    Trip an hour day

    took me an average of 4 seconds per call
    therefore
    1st Trip 19 min. = 1140 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 285 calls --Busy
    2nd trip 24 min. = 1440 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 360 calls -- Busy
    3rd trip 31 min. = 1860 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 465 calls --#52
    4th trip 23 min. = 1380 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 345 calls --#311 & 749
    5th trip 19 min. = 1140 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 285 calls -- #338
    6th trip 15 min. = 900 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 225 calls -- Busy
    7th trip 20 min. = 1200 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 300 calls -- #993
    8th trip 20 min. = 1200 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 300 calls -- #444
    9th trip 12 min. = 720 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 180 calls -- Busy
    10th trip 18 min. = 1080 sec. / 4 sec. per call = 270 calls -- Busy

    201 minuets on the phone = 12060 seconds / 4 sec. per call = 3015 CALLS!!!!!

    3015 Calls and i only got through 6 times

    Burning my way through another year!

    Hope everyone enjoyed their day.

    Lily dog & I went out this afternoon into a fun little sn*w squall. Silly girl opened her mouth to catch a sn*wflake & nearly choked on a whole whack of 'em. That's when she insisted we go back inside. We're both waiting for the skiers to come pick up their misdelivered sn*w.

    Night all.

    What a fascinating account. Almost makes you wish you had known the fellow.

    In light of all that is taking place within our world and country, do you sometimes wonder where you can find peace and safety.

    Where is the Safest place in Canada?

    As you view this picture, I believe you will agree, we now know.

    Her death stings, because it is unfair, because Sarah Burke was too young and too smart and too pretty and too warm and too well-liked and too remarkable, as an athlete, to leave us so soon.
    Plug her name into Youtube and watch clips of the 29-year-old B.C. skier taking flight, blasting out of a superpipe and soaring up, up, with the blue sky as a backdrop and gravity, an earthly annoyance, as her only limit.
    Ms. Burke twists. Twirls. Flips. She makes us gasp, and it is amazing to see, especially now, knowing that every clip is a reminder and a memorial to a gifted skier who pushed the boundaries of her sport.

    Pushed them so hard and so far that Ms. Burke won four X-game titles, five World Cups and a world championship. She is the reason why the Olympic old boys club added women’s ski halfpipe to the program for Sochi 2014.

    Ms. Burke was doing her thing, being amazing and soaring, when bad luck struck her down. Slamming her to the snow in Park City Utah on Jan. 10, rupturing an artery that carries blood to the brain, triggering hemorrhaging, stopping her heart and causing irreversible brain damage.
    She died Thursday at the University of Utah Hospital.
    Of course, we know what happens next, because it always happens next: Ms. Burke’s tragic death will, somehow, if we allow it to, turn into something that it isn’t.
    But here is the thing: Extreme sports are labelled extreme for a reason. Going bigger and jumping farther and pushing limits involve a measure of risk. Shooting for the stars always does.
    And it is not a deadly risk, not in all but the most freakish of instances, circumstances like the one that has left us contemplating Sarah Burke’s ghost.
    How will she haunt us? What might she say? That she died doing something she loved? That people die every day on the job?
    Police officers get shot. Pilots crash. Journalists are killed in war zones. Executives expire at their desks. There is risk in everything we do and randomness in that risk, making this life of ours a whirling game of unforeseeable chance where, every so often, the roulette wheel stops spinning and your number unexpectedly comes up.
    This is not a safety issue. This is a life issue. So why don’t we look at Sarah Burke’s short life and see what it can teach us about living?
    Doug Pensinger/Getty Images
    Sarah Burke poses with her gold medal after winning the Women's Skiing Superpipe at Winter X Games 13 on Buttermilk Mountain in 2009.




    When she was a little girl her father, Gordon, promised her he would mortgage everything so she could ski. He would take her to the slopes where a young girl with big dreams watched the boys competing in big air competitions — boys she knew she could beat — and where she wondered: why not me?
    Why not girls?
    It is a question Olympic organizers could not answer.
    There are other lessons: a short Ski Channel documentary featuring Ms. Burke and her extreme sports star husband, and childhood sweetheart, Rory Bushfield.
    In it we see the couple sitting in the back of a cab, telling their story, talking about a great love and a life together in the mountains.
    “It is what our lives are, being on the hill, and there is a reason for that,” Ms. Burke says. “It is where we met, where we play, where we live and hopefully where we will die.”
    Amen.
