Long Gone But Not Forgotten
IT has been a while since my last post (my gosh, it was August!). I have excuses that are legitimate and maybe not so legitimate. I'll start with the illegitimate ones first. First, I have to sit at the computer and do it. I hate to get started but once I start, I find that I always have something to say. I am a perfect example of inertia- Inertia is the resistance of any object to a change in its state of motion or rest. That's me; I definitely have the tendency to stay at rest and resist change. Secondly, the weather has been so nice; we have actually had a lovely fall season rather than the abrupt change that is common. Usually we have summer, oh, up until about Halloween and then we have a rather radical cold snap (we call them Blue Northers) on Halloween so that costumes include jackets and sweatshirts!
Now for the legitimate reasons for my long absence. The human beings in this organization have been difficult and it is like herding cats! They depart for several weeks and leave Bert, Ernie and I to do all the work, guard the house, and generally oversee everything. Some semblance of normalcy has now returned and I am finally able to return to my assigned tasks. I have done a complete re-design of the website and improved its content, started another website (www.suncityalice.com) made posts to Facebook and Twitter, started a Facebook Group called "The Sun City Texas Guide", taken some online webinars, attended conferences, and gotten the office in order. In short, I have been a very busy dog.
Once Halloween is over, the Holiday season officially begins and I have discovered that there is plenty to do in Sun City Texas and the Georgetown area. Boredom is not an option. I will be reporting on all the activities and making posts on Twitter and Facebook.
In fact, something really exciting that I just learned about was the new transportation system and services in Georgetown provided by the Capital Area Rural Transportation System. CARTS is having a Grand Opening and Open House to celebrate the completion of the Georgetown Station. I have watched this facility being built just south of Georgetown along the I-35 corridor. Filled with curiosity about this unique building, I wondered what the bizarre wind-generating turbine thing on top of the roof was and what this futuristic building might be. I recently learned all about the site and its innovative features and thought this is a significant development for Sun City Texas and Georgetown. The building not only has a wind generator, rain collection tank, solar panels, but resides on environmentally reclaimed land. I hope everyone will use this new facility, learn about its features, and appreciate and take pride in its "greenness".
Well, I'm back to work and doing a lot of critical thinking in narrowing down my costume choices for Halloween.
What do you think: or ?
