Hello and welcome back to the Dogpound where you can learn something new all the time. For example I often go to work after-hours and there are two ways to get into the offices. One is through the main lobby and that door has an alarm system which is a bit of a pain to operate. You have 60 seconds to check if the alarm is on or off and if it is on you have to enter the password code which is conveniently written on the wall behind the picture frame that hangs next to the security box. [I kid you not]. So once you are in the clear, you have to repeat the process when you are ready to leave except, sometimes the security will not reset because one of the doors is not completely closed. So you have to go back around and make sure everything is secure before the alarm can be properly set. Now the other way is through the visitor’s entrance which has two locked glass doors to enter and no security alarm to defuse, so it is much easier to enter the building this way plus it allows me to reach my office without a security check. Now there is one problem with this entrance…the main bathrooms are in the secure area; however, there are bathrooms in the plant but on weekends to save power they turn off the lights. So I have two choices …go into the secure area and play with the alarm system or negotiate the plant bathroom in the dark using the light from my cell phone. I usually chose the latter even though it is a bit tricky maneuvering in the dim light of my cell phone but I manage to make it work . Now this is where the learning point comes in; I discovered this weekend that the power in the plant bathrooms is not driven by a remote main power station switch..they are operated by a light switch on the opposite wall of the bathroom. So, as quaint as the saying might be…..let there be light. LOLOL
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

A blonde walks into the library, looks around, then gets in line for the counter. Once she gets to the head of the line, she loudly says, “I’d like a Big Mac, large fries, and a large Coke.” The librarian looks at her for a moment. Then whispers to the blonde, “Ma’am, this is the library.” The blonde nods. Then she *whispers*, “I’d like a Big Mac, large fries, and a large Coke....”
A company was conducting an employee safety meeting and the safety office asked the group if they knew what the speed limit was in the company parking lot. A voice from the back, “That depends, do you mean coming to work or leaving?”
That is a wrap. As always be good, play safe and remember to always keep your cell phone fully charged..just in case.
