Plumbing/ESL Issue

"You may have sensed an odor this morning in the common areas. Please be informed that there was a plumbing issue, and our maintenance department reported that it is fixated now. I apologize for any incontinence that it may have caused."

I got this in an e-mail at work the other day. The potential for disaster is high from someone who's always in a hurry and is not a native English speaker. As long as the incontinence has been fixated, it's all good, though.

I watched the flat track race on the NBC Sports Channel Thursday night. 1,2,3 finish for Indian again. Pretty decent TV coverage as well. Everything was condensed down to one hour with decent coverage of the singles as well as the whole feature event for the twins. Nice to see some motorcycle racing besides Supercross on television. It would be even nicer if there was some type of a regular motorcycle variety show - maybe they do and I just don't know about it.  A one hour format that covered the different types of racing, touring, camping, restoration, etc. Interviews with people involved in the industry, plant tours, museums, rallies - there's no shortage of topics. And if you could keep the commercials to a minimum, that would be even better. I'd be willing to travel to Europe to report on a few of the events and museums from over there. The Moto Guzzi and Sammy Miller museums for example.

I started my vacation yesterday and it was a beautiful day for it. A little rain early but then it cleared up and was a beautiful summer day. It looks like it's going to be nice for about five more as well. I took advantage of the day and did a little bit of landscaping and hung some work clothes on the line to dry after going out to breakfast with Cuzzin Ricky. I didn't do much else but that's OK, being that it was the first day of the vacation. I'm working the boxing gym this morning because Jimmy took some fighters to the Ringside tourney. Not sure what I'm going to do after that. I don't really have any specific plan for the next three weeks but I'm really starting to like it that way.

Enjoy the weekend.

Fixated incontinence. I can only imagine the number of times I sounded like that when I was living in Spain. Ha!
