Happy Christmas and Holidays December 21, 2008

While taking calls for work this season, I noticed that some people seemed offended when I said “Happy Holidays” to them at the end of the call.  They usually respond with “Merry Christmas”, in a slightly scolding manner.  Although I use the phrase “Happy Holidays” in an attempt to be inclusive of all the world’s religions, apparently, some people still don’t feel included by that phrase.  So I spontaneously started using “Happy Christmas and Holidays” last night, to see what response that might get.  Tee hee hee.

Since my holiday card printout formatting didn’t work out so well, I’m sending out greetings to everyone this way this year.  Warmest wishes to everyone this season!  Georgie

I hope this card finds you and yours happy and healthy this holiday season.  I’ve moved to a new place in Willis, VA with my new dog, Bodie.

I’m working for a well-known retail shopping network, taking calls in my home office.  It’s nice working at home, and the company has good benefits.  My dad is feeling some better now, after completing cancer treatment in April.  Since last fall, I devoted many hours to collecting signatures, making phone calls, and distributing materials for the Obama campaign.  I plan on continuing to volunteer for various worthy causes in the upcoming year.  Best of luck to you in 2009.

 

welcome

Welcome to my new outpost on the web.  After reading blogs for years, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon.  I’m an ex-techie and paralegal who now does shift work for the heck of it.  This seems like a good outlet.

You may be wondering about the blog name.  If you’ve ever spent time out in the country, you’ve seen bunches of clover thriving around the meadows and fields.  Even in the city, clover peeks out from cracks in the sidewalk.  Since I’m practically writing to you from a cow pasture, there’s that.  Also, Wikipedia says that the term “node”, when referenced in computer networking, means

In communication networks, a node (Latin nodus, ‘knot’) is an active electronic device that is attached to a network, and is capable of sending, receiving, or forwarding information over a communications channel.[1] A node is a connection point, either a redistribution point or a communication endpoint (some terminal equipment).

In network theory, the term node may refer a point in a network topology at which lines intersect or branch[2].

That’s all the cleverness I could muster this afternoon.  I’d like to contribute what I can to the local Floyd blog scene.  Hope you enjoy your visit.
