@David: @MB you'll be extolling the virtues of bacon next :-)

How did that old American cowboy song go? Something like:

   {Deep voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher voice} Bacon, bacon, bacon,

   {Higher again} Bacon, bacon, bacon... Raw-Hide!

I forget the rest...

@MeasurementBlues: In the winter, I wear sweat pants (two pairs). socks (two pairs) boots, and gloves. Oh and three sweatshirts. It gets cold here.

Wus!

What do you wear when you leave the house?

@MeasurementBlues: I've been hanging around Max too long.

You are just letting your "Inner Max" shine through -- go with the rush -- it will make a man of you, my son!

Every day is "Shorts" day

When I first moved to the USA in 1990, as you say, every day was shirt and tie and real trousers -- except for casual Fridays when you could get by without a tie (I think the wearing of jeans came later -- certainly no shorts).

At that time --24 years ago now -- I don't think anyone wore shorts in England (excepting very young kids) -- maybe at the beach -- I don't recall. I know my friends were surprised the first time I went back wearing shorts.

Now, like you, I work in my own office (I don't work from home -- I have the Pleasure Dome) -- in the summer I wear shorts and Hawaiian shirts and sandles (I go barefoot in the Plaesure Dome) -- in the winter I wear jeans and Hawaiian shirts and sneakers.

Life is good :-)

Working at home

The other nice thing about working at home is my short commute down one flight of stairs. I was reminded of that today as I headed to the Mathworks. I figured 20 minutes, allowed for 30, but it took 40. And, that was a reverse commute. The traffic heading into Boston was far worse.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
