So I looked up the president of Synthes and in 2004 he was the richest person in Switzerland. Then he sort of dropped of the list. A bit more looking around and I found he's been giving alot of his money away for various things including conservation in southern Utah. So that's good right?

Work was quite hectic this week, I attended an orientation session primarily for product development people from PA to understand what goes on in the manufacturing of the things they design. It was basically showing them that things don't materialize from their computer screens, that there were a lot of people and hard work behind turning their designs into 1000 parts a month of output from the factory. It was a a lot of fun and i learned a bunchy about what goes on in product development and in other departments in Monument. Basically I learned Synthes is a good place to work for everyone.

Then I tried to do my regular job at the same time, working 11 hour days all week. It wasn't bad, but I didn't really have a chance to do much else. Oh well, sometimes it's nice to be paid hourly... I slept about 10 hours last night, and this weekend is looking to shape up pretty well with sunny weather in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

I'll end this with one of my favorite pictures:

Now out to the real world...
