As we head into the weekend, we will probably be watching (again) the Apollo 13 movie from 1995 starring Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, and Ed Harris. While at a leadership class one year our Director at work included time for all of us watching the movie together. See you tomorrow for my Saturday blog post.
