Keep Us on Our Toes
June 28, 2010

Know the exercise where you repeatedly stand on your tiptoes?

I thought of that this morning as I find that access to the Internet is down and I have a couple of e-mails asking why an e-newsletter story on Friday mentioned Morgan dollars in the headline but the image with it was a Peace dollar.

There is nothing I can do about the Internet. When you read this blog you will know that somehow or other the problem was corrected. That's a step forward.

As for the other question, I have more control.

How do you say "oops" gracefully?

Somewhere along the production route for the e-newsletter what was intended to be a Morgan dollar image turned into a Peace dollar image.

I know the process of transformation isn't magic, so it becomes a matter of trying to figure out how it happened.

This process is something like doing those exercises yet again of standing on tiptoes to get those muscles working properly.

Up, down.

Up, down.

Up, down.

You get the idea. It isn't pretty, but it is what is needed to continue to achieve proper outcomes.

Fortunately, readers care enough about the e-newsletter to want to keep me and everyone else here in Iola on our toes.

Up, down.

Up, down.

Up, down.

I can feel those muscles toning already.
