Random Noise: January 2018

January 18, 2018

As we begin 2018, I would like to say thanks to all our sponsors (many long time) who have supported us throughout the year(s).  Thanks also to our presenters who hosted meetings and provided informative presentations.  We look forward to their continued support in the upcoming year.  As always, the Central Valley SBE welcomes businesses who can benefit by sharing their products and services in presentations or Newsletter sponsorships.

A reminder to current SBE members that membership renewal forms will be sent out soon. You can renew, using either the quick and easy online form at the SBE website, or the paper form at the bottom of the letter you will receive. If you’re not a registered SBE member, check out the benefits at the SBE website and join the current 34 members of Central Valley Chapter 66.

For those of you who added “Be More Organized” to your 2018 New Year resolution list, here is a L I N K  that should assist you in that endeavor.

Thursday night January 25th at 7PM is the SBE66 Meeting/Pizza Bash/Italian Dinner hosted by your local Central Valley SBE (that’s us). If it’s been a few years, or never, since you’ve attended one, think about coming out and saying hello. There’s a lot of fun to be had on Pollasky Avenue on a Thursday night. It sure beats going through your old Radio Shack gadgets and removing the corroding batteries.

This is also our officer election night. SBE 66 appreciates the service of our current Officers, Ken Holden, Pat Fennacy and Steve Dresser who coordinate and keep the Chapter running smoothly.

Oh yeah, since we’ll all be getting a bit older this year (like it or not) here are a few things to think about:

  • I talk to myself, because there are times I need expert advice.
  • My people skills are just fine.  It’s my tolerance for idiots that needs work.
  • The biggest lie I tell myself is, “I don’t need to write that down.  I’ll remember it.”
  • I have days when my life is just a tent away from a circus.
  • These days, “on time” is when I get there.
  • Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes, then come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller?
  • Lately, I’ve noticed people my age are so much older than me.
  • “Getting lucky” means walking into a room and remembering why I’m there.
  • When I was a child, I thought nap time was punishment.  Now it feels like a mini vacation.
  • Some days I have no idea what I’m doing out of bed.

See you at the Thursday night Pizza Bash.
