Great Sign. Gone. :(

I am so sad.  On my way up Mt. Rubidoux, I always look for this sign.  It was in a backyard adjacent to the trail and I loved it. 

Maybe they are moving?  Maybe the economy got the best of them.  Maybe they got sick of it.  Either way, I miss this sign.

Lesson learned.

It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.
~John Steinbeck
It is amazing how a good night's sleep and a little determination can solve a problem.  There was something driving me crazy in my Quickbooks and I couldn't find how to fix it.  Honestly, I was feeling inadequate and downright dumb.  I was tired and had been working all day with Annie on a Fellowship proposal.  ::fingers crossed::

They all told me:

"Kara, leave it. Come back tomorrow with a fresh pair of eyes."

I listened, reluctantly as usual.  This morning, a Saturday no less, I came back in the office, disabled the alarm, sat down in a silent space and fixed it in about 4 and a half minutes. 

Lesson learned.
