    Electrical engineering internship

    CB: There seems to be one of the most obvious suggestions missing from this thread, although I'm sure that your daughter has taken advantage of it. The best advice she can get is from her peers about the local businesses that they have co-oped at. The career placement center at her school should have a vast library of feedback from past co-op students about the quality of their experiences. The best co-op jobs will come from a business that takes the co-op experience seriously and offers real project work opportunities as a member of the project team. They do exist, believe it or not. Now that she has narrowed her choice to the biomed field, she should be looking for biomed businesses that are advertising co-op positions, and doing her due diligence research on them, just as if she were looking for a real full time job. She should be in a good position having prior co-op experience in the engineering field. Best of luck to her, it's a great field to be in. Notwithstanding the negative nellies around here, engineering is a chance to be both creative and useful. I have been at it for almost 40 yrs, and never wanted to be doing anything else for a living.

    Tattoos, Smoking and "Class"

    Tats are currently in fashion, and I don't mind them on most individuals. They will fall out of fashion when the next generation refuses to get them because their parents have them.

    Cell phone alert this Thurs

    The building that I work in has no AT&T service at all. No bars; zilch, nada. But the test message came through and my phone started vibrating and noisemaking. Cree-pee.

    Hawaiian shirt season begins this weekend.

    I started collecting about 20yrs ago. I now gravitate toward the more abstract designs. This is my current favorite. I really like the M.C. Escher-esque vibe.

    Bob Dylan - The SECOND best lyricist?

    Man, so many.... Dylan is up there, but there are so many more. Tom Waits never disappoints, with lines like 'I don't have a drinking problem 'cept when I can't get a drink'. John Prine is outstanding as is John Hiatt. I will look at Isbell and get back to you.... Jimi Hendrix 'The wind cries Mary' is tough to top. That song sends me to another universe.

    Jump INTO a perfectly good airplane

    Absolutely crazy. Odds are pretty good that we will be reading their obituary within the next couple of years. Like the Flying Wallendas, the write-up will include the word 'plummet'.

    Very cool! I liked the lightning storms, and the planes that look like meteors.
