Jean and Joe Thornton…..Happy Anniversary! Forty years!
The event was celebrated with a small group of friends last night at Berlin’s. Janyne one of the party.
Bria payed Jean and Joe lovely compliments and then invited them to dance as she sang.
A lovely couple. A Key West loved couple.
I was at Berlin’s last night with Jenna for dinner.
At least two months since I’ve seen Jenna. She is always working, on the road or running.
She spent Christmas in Indiana with the family. Followed by a week in New York City as Reuben’s guest.
Jenna…..Always beautiful, always striving.
I think Anna and Everett were at Berlin’s also. Shamefully, I did not recognize them. Realized as I was leaving they were new found friends from Aqua and the Chart Room this past week.
Exciting days coming at the end of the month. Exciting to me.
From 1/30 to 2/2, three World War II planes will be on exhibit in Key West. Three planes that helped win the War. Three planes I played with during the War years. Making models.
The B-24 bomber, B-25 bomber, and the P-51 Mustang fighter.
The place, the Key West Airport.
The planes are on a 110 city tour.
Syracuse/Pitt at noon today. Syracuse a 3 point favorite. The game not available on TV. I had wanted to watch the game with Dan Reardon. When your team sucks, TV ignores your team.
On this day in 1789, George Washington was elected the first President of the United states. Only white men who owned property were allowed to vote. Voting restrictions existed even back then. Its purpose then and now to protect the turf of those who are part of the so called establishment.
More re the robot invasion.
IBM Watson has designed and produced robots to replace insurance claim workers at a Japanese insurance company. Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance.
Thirty four human insurance claim workers will be replaced. Beginning this month. Replaced by the IBM Explorer AI robot.
The robots will scan hospital records and other documents to determine insurance payouts, factoring injuries, patient medical histories, and procedures administered.
The robot cost $1.7 million. Plus maintenance of $128,000 a year.
Fukokou will realize a savings of $1.1 million per year on employee salaries. Providing a return on its investment in less than two years.
In addition, productivity is expected to increase by 30 percent.
Just the beginning! Time is now to worry about how human employees replaced by robots will be transitioned. Actually, yesterday was the time. We are always late.
Enjoy your day!
