I forget which CEO of which Japanese company (suspect Honda) said this, but a memorable quote for me is, "Doing business is like shaving. No matter how well you do it, tomorrow you'll get up and have to do it again."

Of course, I have a beard, but I like the quote anyway Wink

I feel for you! In a previous life I managed a dairy operation... trying to give meds orally to cows can be, a chanllenge, to say the least. Just pray your horses do not get mastitis....

Yeah, not sure I'd do suppositories!

Feeding again this week, though no meds. I do have one locked up, so it's plenty of scooping action.

Routine? Normal? Daily grind? I have not been anywhere close to those concepts for years! When my customers need something they need it now! (Side Note: For those in the U.S. you've been seeing those ads: "It's my money and I need it now!")

I've began to plan crises. It's easier on management and takes the pressure off of sales. They can shoot from the hip and let us tech services geeks hammer out the details. Why should they do anything different? Rolleyes

If I were going for routine I could always say, "Paper or plastic?" or "do you want fries with that?" I could always go back to running an insurance agency. I sort of like the adventure. Software is not boring. I know, personally, two of the three guys that invented the Top 40 radio format. But "time, temperature, and play the records"? Not for me.

Don't get me wrong. The folks that do the routine jobs are just as valuable and every bit as worthy. Often we take them for granted. But these are the people who keep the lights on, the water flowing, and the garbage gone. Never forget that. It's just my job to make the tools that they use. It's my job to make their job easier.

glad to hear someone likes the chaotic atmosphere of development. I definitely prefer the routine, mostly boring, occassionally exciting work.

Greetings,

I know this comment is not related to SQL Server, but it may help some people with their small and bigger "pets". Too many times I see people strugling (Even vets!!!) to give medication.

For the dogs, when you need to give a pill, just dip it into peanut butter or fruit jam. I still have to find a dog who will not eat the pill right through.

For the horse, just take an apple, cut it in half and put the pills in the apple half (Most the the horses will eat the alf apple, but with a full apple, they make drop some pieces out of their mouth.

Thank you

My one dog doesn't like peanut butter. First dog I've seen like that. American cheese folder around the pill works well.

giving a horse aspirin is a pasty material. We've tried some stuff, including apples, and they'll skip it because of the bitter taste. Some times you need to just shove it in there Smile
