Decisions, decisions

Every day we make decisions. Decisions about when to get out of bed (how many snoozes the alarm will have), what to wear, what to eat, when to eat.

His cover letter … makes it seem like God Almighty sent him to you. Have you died and gone to heaven or what?!

Anyhooo, I built a company based on Lotus Notes/Domino. I became a Lotus Business Partner and got all the Lotus Notes software as part of that membership.
