Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, I played the role of ScrumMaster for 2 teams. They allowed my teams to pick between waterfall and agile. Duh, we choose Agile. We were provided with a room that had all the trimmings like wall to wall white boards, a projector and colored index cards. I brought snacks for the room and the beverages were free. The teams even named themselves – Team Ying Yang & Team Destiny. Everything that i asked for was granted.

Happy President’s Day!

Today, we honor all past and present U.S. presidents. Historically, it was established in 1885 to honor one of our great presidents, President George Washington, which was originally celebrated on his birthday – February 22nd and called “Washington Birthday.” You will still hear many in the government call it by that name as well as people who went on before the New Millennium.  The 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act changed the date to the third Monday in February. This act was an attempt to create more 3-Day holidays for workers. It now never falls on the actual birthday of any past presidents and usually falls between the birthdays of President Washington and President Lincoln. All that being said, let’s talk about Mr. Washington.
