I like my boss and I am not weird!

Yesterday was the first employee meeting in many, many, many moons with the boss. You see my boss at work is called the Fire Chief! And yes, I like my boss and I like what he stands for. There is nothing wrong with saying you agree with the boss! I just think he gets it while many others do not have a clue about what we do. If you do the right thing in life you will not regret it.

 I only reason I know what "The Boss" stands for is he lives it and secondly the signs are posted on the department’s web site, in all the fire stations and on the walls at HQ. Everyone should have some kind of "Values" in their life. The values we, as a department, believe it are Truth, Trust, Respect, and Unity. You cannot go wrong if you always tell the Truth. You are definitely living the good life if your boss and your co-workers Trust you and your judgments. We all must show Respect towards each other. Last, Unity means that we all believe in one goal and that goal to me is that my crew stays safe and we all go home in the morning.

 When you have to make a decision on doing the right thing remember this, “Could you stand in front of your parents and explain what you just did?" It’s a pretty simple question, but it will make you think if you made the right decision or the wrong decision. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Til next time.... tgb out!

What the heck Carlos!

Carlos Irwin Estevez aka Charlie Sheen -  what in the wild, wild world of sports are you freaking thinking, doing and acting like? I am just totally confused into thinking that the 1.8 million dollars, someone receives per episode for a TV show could really ruined your life. I am sorry, but I am thinking I would not have that problem if I went to work and they paid me that much...

Last night as I laid in bed listening Carlos being interviewed by Piers I thought to myself, "Dang there's another one lost to the Hollywood crowd!" Why is it when they throw money at people all it does is ruin them? The average Jack and Jill have their 2.5 children, go to work 5 days a week and attend church on Sunday. There life is not perfect, but it surely beats what these actor folks are living through. I think I will keep my weird life and continue on. I like paying my own bills, eating out when I want, attending my church and driving what I can afford.

 Is there something wrong here? Yes, there is! We all have made the sports athlete’s, actors and celebrity’s non human. We act as if they are all bigger than life itself and they are not. I think Carlos could not use some one on one time with the man. I would recommend him sitting out on a lake in a bass boat and looking up at the heavens and talking to GOD. He has a plan for all of us; some know it and others do not have a clue. Open up your ears and listen to what he says back!!!!!
