Things I Learned Today

  1. When you fly on a private jet, you don't get that stupid ear-pressure-pain-thing as you descend.
  2. Trenton is south of Princeton.
  3. Grainger has a cooler headquarters than Bristol-Meyers Squibb.
  4. ATM machines will eat your ATM card if you don't take it out within 15 seconds of your transaction timing out.
  5. There are many Route 1's in New Jersey
  6. I am far too used to driving my car.
  7. Some Marriotts have landline Internet, some have wireless.

I remember learning (4) the hard way. It was annoying.

Re 1) Nifty!
Re 4) Not nifty.
Re 3) But the real question is how do the database people compare?

That would be great, except my car will be in NM. Oh and I might have a strapping Scottish lad with me.

Looks like I'll be disconnecting for about an hour to catch lunch in the Building 2 Cafeteria at about 1230. See you there?
