Desk Chit Chat: Going Along with the Crowd

As I approach, the main flock takes flight, as birds will do. The juvenile seagulls, (two brownish birds mid rock) remain on Earth, not following the crowd. Maybe to them, it's just parents flying off to fish for food to feed them. I'm sure one day as grown up birds they will take flight with the rest. For now, they appear content. They are a nice reminder that sitting right where we are can be good, no following necessary.

Last week felt like summer. As this summer's weather goes, it's cooler and raining this morning (afternoon sunny).

Some products decrease sizes without decreasing the price, and in some cases, I think the prices go up. A new pretty packaging with a higher price, my brain sees reasonable, until I read the amount is less. A good article on the situation in the UK. Worth a read, IMHO.
