Let’s Do Lunch – Part 3

It’s the last of my delicious yummy lunch special menus for you!

One last time, here’s what’s going on:

That’s right, until July 27th, more than a dozen downtown restaurants have special menus and deals if you head there on your lunch hour. It’s the perfect excuse to go out and try something new – because we Winnipeggers love a good deal. And to sweeten the deal,when you eat at one of the participating restaurants, you can get a ballot and enter to win a restaurant tour worth $500!
I’m going to be giving out some gift certificates to the participating restaurants too, if you just tell me in the comments which yummy menu item you’re dying to sample!

    1. it is illegal now. It peassd in June before the legislature closed for the summer. The police are just not enforcing the law yet as the government wants to run a public awareness campaign before enforcement starts.

    1. A couple of cotmmnes about “normals” As mentioned in previous posts, “normals” are based on 30 year averages which are re-calculated at the start of every decade. This is the standard set by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and is used by weather services all over the world. Currently, normals are using averages over the 1971-2000 period. In 2011, normals will be based on the 1981-2010 averages. Normals are thus derived by looking at 30 years of weather data for a common day, and coming up with an average high, average low, etc. over that 30 year period. But using just a single average value and calling it “normal” does not give the whole story about what the weather should be like on a particular day. In reality, “normal” should be defined as A +/- B, where B is the standard deviation based on the variability of the weather over those 30 years. So if the average high for today is -6C, and the standard deviation over 30 years of data is 4C, then “normal” is really anything between -2 and -10C. (-6C +/- 4C) The average of -6C is just the midway point within a range of equally probable values for that day. Thus, a below normal temperature for this day should be defined as anything below -10C, and above normal would be anything above -2C. “Normal” is anything in between. In the winter, the standard deviation is large because temperatures can vary so widely, much more than summer. So in the winter, the “normal range” is much wider than in the summer. That’s why you can’t compare 14 degrees above normal in the winter to 14 degrees above normal in the summer. They are completely different distributions. (If none of this makes sense, look up normal distributions and standard deviation on the web or statistics book..)

    2. she died so that I would have to miss work on the busiest day of the year. He then asked if we could chgane her burial to Friday. He said, That would be better for me. (Shipping Executive, FTD Florists) 10. We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees. (AT T Long Lines Division) 11. We recently received a memo from senior management saying, This is to inform you that a memo will be issued today regarding the subject mentioned above. (Microsoft Legal Affairs Division) 12. As director of communications, I was asked to prepare a memo reviewing our company’s training programs and materials. In the body of the memo one of the sentences mentioned the pedagogical approach used by one of the training manuals. The day after I routed the memo to the executive committee, I was called into the HR director’s office and was told that the executive VP wanted me out of the building by lunch. When I asked why, I was told that she wouldn’t stand for perverts (pedophiles?) working in her company. He showed me her copy of the memo, with her demand that I be fired, with the word pedagogical circled in red. The HR Manager was fairly reasonable, and once he looked the word up in his dictionary and made a copy of the definition to send to my boss, he told me not to worry. He would take care of it. Two days later a memo to the entire staff came out, directing us that no words which could not be found in the local Sunday newspaper could be used in company memos. A month later I resigned. In accordance with company policy, I created my resignation letter by pasting words together from the Sunday paper. (Taco Bell Corporation) 13. This gem is the closing paragraph of a nationally circulated memo: Lucent Technologies is endeavorily determined to promote constant attention on current procedures of transacting business focusing emphasis on innovative ways to better, if not supercede, the expectations of quality! (Lucent Technologies formerly a division of AT T)

  1. They all sound good! I’m just happy when somebody else does the shopping, cooking and the clean-up! And best….no leftovers to contend with…. I know that whatever I am lucky to win..it will be appreciated! Thanx! hugs, Lorraine
