The Phonex Times
Issue Number Eight
What a beautiful time of the year. If you can help it, go to someone else's house for Thanksgiving. I had the family Thanksgiving at my house a few years back. Big mistake.
I've never worked so hard in my life. Not that digging a foxhole in the desert sand was pleasant, but my family can eat! I think my family is solely responsible for raising the Gross National Product for the country around this time of year.
In case you were wondering
From the company formerly known as Lucent....
"As a new, made-up word, the name Avaya - pronounced "uhv-EYE-uh"-- has a certain flair to it that says we're new and different. It sets us apart and captures what we're doing as a company - becoming independent, focusing on our customers, and moving forward to define ourselves."
Funny you should say that....
(Interesting quotes about telephones)

And one from our British cousins...
"The Americans may have need of the telephone - but we do not.

Joke of the day
The young couple invited their parson for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.
"Goat," the little boy replied.
"GOAT?" replied the startled minister, "Are you sure about that?"
"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'We might as well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day.'"
