New Toy to Play With

Not much time or imagination for today's picture but it is photo related. We upgraded our phones (yes, it has a camera) yesterday so tonight we are still learning the features. My biggest challenge will be keeping off it while I am supposed to be working. Shouldn't be too hard though, I am so far behind, I will NEVER have everything caught up. In a way, it's job security since a lot of it is things that only I do. But I am not stupid enough to think that I am irreplaceable, nobody is. Now since my blog title is "ramblings" and photo's, I'll throw in some of the ramblings that many of you ladies may relate to, that is the glass ceiling in business. The company I work for treats me pretty good but I feel I have earned it. When I started there 15 and a half years ago, I was one of a handful of women in management (you could count us on one hand). The company itself was made up of 95% men, both in production and in management. In a lot of ways I feel I have to work twice as hard as the men, just to prove myself. But in the back of my mind, especially with the economy the way it is, I still feel that the hard work will pay off and I will have a job if and when the cutbacks start. Not quite sure how a new phone sent me off on that tangent but anyway here's my new tech toy.


  1. Looks like a super cool new phone. Is it an IPhone, A Blackberry or ????

    Sure hope you can hang on to the job in these tough economic times and I totally sympathize with your comments on glass ceiling!

  2. COOL PHONE! I want one of those :) They look so neat! I got a new toy today too...a new camera - I am soo excited, I hope you have as much fun learning yours as i do learning mine!

  3. The phone is a Samsung Instinct, I can even watch CMT music videos on it, CNN, Weather Channel,etc.

    Pretty sure my job is secure, I just get frustrated sometimes to see the guys in "the Boys Club" doing so little and getting by with it. But I also figure that "the powers that be" also know this, so when the time comes .... Most of the time, I just try to take care of my own job and ignore them.

    Jennifer - Congrats on the new camera.

  4. Cool phone Looks very high tech. Mine has lots of features but I just use it for making and receiving calls and texts.
