Abigail Update

My granddaughter Abigail came over today for a visit. Her mom has figured out that it is easier to work-from-home at our house, so we can play with Abigail and she can get some work done. Works for me!!

Of Crabs and Buckets

There is an old saying that the worst thing a crab can do is crawl out of the bucket. This article at HikeandSeek.com explains it in more detail and claims that the saying is a great metaphor for human group dynamics.

This week I learned that crawling out of the bucket is not the worst thing a crab can do. In my experience, the worst thing a crab can do, is not crawl back into the bucket when the opportunity presents itself and all the other crabs are assuring you that all will be forgiven.
