I survived spring break!

Just returned from spring break with my daughter and son and that was excellent on two levels. 

The first was a vacation. I know not everyone can afford to take an exotic vacation but just getting away from the weekly work schedule is great. We need time to recharge and get some down time. I hope all of you can find that space to get that time away from work and reset even if it is at home with the kids or significant others. I use the time to get my priorities back in line and focus on the next 6-12 months. That includes business and personal.

On the second level it was great to get away with my kids at this stage of their lives (over 21) and that they would want to spend their spring break with dad instead of a bunch of their friends.

 

On the SSB side:


Proper Pathogen Control Doesn't Have To Wait 30,000 years

(CNN) -- Scientists have unearthed a giant virus more than 30,000 years old from the frozen soil in a remote region of Siberia.

While this ancient virus is harmless to people, the scientists behind the find warn that the discovery suggests that the thawing of permafrost in polar regions, as a result of either climate change or mining, could bring threats to human health.

The ancient virus, named Pithovirus sibericum, infects amoebas, not humans or animals.

It survived in the Siberian ice from a period when woolly mammoths and saber-tooth cats roamed the earth.

This makes me think about disinfecting touch surfaces and killing off germs that are hanging around for hours not 30,000 years. You can use this as an example of proper pathogen control procedures. If you want to read the full article check this link:

Thats it for this SSB today.Sorry it is short, I said I survived spring break but that does not mean I do not need to recover. 

This Friday we will be  hosting an Airx Training Day at Bullen covering Airx and odor and pathogen control. If you would like to attend our next Training Day let us know and we will put you down on the list.

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
