Goodness, what a way to wake up!! During the night, I could hear the rain coming down, but then this morning a lot of crash, bang, booms woke us up. Pogo was okay until a couple of the booms got rather loud, then he started barking. I picked him up and held him until things quieted down a bit.
Good morning. Things have cleared up for now and the sun is coming out. However, the weather man says that we have more stormy stuff coming during the day and later this evening. As long as it doesn't get too feisty, it might help to cool things down for a while.
There's not a lot of news for today, so let's check out a couple more of those "weird" jobs. In China, you might consider a career as a fake businessman or executive if you look good in a suit. According to Mitch Moxley, he was hired by an American company, for $1000 a week, to be in China, shaking a few hands and watching movies. No experience needed. This is mostly to create the image of connection that the Chinese companies crave.
In Indonesia, there are passengers for hire. When the streets in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta, kept getting more crowded in the 1990's, the municipal administration enforced a consequential rule: During rush-hour, there should be at least three people in each car. Passengers for hire emerged. They would wait along crowded streets to be picked up by drivers, in order to fulfill the minimum occupancy per car. They earned a little more than $1 an hour.

Today will be a quiet day for me and Pogo. After I wash the breakfast dishes, I might just push the vacuum around a bit and disrupt a few dust bunnies. Then I may have a little nap. For some reason, I'm tired today. Pogo will keep busy watching out his door for whatever the birds and the critters may be up to. He's a very good watch dog.
Here's an adorable Minion cartoon explaining why one has to be very careful when exercising.
Before I take my leave, let me leave you with this fun puzzle that I borrowed from the web. See how many faces you can find.
Now I'm going to have my coffee and catch up on emails. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
