Blessings amid frustrations:
     Interesting day last Wednesday at work, because I spent most of the afternoon on a tour of the BCP site (the fallback site in event of a local disaster that prevents my employer from doing business at their main buildings). It was really interesting to see the place, talk through the disaster scenario presented, add to lists of needed supplies and try to imagine having to actually work there. A lot of labor put into a precaution that is hopefully never needed.
     Lots of setbacks during the evenings last week, due to either the female curse or a coworker wanting my help over the phone. But despite that, glad to be making slow but tangible progress on both improvements to DWoT and on the eBook cover illustration I'm working on.
     Related to that, I had a shocking surprise on the weekend. Vue had an upgrade patch it wanted installed, so I did that without paying much attention to the matter. Then to my amazement I discovered soon afterward that a lot of the glitchy issues that hindered my use of the software (and which I'd lost weeks trying to figure out and resolve last year) had suddenly disappeared. What a blessing! Since I hope to be spending a lot of time in Vue over the next few months, I really appreciate the boost in efficiency with the bugs gone! (Well, some of them.)

How are world has changed that companies have to
have disasters plans in place. Sounds like your company is well prepared.

That is great on the Vue upgrade.

Yes, considering the messes with Southwest and Delta this summer, I'm very glad my employer tries to plan for mishaps!
