Daily Thoughts 6/7/2011 (board meeting, idea man)

Daily Thoughts 6/7/2011

Last night I finished reading Founding Gardeners on the train.  I liked the statement about trees being necessary for good air and health by many of the founding fathers.  I also started reading Paul Allen Idea Man.  There are a lot of books about Bill Gates, this is the first one that I have seen about Paul Allen.  So far, it reads like a history of the creation of the home computer.  The first computer program which Microsoft worked on was Basic.  It describes Bill Gates and Paul Allen working together in small offices all night creating computer programs.

Last night I was at the special board meeting.  We had the Girl Scouts put in new landscaping outside the building which makes things look a lot nicer.  We may be getting further help from the girl scouts as well.  There was also some discussion on the upcoming book sale which is going to be this weekend.  I always like the book sales, they bring a lot of good will.  This time we are planning to take photographs of the book sale which should be quite nice.

The board also announced that our budget and our board of trustees will be voted on in June of 2012.  This is a big step to announce.
