  Feed My Fish

I’m not sure why I find this as interesting as I do. Maybe its the near-natural movement of the fish. Any way, click on the picture and give them a nibble.

  Sailors Vote On NWU With Their Pocketbooks

Posted by Chris van Avery on 27Aug10.

The Navy has begun beating this drum pretty hard:

With the mandatory wear date for the Navy Working Uniform about four months away, Navy officials are worried a majority of the fleet won’t have the required four complete sets of the uniforms and all accessories by Dec. 31 deadline.

On that date, the NWU becomes the official working uniform of the Navy, replacing existing utilities and wash khakis altogether.

According to NavAdmin 287/10, released Friday, sales of the uniforms indicate the average sailor has purchased just 1.3 uniforms, “well below the four uniforms per sea bag which most sailors have been paid to procure,” the message said.

Perchance there’s a subtle, “enough already” message to Big Navy on the uniforms issue in there. And for those of you wondering, no, I don’t have any or intend to purchase a set until I know what my next job is. My current job is all about office work and lead by people smart enough to know you don’t need cammies in cubicles.

The constructive interference from three different projects and activities here at work has put a cramp in my blogging for the last few days and will continue through the week. I’ll still be reviewing my reading list and sharing items as time permits, though, so if you haven’t already subscribed to the feed, now might be the time.

  I’m Still Too Much Of An Operator

Posted by Chris van Avery on 04Aug10.

I spent the day today generating, on short notice, a four-page memo justifying a key component of the program I’ve been given to run. So, I guess I can finally be called a purple-suited b***-sh** merchant.

I must still have too much of the ship life in me, because, well, I feel dirty .
