Email Etiquette

Email etiquette has been a pet peeve of mine for a while. Ever since I learned my lesson in 1998 that I shouldn’t CC everyone the same hoax, I’ve been on a personal crusade to see that people follow certain rules when they email.

I’m losing.

But I read this article today called How To Be a Boor and it’s good. It captures all I really want to say…except when you get an email that is a forward of a forward, etc, before you forward it again, please verify it at snopes.com! Go there. Stay a while. You’ll learn a lot about the lies going around in email!

So maybe equipped with this blog and this article, maybe I can win again?

One can only hope.

Thanks to Seth Godin for the link.

Miss the Beach

Today we decided to head out to the beach one last time before heading up to Vancouver. It’s going to be a different kind of place up there…but we’re looking foward to it.

We went out to what is referred to as “The Space Coast” becuase from where we sat overlooking the ocean, to the left was NASA‘s lauch pads and buildings (I think a rocket is going up tonight…bummer it didn’t go up while we were there). It’s not the greatest beach, but it’s a beach and that is what is nice. It’s always fun to be at a beach where I can dream of Jeanie.

I started reading Blue Like Jazz while there. Got through the first 3 chapters…it’s pretty good. It’s like a blog book! If you’ve read it, leave me a comment as to what you thought of it.
