Editor’s Note 3/18/2016

I was in an office this week and noticed something I must bring attention to. There were two men applying for a job. One was wearing a suit and tie, the other droopy jeans and a dirty t-shirt. The man wearing the tie had a 20 minute interview. The one wearing jeans had a 5 minute interview.

I don’t know if either got the job, but if one did it was easy to figure out which one.

If you go to a job interview, dress your best. Even if it is a pig farming job. My advice is to dress as if you were going to a wedding. Not in a tux, but at least a dress shirt and nice pants.

It seems like common sense, but apparently some people don’t get it. I hope my advice helps someone.

I want to remind everyone that if you see me at an event, come say ‘hi’ to me. I really enjoy meeting residents. I was at an event recently and I could hear some women saying they saw me. Why didn’t they just say hi? I am very approachable.

It looks like more people plan to see The Bees this year than saw the Rock Cats last year. I think the Rock Cat fiasco is really going to improve attendance. Residents felt betrayed and now want to show their allegiance to New Britain. The Bees should get a lot of attention. Their gear should sell like hot cakes. I know I want a hat and t-shirt.

It seems the local election season has started early this year. A few people have announced they are running for office. I suggest residents keep a good eye on who is running and their track record. If you want change at the state level, then vote accordingly. If you are happy with the way things are, then stick with your candidates.

Of course the national election seems like it has been going on for years.

A quick reminder about the SolarCity seminar on March 22. It is at 6 p.m. at Scraptivity in Berlin. I expect to see a lot of you. It’s time to join the discussion. Bring your utility bill so you can see how much you can save. It’s not all about saving money. It’s about saving the earth.

Time for a joke from Facebook.

“Smonday: The time when Sunday stops feeling like a Sunday because the anxiety of tomorrow is Monday kicks in.”

I must admit I hate that feeling. It usually hits me around 6 p.m. on Sunday evening.

Until next week, enjoy Sunday and keep reading YOUR #1 Most Trusted New Britain Newspaper!
