"Be a scientist and explorer of things. Look at everything around you as an opportunity for ingenuity. Tinker with odds and ends. Take things apart, study them and test them. Learn what you can. Look at things from all angles to get different perspectives. See the world with fresh eyes. Treat each day as a treasure to unearth, each moment as a secret to discover. Spring back to your previous prizewinning creative self."
Marcie Cuff writes on the Penguin blog about how we can still be creative as adults. Check out the full post here!

Bottom half of a page of handwritten lyrics - I’m not really sure where the corrections in pencil go, so I’ll do my best.

Since the day I went away Babydoll
I though of you, my heart away
My lips, my soul, my everything
"do be" yours
But if you “do be” forgettin’ me I will
throw myself into the bay
Cause only you “do be” my
Babydoll

Mr. W.K. Williams
Bldg 4-6

The accompanying copy of “Punch In, Susie!” is presented to you with the compliments of the General Electric Company. Written in an honest and straightforward manner, it gives an interesting picture of the reactions of a newcomer in our organization.

The author, Nell Giles, is a staff writer on the “Boston Globe” who took a “job” at our West Lynn plant for the sole purpose of “writing the glamour our of women in war.” Her day-to-day experiences while at work in our plant were published in Miss Giles’ column in the “Globe” and attracted the attention of thousands of readers.

It is an a musing story, but despite its humor it contains a wealth of material that should prove to be of considerable value in enabling us better to understand the reactions and problems confronting our arm of new employees.
