Analysis. He had mentioned me in the preface to his book as one of his mentors. That was a pleasant surprise for me. You can read all about Duke and his consulting company at APLOMET.COM.
We enjoyed our lunch with them and getting up dated on happenings in each of our lives. It seems Duke is a regular reader to my blog. Thanks Duke!

Someone pointed this out to me:

it spells "Theirs."

Joke of the Day
A backwoods couple was delighted when finally their long wait to adopt a baby came to an end. The adoption center called and told them they had a wonderful Japanese boy, and the couple took him without hesitation.
On the way back home, they stopped by the local college to enroll in night courses. After they filled out the form, the registration clerk inquired, "May I ask you a question? What ever possessed you to study Japanese?"
The backwoodsman said proudly,---In a year or so, our adopted son will start to talk. We want to be able to understand him."
