Blogger sure has created a new dimension in my after work "ketchup". While AOL e-mails are down, the GoogleReader updates are sure up. It is great to have our little community migrate, and I am pleased that a few more J-Landers made the leap today :o)
Day two of the Dynamic Learning environment was interesting. My second evaluatee was a two month employee who had not worked at a nuclear power plant previously. His initial training provided a good foundation in the fundamentals, but not the details. So I had to "fail" him [sorry Indigo, that is the phrase on the forms we need to complete] for the first attempt. But I spent a lot of time coaching and training him. The rules require that one of the other evaluators perform his remediation, and I am pleased to say that he passed attempt two :o) He was a great person, Midwest born and raised, and we spent a lot of time visiting while we did the evaluation. He shook my and and gave me a big smile at the end, and said, nice to meet you! What a great disposition to have that attitude. He knew he was new, and appreciated the support and coaching more than the stigma of having to go through the evaluation again.
Getting ready for the debate, and I am looking forward to discussion of the economy based on the two day 875 day redux in the market. Always looking for the silver lining, I bought some stock of one of the companies that I am trying to recoup some recent losses from. Will be interesting to see how the next week or two plays out.
Good Night Spotters :o)
