Happy April to all our readers! And, that’s no joke… April is the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar, the fifth in the early Julian, the first of four months to have a length of 30 days, and the second of five months to have a length of less than 31 days. Its name is derived from the Latin word aperit, which means to open. It is considered that April is the month of the growing season and when trees and flowers begin to “open”.

Here’s a nice photo submitted by regular reader and contributor Chip Mathieson.  Great photo before the snows come and we appreciate your sharing Chip.  Thanks!

Reflection in Orange

Speaking  of growing and opening, Sarah and I are both opening up to new challenges.  I have sold my share of Deep Creek Times to Sarah and she will take over full operations, including Daily Notes, going forward. I know she will do a great job and has some great plans for the future. We will still be partners in GeoComm Media Group (marketing and strategy consulting) and I will be guest blogging here on the Notes from time-to-time.  I must say, writing Daily Notes for almost four years has been fun and rewarding and I hope you have enjoyed reading my musings and news items.  Thanks for “tuning in” and I wish you all the very best…

I know that Brenda and team are a cohesive group that treat one another very well and have quite a good retention rate among employees.  But visit the job fair and engage and inquire for yourself if interested.
