7 Rules to Abide when Interviewing for a Job June 30, 2019

In the business of reading all manner of advice is offered in all kinds of genres. Some of it is worthwhile copying and some of it is worthy of passing  to others. The following, I believe, is good information for anyone applying for a job in an interviewing process. The original -- and where I found it -- was in Investopedia, a site that usually provides investment information and definitions for financial ratios like what is a P/E. I'll not be applying for work, but maybe you will? Here they are: 1. I am very familiar with what your company does. Letting a prospective employer know that you are familiar with what a company does shows that you have a legitimate interest in the business and are not just wasting their time. Do your homework before arriving for an interview. Check out the company website for information about products and services. Search for the latest transactions and pertinent business news.  Be sure to let the interviewer know that you are familiar wi

Revisit Wattpad/GMACDO for some older thoughts

On this summer's day it's quietly comfortable in my chair pausing to reflect on what I have done in the past. It's Saturday June 29, 2019 and I'm revisited some of my writings that were posted in the early 21st century to a fledgling website for writers. That site was and still is called Wattpad. Recently, they had been reported in The Globe and Mail in glowing terms that some contributors had signed huge contracts for new books based on that which has been previously published on Wattpad. To get this story started please click this link  to see and/or read my previous posts. Now I don't state that these are great writings but they could be classified as a good start. For example I will attempt to find a piece of Earnest Hemingway's earliest work; by now even his worst will have been published after his death in 1961. It's worth a try to prove my point. The very next day I found this singular sentence written and spoken by Hemingway:

Keeping One's Head Still...yes, it's about the golf swing

I'll call it an epiphany. On May 22, 2019 I recalled 'it'. "Keeping one's head still on the back and through swing until the ball is struck." A miracle occurred. 43 on the front and 42 on the back nine with a 21 handicap equals a net 64. Hallelujah. I am not playing again until June 12 as I look forward to the return match with the Brampton GC. On June 12, 2019 (after our lovely Aunt Mabel's Cruise to Bermuda was in the books) I was scheduled to play with the guys at Brampton, and of course the same tip would be employed. It worked again; this time I wedged into the fourth hole on number 4 for a birdie net eagle, and holed-out from the bunker on Hole 16 for another birdie. The score for the day was 41 out and 38 in for 79. The record showed the last 79 or better had been years and years ago. I was stoked, while my legs and hips seized up at home. Our club has its Medal Championships on June 22 and 23 and I'm registered. BGC has its Men's Day ev
