Caterpillars, moths, butterflies and all creatures great and small,

Black butterflyHave you ever had one of those times when the mail has piled up, there are phone calls you need to make and some to return?   Well, that is what has happened to me.

Last week, I made some business calls.  If I were a poet or song writer, I would write lyrics for a piece titled “Press 1.”  I got so tired of pressing 1 to listen to menus that led to other menus and other menus, that I almost tossed the phone in the air.   Three days of that, and I still haven’t spoken with who I need to speak with.  So, today I try again.

While I was pressing menu buttons and holding to speak with someone who wasn’t the right person who transferred me to yet another person who wasn’t the right person, who transferred me and lost our connection, the mail sat unattended.  Now, I need to catch up on the mail too.

Maybe customer service experiences are a good topic to talk about???

A big shout out and thanks to all new subscribers, visitors and participants.  Thank you!

Please use this thread to talk about whatever is on your mind.

    • The cardboard figure does not seem to be in the right position to receive a bullet that enters in the lower right and ends up in arm pit of left arm:

      “Perhaps the most informative image shown by Dr. Simons was the thoracic x-ray. This shows the entry point of the bullet by the yellow mark in the lower left-hand corner of the x-ray, and it’s resting point around Davis’ armpit by the circle in the upper left. The bullet track took the bullet through the diaphragm, through the liver, through the diaphragm again, through the right lung, between the heart and the spine where it cut the aorta, through the left lung, and to its final resting place.”

      “Another key part of Dr. Simons testimony is where she used both her own person, standing before the jury, and a moveable mannikin with dowels illustrating the bullet impacts and tracks to show that Jordan Davis was almost certainly leaning away from the source of gun fire when struck by the bullets.

      • “The gunshot wounds to Davis’ legs were also discussed, but neither of these would have been fatal, and so received somewhat less attention except to further support the notion that Davis was likely leaning away from the gunfire when struck.”
