A video with the lyrics to Farewell Song by Vaya Con Dios. Dani Klein's voice is so very seductive and plaintive. Farewell to 2010! Enjoy, happy Friday and happy New Year's Eve.

I am not a fan of the Ellen show but this is really funny. Ellen sends Sofia Vergara from Modern Family into a small store with an IFB in her ear and extemporizes a script for her to follow on hidden camera. Hilarity ensues.

Julian Assange's lawyers cry foul over leaked incriminating police files which accuse Mr. Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women. These files were published in a British newspaper. Interesting, when the Wikileak is on the other foot then it is not so acceptable. Transparency is a good thing, is it not Mr. Assange?

And we all know what that means. Time for another MOTW, Manager of the Week. This next manager has a very glib delivery, but lacks in follow up. Eventually the hot air he/she constantly releases catches up with him/her and it usually isn't very pretty when it happens.
Smooth Talking Manager has the ability to expound effortlessly on any topic in what appears to be the latest, most informed corporate vocabulary. This manager relies on his/her verbal skills to carry the day and mostly succeeds. However, when the rare failure happens, due to going to the well once too often, it is usually a spectacular flameout that is talked about for many years. As a general rule Smooth Talking Managers have little or no execution skills.

Something we all wish we could do. Here is the legend himself, J.J. Cale, in the studio performing his tune Travelin' Light. This man has influenced too many rock/blues/country legends to count. Probably the most known example is Eric Clapton who made two of Cale's tunes, After Midnight and Cocaine known to millions.

Have you ever called customer service and waited seemingly forever for a real human to come to your aid?
Being lost amidst the netherworld of muzak and multiple options on an automated voice response helpline can be extremely frustrating, especially since the the reason you called to begin with is your product isn't working the way it should be. Here are a few tips to try and get that human on the phone that much quicker and avoid some of that frustration.

Perhaps it is a message to the Treasury department not to print money after all. Everyone knows it is inflationary to print bills and pump them into the economy right? Well, when your government can't even get that right then you know that your economy is in trouble, or... perhaps is being saved from itself. Get a load of this.
Must be linked at all times through on-line capability with the office. Failure to do so results in cold sweats and nightmares. Constantly knows what his/her staff is doing/thinking via remote on-line real-time access. Backup systems include Blackberries, cellular phones, dedicated landlines, instant messaging and as a last resort smoke signals.
